Good selection of regional brews and imports, really impressive for the area. Probably 350 plus different beers, with about 1/3 of those available as singles. A tad pricey, but they probably are the only place for 100 miles with some of these beers. Some beer glassware, gourmet groceries, wine and liquor as well. Knowledgeable and helpful staff.
Very nice store. They obviously go for quality they can get their hands on. Fairly nice selection of Stone, Thirsty Dog and Avery. Found lots of Bell’s and Bluegrass beers. Very cool and helpful staff. Visited again in 2006, I will return whenever I am in the neighborhood.
Nice place about 5 minutes off the interstate. Friendly, helpful staff that immediately commented on the beer shirt I was wearing. One long aisle of craft beers, accompanied by RateBeer shelf tags--seemed like almost everything over 90 score had a tag, which is a nice feature. Pricing seemed acceptable. I don’t live around here, but I am guessing it is the best selection in probably a 100 mile radius. I will return when in the area.
Kevin recommended I visit here and Starnes BBQ. Both were good suggestions. Ambiance: A welcoming store that is higher brow than anywhere in southern IL. There’s some gourmet foods, but the emphasis here is on wine, beer, and liquor. The walk-in, temperature controlled wine cellar was a nice touch. SERVICE: Was asked several times if I needed help finding anything. SELECTION: Very good. Great Lakes, Bells, Schlafly, Fullers Vintage Ales, Stone, Belgian rarities. Prices were on the high side, however. FOOD: Crackers, sauces, and such. OVERALL: Good store, although prices could be better.
visited while in paducah to see family. selection was great, employees know their stuff, have a lot of high quality brews and hard to find stuff. had an avery 10 sitting next to an avery 11. talked beer with the staff for half an hour, they were helpful with suggestions of things that i should take back to Texas. they hooked me up and i will go back when i visit next.

If you’re across the river in southern Illinois, this is best store you are going to find south of I-70 in the state of Illinois, the best selection of Belgians, imports and micros you are going to find, and that includes Corral in Granite City ,IL. If you have the time or can travel, it is worth it to come to this store for beer.
Probably the best liquor store in the area, but wasn’t adventurous enough to stop elsewhere. Selection is excellent for a small city in a rural area. Lambics, Belgians, and around 100 beers to satisfy the picky. A great selection of glassware. Picked up Paulaner and Leffe glasses for $5 each. A small selection of foreign cheeses, although the prices were not cheap. An employee told me they have about 400 wines.

this is the go to store for great microbrews here in paducah, it’s not the only store but it is the best with a current selection and often rotating one. The staff are extremely helpful and the "beer guy" kane knows his stuff. Not only do they have beer, but also tons of wine, liquors, and gourmet food products. They also have a rotating selection of taps that they fill your growlers with for example i’ve seen founders, DFH, schlafly, bells hopslam. at this point in time they have great divide chocolate yeti on tap! Awesome store for a small town.
