A small liquor store close to the Highlands. I walked in not expecting much, but got a few surprising finds. They had a large selection of wine, at competitive prices to the larger stores. Typical selection of liquor. One wall of coolers was dedicated to beers. Ever-present macros with a smallish selection of micros, but a few nice finds. I picked up a Rogue Imperial Pilsner in ceramic growler for $2.99! I’ve seen it sell for $13 elsewhere. Worth stopping by if you’re on Baxter or Bardstown. Potentially some good deals on singles.

Overview: Schreck’s Baxter Liquors is located in a building about the size of my two car garage. You walk into a claustrophobia-inducing store with some kind of faux wood paneling on the ceiling; beer is on the right about two paces (I exaggerate, but only a little). Service, in my experience, has been pretty standard, though I admit I don’t frequent this place nearly as much as in the past. As mentioned in virtually every review, the standard selection is nothing to call home about; "closeout beer" is the thing here. I’ve bought 750s of Rodenbach, de Koeningshoeven, and others for $3.99 before, but I haven’t seen anything like that in a few years. Mostly old seasonals that you wouldn’t want for anything else but cooking or getting sloshed. Prices are all about average otherwise, but the value is elevated with the presence of "closeout beer." Even this goes down from years past, due to the lack of interesting stock. PROS: Potentially great values if you get lucky. CONS: Everything else. OVERALL: Not worth your time these days; I’ll probably drop in once or twice a year if in the area, but the days of seeing discounted classics on the shelf are long gone.

The "selection" is not the star here. I have literally purchased $100 cases of beer for $13. When they have deals, they are outstanding.

Typical small package liquor store, once heard it was the oldest still operating in Kentucky. Best part is that they have close out beer. I’ve picked up cases of La Divine, Scotch Silly, Atwater Block Variety Packs, Bavik Pils, etc, etc, etc for around $13 a case.
