Unmatched selection served up by someone who knows what he’s talking about (and who is happy to educate you when you don’t). Staff is attentive, but limited, so speed of service can be spotty during busy times. Food menu is hit and miss in my opinion, but is a huge plus when you feel like you might need something to soak up one or two of the 1,000+ beers that are available. Location and ambiance (both marked improvements over the former location) further enhance the experience. A visit to Sergio’s is a must for anyone who likes beer of any style.
After a bit of a frustrating search the first time, the reward was instant when I cracked open the door and saw a montage of glasses, bottles and taps that represent some of the best beers in the world! I think Sergio gets a kick out of those first impressions--wide eyed, salivating beer lovers that share his same passion. The tap list and bottle selection is the best I’ve come across in the Midwest, hands down. Food menu is extensive and may explain the lacking preparation, execution and presentation but overall good quality ingredients are apparent. Non-pretentious, beer focused, quirky, unique experience. I’ll be back!
I like beer above wine or liquor, so I like the place a lot. It is pretty much no frills and all about the beer. I suppose he spends total budget on new beers to try. For your first time, go when it is not busy otherwise Sergio will be too busy to talk beer with you, since he is pretty much server and cook as well as beer expert. That will make or break your experience.
