5 minutes from the airport. Nice selection of singles and very helpful. I managed to pick up over a case of beer I haven’t had and with 4,400 ratings, that’s getting hard to do! See joebrew for details as he says it all regarding the selection! Free beer tastings every Saturday from 1-6 to boot...
Small little shop with 4 taps and a ton of singles. Picked up a bunch of new WI rates. Not as big of New Glarus selection I was hoping for. Stopping hear and Discount Liquor would cover everything you would want from Milwaukee. Service was fine while I was there, but I stopped in a 8:50 the night before after driving 20 minutes only to find out they were closed when are supposed to be open till 9. Slow night I guess.

I was in town for a couple days when I visited Three Cellars and was hoping to pick up some local beers. This was definitely the right place to go. Impressive single bottles selection. Lots of Wisconsin beers and a bunch of other midwest beers in the singles section. I wish I had been in town longer so I could have made a bigger dent in trying local beers. The one downside I would note is that the prices seemed pretty high for singles, but I was more the willing to pay for the ability to try some many different local beers.
Stopped by here on an early afternoon. Nice, new, clean store that is well organized. Service was alright, the shop owner tried hard but came off a bit pompous. He also went on some rant about CBS that left me un-impressed. Selection is alright, an area of local stuff plus other micros and a few beers on tap. Prices seemed very high on most stuff. Not a place I’d go out of my way for, although they seem to be the only place around that lets you break up 6 packs and buy singles.
I’ve lived less than a mile from this store since it opened and I’ve never stopped in, thinking it was just another liquor store. After reading everyone’s comments on here I decided to check it out... what took me so long? This is a great store. The selection of singles is very impressive. The owner states they are at 500 on their way to 800! They carry many Wisconsin beers I had never heard of or seen until ratebeer.com (like Lake Louie) and a good selection of other beers from around the country and globe. The owners are very friendly and they have many free tasting opportunities - every Saturday and a Brewery event each month. I’ve been to a few tastings and as a newbie, that’s a great opportunity for me to try a lot of different beers... and of course buy a lot of different beers. They recently got in a shipment of glassware (Stella Artois/Duvel/Delirium/etc) , so that’s a bonus too. I recommend this place highly if in the area.
This place is decent. The prices aren’t ridiculous, and they offer single bottles. The service is great. I found Discount Liquors to have a much better selection, albeit, they don’t offer singles there. Being from Georgia, I found a lot here that I was interested in, but there was a lot that I could do without. I think they cater to the beer geek here, as opposed to Discount, where they seem like they don’t give a fuck. Decent place, but I don’t think I’ll be going back after the first visit.
Very nice, very relaxing environment. Great that you can enjoy a tap or bottle while you are there in the lounge area. The selection is of good quality but nothing that I found to be particularly special though. If I were visiting, this is a nice stop if you are nearby, but not go out of your way .
Well I was looking for one good bottle shop to stop at while in Wisconsin, so I decided to stop here. A nice place, good ambiance and helpful employees. I was impressed by the bar-like feel to it, but honestly I was a little disappointed by the selection. They had an entire wall of singles with some pretty good stuff, but they only had 4 varieties of New Glarus and a lot of the more common craft beers/imports rather than a huge WI area. Also, this place is way overpriced compared to many other liquor stores in Wisconsin. Still worth a visit though.
I was impressed with this shop mainly because of the long wall of single selections. True, they were mainly regional and U.S. craft beers, but that worked for me. There’s a smattering of imports, but none too many yet. However, that will all change. I had a lengthy chat with Chuck, the beer half of the operations. They’ll be celebrating their first anniversary this coming weekend. He’s building things slowly and has plans of expanding the selection as time goes on. This means that this will become a regular stop of mine whenever I’m in the Milwaukee area.
I stopped by Three Cellars on the way home from Chicago. The layout was bright, clean, and well-organized (as mentioned), and it looked like the impressive array of beers was all available in single form. The emphasis was on US micros, and I was able to pick out a bunch that I hadn’t tried. The service was excellent, and I was informed of upcoming events. I will drop by whenever I’m in the area.
