Very clean and well organized liquor store. Ever expanding selection of singles, wine selection is impressive as well. The one knock I would give it is that there are not very many Belgian single offerings although this will be changing in the future I am told. The free tastings usually contain one or two gems.

The service here is Fantastic. I am only an occasional buyer. I stop in maybe once every two weeks. The owners always greet us (my wife and son join me). They have helped us both in choosing beers that suit our palets. They have even tried to stock beers I was interested in trying.
I am always impressed with the single bottle selection of both Micro’s and non-US beers. They also have an impressive wine and sprit selection.
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 really like the single serve -build your own 6 pack- I just wen there about a week ago and made myself a twelve pack. They also had a yuengling tasting when I was there. I wish they would sell that stuff here.. They were very helpful and friendly. The selection of singles was all along the back wall. With imports on one half, domestics on the other, and WI brews across the top. It’s not the hugest selection, but with my beginning stance in beer, it’s more than I have had the opportunity to try. Plus they have some good belgian stock. One that even brewblackhole hadn’t tried yet, which I was amazed at.
With the brewery nights, the beer and wine tasting on sat’s, and the beer and wine clubs, they look to be catering to a customer oriented line of marketing, which should result in a finer selection as time progresses.
I stopped by this liquor store in June or July 2006, but found it very unremarkable and unworthy of adding to this site. However, things have changed considerably since then.
I visited today, and of 9 cooler doors, 6 were either crafts or imports. This store also has an aisle of 12 oz single serves. They do not appear to have the assortment just right yet, in that they have some rather common items in that aisle. However, through their website and staff, they seem interested in creating a customer-service oriented store stocking what people demand. So, I’m guessing they’ll stock whatever custoers suggest.
I spoke to the counter staff, and they seemed both knowledgeable and curious as to what I would like to see. A good experience. This is in my neighborhood, and I will be back.
