Stopped in on a day visit to Louisville. Liquor Barn is similar to the mega booze stores in Northrn Kentucky...which is good.

The one upside of the Liquor Barn is their massive tap selection and it appears you can order flights of beer and drink them in the store at one of many tables. With the stellar tap line up, this makes Liquor Barn a great beer bar with a warehouse atmosphere.

I picked up a bunch of high alcohol Dogfish Head (World Wide Stout, Olde School, and 120 Minute) that I can't get in Ohio because of the ABV limit. All prices were reasonable and I'd recommed it if you're passing through town.

Good place for both Bourbon and beer, among other alcoholic needful things. Very good broad selection and prices are fairly low across the board. I don't always find rare releases here but the standard offerings are quite good. Some interesting bourbon choices here too that I don't see at some of the mom and pop stores. Love Liquor Barn.

I've visited most, if not all, of the Liquor Barn locations. They run the gamut from well-stocked but a bit grungy to downright opulent. This location hits the top of the scale. The "growler heaven" wall rivals the best area bars for tap selection. The bottled selection is excellent and there is a great deli and gourmet and specialty grocery offering. A very good regional representation and they seem to keep up with timely rotation of seasonals. The store staff is quite helpful. When the person I spoke with could not answer a question, he searched out someone who could and reported back.

The Springhurst store is the largest of its kind in Louisville and probably the state. The growler wall is fantastic and having a brew at the bar discussing the merits of the concoction with the Knowledgeble staff makes the experience all the better. Special tapping nights and food trucks outside only make it better. If you need a hard to find beer in Ky or one of the great Bourbons, then you have found the place

All I can say is ... wow! Upon walking in there is a collection of 20 or so taps that feature everything from bells to FFF to a collection of locals. You can taste a 2 oz sample for .50 to 1.50 depending on the beer or get a 6 oz pour for a couple bucks or just get a growler to go. With California's laws this kind of thing would be impossible. This station coupled with the selection and the fact that you can split 6 packs makes this one of the best big block type beer stores I have ever been too. Although it might be a little large and corporate for some I would consider it a great stop if you are looking for craft brew in louisville.

This store is the reason I started seeking out craft beer. The store is roughly the size of a medium sized supermarket, and had a whole supermarket isle dedicated to a nice selection of craft beer. Each type of liquor has a supermarket sized isle dedicated to it, so the selection for any type of alcohol is definitely better than average. Other than that it has a humidor, frozen party food selection and fireworks. I have not found another store with the selection and variety this store has. Will definitely stop next time I am in Kentucky.
