Small dumpy looking store which I would swear would be a place only for cheap malt liquors in regards to beer. Good thing this beerfly is here!

I walk in and am in amazement instantly. Lots of cool brewery specific glasses sit to the right in a smaller room. There really is only one aisle of beer but what an isle it is! Lots of German beers (esp Mahr's) that I've been longing for and finally get to try. Great selection of Belgian and English beers. I wondered the aisle about 4 times through in amazement. Tons of American micros which I have never seen in Michigan as well. Prices were ridiculously cheap compared to Michigan prices. I was astounded by how cheap some of those beers were compared to what they fetch in GR. Mostly Wisconsin micros and macros in the coolers in the back. Sucks that they couldn't be broken up but oh well. Service was kind of weak. No real help even though I looked like a deer in the headlights with the amazing selection. I also seemed to be putting off the cashier by making her work even though I was spending around $150. But the others seemed friendly enough. Best selection I have ever seen in a store and cheapest prices. What a combo!

Drove all the way from Chicago to visit this place, so glad I did. Looks like your normal run of the mill liquor store but with an aisle different. A ton of beer that I can't get in Chicago. Grabbed some Psuedo Sue (first time trying, loved it), plus Alesmith and New Glarus and many more. Including a lot of European breweries that I've never heard of. Spent a couple hundred and I look forward to drinking the many different bevarages

This place pretty much looks from the outside what you would expect from a place called discount liquor. Macro neons and signs on the outside with mountains of boxes lining the windows. But I wandered in anyway to be surprised by a palette of fresh ballast point and impressive glassware collection after walking in.

Impressive aisle of beer with one of the most impressive import selections I've seen. The Mikkeller variety alone made it a quality import area. Their domestic options were equally impressive with plenty of NG, Toppling Goliath (had Golden Nugget, Dorothy's, and Smoove Operator on shelf), Black Husky, Upland, many smaller locals, and countless others. Be sure you search around as well, random shelves and displays hidden about with quality beer on them.

Wasn't asked if I needed help but wasn't really looking for any so kind of a wash in this category.

I was in Milwaukee for the day and this was far and away the best place to buy beer to bring back with me. Take your time and really search around and you will be sure to find a unique bottle to unearth and take home.

I have not found a store in WI that has a better selection of beer. Always very helpful and the pricing always seems to be in line with the competition or cheaper.

Excellent import selection. Lots of cool stuff from lesser-seen breweries like To Ol, Haandbryggeriet, Mikkeller, Blaugies, De Struise. That doesn't mean they skimp on American craft, either, as they stock the latest and greatest from both around the nation and from WI. Friendly staff who are always willing to help. It looks a bit dingy, but that just means the money goes towards getting the good stuff. Better than their Waukesha location.

They are hard to beat in terms of selection and price and the staff is generally very friendly. The Milwaukee location is organized pretty well and despite the run down exterior and interior they are top notch. It should be noted that the Milwaukee location is light years better than their Waukesha location.
