3.5/5  rDev -21.7%

I stopped in to Discount on Thursday morning, July 13th. From the outside, I was skeptical as to whether this place would live up to the buzz I'd heard about it.

Upon entering the building, I found an aging store in serious need of some updating but beyond that, I was very pleased with the selection.

Pricing seemed to be all over the board with some items being priced below average and others being priced well above what I'd expect.

I was able to come up with about 2 and 1/2 cases of sixers and bombers but when I asked about case pricing, I was informed that case pricing only applied to full cases of the same product. I've never run into this before and I was more than a little disappointed. I dropped over $100 and I can't get a discount but a guy who only buys a case of Oberon is going to get a discount. Seems a little strange and because of it, I'm not going to be as likely to search them out again.

I don't get to Milwaukee that often but in the future, I'll make my way over to Murray's Wine where my business seemed to be so much more appreciated.

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.

A hole-in-the-wall grocery store with a pretty remarkable beer isle. It was a bit hard to navigate, especially with a shopping cart: boxes on the floor with limited space down the middle. Selection was pretty solid with lots of varieties of New Glarus, some BA B.O.R.I.S., Gumballhead, and lots of sours, Evil Twin, and Mikkeller. I was going to grab an Ale Smith IPA, until I noticed it was over 4 months old. Plenty of Speedway Stout though.

Great beer selection and the owner was quite friendly and very helpful. He recommended some local beers that I can't get at home and I was very appreciative, as I might have otherwise missed these beauties.

For anyone visiting Milwaukee I'd highly recommend Discount Liquor.
