From the outside this looks like your typical large liquor store. From the inside this looks like your typical large liquor store. So you walk back to the part of the store where you expect to see 5000 cases of BMC and a sixer two of Spotted Cow and Sam Adams and whatnot, when awww SNAP dogg! A huge beer section jumps out at you. You name it, they’ve got it. Probably 20 New Glarus beers, some of them a couple years removed from their releases. Some other good vintage beers, along with just about everything that’s seen distribution in Milwaukee recently. Prices are very reasonable. No frills really, and the decor is certainly not impressive, but it’s one hell of a store which can be your one-stop shop for loading up on Wisconsin beer.

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.

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.
