I love Discount Liquor. It's a must stop when I'm in Milwaukee, and if I'm passing through on my way to northern Wisconsin, it's usually the first stop I make when I leave the airport. They have a great selection and a staff that's always willing to help you find something.

This place is the reason why I have a separate bank account from my wife. If she knew how much trips back home cost us because of this store...i don't think we would ever visit my parents again. Every time i come in, they have new beer and they store staff is very helpful. Although they have 1 bottle limits to many of the "rare" beers, I like it because I don't think I would even get 1 if it wasn't for that practice.

On of my go to bottle shops when I'm looking for something. They have a great selection and get new stuff in very frequently. If you can't find it on the shelf or looking for something in particular the staff is very helpful in finding it or ordering it for you. Definitely recommend this place if you are in the area and looking for top notch craft beers.

Fantastic selection, the best in Milwaukee. The name and building look and sound cheap and the appearance inside looks cheap as well but once you set your eyes on the beer aisle you see why the trip was worth it. Perhaps too many filler beers from Europe as this constitutes well over half of the section, but there are still many gem offerings from the midwest and beyond. The midwest offerings include: Founders, Bell's, Three Floyd's, Goose Island, Dark Horse, Great Lakes, Jolly Pumpkin and New Glarus, to name a few. The selection from outside the midewest is quite nice as well. Including: The Bruery, Sierra Nevada, Oskar Blues, North Coast, Rogue, Moylan's, Green Flash and Mikkeller. Discount Liquor is also a good spot to catch some of the limited releases from some Midwest Breweries including: Founders KBS, Bell's Hopslam, Goose Island Big John and Night Stalker, Dark Horse Plead the 5th, Great Lakes Blackout Stout and so on.

Overall the selection is very good, the staff is knowledgeable and friendly and the prices are reasonable. So despite the name and the appearance, it is well worth a visit for the selection

This is one of my favorite places to go for beer. They have a ridiculous selections with a very knowledgeable staff, who are always willing to provide you with recommendations and feedback. A great place for anybody looking for particularly rare or hard-to-find beers.

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, or inside for that matter. It looks like your standard liquor store and a little run down from outside and in. It has all your standard fare of spirits, wine, mixers, and beer. However, the beer aisle was amazing. It had an enormous selection of bombers, 750's, and singles. Most impressive was the variety of high end belgians- quads, sours, lambics, etc. It also had quite the variety of Mikeller, Evil Twin, and Wisconsin locals.
I didn't have much interaction with service but someone did come up to me within 5 minutes and asked if I needed help finding anything. That's a plus.
Prices were fair.
This is a great stop in Milwaukee and you'll be able to find something you're looking for.

This is clearly the spot to be if shopping in the Milwaukee area. Place itself is nothing special, perhaps even dumpy but remember its a liquor store not a beauty parlor. Massively long row for their beer selection which pulls in from every corner of the world.

I saw the little off beat Mikkellers that aren't everywhere, quite a few from Evil Twin, once found a 2005 Struise Pannepot Grande Reserva, Fantome Ghosts are sometimes on the shelf, decent number of Bruery stuff for the Midwest.

Like many others, the singles dominate the selection and can get to a overwhelming point at times. The people are very helpful when you need it and don't crowd you when you don't need it.
