Im a Louisville boy. Born and raised. I, like many other Kentuckians have always been of the opinion that the only reason to go to Indiana was for fireworks. That was before I found the Keg. Now there are two good reasons!

One of the best stores I have ever found for anything I have ever been interested in is the Keg. Not only are they stocked with more amazing craft and import brews than you can drink in a year (try it, I dare you), but the special releases they get in weekly are simply amazing. You BAs know how it is. There is a limited release and you go from store to store trying to find it. No store around Louisville or southern Indiana gets a consistent order of THE limited release of the week. Or month. Or year. EXCEPT the Keg. It never fails. Every week there is something Todd gets in that I am amazed by, be it a craft release from California or a Loon from Belgium. If youre looking for it, odds are he has it or is getting it. Most owners are content with just getting in whatever the vendors tell them is available, but Todd is a BA. He is into craft and you can tell. He makes sure that his store gets the releases you wont find at any other store. Every other store around Keg, be it to the east or west, can only try to be like Keg, but they never will be. Not to mention the fact that his staff is helpful, nice and knows what they are talking about. They know the product on the shelves, and most of them they have tried.

I honestly do not want to think about the countless limited releases I would have missed out on had it not been for the Keg being there. You owe it to yourself to stop by the store even if youre just passing through. We all know there are those shops that we frequent whenever we are visiting from another city. Go to the Keg once and this will be your stop for Louisville. I promise.

I travel quite a bit and whenever I am in Louisville, or Southern Indiana, I always stop by the keg to stock up. Todd is the definition of beer advocate and will go out of his way to show you beer you may enjoy or help you in anyway he can.

It may not be the cheapest prices you can find beer, but the extra $0.50-$1.00 you pay here is absolutely worth it.

Probably the best place to grab a few beers to take home in Southern Indiana. Definitely worth the drive for me.

The atmosphere is of a standard liquor store. A few aisles of liquor and wine (a small section of cider and mead too), with two long aisles of beer. One being domestic and the other side being imports. Mostly bombers and 750s, but some four packs as well as variety packs and 12 packs. A glassware section with maybe 15-20 different very reasonably priced glasses. A line of cooler doors 8-10 doors long of cold four packs, six packs, bombers, 750mls and they encourage you to mix and match a six pack to take home.

Employees there are friendly and knowledgeable. They always approach you and ask if you need help or a suggestion, or tell you what they have in that is new. Most are enthusiastic to talk about beer, and are more than willing to help you take beer to your car. I also believe they hold tastings once a week but unfortunately I haven't ever been able to make it out to one. They also update their product list atleast weekly with new beers on their website, and keep good track of what is in stock and not. As well as let you know if something is in limited supply.

Their selection is stellar. Tons of American craft and micro, as well as a whole aisle jam packed with imports. They have plenty of beers you can't find anywhere else in the area, as well as plenty of harder to find breweries and overlooked styles of beer. It seems like they pride themselves in their home state selection of beer, and have plenty of Indiana breweries to pick from. And like I said, if you don't feel the need to pick up an entire four pack or six pack of beer they are more than happy to sell you one bottle or can. This is the first place I could ever find the harder to find imports and the place I'd go to get my Three Floyds before Kentucky saw distribution. A lot of firsts were had for me at this store, and it's a place I enjoy giving my business to even if it's a good thirty minute drive for me. Also, it seems as though their turnover on stock is a bit better than most other places for beers that seem to sit at other places and get stale (ahem, Dreadnaught). Prices are pretty reasonable too.

Overall, a fantastic little liquor store with a wonderful selection and staff. This is the place to go when visiting Louisville to get your harder to find imports and regional craft and American micros. I highly suggest this place, and have turned on a few friends to their store. It seems like the only thing they are missing is a growler station but as it stands right now, growler fills are not legal in Indiana at liquor stores. However, I have been told that once they are (which could be soon) they will be offered at The Keg. This is the place to go when in Louisville or southern Indiana for beer to go.

Shame on me for not reviewing Keg Liquors yet. I live about 25 miles from here on the far side of Louisville, so I don't get to visit as often as I would like. But if I am over in Southern Indiana for any reason, I make it a point to stop by.

Located just a short drive off of I-65, it's an easy find. It looks unassuming from the street. Look for the vintage looking Keg Liquors sign. Inside you'll find a very spacious, nicely layed-out, and well-stocked store. And you'll find your typical selection of macro brews, (bud, miller, coors), as well as a nice selection of wine and spirits, (whiskey, rum, vodka, etc.). But, you're not here for the typical liquor store stuff, are you?

Their selection of craft and import brews is simply amazing for a smaller store like this! Two rows and several coolers stocked with a massive selection of imports and microbrews. Lots of rarities that you probably aren't going to find anywhere else near here. Understand that there is a local chain of mega-liquor stores here in Louisville (and throughout the state of Kentucky) called Liquor Barn, which has a huge selection of beers. Keg Liquors has tons of beers that even Liquor Barn doesn't have!

Keg Liquors is absolutely world class! The staff are extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and talkative. This is especially true for the owner, Todd. The man knows a hell of a lot about beer!

If you are visiting Louisville or Southern Indiana, do yourself a favor and pay a visit. They do frequent beer tastings, and you simply must come out to their annual "Fest of Ale" beer festival!
