Three Cellars is great for a lot of reasons, but I especially love it for its unmatched selection of singles. The selection of single domestic craft beers is formidable, and it may take you some time to decide on what to get. The place is sort of small, and more than half of it is devoted to wine and liquor, so the selection in general isn't that huge - their import selection in particular is a bit thin - but because of their awesome variety of singles, this is a great place to go to try new beers.

Speaking of which, they have free beer tastings on occasion, and I have always found the staff to be friendly, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. This is an all-around great place to shop for beer and I recommend it highly. (726 characters)

Fresh off the plane from Boston, I stopped into Three Cellars to get some local craft. NAILED IT. this place not only had what i was looking for, they also have it on tap! I owe thanks to these gentlemen for not only answering all my questions and offering wonderful suggestions, but also keeping up with my (typically boring to most) beer nonsense. Thank you Three Cellars! (377 characters)

Decent selection with prices that were a little high: ~$14 for a 4-pack of Ten FIDY. Place was nice and definitely clean. (121 characters)

I used to be a regular at Three Cellars when I lived in Wisconsin and can't say enough wonderful things about Shawn and the rest of the crew at Three Cellars with a huge selection or craft beer and wines, to choose from,happy hour prices, and special events that go all out and warm and fun relaxed atmosphere they make you feel right at home from the moment you walk in the door! Be sure drive that extra minute or two out to franklin to have a great pint with some great people (484 characters)

Dropped in on a Tuesday afternoon after flying all day. 10 beers on tap. Solid variety with 4 of the beers coming from WI. The owner and Tim were very helpful guiding me on the WI brew scene. They even poured me a few free tasters from their personal stash. The best elements of this place were the knowledgeable friendly staff and the WI bottle selection. The bottles were well organized and fairly priced. They had many WI bottles that are rated some of the top in the Great Lakes region , including many New Glarus tarts . They also have a solid out of state bottle offering. (578 characters)

Visited this place based on BA reviews as the first stop on this year's beer trip to Wisconsin. It's not set up like a bar/restaurant, but it has some tables and a small bar in the back.

The owner was personable, knowledgeable, and helpful. He gave us a detailed description of the Wisconsin bottles on the shelf, poured us some beers from a smaller-than-preferred tap list, and gave us tips on which other breweries we needed to visit.

Half the store is dedicated to wine, but we aren't wine drinkers, so I can't help with that.

We will be back for insight and some local bottled goodness on future vacations to the Milwaukee area. (635 characters)

Stopped by as we were passing through. Showed up before open hours, and the owner opened the store for us. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Will definitely recommend, and stop in again.

The selection was pretty good. Large selection of Wisconsin and Midwest breweries, as well as other top notch breweries from across the country. Looked like an extensive wine selection as well. (380 characters)

Went to Three Cellars for the first time on a rainy, cold day last week.

Atmosphere- incredibly welcoming. I had just gone to Discount Liquor the day before, and the difference is night & day. I felt like I was stepping into a friend's well-appointed basement beer room. Baskets are there for your use, and most of the new beers greet you on a table when you enter.

Quality- The shop itself is well cared for, so you know that the beers/wines are, too. No coolers, but I'm not fanatical about "refrigerating" my bottles. I have the feeling that these bottles move fast enough to stay fresh.

Service- I was greeted right away by the owner. He was behind the bar, and was more than happy to answer any questions. I picked up a few bottles and made my way to the bar. You can either open bottles there or order from the taps. I chose a flight of 4 beers for $8 or 10, all good beers including a rare Toppling Goliath that I've been dying to try. Another beer geek sat next to me and all three of us chatted for about 1/2 an hour as we drank our beers. It was really an enjoyable experience.

Selection- I felt like the shop was well curated, but I didn't find anything that wasn't available at several other shops I go to regularly (besides the TG on tap). I feel like there are a few shops around town that have wider selection, but with less focus on quality (a la Discount & Ray's, where they can afford to buy copious amounts of imported craft beer that never sells). Three Cellars made the choice to focus on American craft beer, and I applaud them for this- plenty of other places have dusty, over-priced bottles of Mikkeller and EvilTwin.

Food- none- but there were some snacks at the bar.

Value- Solid. Nothing was over or under priced. Fair.

I will definitely be going back every time I make the trip to the south side of town. (1,842 characters)
