The Shopper's Village Liquors (Broadway location) is not a particularly good place to go beer shopping in Lexington.

The stand-alone building located at the intersection of South Broadway Street and Circle 4 Road takes the appearance of any random corner liquor store. Neglected and beaten, the store takes on the attitude of the surrounding neighborhood. But there is enough parking and if it is on your way, a quick stop may be in order if you don't make it to other stores that have a supperior beer list.

The beer selection is a little better than the standard Beer Cave that is found at most gas stations. Offerings of Bells, Dogfish, Kentucky Brewing, Goose Island, and Stone can be found however you won't find the varieties from these breweries that are carried elsewhere.

You can also find the standard bourbons, liquors, wines, coctail mixes, and tobacco products but you'll be hard pressed finding something truely special here.

The store obviously needs a bath as it is quite poorly kept. Lighting is pretty standard and the service was severly lacking. I do not get a good vibe while visiting.

Unfortunately, this is the only real store to find a decent assortment of beers in the extended area. The poor quality of this store is not indicative of the other Shopper's Village Liquor store that is located near the UK campus and is about four miles away.

Swung by this place last X-mas (2007)...it finally got added!

Anway, from what I can remember about the place, it's one of the better stops for beer along I-64 if you're going from WV to St. Louis...or in my case from WV to Nashville, TN.

The selection had a decent amount of Stone (Arrogant Bastard, Ruination, Dbl. Bastard), as well as a wide variety of Goose Islands, some german and belgian imports, an a few locals (Bluegrass Brewing Co., I think). The price was fairly inexpensive, and the service was amicable. The place could stand to be a bit cleaner, but hey, what liquor store couldn't?
