I was pretty impressed with the selection here. Big selection from New Glarus and Bell's. I was surprised to see selected items from Three Floyds and Stone as well. They've got a limited selection of mix and match singles and a pretty good selection from Central Waters, Tyranea, and Lake Louie. They also had the Brewers Gone Wild and Unplugged series. Not sure how much business they get in a town this size, but if I ever am in the area again, I will be stopping in to stock up.

BTW, this place is a bit hard to find just because there are so many businesses around, it's in a mini mall behind the Subway and Pizza Hut.

Considering its Sauk City, Liquor Baron has a tremendous selection.. Many options from Deschutes, 3 Floyd's, and Dogfish Head.. Surprisingly still had CW BBS and Cherry BBS also.. Very knowledgable and friendly staff.. Definitely a must stop if you are in HWY 12 on your way to the Dells!!

A pre-Dells beer run stop. If i'm cursed to endure such a dismal locale, i'd better come strapped with tasty Wisco beer.

The Baron is easy to miss, hidden in strip mall anonymity. By night, be sure the neons glow bright and draw all ye beer moths to thee flickering flame.

Inside, it was fairly small, but the beer coolers were easily located straight back. There was one rack of dwindling beers such as Chimay, Franziskaner, and one bottle of Alpha Klaus (the sole FFF bottle in the place). Other than that the majority was in the cooler. Mostly WI craft beer to be had, Lake Louie (5), Central Waters (5), Ale Asylum (5), New Glarus + Imp. Saison, Yokel, Bells (5), Stone (3), Boulevard (Smokestack rack by register) and a few other odds and ends. Maybe around 100 or less brands. Fairly clean and bright place, clean wood floors. Cashier guy mentioned that Boulevard Saison was his favorite of the Smokestack series. As others, mentioned, right next door to a Carr Valley cheese shop, don't miss it!

Overall the 3rd best selection in proximity to the Dells, next to Viking Express in Baraboo.

They have Hennepin and Bell's. The prices on the higher ABV brews are reasonable, as some places jack the prices just because of ABV, even if it's easy to get.

The staff is pretty good every time I go in and seems to know quite a bit. They are mostly hopheads, 2 out of the 3 I talked to.

My biggest complaint is the prices on the Central Waters Coffee Stout and Peruvian Morning. The bomber of Coffee Stout and the 12 oz of Peruvian Morning are the same price. And I don't think I'm going to pay $7.99 for a 12 of many beers.

Other than that, I go there when I'm tired of NG Hop Hearty and want some Commodore Perry or Double Bastard, which happens every now and then.
