Okay. This place has me in a love/hate situation. I LOVE the fact that they have so many beers to choose from. I LOVE the beer signs, tap handles and other beer "eye candy" that is EVERYWHERE. (think back to your teenage years and how your bedroom looked).

Now, the food sucks. Honestly. Its horrible, so eat somewhere else and then come here. Or drink here and order the food to sober up. The only good thing is the pretzel. Then we have the actual prices on the beer. The tap prices are fair, but the bottles are STUPID! Why would I pay $20 for a bottle that I can get for $7.99 at any other liquor store in Louisville? (Read Hoptimus by NABC). Oh and lets not forget that this place is cash only. Really? For what reason?

Place looks like it's closed down from the outside. Nice selection of beers. Prices are inflated by about 25%. 1 month old zombie dust for $10. 6 month old Alpha King. I understand why they have old bottles still on the shelf, because everything is overpriced. Service was nonexistent. I get more courtesy from strangers out on the street. Only accepts cash.

This place is a beer lovers dream come true. I know there is a lot of beer in the world now, but to see so many options all in one little dive joint is amazing. Sergio's is a must on all true beer lovers bucket list.

Amazing selection of beers. Service sucks when it gets busy, but otherwise it's a very legit beer destination. Food is pretty great as well. Try the ceviche.

Another stop on our tour of Louisville and another must try. I am sure I will mirror much of what others have said. This place is very easy to walk bye if you blink as you pass. Very unassuming from the front entrance. The initial entrance is a door no bigger then you would see on a small budget apartment. No sign out front to mark this place, almost like they are happy being a little hidden. Beer coolers run along behind the bar as you enter. I didn't count but I bet this place has something like twenty beer coolers. The building is four times deeper then it is wide and the adventure of beer runs the entire length of the building. I have been a lover of craft beer and have been to many establishments that claim a huge selection. Sergio's delivers on this with easily over a thousand beers available and countless ones that I had never seen before. If you are going with a retail perspective, you may find that the prices are a bit high. The idea here is that it is more of a bar focused on great beer and with that in mind the prices are not all that bad. They do offer any of their bottled beers for carry out. It is very cluttered and in need of a clearance event to free up some space. I would love to spend a day just going through all the miscellaneous boxes they have in the back of this place. I would imagine there is nearly a hundred of those. They do have a nice tap list as we sampled rare Belgium's as well as 2014 BCBS. They do offer a small menu as well, but none of us tried the food this night. I will definitely be back and next time we may spend a whole day.

The widest variety of beer I think I've ever seen. Filled to the brim with beer, taps and decorations the likes of which I've never seen before. Had a great time and found my new favorite beer, Delirium Noel.

Difficult to find unless you know it's there already. However, there are quite literally a thousand beers or more available at Sergio's. The un-initiated could easily find themselves overwhelmed. But Sergio is very helpful and very enthusiastic.
