I went to the original location two or three times. It was just too much out of my way. The new location off of Warner is very close and convenient for me. Build your own 6-pack deal is great but they need to build up the offering. $1.39/bottle -10% on 6 packs. Kegs are the their specialty and they have plenty of them and a good variety. The walk in "beer cave" is chilly, bring a jacket if plan on browsing. It is 3 doors down from 24 hr fitness. I have only met Mr. Keg once, he was very rude and surly. j/k it is very nice to have a good selection of cold bombers so close by (until I can justify a kegerator).

Great group of guys, very knowledgeable and will let you talk their ear off about brew! They do carry allocated stuff like Pliny as well as other RR brews, KRBC, Beachwood, etc. They'll let you take a single out of a sixer as well, if you're just about trying new brews such as myself. I can't speak for the kegs because I never get them but their bottled brew is outta the park. You can even call and they'll give you their newest stuff in over the phone without any attitude like those snooty people at Hi-Time. Check them out!

I was looking to get a Kegerator for the new house, and after a great deal of Internet and telephone research I visited Mr. Keg (sorry, but I refuse to go with the new name, I have known them as Mr. Keg for too long).

Dustin was very helpful, and I ended up going with a top of the line model within the home unit category. We customized it with a two-tap tower and oufitted it with matching tap handles for the two kegs I began with. They did a home delivery and setup, complete with charging my CO2 tank, setting up the new kegs (delivered nice and cold), screwing in my tap handles, and wiping it all down. I was enjoying delicious draft beer served at 37* within minutes of delivery.

I have since had them come out for keg delivery/replacement. It is extremely convenient to be able to simply telephone them with my keg order, pay by credit card, and have them show up to install my fresh keg and carry away the fallen soldier. No complaints whatsover about Mr. Keg!

This is just a first impression, and I admit I had a preconception about this place being dedicated to beer.

Overall, it is nice and clean and the employees were helpful. I mixed and matched a nine beers out of the fridge, which was a cool touch (but had rather limited selection), and it came out to about $12. Not bad at all for nine different beers.

The amount of liquor they sell is comparable to the amount of beer they have, and they sell snacks, milk and other refreshments. Prices were about normal, maybe slightly lower than, say, Bev Mo. So it's a nice place, but is more like a liquor store that sells kegs.

And, they had almost no home brew equip, save one kit and some bottle caps. Overall, it's worth a visit to see if they have what you want, but for a large selection I will be sticking with BevMo unless I need good-priced kegs or want to mix-and-match a six-pack.

Nice to see another BeerFly location within 2 miles of my house. On the southwestern corner of Warner and Springdale by where the old Post Game Pizza used to be.

Pretty small store coming in, nice selection of kegs though I've never bought one in my life, I came here to check out the bottle selection.

They had the usual suspects, CA dominated, Stone, Ballast Point, Anchor, Alaskan, He'Brew, Deschutes were all represented. Some Schneider stuff - Aventinus and the Weizen-Eisbock. Also found a lone bottle of He'Brew Genesis 10:10 which I picked up. 80% refrigerated I'd reckon, clean look to the place.

Service was solid, the cashier didn't bug me while I wandered around which was nice because I was the only one in the store.

All in all the beer selection will not wow anyone, but it is solid, Mr. Kegs has quickly become the best bottle shop on the Westside of Huntington.
