Nice place. Pretty small once inside. If you stop by on a weekend night, expect a crowd and not much room to get around. Nice rotating selection on tap. Huge selection of American craft and Belgian. Prices are okay. They are higher than large retailers but not by much. I dont feel I am getting ripped off by paying a dollar or two more to a local business. Just pay attention to what you are getting and know your area. If you want "Brand X" in a 6 pack, it can be had less, but if you just want a bottle, give it a shot.

There is no food here other than some nuts at the bar, so eat before you come. The best time to come is during the day. You're likely to be the only one or one of a couple of people there so its easier to ask questions and look around. Of course, the website says they open at "3ish", but of the two dozen or so times I have been there, only once have they been open at three. And that was because they had opened at 2 that day as I was told. Most times I sit in my car until as late as 3:45 waiting for them to open. This is my only major complaint. Other than that, visit this place and visit often!

This is what a beer store should be. Great staff, great beer, great location. I enjoy that the staff are just as knowledgeable as they are friendly and helpful so I'm almost always sure to get a delicious beer that I may have never known existed. If you love beer and are in Louisville, you want to go here.

This place rocks! killer selection of brews I cannot get in Jersey. The staff was top notch and knowledgeable. I will absolutely visit this place again. I can't stress enough the cool staff when I was there in October 2014. Recommended!

Stopped in while in town. Selection was great, but prices were really high. For example, a bottle that I got in NYC for $6.99 was $8.99 here. Could be distributor mark up, but $2 seems like a lot on a bottle under $10. Prices kept me from buying much.

Nice bottle shop with lots to choose from. Plenty of great American craft and a very nice import section. Cans all seem to be in the cooler. Tap selection was nothing special on my visit. Service was about nonexistent and they were out of carriers. Food is snacks only and I did not try any. I don't think there are any real bargains here but prices seemed about normal for a mostly singles-only shop.

LBS set a new standard in louisville for a bottle shop. They have been creative in event line-ups and tastings, and they have brought awesome brewers into the area.

Cheese and crackers (and maybe nuts?) are the only food go speak of, but it's locally made and also good.

The patio Is a nice place to go enjoy some brews with friends... Includes a fire pit.

It's the only place in town where you'll be able to find many European brews, but they are a bit pricey.

I thought this place was going to be the typical craft beer spot, but man it wasn't what i expected. You want to pop a top the moment you walk in. Staff was friendly and very knowledgeable, patrons were friendly and the beer selection was ridiculous. If you ever make it to KY, I suggest you stop by and have a brew and perhaps walk away with a bag full as well. Nice Place.

Dropped by on a recent vacation - small bottleshop, but quite well heeled. They've got draft brews as well. I had no problem at all with the service, as some have suggested. My girlfriend stopped by for me the last time she was in the area, picked up a nice box of bombers for me. I was pretty jealous when she sent me a photo of the draft she was drinking - Zombie Dust. I still haven't gotten a chance to try that one. Cool little store.
