I had some free time today, so I decided to take a trip downtown to see what this place was like. It just opened a couple of weeks ago, so it felt kinda disorganized but in a "charming" way.

The space is a little cramped, which could be a problem if the place was any busier (there were about 7 people in there at the time).

The staff was friendly. The guy I talked to was casual and more like a friendly stranger than a salesman.

I went in this place hoping to find a pint glass (which is oddly one of the only types of glass I don't have...it's also odd that I haven't really seen many in other liquor stores around here). To me delight, they had some nice brewery specific pints from Dogfish head, Founders, and several others along with other specialty glasses that I haven't seen anywhere else in the area.

The beer is displayed across a large wall and there's a refrigerated section towards the back of the store. The selection isn't huge but it's very nice. They seemed to have everything that's generally available in the area, but this is the first place I've seen Stone's 09 Double Bastard.

The guy I was talking to said they've been getting more and more beer as if he had to apologize for not having something... not necessary.

They also had a small but impressive selection of beers on tap.

The prices were generally what's expected.

This is probably going to become my number 2 go-to place, after Keg Liquors in Indiana, particularly if I don't feel like making the trip across the border. (1,511 characters)

This place has whatever is in town at the moment, but also an excellent foreign selection, especially sours. Always good recommendations and while a limited amount of taps, always good stuff. They also own Holy Grale and I presume whenever the big dogs come around(Cantillon, Framboos, etc.) they throw a lot to the Grale (on premise consumption and higher price), all in all a good problem to have. This should be at the top of everyone's list when visiting Louisville. (470 characters)

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. (307 characters)

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! (238 characters)

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. (255 characters)

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. (401 characters)
