I did not get any draft beers while I was here but I did have a good time shopping.

This store had a pretty laid back vibe though I went in the middle of a Saturday afternoon so that might be different than it is on a weekend night. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

The place has a really nice selection including lots of bombers, singles, and even drafts. I was impressed that they had some rare or tough to find ones as well. I liked that there were lots of beers both on the shelf as well as chilled.

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.

The place is small but there are some good beers inside. The service is BAD and I have gotton the impression on my four trips that the crowd here is a bit snooty and smug. Price here is the biggest obstacle, however they do have some excellant selections albeit a little off step. Its a good place to be able to run in and out on your way out of town, assuming you can get waited on.

I've been shopping at this place for about a year now, and have been in multiple times.

A: The store is always clean, well-lit, and well-stocked. To the best of my knowledge, it always seems to be open on time.

Q: The quality of the selection is very good, especially when one takes into consideration the area in which this store is located. They seem to take great pains in insuring that their offerings are stored properly and of the highest quality.

S: To be honest, the service is variable (as one would expect from about any place). For the most part, the staff are friendly, if not overly attentive. Generally, the individuals who frequent this store know what is available and know what they are looking for, so I suppose that the staff assumes that the customer will do the work. I should point out, though, it is never a good idea to call this place, as none of the staff seem to understand or care about proper phone etiquette.

S: The selection is very good for the Kentuckiana area. The store carries a number of reputable imports, as well as products from local and regional craft breweries. If you look around, it's not too hard to find something outstanding here.

V: It's a little pricier than some, but not as expensive as others. To be honest, I've never really had a complaint with the prices, and have even been able to find things at this store that are much more expensive elsewhere.

Overall, I would recommend this store. The selection is generally near excellent, the facility is nice and well-maintained, and the prices aren't horrible. One can do far worse than spending an afternoon here.

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.
