Highly impressed by the selection down at the Party Store, the front of the building in a shopping outlet in Florence, KY does nothing to warn you about the incredible selection of wine, beer, cigars, obscure hot sauces, party supplies that this store has to offer definitely a one stop shopping experience. Beer coolers with singles that need to be kept cold, kegs galore, sixers and 12 packs in the walk in cooler, grocery store like aisles of beer. I found the house beer guy, who shares the namesake of one of my first cousins...Jeff Metz. He gave me awesome beer advice, and access to some of his cellared jewels. I left with a Goose Island Bourbon County Stout, a vertical of Avery the Beast, the Beer Geek Brunch Weasel, and my first go around Pretty Things, Prairie wild ales, Cincy based Rivertown sour ales, a couple growlers special one offs from Dark Horse and Against the Grain. Awesome beer experience!!! Great prices stop in if your into all things to induce partying.

I go here every week. They have a great mix and match section, great homebrew supplies aisle, the 18 taps growler fill station selection changes almost every week, weekly beer tastings for $2, they have lots of glassware, and every employee I've talked to has been very friendly and informative.
My only gripes are that when compared to the other places I go, everything is a little bit pricier at Party Town, and they skip some major beer releases like Enjoy By.

This place is huge and impressive. Aisles upon aisles of all types of booze and wine. Great whiskey selection, but of course, this is in Kentucky.
Beer section is impressive. About 150 different bomber/750's to choose from. Cold beer walk-in with just about everything they offer. Cold kegs of the BMC's and 6th barrels of some of the craft selection. Singles available in everything they offer. They are cold, but don't mind if you grab one out of a sixer if you want warm. Great international and domestic craft selection. Also, good gift boxes of things like Duvel and Chimay among others.
Service isn't great because of the store's size, but if you go find someone they are willing to do what they can. Also a good selection of home brew supplies.
Overall, I spent about 40 minutes in here, and probably could have spent a few days.
**Side note, I saw the growler fill station. 18 taps that are clearly marked with prices. Options of 1 liter, 64 oz, and gallons. I did not use the station, so that's all I'll say.

The best feature of this place is the growler station, where you can sample up to 18 beers. They have events every Friday to sample new brews.
The part of the store I take the most advantage of, however, is in making my own six-packs. This way I can maximize the amount of beers I get to sample - and the selection is very good, both with craft beers from the States and with imported beers.
One of the employees spent an hour talking about homebrew with me, as well, and I was impressed by his passion and knowledge with the subject. He had book recommendations, kit recommendations, and the experience of trial and error. I will definitely be doing this soon, and want to thank Tony for the time he took with me.

The Growler Station is unbelievable- 18 freaking taps. As a result, of course, there's plenty of variety. Their selection of singles and sixers compares favorably with Party Source (about 20 minutes to the north of Party Town), but the display seems to be more cramped.
I went in for the first time earlier this week, and after wandering around for only a minute or so, was helped by a member of the friendly knowledgeable staff. He made it clear that, if I wanted to, I could sample anything and everything they had on tap so that I didn't go home with a growler I didn't want. He also informed me of their weekly beer tastings held on Friday Evenings. Admission is two dollars (!) to taste between seven and fifteen beers(!!), and that often people will bring in their homebrews to share and taste(!!!).
I haven't been here often enough to give it a more objective look than that. However, if the service I got is representative of what others can expect, then this place is very VERY awesome!

the growler station here is amazing!!! the store is a little too large for what i shop there for....beer. since it's so large i can sometimes be difficult to find somebody with questions but when i do they stay with me as long as i need. that is why i gave them a higher score on service.
what i really love about this place, aside from the amazing growler station, is that i almost always find a rare seasonal in stock that is out of stock everywhere else.
i really should go there more often than i do now.
