This was my first visit to Discount and I will definitely be back! The selection of both domestic and imported beers is good, but the import selection is astounding. I was there for about an hour just trying to decide what to get and I had brought a list with me. The gentleman working the beer section was very friendly, helpful and extremely informative. The singles selection was small but had some nice choices. The drive is well worth it to get some hard to find beers new and old. I would highly recommend Discount to anyone that is in the area.

Tons of beer here, a bit disorganized but everything is clearly marked with a price. Staff is friendly and attentive. Nice selection of local and regional beer, surprised to see so much Toppling Goliath stuff sitting around.

Drove all the way from Chicago to visit this place, so glad I did. Looks like your normal run of the mill liquor store but with an aisle different. A ton of beer that I can't get in Chicago. Grabbed some Psuedo Sue (first time trying, loved it), plus Alesmith and New Glarus and many more. Including a lot of European breweries that I've never heard of. Spent a couple hundred and I look forward to drinking the many different bevarages

This place pretty much looks from the outside what you would expect from a place called discount liquor. Macro neons and signs on the outside with mountains of boxes lining the windows. But I wandered in anyway to be surprised by a palette of fresh ballast point and impressive glassware collection after walking in.

Impressive aisle of beer with one of the most impressive import selections I've seen. The Mikkeller variety alone made it a quality import area. Their domestic options were equally impressive with plenty of NG, Toppling Goliath (had Golden Nugget, Dorothy's, and Smoove Operator on shelf), Black Husky, Upland, many smaller locals, and countless others. Be sure you search around as well, random shelves and displays hidden about with quality beer on them.

Wasn't asked if I needed help but wasn't really looking for any so kind of a wash in this category.

I was in Milwaukee for the day and this was far and away the best place to buy beer to bring back with me. Take your time and really search around and you will be sure to find a unique bottle to unearth and take home.

Excellent import selection. Lots of cool stuff from lesser-seen breweries like To Ol, Haandbryggeriet, Mikkeller, Blaugies, De Struise. That doesn't mean they skimp on American craft, either, as they stock the latest and greatest from both around the nation and from WI. Friendly staff who are always willing to help. It looks a bit dingy, but that just means the money goes towards getting the good stuff. Better than their Waukesha location.
