There has always been two Cork 'N Bottle stores in Northern Kentucky, but the one in Ft. Mitchell had been small and lacking in selection...until now. This Cork 'N Bottle is new, and across the street from the old one. The beer selection at this new store is at par with the other one up in Covington. All the beer here is kept in the cooler, with outside opening doors for the singles and 6-packs. They have a nice selection of imports, mostly German with a good amount of Belgian and English beers to go with it. There are singles of the larger bottles available (sizes .5L and up). The micro section is decent, with most offerings from such breweries as Stone, Dogfish Head, Rogue, Anderson Valley, Avery, and so on. Bombers and 750mL bottles of many craft brews are available as well, and the prices are decent. All the beer appears to be very fresh and the stock is rotated nicely. This isn't a bad stop right off of I-75, but Party Town and Party Source, with their homebrew supplies, glassware, and larger selection may be more favorable.

vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4

A - 3.5 This store isn't usually very busy but then again, I often stop by on my lunch hour as it is close to work. Usually I'm greeted by the staff but not every time.

Q - 4.5 The quality of products are high. The store is clean and it's usually a pretty good experience.

Ser - 4 They're not always the most attentive or friendly, depending on who is working, but usually it is OK and I'm asked if I need any help. Recommendations come occasionally.

Sel - 4 Overall the CnB has a pretty decent selection. It is just a bit smaller than some of its competitors in town (Party Source, Party Town), and thus is limited. It definitely has good offerings, though, and surely everyone would be able to find something to their liking. There are a fair amount of American craft brews but less imports. They do have 4-5 taps at their growler station.

F - N/A (They have a small selection of food but I haven't purchased any before.)

V - $$ Their prices are reasonalbe. Some things come in under the bigger competitors in town but some things are above. On average, it is competitive.

Very nice, large and all encompassing store in a strip mall. Plenty of parking in front and easy to get in and out of.
All the beer is kept in fridges. There are probably close to 10-12 fridges full of craft/import beer. Not to mention the walk in beer cave with overstock in it. Very good selection to choose from. Some things tend to hang out a bit longer here due to the traffic that they get here. Most are looking for liquor and party favors, not craft beer. Never interacted with the staff there, but they were around if you had any questions or needed any help. Extensive liquor department with everything you could ever want in all shapes and sizes, quite impressive. Pricing was in line with what you'd expect. If you're in the area it's worth a stop. Nothing I'm going to drive out of my way to get to.

Much like my review of the Belleview Cork n Bottle, but larger! They had a good selection of beers to choose from with a super courteous and friendly staff. Very clean throughout the entire store - even their bathroom!

Anyhow, the majority of American beers were:
* Stone
* Schlafly
* Avery
* Dogfish Head
* Arcadia
* Shiner
* Bell's
* Great Lakes
* Rogue
* Brooklyn

Interestingly enough, they had the following in stock at good competitive prices: Bell's Batch 8,000, a few Vintage 2007 DFH World Wide Stout, a nice amount of DFH 120 Min IPA, Rogue's 10,000 Brews among other older, "non-deliberate" vintage beers (or, plainly put - old stock). I preferred this location over the Belleview location because they had a larger selection, a bigger beer cave and helpful, but not overwhelmingly helpful (borderline annoying?) staff. Check it out!
