I drove to Louisville on Saturday for this place to pick up a four pack of the double crooked tree IPA from dark horse and a couple of other beers that I can not get in Ohio.

Although a 3 1/2 hour drive, it was worth it to me to get some rare seasonal greats.

Todd, was helpful and held back one of last 4-packs of the crooked tree for me. There selection was not extensive but they made up for it by representing the styles of beer with the best.

The store is small and shelf space is limited. The space they do have is filled with high quality and at a good price.

Thank you Todd for doing a great job fielding my questions prior to coming down and keeping your list updated online.

This is a fairly large store selling beer, wine, and liquor with a very large selection of beers available for sale. When I visited on a Friday afternoon, it was not too busy though there was a steady flow of customers but almost all of the customers were well known to the employees and beer geeks (or at least enthusiasts). There is a large/long aisle of shelving with beers on both sides, seemingly organized by brewery (and geography) along with the entire back wall of cooler cases of beer as well.

About half of the beer was available cold while the remainder was available on the shelves but seeing as there were very few windows (only in the door). Any beer that was not enclosed in a box was available for purchase in singles and once you got a 6-pack worth there was a discount to bring the price back to approximately what it would have cost to buy the 6-pack. As a first time beer shopper in IN, I was impressed with the large selection of in-state breweries but there was also a pretty good selection of other regional breweries.

The service was great - I first encountered the manager/owner who was really helpful and pointed out the spots in the store that I would want to check out for the more sought after beers and pointed out many new breweries (to me) that I might want to give a shake to... Very friendly, very helpful, and an all around nice guy.

Definitely a shop that I would like to stop by the next time I'm in the greater Louisville area.

Im a Louisville boy. Born and raised. I, like many other Kentuckians have always been of the opinion that the only reason to go to Indiana was for fireworks. That was before I found the Keg. Now there are two good reasons!

One of the best stores I have ever found for anything I have ever been interested in is the Keg. Not only are they stocked with more amazing craft and import brews than you can drink in a year (try it, I dare you), but the special releases they get in weekly are simply amazing. You BAs know how it is. There is a limited release and you go from store to store trying to find it. No store around Louisville or southern Indiana gets a consistent order of THE limited release of the week. Or month. Or year. EXCEPT the Keg. It never fails. Every week there is something Todd gets in that I am amazed by, be it a craft release from California or a Loon from Belgium. If youre looking for it, odds are he has it or is getting it. Most owners are content with just getting in whatever the vendors tell them is available, but Todd is a BA. He is into craft and you can tell. He makes sure that his store gets the releases you wont find at any other store. Every other store around Keg, be it to the east or west, can only try to be like Keg, but they never will be. Not to mention the fact that his staff is helpful, nice and knows what they are talking about. They know the product on the shelves, and most of them they have tried.

I honestly do not want to think about the countless limited releases I would have missed out on had it not been for the Keg being there. You owe it to yourself to stop by the store even if youre just passing through. We all know there are those shops that we frequent whenever we are visiting from another city. Go to the Keg once and this will be your stop for Louisville. I promise.

I travel quite a bit and whenever I am in Louisville, or Southern Indiana, I always stop by the keg to stock up. Todd is the definition of beer advocate and will go out of his way to show you beer you may enjoy or help you in anyway he can.

It may not be the cheapest prices you can find beer, but the extra $0.50-$1.00 you pay here is absolutely worth it.
