I will never go in here again. I was called a BITCH and told to leave when i brought my 10 month old daughter in to get my husband beer while he was at work. I would rather drive to Fort Wayne then give them any of oiur money

Randomly found this store while driving around this area of IN. For the size of the town it's in, this store is awesome! Big selection of beer, mostly shelf but some cooler space too. Lots of large formats and a small selection of single bottles. I live in Marion and there's nothing that even comes close to this kind of selection. Will definitely be back.

Stopped in here back in July on my way to Ohio to camp with some friends. The owner was very helpful in pointing out some great local beers that I could take and share with friends that weekend. I have been wanting to get back up here to look around some more. Today was the day. They have a nice selection of craft beer to choose from. I was able to snag the last two bottles of Goose Island Bourbon County they had (Sorry all). It was worth the hour+ trip for me to come here. I will stop back by again next July, if not sooner!

I have been going to the Bottle & Keg for their beer selection for about a year now. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. I think the selection is good for the size of the store. My favorite beers come from FFF and they have plenty to choose from whether it be growlers or 6pks. The previous reviewer mention $15.99 for a growler of Chimay Blue. When I looked today, it was at $13.99. Other 4/6pks are very reasonably priced. For example, I picked up a 6pk of Hopslam for $16.99. Its usually $18.99 in Fort Wayne, IN where I live.

I recently found out that Fat Head Head Hunter IPA was making its way into Indiana (from BA). I asked if they had heard anything about it and they had not. They said they would find out for the next time I come in. Two weeks later and they had 2 4pks saved for me. Talk about service!

They also have great selections from Bells, Victory, New Holland, Rogue, O'Fallen, Southern Tier, Founders and Dark Horse. I was pleasantly surprised to find Dark Horse Plead the 5th last time I was in.

If you find yourselves passing thru Roanoke, Indiana, it would be well worth your while to stop in and see what they have to offer. Or just make a little road trip...you'll find something you like.

Took a drive out to Bottle & Keg to see how it compared to the (lousy) Fort Wayne liquor stores.Was somewhat disappointed.

Decent, but not great craft beer selection,including the Hoppin Frog line,which was really the only thing I saw that was out of the ordinary.Decent FFF selection. A few semi-rarities,but nothing earth shattering.

Prices were even worse than the horrible Fort Wayne Prices.$15.99 for a large bottle of Chimay Blue for example. Ridiculous.

Might as well shop in Ft Wayne, unless you really want some overpriced Hoppin Frog.
