This is an outstanding beer store. In addition to having two coolers chock full of interesting selections, and several floor-to-ceiling sets of shelves full of crazy choices, most of which are imports, it also has 10 or so beers on tap.

I had a Three Floyds Rabbid Rabbit, which I had never tried. I enjoyed it, as well as chatting with the fellow who worked there and worked the taps. My friend had a porter he liked as well.

The store is semi-expensive, but considering the outlandishness of the choices, I'd say the prices were actually reasonable. They had stuff I've never even really seen. They also had three bottles of KBS listed at $6.95 a pop....

I'd highly recommend this place to anyone who's a beer fan and is looking for something beyond Budweiser-like choices.

This place has whatever is in town at the moment, but also an excellent foreign selection, especially sours. Always good recommendations and while a limited amount of taps, always good stuff. They also own Holy Grale and I presume whenever the big dogs come around(Cantillon, Framboos, etc.) they throw a lot to the Grale (on premise consumption and higher price), all in all a good problem to have. This should be at the top of everyone's list when visiting Louisville.

This is what a beer store should be. Great staff, great beer, great location. I enjoy that the staff are just as knowledgeable as they are friendly and helpful so I'm almost always sure to get a delicious beer that I may have never known existed. If you love beer and are in Louisville, you want to go here.

This place rocks! killer selection of brews I cannot get in Jersey. The staff was top notch and knowledgeable. I will absolutely visit this place again. I can't stress enough the cool staff when I was there in October 2014. Recommended!

Stopped in while in town. Selection was great, but prices were really high. For example, a bottle that I got in NYC for $6.99 was $8.99 here. Could be distributor mark up, but $2 seems like a lot on a bottle under $10. Prices kept me from buying much.
