The Bottle Stop is the Bomb. Forget what your mama taught you. The owner, Matt, is one jazzy dude.

I travel back to Stevens Point 2 times a year from Las Vegas to visit family, and Bottle Stop has become my go to source for Wisconsin goodness.

In the past I would hit virtually every liquor store in Portage County to hunt oddities and have decided to only shop at Bottle Stop.

This store is the best curated selection in town. The owner takes time to make sure he is carrying the freshest and finest. He also has a sizeable stash of most Central Waters releases every time I am there.

While selection is important I feel that service is equally important. While I only shop there 2 times a year he remembers me everytime, and makes sure to point out the under the radar beers that I may not have heard of.

Top notch in all aspects!

Stopped in here and filled the trunk with Central Waters barrel aged goodness. The cases loaded up in the front of the store were the star of the show.

After cleaning the owner out of all his CW stock he was more than happy to let us in on some secret stash stuff in the back. Big time score for us.

Other than the CW stock the selection was decent. All the usual local suspects. Solid amount of bottles from around the country.

The owner was super friendly and even help carry my cases out to the car.

Great stop in point if you need a bottle or two.

Southern Tier

and more!

Plus,
a limited number of Belgians,like Mikkeller, De Struise, Corsendonk, Petrus you can't find anywhere outside of Madsion/ Milwaukee.

They have carved out a niche and seek to stock what beer geeks really want. Their policy seems to be, if you don't see something you want ask, we'll try to get that for you.

Prices are average for non-grocery beverage retail outlets.

Can't wait to see what they get as far as special release stuff as the winter (holidays) draw near.
