Stopped in on a day visit to Louisville. Liquor Barn is similar to the mega booze stores in Northrn Kentucky...which is good.
The one upside of the Liquor Barn is their massive tap selection and it appears you can order flights of beer and drink them in the store at one of many tables. With the stellar tap line up, this makes Liquor Barn a great beer bar with a warehouse atmosphere.
I picked up a bunch of high alcohol Dogfish Head (World Wide Stout, Olde School, and 120 Minute) that I can't get in Ohio because of the ABV limit. All prices were reasonable and I'd recommed it if you're passing through town.

I've visited most, if not all, of the Liquor Barn locations. They run the gamut from well-stocked but a bit grungy to downright opulent. This location hits the top of the scale. The "growler heaven" wall rivals the best area bars for tap selection. The bottled selection is excellent and there is a great deli and gourmet and specialty grocery offering. A very good regional representation and they seem to keep up with timely rotation of seasonals. The store staff is quite helpful. When the person I spoke with could not answer a question, he searched out someone who could and reported back.

All I can say is ... wow! Upon walking in there is a collection of 20 or so taps that feature everything from bells to FFF to a collection of locals. You can taste a 2 oz sample for .50 to 1.50 depending on the beer or get a 6 oz pour for a couple bucks or just get a growler to go. With California's laws this kind of thing would be impossible. This station coupled with the selection and the fact that you can split 6 packs makes this one of the best big block type beer stores I have ever been too. Although it might be a little large and corporate for some I would consider it a great stop if you are looking for craft brew in louisville.

A - 4.5 The Liquor Barn is a fun place to shop for me because it makes me feel like a kid in a candy store. The people are mostly friendly and it is usually busy because it is one of the most comprehensive stores in town.
Q - 5 Everything here is kept clean and organized. The products are definitely top-notch.
Ser - 4 Usually the staff has been friendly but they aren't always the most experienced or knowledgeable. Generally helpful nonetheless.
Sel - 5 I don't know that I've been to a better store all-around as far as total selection. The growler station has at least 30-40 taps and generally a great mix of locals, imports, and micro brews. There are a great supply of bottles as well, not to mention wine and liquor being just as competitive.
F - 4.5 There's a nice selection of good food here also, all of which I've had is of very good quality.
V - $$ Given the selection and availability of most products this store has a good value. It is very fair in price. The growlers are borderline inexpensive depending on what you want. Most bottled offerings are about what to expect for a store of this size. I wish they had more sales, however, but it won't keep me from going back when in town.

I would have to agree with several others this is the better of the three Liquor Barns in the area. The selection is very good and they have all the beers organized very well in and outside the beer cooler. The staff is very friendly and some of them have a pretty good knowledge of beer. I was there once and I was trying to make a decision on what beer to get, he made a great suggestion to get some Stone's beers, which I had not tried before, I was surprised by his recommandation. Not only do they have good beer selection they have some homebrewing supplies, not extensive, but desent enough to help out beginners.

I stopped into this Liquor Barn location for the first time on a recent trip to Louisville. Out of all the Liquor Barns in Louisville and Lexington I've been to, this is the best one for sure. A recent renovation made it so they now have 40 taps for growler fills. Yes, I said 40! They also have bottled/canned beer in both coolers and on the shelves. Liquor Barn has a great selection of craft, foreign and macro beers, along with a bunch of liquor, wine, and homebrew supplies as well. The pricing seemed reasonable, and the service is good too. Their selection is better compared to the other Liquor Barns in the area, so if you're planning on going to a Liquor Barn you should go to this one if you're looking for a great selection of beer. I'll be stopping in on all my future trips to Louisville!

This store is the reason I started seeking out craft beer. The store is roughly the size of a medium sized supermarket, and had a whole supermarket isle dedicated to a nice selection of craft beer. Each type of liquor has a supermarket sized isle dedicated to it, so the selection for any type of alcohol is definitely better than average. Other than that it has a humidor, frozen party food selection and fireworks. I have not found another store with the selection and variety this store has. Will definitely stop next time I am in Kentucky.

Stopped in this place on my way down form Chicago to Naples FL. I pretty much only came here to get a growler filled with something interesting, mostly because growlers can only be filled at a brewery in IL.
This store is very massive, easily rivals most Binny's in Chicagoland which is saying a lot. It looked very clean, and well organized. The 12ish or so growler taps were right near the entrance and a guy helped us right away. My goal was to get something local and they had some good stuff on. I went with the BBC Brandy Barrel aged Old Ale for $10.99. Seriously, a growler of a barrel aged high gravity beer for $11? I will take it!
The beer isle is wide and organized mostly by brewery. They had a fairly large local section, most of which I was unaware of. I didn't want to waste all of my vacation beer money on my first stop (although I easily could) so I just picked out a 750mL of a BBC reserve beer.
Overall a gem of a place in what seems like a high traffic area of the city. If I was a local I would be proud to call this my local store.

The last of the three Liquor Barns in the Louisville Area for me to review. I went there yesterday, looking to pick up something special for New Years Eve.
I have to admit that this is easily the largest of the three stores in Louisville. In fact, it's about twice the size of the other two stores. It also has a much larger micro and import selection. I saw stuff there I've never seen at the other stores, most of them being American micros. Very nice selection of Belgians and English Ales as well.
The have a small section dedicated to homebrewers, with some basic supplies and extracts.
The growler fill station has 8 taps of micro brews ($5.99 for refills as of this writing). On tap was Smithwicks, Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter, Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale, Kentucky Ale, Widmer Hefeweizen and Goose Island Octoberfest.
Where this place kind of falls apart is in the service department. I asked three employees three different questions and got two blank stares and one wrong answer. I asked the first guy where the draft beer to fill growlers was located. Got a blank stare and a reply of "What is a growler?". Not a good sign. Asked another guy where I could find a Duvel glass. After explaining that Duvel is a Belgian beer, I promptly got pointed to the wrong aisle (halfway across the store from the correct place). Finally, I asked whether or not the store carried Old Pogue (a bourbon I've been wanting to try). Now, remember folks, this is Kentucky. Birthplace of bourbon. A state that prides itselft on its bourbon. Hell, 90% of the bourbon made in the US comes from this state and a LOT of it never makes it out of the state.. You'd have thought I asked for fermented Yaks milk. This guy wasn't even sure where the bourbon aisle was, much less if they had Old Pogue.
so, go for the selection, but plan on finding it all yourself.

This is the liquor store I frequent the most in Louisville. I am most impressed with the variety of imports, especially English ales. Unfortunately, I have discovered many of these ales past their prime either by a freshness date or the amount of dust accumulated. Having said that, the selection is wonderful, just be careful. The domestic micro selection is also impressive with many west coast and mountain brewers present - Anchor, Anderson Valley, Left hand, and Sierra Nevada among others. The midwest is represented with Great lakes and Bell's, but strangely no Three Floyds. Again, some beers are clearly past their prime. Almost everytime I have been at this outlet, an employee has asked if I needed assistance. This is probably the best place in Louisville to purchase beer because of the selection; just be careful about the freshness.
