This is one amazing place. Drove 3 hours north to check this place out and I was NOT disappointed at all. Picked up a couple of bombers of Stone RIS ( may be common other places, but definitely not in TN) some Goose Island IPA from 06 and 07, DFH 120, along with a ton of other stuff. They were sold out of Bells Expedition when I went ,which was a bit of a letdown, but the guy there said he would have some around in two days. Yep, I'm going back to get some. Also had Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout. Tons of different stuff. Every Belgian except Westie.

Stopped by while passing through on the way to Florida.
This is a very nice place to pick up some good beer. Very clean and organized with Kane at your side to answer any questions or to make recommendations if asked.
The selection was impressive. They had DFH, Stone, Bell's, Avery, and Goose Island to name just a few. Belgians were plentiful as was a nice mix of Oktoberfest brews put together on their own display. My favorite bottle was a huge 3-liter-bottle of Stone Double Arrogant Bastard for $65. Sadly, my wife said no to that one.
Prices were reasonable and I stocked up for my vacation. And what a vacation it was!

After reading the glowing reviews on this store, I had to make it a point to swing by the next time I had an excuse to be in Paducah. I wasn't let down. Really impressive selection, probably the best in Kentucky other than the Liquor Barn locations in Lexington and Louisville. Quite a few limited edition bombers that I hadn't seen elsewhere. On learning I was a beer geek, the proprietor brought out from the back a boxed oak-aged Flying Dog Gonzo Imperial Porter, one of a release of only 500. Had to turn it down due to the price tag, but it was nice of them to make the effort. Overall, the prices seemed a bit higher than average, but the service and selection are worth it.

Went there this past weekend while in southern IL. Let me start off by saying that this is bar none the best liquor store around. I was able to find Stone, Arcadia, Bells(no longer in IL) Thirsty Dog, Great Lakes, and Avery to name a few. Very nice selection, also had a closeout section which included a bottle of Rogue Old Crusty from 02 that was 2.00!!! Sweet! To top it all off, I was able to get a growler of DFH 90 min. as well. Looks as though they usually have 4 beers on tap, so bring your empty growler when you go. I will definitely be returning to this place. Three of us walked out of there 200 bucks in the hole, but well worth it.

I live in Mississippi which is a bad thing for a beer lover. If I want good beer then it means road trip. I've been to Greens in Atlanta many times. I checked out Brawley's in North Carolina (really need to get to that positive review). Anyway, while searching beerfly I come across Roof Bros in KY. Time to hit the road.
The selection is unbelievable. Stone (got a case of RIS), Bell's, Great Lakes, Avery, and many,many more. I also walked outta there with a growler of Brooklyn Chocolate Stout.
I can't speak highly enough of Cain, the beerman. He's forgotten more about beer than I'll ever learn. He approached me just after I'd walked through the door and was very helpful. Great dude that really knows his stuff.
I see myself making this trip many times.

Who knew that less than an hour and a half from my beer exile in Hopkinsville KY was to be found a freaking oasis. You can tell that this store's beer selection is immacualtely kept by a complete beer geek, and I mean that in a very good way. It is the kind of beer display that someone is obviously taking a lot of well deserved pride in. Especailly due to its location; I mean, who the hell is buying all of this quality beer in Paducah Kentucky?
There are tapped kegs and growlers available. They had just recently run out of DFH 90 Minute. Along with most everything you would need from DFH, Stone, Goose Island, Bell's, and many many that I was not familiar with, were many unexpected treasures: Deus, a bottle of Chimay 2000 Grand Reserve, a certain 10th Anniversary, long unavailable elsewhere. Jolly Pumpkin? Check. Hennipen? Check. Small but nice Belgian selection. The only reason I am knocking off .5 for selection is no Fantome or Dupont, but that is a minor quibble and one they believe they can correct :)
This place is amazing. They will be getting a nice chunk of my paychecks. Beer and wine tastings from 3 - 5 on Saturdays. Reasonable prices and a nice little discount for good customers. Their Beer Consutant is Kane, and regardless of the name on the door, this is his place. Give it a try. You will not be dissappointed.

The best place to buy beer in western Kentucky, hands down. Stopped by on September 30, 2006, while in town for the Barbecue On The River festival. Plenty of Rogue, Stone, Sierra Nevada, New Holland, Brooklyn, Hebrew, New Holland, Arcadia, Avery, and a number of smaller micros, including Bluegrass Brewing and Lexington Brewing. They were having a pumpkin ale tasting later in the day. Excellent selection of Belgian, English, and German beers, as well. Got some good deals on Bear Republic and Freeminer brews in the closeout section. Staff was attentive and helpful. They discounted my large purchase, carefully packaged two large boxes, and carried it to my car. Prices are generally higher than the better stores in Lexington, and Louisville, but this store is really a pleasant place to visit.

I never would have thought that while visiting my grandmother in Paducah, KY that I would find this mecca of a beer store, and I wouldnt have unless I had looked it up on Beerfly before venturing into the area. Man, what a find! Im from just outside of NYC, and Roof Bros, puts every single beer store near my home to shame. The entire store is gorgeous, and mostly devoted to liquor and wine (as my father explained to me, this McCraken County where Paducah is located is surrounded by dry counties, so everyone in the area flocks to Paducah to procure their booze), but the 3 coolers and 1 full aisle devoted to beer are phenomenal.
Selection was ridiculous, with offerings from Unibroue, Stone (still a ton of 2006 RIS on the shelf @ $7), lots of Bells (new to me) and even more local brews, such as everything from the Lexington Brewing Company, Bluegrass Brewing Co, and many more I cannot remember. There is a separate Trappist section featuring all of the Trappists except Westvleteren, of course.
They also have what I wish all beer stores would get: a closeout selection featuring seasonals just past their prime at reduced cost. I picked up a Rogue FestivAle (8/24) for $6 (not sure if thats discounted), and my very first Faro for $5.
Their glass selection is better than any Ive ever seen, featuring St. Bernardus (which I purchased), Rochefort, Paulaner (and some other Hefe glasses I cant remember), Leffe, Stella, Péche Lambic and approximately a dozen breweries pint glasses.
There were a few beers available as singles, but for the most part every 12 oz was part of a six pack, and there are no mixed sixers (there were around X-Mas, but the owner said it was too much of a hassle to keep track of things, so the policy stopped).
Saturdays from 3-5 pm there are tastings available on wine and beer for a modest fee of $1-$2 (They even put out a listing of the top 100 from BA for this occasion). I sampled beers from the Clipper City 12 pack sampler, which was decent, though not exceptional. It was nice, however, to meet fellow BAs and discuss beer, with hundreds of beers surrounding you to point at as epitomes of certain styles.
If you are ever in Paducah, or within 100 miles of Paducah, make it a point to stop in at Roofs, you will not be disappointed.

Man was i glad to find this place. It looked like a good liquor store from the front and i needed a beer. My wife and i had stopped in Paduka just to go to a brewpub and found out that it wasn't brewing anymore. A long day on the road, we needed some beer. The wife stayed in the car and i told her i would just be 5 minutes. Well, she started to get pretty worried...
I couldn't believe it. They had a banner proclaiming over 300 beers and i believe them. All the bier i could want, the only problem is it was damn pricey.
Belgians, Stone, German biers, DFH....I did NOT expect to fine 80 percent of these beers in Kentucky. It was great. Go to the bank.
