The first thing people notice about Sergio's is that it's tough to find. As you're traveling into town on Brownsboro road, the bar is on the right after it turn into Story Ave, 2nd building from the corner of Frankfort. There are international flags covering the window. There is plenty of on-street parking whenever I've gone.
Sergio has been behind the bar every time I've visited. It is a cash bar, and I love that he trusts everyone to bring up their bottles and glasses at the end to tally up the cost. It's like going back in time to when people were less paranoid. He is incredibly friendly so I had to give the "service" a 5, not because they are doting but because they are friendly, knowledgeable, and genuine.
This is a pub, not a restaurant, so the food is basically just there to sop up the beer in your belly, and it does that just fine.
I've always thought the prices were reasonable, and I have tried a new beer every time that I have been to Sergio's. If you have a couple beer nerd friends, take them with you for an unforgettable experience. I'm getting ready to move back to Louisville and I can guarantee I'll be making Sergio's a regular experience. I totally agree with the other reviewers that called this place a "beer library." This place is like the beer Library of Congress.

Sergio's is truly an amazing place! This review could go on forever, but you need to experience Sergio's yourself. If you need help finding the place go to mapquest if you don't have GPS. It's a little difficult to find the first few times but you'll get used to it. They also had (they may still have) great beer specials on some of their nearly 50 taps. The food there is OK. It's not the best but it has improved since we have started visiting. The only time the food is really "good" is during the beer dinners. I believe they have stopped doing those however. It was a really good deal for $50 something. I encourage you to check this place out! You need to experience this yourself. It is well worth it!

Well, if you want to find Sergio's, the method is simple: ask someone behind a bar who has the best selection in town. Everyone who has a serious interest in beer around here knows how to get to Sergio's. Getting directions is likely your best bet anyway.
The beer selection is numbing. It's easy to forget that you're trying to pick a beer as you see row after row of amazing, unusual or unheard-of beers. The phrase "kid in a candy shop" is spot-on. A thousand-plus selections on bottle alone. Their website has the current draft list. Go look now. My jaw drops every time.
The food is good Largely unamazing, but quite tasty. Usually, this'd warrant a 4, but Sergio's hosts beer dinners in which the food warranted a 4.5.
The service and atmosphere seem to go hand-in-hand. It's not like a "bar", but almost like a "beer library." The people there reflect this idea. Wander around and make your selection, or ask them if you need help. Once you get one of them on the case, you will wind up with a beer you love. If price is an issue, mention that to them beforehand or they'll simply point you to the most exceptional (and often priciest) rendition of your request. Not to say they ignore you, because if you've made a selection or gotten food, they make sure that everything is up to your expectations.
With so much going for them, it's easy to see that they get busy. Their hands might be full when you get there, but it's completely worth the wait.

This isn't some uberchic cocktail lounge where the self-important crowd goes to be seen. With that being said...
Imagine having a great friend with a Man Cave...but not just any Man Cave. This is Beer Shangri-la...devoted entirely to amazing beers from all over the world!
Overwhelmed? Sergio, your host, will gladly recommend something from his incredible tap selection. If you require a beer list...ask for the Beer Bible, it's floating about somewhere. You can even reserve your beer selection online...just give 24 hour notice. You want that beer at proper temperature, don't you?
If you're in a hurry...wait until you've ample time to enjoy great beers, great food (try his world famous ceviche for starters), and intelligent conversation. to visit Sergio's.

I thought the location was great. The atmosphere was perfect, not to tight. Safe building and parking terminal with supervision. The food was good, just about everything on the menu is above average. Selection is of course the best thing you'll notice. Blows everything away in Louisville, and automatically anything in Kentucky. The representatives were very friendly, helped above their duties, and quite knowledgeable. I have been a "member" at Sergio's for over a year now. Just learned about BeerAdvocate through their staff. I will check it out thoroughly. RateBeer has been around a little longer so I got used to it.
