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!

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.

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 beer Valhalla. Over 1000 bottles and 40 taps. A food menu that exists solely to aid those that come in and end up tasting and drinking past the point that he or she should have. The walls and ceilings are adorned with old tap handles, bottles, and all kinds of beer-related knick-knacks. There are dozens of refrigerators fully loaded with brews of each and every style you have ever heard of, from the local ipa's to rare vintage lambics and stouts. Sergio is incredibly knowledgeable about his entire inventory, and if he notices you are looking for something specific, he will help you locate it amid his vast selection. Also, if you ask nicely, he will take you back into the cellar to give you a glimpse of the reeeaaallly good (and expensive!!) stuff he has.
Overall, the selection is just ridiculous and they people that work there know what they are selling. Be warned: the prices are high. Especially for vintage stuff. But most of it you won't find in Louisville, and probably not where you are travelling from either.

What can I say about Sergio's? It's a hidden gem accessible to those who really want good beer. The restaurant is simple, unassuming, and massively dominated by refrigerators of great beer. Regularly, beers unavailable anywhere else are imported into Kentucky of all places to be sold at Sergio's. Many beers of which only a few cases even come to the US are available to the every day consumer who stumbles in and out of Sergio's.
As far as a menu goes, the Hispanic focused cuisine vies for the best in its category in town. Some of the other menu items are half-hearted, but I give the restaurant a 4 for its focus on great Hispanic food.
Sergio himself is a world traveler who goes to the source to find the beers he wants to sell. He travels with some of the best names in the beer industry and regularly leads trips to Belgium, exposing disciples to the behind-the-scenes goings on at the heart of great beer. The man knows exactly what is in stock and can readily direct visitors to the beers which they will love.
The bar tenders are all trusted sources and know their beer. They care about beer and want to expose visitors to the best beers available.
Come with lots of cash, you won't regret it.
