Brewniverse is a somewhat small store that sells retail bottles and home brew supplies. They make excellent use of the space and provide an impressive amount of bottled beer and home brew supplies. The distribution in north Louisiana compared to south Louisiana can be like night and day, but they stock as much quality offerings that they can get their hands on: Locals such as Abita, Tin Roof, NOLA, ECt. Southern Star, New Belgium, Clown Shoes, Slumbrew, High and Mighty, St. Somewhere, Sam Adams, North Coast, Anchor, Sierra Nevada, Widmer. Also have plenty of imports, good German brews, Belgian, and ECt. Selection is great and sets the standard for Shreveport. The owners are also as courteous and helpful as can be. You can tell he's passionate about beer and loves to talk about it. Price was very inexpensive; going to another bottle shop afterwards, I saw many bottles were significantly pricier than that of Brewniverse. All in all, Brewniverse is exactly what Shreveport has needed and is a must stop if you're in the area.

I heard about Brewniverse from a friend, and so I thought I would make a visit.
This is a relatively new shop in Shreveport. They do not have their liquor license yet (only beer), so, the Louisiana laws won't allow them to sell anything above 6% abv. They tell me the paperwork is in, and they are waiting for State approval.
Anyhow, they do have a nice selection for NW Louisiana. All the usuals from Abita, Covington, Tin Roof, Bayou Teche, and Spoetzl. All the usuals from Sam Adams as well.
They have a good selection of German imports (Franziskaner, Weihenstephaner, Paulaner, Bitburger, Erdinger Weiss, etc). The Franziskaner born-on date was Aug12, so, reasonably fresh. Also some UK imports, London Pride, Samuel Smith, etc.
They have a few Cali beers, SN Pale ale, Porter, Stout, and Kellerweis. An assortment from Anchor, and a few from Bear Republic. Also, a few Belgium beers. They tell me they expect to carry an assortment from New Belgium soon, as well as Chimay.
The place is a little small, so that does limit the selection. But for Shreveport, it really is a breath of fresh air, or should I say fresh beer. I will stop in again.
p.s. I forgot to mention, they have a complete supply of home brew items, books, equipment.
