Went last night and was plesantly surprised. Walking in, it has the same spatial demeaner of local Lexington powerhouse stores 'Liquer Barn'. They had a very good wine, cigar, and party supplys sections. Although they had some interesting food items, this is not why to go here. What is? The beer. They had a similarly sized selection of beer as Liquer Barn, but had some different beers; beers that are more obscure, hard to get, better aged, and rarer. Their prices were average at worst, and cheap on many of the products that I wanted most. All of their selection may be bought as singles; you don't have to buy the whole six pack. They also had 4 beers on tap to take home in growlers, of which is Stone IPA and a few other lesser ones. Beers bought on this trip: Belgian Reds, St Bernardus 12, St. Fruellen, Old Foghorn, and Millineum ale. A small homebrew selection was nice to see, but lacking in selection from most serious shops. The staff seemed eager to help although I didn't need much assistance. Look for reviews of these beers comming soon. Good experience, will be back.

Very nice place. This is just like a small version of my local beer shop, Liquor Barn, with a great selection. Very well stocked and organized as well. They even have some homebrew supplies! I got a lot of good beers here, including some really hard to find stuff, so I am very happy with my trip there. I didn't have much interaction with the staff/service, so I'm not a good judge of that. But the quality and selection is great! Lots of the hard to find Belgians and a lot of older stuff - like 1996 versions of Rogue products and things like that.

Another surprise found within an hour of home. While approaching Cincinnati, my wife said she wanted a drink. I knew where to find this place and decided she would be able to find something to quench her thirst while giving me a chance to poke around the beer selection. All I can say is wow. I found so many new beers here that I will have to take a trip here every few months to grab a few more to supplement my stocks. Most of the back wall of the store is refrigerated cases, with a walk-in fridge behind the cases. There is also a nice selection of glassware, which I am always interested in as well. I am starting to save my pennies so I can come back here and pick up some beers I haven't had yet. Since it is right on the way out of Kentucky when I drive back to Illinois, this will become a more frequent stop for me.

This store has much of the big box feel that seems to be catching on for full line beverage and party supply stores. There are lots of supplies from glassware to other party needs available here. Courteous staff and great checkout service. While I was looking at cooler beers, a manager was ranting on his cell phone to someone involved with this store. Seems someone had not properly unboxed and displayed a line of beer and he was beside himself because it had embarrased him with a distributor or supplier of some type.
Lots of really great beer available and nicely displayed by country or region of origin. Some fairly rare brews setting on some of the room temp shelves.
Good parking and easy in and out. A "must stop" in the Cincy area.

Party Town used to be called The Party Source, and was owned by the Party Source in Bellvue, Kentucky, until it was sold and renamed. They still maintain an awesome selection of imports and micros. You can be sure to find all offerings by Bell's, Rogue, Stone, SN, Goose Island, Great Lakes, and others. They have many imports including a wide variety of German, Belgian, and Canadian beers, among others. The beer managers are very friendly and are always willing to answer any questions, or listen to any comments. Party Town even has a growler program with 4 seasonal beers on tap to take home in growlers. When I was there in the early summer, the growler selections were Bell's Oberon, SN Summerfest, Goose Island Summertime, and Leffe Blond. All of the beers are very reasonably priced as well. The staff is nice and helpful as well. Mike, the nighttime beer man, is great to talk to, and is very knowledgeable about all things beer. This is definately a great place to check out if you are in the Florence area. All the great selection without having to drive in Cincinnati traffic.
