The other good reviews are dead on. Of the places I've lived this is a good local shop. The selection of beer and other items (like super inexpensive, yet smooth, 20+yr aged Guatemalan rum) is really top notch. They will try to order you anything you need. The staff is helpful and can even suggest other things you might like. They have no problem going to the back to check their inventory.

I don't ever walk out of here with less than a case of beer. It's dangerous.

It's a neighborhood spot where they remember you.

I stopped here after asking on the bartenders at Three Floyds to guide my to a good local beer store.

I was blown away by the selection of mid-west rarer beers and a long shelf of Belgians. I found several bombers from Three Floyds that even the brewery was not carrying in bottles.

The staff (I assume the store owners) were very kind and accommodating. I'd shop here agin if I lived anywhere near here.

Good selection for an Indiana shop just outside of Chicago. Visited after DLD, just a quick smash and grab operation.

Obvious highlights were Bells and Stone (no IRS), a few Belgians seldom seen in IL. Otherwise pretty standard for imports. They had Behemoth in the coolers at the far end. No one on the floor, but cashier was friendly enough. Good deals to be had on Stone bombers. Check the top shelf, my beer aficionado friend.

They need to add a second archway with hop vines, to match the grape vines in the wine section. Pure class.

Stopped in here last night after finding it on this website. Thought I was in heaven. Having recently moved back to the US (from Europe) I have been desperately trying to find a store within a reasonable distance from Valparaiso that has a good selection of Belgian beers. I have found it. They have an excellent selection of Belgian, German, British, micros and craft beers. While there, I met Harry (the owner) who is a great guy. Very knowledgeable about beer, and a heck of a nice guy. He will give you a 10% discount on case purchases, and if you want something that's not on his shelf, just ask. He has an extensive list that he can order from. According to Harry, he guarantees that everything in his store is fresh. This just may become my favorite beer store.

Note -- my comment on the pricing is in comparison to IL prices on beers available there and in comparison to Bell's/Stone prices elsewhere. I don't know how it compares to other IN stores.

My love of the Liquor Stop far exceeds my numerical rating! I love the Liquor Stop, for because of it, I got to try Stone brews. The only Stone brew that was less-than-wonderful that I've had was the ninth anniversary ale. As others have mentioned, it's a great source for Bell's brews for Chicago-area folks. I was introduced to Mishawaka Brewing Co. brews by the Liquor Stop. It has IN and MI brews not available in IL. It has a fairly decent selection of British, Belgian, and German brews. I often get to find Great Lakes brews that are hard to find in IL.

The new owners (well, not so new anymore!) are friendly, as are the workers -- some of whom are quite knowledgable. Atmosphere -- well, it's an old liquor store with narrow aisles. Good liquor and cordial selection as well.

Edit -- have to bump up the selection based on "things you can't get in Illinois plus an understanding of area IN liquor stores"; bumping up service as well. And bumping up atmosphere, because no one should suffer becuase of cinder blocks.

The Liquor Stop is pretty much my local store, but with going out of town for beerfests I really have not been in here for a while.
The place is pretty much as I remember with an even better selection of Indiana beers, regionals and national microbrews.
The import selection is heavily German with a few Belgians thrown in for good measure.
Patel, the owner, and John always take good care of me when I come in. I sometimes leave with a free collectors set of this or a free T-shirt. They do these things even when I have not been in for a while and I really do appreciate that.
They do have the best variety and selection in town hands down. They have a decent amount of Stone products that keep the folks from Illinois coming in.
This is a great place to look for beer they always have a surprise or two on hand. Stop in even if you are not going to Three Floyd's Brewpub.

The liquor stop... it's been a while.

This place has more and less than I remember....
It's a bells central for the IL crowd, but they don't offer as much backroad since the new ownership took over... that outta the way... they now have mishawaka and mad anthony.... two breweries previously known for being east side exclusive... they had Darkhorse standards and some seasonals... but they sell out and are gone... The founders here was a plenty.... they currently have an assload of devil dancer.... and the other standards, barley island,. upland, and oaken barrel are easily available... the other sections of the store are there but not expansive... belgians are okay but not awesome as goes for the english, german and others... they have a really decent supply of craft brew... So very worth the stop when you swing by on 80/94.... and they have stone by the assload if you haven't had that yet....

there were still some behemoths there as of this posting 15.99

I don't like it as much as I used to for atomsphere, but thats just me being whiny... but it's my review so bleah....

Service is there if you need it, but beerhunters like me like to stalk the beer unmolested....

there's a couple of cold craft doors on the far side of the store.... but there's not much to get excited about...

I've been here too much, it's a great store for craft, but I've got the coveted feeling of taking whats close for granted... if you know what I mean.... and I think it's a little pricer for some stuff, but others you just have to suck it up specially with the price of gas these days....

The Liquor Stop is a "must hit" store if you are visiting Three Floyds. The store has one wall and the back corner devoted to craft beer.

Regional breweries are very well represented here, as well as examples from big well known breweries like Stone. You'll find some of the better beers from Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Illinois here, making the Liquor Stop a stop that you will need to visit if you are traveling through the area.

This place changed hands and was sold to a new owner in the past year, but it doesn't seem to have changed the selection or the quality of the place any at all. With that said, I wouldn't expect to get a whole lot of customer service here. I haven't really asked for it, but in all the visits I have made, I have never seen the employees/owners come out from behind the front counter. But this hasn't really been a big problem in my experience.
