Found out about this place while driving back from Akron, Oh. I'm always up for hunting down a beer store, and was very impressed with this State run store. Upon entering, there is a wine tasting area to the left. To the right, a huge stock of behind the counter liquors. As I continued my walk to the back of the store, I was spotted by a huge cooler section, filled to the brim with 4/6 packs galore. All sorts of great stuff from Founders, Bells, Great Lakes, Avery, Goose Island, and many others. There are also a couple shelves full of beer singles stored at room temperature. They have decent selection of belgians as well as some harder to find lambics. I stumbled across an unlabeled bottle, and asked the store clerk what it was. He had no idea. To add to that, I don't think he had any idea about any of the beers. To that I was a little disappointed but fortunately enough it really wouldn't have mattered as I know what I'm looking for. I left with a founders 4 pack of their elusive Imperial Stout (was shocked), and a 4 pack of Cane and Ebel, my favorite rye beer. All in all I would the trip was worth the drive, and would be up for stopping by again.

Great selection and if you are patient and wait for the right person to help you out, you will find some very knowledgeable assistance. Had a few breweries I had not been able to find at other stores in the Columbus area, in particular Three Floyds but in very limited supply that turns over quickly. Definitely on my list of regular beer shopping stops.

LOVE this place! First, their beer selection is excellent, especially given the tiny size of the store. If it comes in a bottle or a can, is available in Ohio and they don't have it, they'll get it for you. The employees are friendly, knowledgeable and will help you make an informed decision. They recently installed taps (2? 3?) for growlers, and usually have Ohio beers. The absolute best thing about it is the weekly tasting Thursday and Friday nights. There's always a theme - a specific brewery or style of beer. It's a great way to try things you wouldn't normally buy without the investment in a six-pack or even a pint!

Blacklick wine and spirits has a nice selection of craft beers. I live only a mile away and have frequented many times. Just recently realized that there was actually a walk in cooler. Occasionally can find a hidden gem in there. I have found beer here that is nowhere else on the east side including Anderson's. Just recently seems to be getting shipments of floyds. Any Ohio beer you want, this place pretty much has. Owner is helpful and will walk around with you giving suggestions. The guys behind the counter are knowledgable and will tell you if a beer you are buying is not worth the money. It's my kind of place!

PRICE GOUGING- I started coming to this place because they were close to work and alerted me when they received shipments of Great Lakes Xmas Ale. The selection was ok, but I pretty much stopped in out of convenience. Three weeks ago I was charged $14 for a 6-pack of the Xmas Ale, which is a little more than I typically would pay for a 6-pack but since it was seasonal I thought of it as a gift to myself. Three weeks later I get a notice that they received their final shipment and I stopped in and was charged $16 for the same 6-pack. I know the beer is in high demand, but this is bad business. They are not the only place in Columbus that sells the Xmas Ale so please go elsewhere!!!

I was visiting my sister and her husband out in Pickerington and they recommended this place for our beer run. First off, they are not big into the craft beer scene. The most adventurous they get is Newcastle and maybe Oberon in the summer. Not that there's anything wrong with those beers, just...anyway I stopped in here on my way to there house. The store itself is pretty nice, lots of wine and lots of liquor. Too bad I don't drink the hard stuff. I was told hello when I walked in but thats pretty much all I heard from anyone until I checked out. Their selection was ok but just did not wow me. I'm in Columbus for 2 wks and I've been to stores with much better selection. It's not that they have a small selection, just nothing that wowed me. Would probably stop back in when visiting again for that sixer of Newcastle or Oberon.

Convenient location off of 270 from the airport.

Great first impression, with a $.50 per sample wine tasting goin on when I was there (FRIG the tastings for both wine and beer are a regular occurrence). There was an employee dedicated to the $.50 per sample wine tasting that was going on when I was there on 11-13-10. The .'sampling room' is decorated very nicely with faux stone, giving the impression of a completely separate space from the rest of the store.

I would estimate that they are about 40% wine, 25% beer and 35% liquor. Despite that, they still had a decent selection including Founders, DFH, The Bruery and all other readily breweries in Ohio.

They also had a very solid selection of Belgians and DFH/Bruery vintage beers.

I'm in Columbus on business and sought this place out based on previous reviews. It's east of the airport a few miles but very convenient from 270.

I was absolutely floored by the selection, especially the number of aged beers. Being from Florida, I sought midwest and northeast breweries, which were represented well.

Lots of great scores including: New Holland Dragons Milk Oak Aged (12 and 22oz!), DFH Buff and a 2002 Unibroue Quelqe Choise.

Everyone was friendly and actually pretty knowledgable about beer, even if a little heavy on the promotion of IPA's.
