Although I have a friend who hits up the Cellar and can grab me special stuff as needed, I checked it out firsthand today. Nice little place, more wine than beer, but the guy has boxes of beer tucked into every conceiveable place, really maximizing the inventory as best he can. I saw beers here that I haven't seen elsewhere, and promptly snapped 'em up! Most of the beers are room temp but some are stashed in coolers, which is a better bet for sake of freshness.

There is a table of singles to mix/match a sixer. Check for dates as I saw a wheat ale bottled in '07 that really should not be sold.

Very small store with very nice selection. Product is stashed everywhere, with bottles hidden behind shelves and in nooks. Very little order to be found here. Found some old bottles of IPA's they were way past there date. So make sure to check the date. Not bad, it's worth checking out.

Best small beer store in town. I go there often on my drive home. This is my place when i am looking for something that the big guys dont have. Staff is always knowledgable and friendly. The 5l mini keg of Hopslam that they held for me was fantastic.

Bigger variety than anyplace nearby. There's beer here I can't find other places. Definitely worth a visit. West Coast, East Coast, and some very tasty Regionals. Friendly guys at the counter. Take your time looking around, there are some finds tucked away on the shelves. If you're looking for something hard to find, start here. Great collection of Stone, Dogfish for the more popular good stuff. I don't get the staff complaints in some of the reviews, they answered every question I ever asked.

A very good selection with some major finds. Was able to get the 13th Anniversary Ale from Stone, it came in the same day. The store was somewhat cluttered not very organized but the beer selection made up for it. They still had some Vertical Epic left, both 10/10 and 11/11. I was also able to find some Oak Aged Choc Yeti, Stone Russian Imperial Stout and Hoppin Frog's Boris the Crusher. They also had a six pack of Sculpin! (In Cincinnati)....Nuff said. I will definitely go back as they are trying to get more of a selection from 3 Floyds.
