I was pleasantly surprised by the vast selection they had. Lot's of local brews to choose from. They also had a wide national and international selection.

Had a great conversation with one of the employees about local beer (since I'm from Indianapolis). He showed me all the local stuff and gave me some background on them. They were very helpful and let me pile up a ton of bottles at the register while I was browsing.

Stopped in here over the holidays and was presently surprised by the selection. Great choice of Ohio beers and locals from Columbus. The staff was very helpful and had a great knowledge of beer. There is a growler-fill station as well, although I didn't fill. Overall a great place and I certainly would return. They also had a selection of ciders and meads.

Excellent craft and import selection - extremely knowledgeable staff - one of my go to stores in Columbus - reasonable prices - no steals but in line with other area stores - can purchase any beer individually - just ask and they will gladly accommodate.

Always a great craft beer selection here and their prices are right on par with everyone else in town , well lit and ample parking .

They also have liquor and wine in store just in case you are shopping for other things , makes for a nice one stop shop.

They usually have all the latest releases and quite a few Belgium , German and other imports as well , If you follow them on Facebook you will know when certain beers are being released.

They also have a nice store in front of the beer shop with a nice cheese selection and a helpful staff that will help with pairings.

This is my favorite place to shop for beer in Columbus period , They have a very knowledgeable staff ( Adam , Julia ) that have always been friendly and eager to help with any question .

They have tastings every Saturday and for a few cents you get to try some new release and specialty beers .

One of the few places where you are actually treated like a customer and I appreciate that in a business.

Beer in the back in kind of its own room, actually has its own entrance. 2 staff were helpful and giving adive to others. Inquired if I needed help, which I didn't. Took the time to comment on purchases and others I may like, this is the service as a geek I look for. More in the way of passing suggestions, extrapolating from what I purchased.

May not have as much rare stuff, but they had some nice seasonal stuff people may just not realize is good. Bestefar comes to mind. MUCH better OH selections than Palmers. Came through looking for locals, Alesmith, Troegs and 3F. This place satisfied the local fix. They had one Alesmith(Speedway), but not what I was looking for. The make your own sixer had mostly large micros in it. Still I purchased about a 1/2 case of stuff here versus the 3 bottles from Palmers, though to be fair this included 2 four packs.

Reminded me a bit of the Green's warehouses in SC, though a little smaller. Maybe a small Binny's also. Would stop again passing through, same with Palmers. 71 going north or south, these are just a get off one exit, stop, get back on the next one down.

Somehow I never made it around to stopping by Weiland's until last night. It's in a small shopping center, and Weilands is an actual grocery store.

Parking was annoying because the shopping center was busy as hell at 6pm on a Saturday night.

The beer is located way in back in a separate liquor store area. There beer is split into two opposite sides of the room. On your right is a small cooler space full of mostly BMC, and a rack of singles that consisted primarily of Belgians, saisons, and sours.

On the left side is a larger cooler lined with a few singles but mostly chilled 6/4packs of craft. There are also a few more shelves stocked with more craft beer.

I came in search of something specific and didn't find it so I moved on. However they were carrying Breakfast Stout and had a couple bottles of Rockmill Cask-Aged Tripel which seems to be in high demand.

Prices were a step higher than they should be, but nothing outrageous.

Overall definitely worth a stop, especially considering its proximity to Palmer's.

Weiland's has a pretty nice selection of beer and the prices are quite fair--they had a very small selection of singles, which were generally of poor quality and unattractive. However, the quality of beer on the whole was very good. Prices were good but I didn't really see anything that was a steal to speak of. The atmosphere is good too, as the beer/liquor is in its own room aside from the busyness and noise of the grocery market. Staff was very friendly and seemed to know their beer, which was refreshing.
