This is another branch of The Cellar family. This store is no exception to quality and service. The store is large and spacious and is one of the better store downtown Norman. It was nice to see this store go in. The store offers a wide array of liquors, wine and beer. The beer selection is one of the best in Norman. The quality of the beer is no exception, they take good care of there customers here. The service is top notch also. The will ask you what your looking for and try to help you find the beer or help educate you on beer styles for the beginner. The selection is great also, there are over 500 different brew from a plethora of brewers all over the united states and world. The store is slightly pricey but you pay for what you get. If you want great service, great quality, and great selection in Norman then you go here.

4.65/5  rDev +6.4%

I have been going there since moving to the area about 6 months ago. Selection is better then any shops that I usually frequented in the Los Angeles area. Only down side is because of the OK liquor laws, which limits what they actually can offer.

Service is really exceptional, as somebody mentioned they will talk to you all you want or just let you browse around. From my non beer purchases they also seem very knowledgeable about their other offerings.

Was very surprised with some special offering they have. I am now sipping an Avery Mephistopheles from 2007 that they aged on site. Very good and quite a nice bit of service. I hope they have aged some other brews that can be better when aged.

4.8/5  rDev +9.8%

The Cellar is going for quantity AND quality. Excellent selection to be had here... perhaps the best in the state of Oklahoma. Best I've seen anyhow. They won't win any price contests but I don't think that is the point at this location or The Cellar up in The Village.

Everytime I go in there I'm the proverbial kid in a candy store as I go through the new beers and then the old familiars and attempt to decide what new beer I'll try next. Picked up 4 singles today that I've never had and a sixer of Indica IPA which is another new one for me. Sweeet.

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the service. They won't bother anyone who just wants to browse... but they're more than happy to engage anyone who wants to talk beer. And they know what they're talking about. Seems as if the denizens of the beer section were hand picked by management out of a group where only beer lovers need apply.

3.8/5  rDev -13%
quality: 3.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4 | $$$

This has been my go to liquor store for about the past year. On the plus side the store is massive and boasts a nice selection of beers, at least for OK. Another benefit is that you can buy any beer there as a single rather than as part of a 6/4 pack (although they don't offer a make-your-own-6 at a flat rate - you have to purchase each one individually). However, I have found that they have some offerings there which are past their prime. Therefore, I recommend checking the dates of anything you purchase there, or at least stick to the seasonals or new releases. The price of having such a huge selection is that sometimes certain brews might sit of the shelf for a long time...

Figured since I've always had so much luck with the Cellars in OKC, I should stop by this one and see what's kickin' as my wife and I were in Norman for a doctors appointment. After deducing that the Cellar had taken the place of the old Hobby Lobby, and speculating on why Hobby Lobby was gone as it was always fairly busy, we pulled into the parking lot and moseyed on in.

We were greeted at the door by a friendly lady and gentleman and by a vast space full of tons of wine, liquor and beer. My wife perused the wine while I headed to the back for the beer wall where I was met by a section of "New" beers. I like this, as all the newer brews are in one place, and you don't have to peruse the fairly vast selection to seek out seasonals or new releases.

As with the other cellars, the selection is very nice, with your usual suspects, as well as a bunch of new beers by Great Divide, Rogue, Sam Adams, Boulevard etc. The Belgian section also has a nice group of offerings. If you're in Norman you should not want for just about any type of beer you want. If you're looking for a hop fix, they got it. If you're looking for some hefes or Belgians, they got it.

While Oklahoma's beer laws are pretty screwy, places like the Cellar are helping by keeping a good stock of brews and keeping up on the new release. I only see it getting better.

5/5  rDev +14.4%
quality: 5 | service: 5 | selection: 5 | $$

Its not always easy giving out a 5/5 in every category for a store, but The Cellar definately deserves it! This isn't your typical hole-in-the-wall liqour store. No, this is something else. The service was amazing. From spirits to wine and booze, these people know their stuff!! Also, if you've seen the size and layout of the store, you know this place deserves an exceptional rating for the selection category. Its like the Whole Foods of Liqour! I've always bounced around to different liqour stores in Norman, but now I've found my new home:)
