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:)

After hearing many Oklahoma BAs mention The Cellar, my wife and I stopped in to see what all of the hype was about. I must say that this is a very impressive store. They had a huge selection of liquor, wine, and beer not to mention an entire wall of single bottles for sale. The staff was very friendly and offered great advice on different beers to try. They also had some harder to find beers like the Belgian Yeti that I was unable to locate anywhere else near Oklahoma City. From now on this will be my go to store when I'm near Oklahoma City.

What all liquor/ beer stores should aspire to be. Selection is great and I hope they just keep on expanding on beer from around the globe. Staff is helpful and the atmosphere is bright and welcoming. Awesome store.

P.s. Get some more Wisconsin micro brews!!!

Welcome to a place for beer lovers. It's great to have a place like this in Oklahoma. Cellar features a wall of individual beers on sale...and not a bunch of garbage left overs. These guys know beer and keep their selection fresh and worthwhile. They can guide you to beers for aging, for drinking immediately, and for everything in between. Recommendations are posted everywhere and the staff is ready to help you at a moment's notice. Oklahoma may be somewhat limited on great beer distribution, but you can tell that the people at Cellar strive to stock their shelves with the best. I know when it's time to restock my beer fridge, Cellar is the place to go.

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.

Stopped in for the first time ever today to this Cellar branch in Norman and was greatly impressed. The store is large, only one other store in Hill Country of Texas was larger. The beer selection is awesome, if it comes to Oklahoma, they have it here. Also a superb wine and spirits selection is present with some very special treats sitting behind the counter.
I came in looking for Bigfoot as this was reported to be one of the last sightings in the state. Not only did they have it, but actually had a lot. One of the reps came by, saw my cart holding Bigfoot, Chimay, Rouge Double Dead Guy, Mephistopheles, and Kwak and asked what styles of beer I prefer. This quickly turned into a discussion of regional and world offerings of IPA's, DIPA's, Stouts, Belgian's, and Barleywine's. By the time it was done, I had four beers I had not even heard of riding home with me, and of the two I have sampled, I am mightily impressed with the knowledge and expertise.
The prices are a bit higher than some "bargain" stores, but the knowledge and expertise of the staff is what your paying for. Anytime you go in, just ask what's new on the beer wall, you may discover a gem.

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.

The staff was very polite and answered all of my questions. I bought most of my alcohol for my 50th birthday party there and was very happy with all of my choices. I'm not a wine aficionado at all but the staff was able to guide me in the right direction by asking me questions to reveal what I wanted because I didn't have the vocabulary to actually state what I wanted.

Sometimes, people just ask "what do you want?" and that doesn't work if you "don't know what you don't know"! They were also able to tell me what my guests would probably prefer given the fact that it was a mix of young and mature graduate students. Everyone was happy!
