I'm totally not sure why I haven't reviewed this place before, because I stop here just about everytime I'm in town. The Cellar is centrally located in Norman & within good proximity of the major watering holes or university campus. The place is fairly sizable much like a grocery store with tons of shelving devoted to your beer, liquor or wine needs. The beer section is well organized & neatly labeled with ratings & suggestions with an awesome selection of singles from the mix-a-six wall. However, I'd suggest to call ahead or make special arrangements for the limited or special releases as this store gets a ton of "foot traffic" afterall it's in a college town. Overall, the staff is decently "beer savy" which was especially true when starflyer58 worked here. If you're an area BA then you're probably already shopping here, so this review goes out to the traveling BA who may be passing through looking for a good "road beer" stop. This is it!

Every time I visit this place I'm amazed at the selection. A big plus for me is the hundreds of singles available - especially all the Oklahoma beers unavailable outside the state. Prices seem very reasonable. Service is typically helpful and I'm often impressed with how in touch the employees seem to be with the extensive inventory. They have full case availbility (and pricing) for several popular craft beers. Huge selection of wines and spirits as well. I don't think I've ever left here without spending $100! A must-visit if you're in the greater OKC area.

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.

Great liquor store... massive selection of wines and spirits... pretty much anything you could possibly want. Great beer selection as well (at least for Oklahoma). You can even pick out individual beers from a large wall and make your own six pack. The staff is very knowledgeable and very useful in helping you pick out what you are looking for. They also feature seasonal and specialty brews so they are easy to find and try out. They often advertise new arrivals timely. Overall my favorite liquor store in Norman.

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.

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.
