Sought this place out, only by virtue of me being in Dublin for the moment, thanks to the "places" feature on this sight..

Located in a strip mall..sort of tucked in the corner..I always give places that call themselves a wine shop, who happen to have beer as well..a bit of leeway..expectations are really set at zero..

that said i found this place appealing..

The beer area is small..with a few cooler doors, and about 3/4 of an isle, with not every shelf devoted to beer within.clean, which I like..not particularly organized..certainly not strewn about..

bombers, sixers and fours.a few singles..but a passable selection based on what I have seen in the area..I still walked out with a 3 bombers of different beers I havent tried..and at a fair price..

I recieved the obligitory "can I help you find something?" after a couple minutes lingering..nothing extrodinary..

Overall if you are an out-of-towner in the area I would definatley seek this place out..and if you live here..well I guess you know better selections are available 15-20 minutes away...

Pretty average place, but it has the best selection close to my home. Otherwise I am driving 15-20 minutes to go elsewhere.

Pretty cramped little place, small isles and no good place to stand and be checked out.

They have pretty standard Ohio craft beer: GLBC, Stone, Lagunitas, Bells, etc. They really fall short with 12 packs and samplers as there are almost none and the ones they do have aren't chilled.

Unfortunately, freshness is seriously suspect. There are often seasonals from last season or two seasons ago. Some bottles have a healthy coat of dust on them. I have gotten 90 Minute IPA here that was 9 months old and tasted more like a Scotch ale. Check freshness dates if available or buy when newly in season.

I stumbled upon this place while going to a nearby Mexican restaurant. I never know what to think about or expect from Ohio's State Liquor Agencies... such weird entities!

Decided to go in- surprise! Past the Bud Light and Keystone Light Warhol-like roadblocks, there are several fridges with good craft (and cold!) beer. Stone, Weyerbacher, Bell's, Dogfish... Good selection of six-packs and bombers.

For Dublin, this is a very nice little shop with quality stuff and good prices.

I'll go back!

This is probably the closest to home where I can find good craft beer. Their signs that say 250 plus different beers, I'm not sure about that. They do have a pretty good stable of Ohio's best including Great Lakes, Bells, Founders, Alesmith and Dark Horse.

Sometimes I think the staff has no clue about what is going on. They had a case of Dreadnaught there on special and said it was the last we'd be able to get for a while except for the fact that Three Floyds has been gone from Ohio for quite some time. After seeing this I really question how fresh some of there stuff is, but most of their stock is kept in a cooler.

Also they have a pretty solid hard liquor store here too.

Prices seem to be about right on with the rest of the city.

Located off Frantz Rd. between Tuttle Crossing & Hayden Run/Dublin Rd.

Decent service, the younger guy offers tips about beer and is pretty social. I noticed a new Wisconsin brewery on the shelves and he pointed out their other offering (cannot recall the brewery).

I assume they make most of their money off the liquor & wine selections; have about 5-6 door in the cooler dedicated to beer. The American craft selection contains the usual suspects: GLBC, SN, Southern Tier, Bells, Founders, Avery, Weyerbacher, etc. Mostly 6-packs and a door of bombers. They always satisfy my SN Torpedo craving.

Be careful when looking at IPAs and others; some old product sitting on the shelf. But, they have some of the older stuff which holds up such as Founders BS and SN Bigfoot.

Prices are pretty average for the region and its convenient location makes it an easy stop when I don't want to drive to farther spots (Kenny Rd. Market, Andersons, From the Vine, etc.). I am glad I stumbled across it a year ago & recommended if in the area and need good beer.

This is a liquor store in the Tuttle area that also sells wine and beer. It is located in a shopping center with a couple places to eat, a couple bars, and a drive thru. When you walk in the front door the beer stash is to the right and mostly in coolers that line the wall. The farthest cooler has a singles selection but it tends to be a hit or miss kind of thing. Quality seems to be very good but you can't be too careful. I have seen several selections that have been in the store for a year or more. Service is usually nice. Someone almost always tells me what new beers are in stock when I walk in. Some of my recent purchases include selections from: Columbus Brewing, Bells, Great Lakes, Founders, Southern Tier, Flat Earth, and Anchor.

Overall this is a decent stop to pick up a sixer of craft brews since most of the stock is kept cold. This isn't a store I would seek out but nice for the residents of the Dublin area to have so close.

Dublin Wine Cellar is located off Franz Road in Karric Square. Parking is plentiful in front of the strip mall.

The store is relatively small, with the majority of the beer being in coolers on the right side. There is also a small cooler of singles in the rear of the store. Some variety packs and larger quantity packs are on shelves as well.

The store claims to carry 250 different beers although that number may be a bit high. Domestic craft brewers like Avery, Magic Hat, Great Lakes, CBC, Stone, Bell's and Rogue can be found. As for imports, the regions are segmented in the coolers and Germany, the UK are represented among others.

Service is always friendly on my visits, and the proprietor is always quick to point out what new beers are in when he sees someone perusing the craft brews. They periodically host beer tastings as well.

Overall this is a good spot to hit in the Tuttle area.
