Found this gem of a beer store while visiting my brother-in-law who lives in Mentor. Very unassuming facade, but once you're inside it's all beer. Great all-around selection. Since I live in Europe I was more interested in the domestic craft beer, but checked out the imports and was very impressed. Probably the best part about this place is the fact that they sell singles that are not overpriced like most places. Most beers are under $2.00. The selection was incredible. Lots of west coast stuff to include Rogue, Stone, Bear Republic and Alesmith. Other mentionables included Founders, Bells, Southern Tier, Brooklyn and Avery. The lady at the counter was extremely friendly and fairly knowledgeable. She turned me on to some Founders Devils Dancer that she didn't have displayed. Had planned on visiting some other beer stores in the Cleveland area but there was no need after stopping here. Great store! (910 characters)

You can tell by the photo this place ain't all fancy and pretentious. The guy in line in front of me was getting a 30-pack of Miller Lite and the woman behind me a box of wine. Meanwhile, I got a six-pack of Anti-Hero, something from The Bruery and a bottle of KBS -- all at almost half the price of my usual craft beer shops in Pennsylvania. Plenty of friendly banter initiated from the guy behind the counter, too. Would stop here all the time if I lived anywhere close. (476 characters)

Tons of bottles to pick from but if you want to fill a growler call before you as they don't update the website as often as needed. (131 characters)

The best use of an old Dunkin Donuts location EVER!

Doesn't look like much, but what a great store. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. They are willing to let you browse or will walk around pointing out all the gems. Hell, they even carry your cases (yah, I bought a lot) out to the case for you. An incredible selection on the growler filling station as well (Bodhi, DirtWolf, Breakfast Stout, Hop JuJu, Speedway!). If you spend a few minutes shopping and talking with the staff to prove you aren't a D-Bag, you will most likely be rewarded....that's all I'm sayin' ;). (583 characters)

Stopped in due to the great ratings on here while driving through Ohio over the summer. We arrived about 5 minutes after opening time on a Sunday morning only to find the store looking closed.... luckily for us it wasn't. The owner was inside, opened the door and turned the lights on. He was very welcoming and had many suggestions of what brews were new and good. Very helpful.

The selection enormous. It seemed like most of the stuff was laid out in singles but six/four packs of mostly everything could be found. Lots of singles both in the cooler and out on the shelves, of which there are many. This was certainly my sort of store where you could look around and seemingly find hidden treasures at every corner. I am sure he would have told me where anything was but I kind of find it to be part of the fun looking around myself at first. Left with four mixed-six packs of brews from OH, MI (ton of Bells) to CA (which I can't get some of in MA). Honestly probably one of the best selections I have seen in ANY beer store around the country. Didn't seem overly dusty but also didn't seem like they moved things as fast as the best of them. Plenty of US craft as well as Belgian and foreign bottles as well. Prices were much better than what I am used to paying in MA, save-on indeed. Anyone with a selection of singles around them like this is very lucky. (1,362 characters)

Good stuff, Wally will only take care oif you on the rare ones if he feels like. Which is about 50% of the time. James has grown on me but is still a bit 'out there' Amazing selection of singles, most of which are cold. (220 characters)

HAD to stop in while running around over the holidays. Blown away by the selection of craft beers available. This is the type of place where you honestly don't know what to get because there is so much available. Best part of it is, is the staff are readily available to make recommendations. Prices are what the are and appear to be at state minimum judging by my "normal" purchases. If you want a beer that exists in Ohio, you are very likely to find it here. Recommend getting your favorite then build a six pack of related beers that you will find here...you may end up with a new favorite. (594 characters)
