I have been here once before, but wanted to give them a review.

It's a smaller store, but there is a great selection of local and national breweries along with some stuff that is harder to get in our area (Three Floyds, etc.). MOST of the beer is kept cold which is awesome and they even have 12 tap handles that are constantly being rotated! Even better? You can bring in any growler and have it filled.

Their prices are on par if not cheaper than some bottle shops. They also have a nice selection of wine is that your thing, but we're here for the beer right?

The guy running the shop was very, very friendly and I had a nice chat with him. Even got to sample a beer! The owner is also very nice and accommodating. I had called to see if they had a certain beer and they did and even held it for me! Awesome place.

I highly recommend not ignoring this place and visit them when in Lakewood! Very close to Rozi's.

First impressions don't do this gem any justice. After passing by many times, the Beer Gods cleared a front row parking spot for me today! Many great choices and my man today was definitely spot on with his knowledge of the porters and stouts. I didn't even see the taps, so when he offered me a sample of what they have at the growler station i was hooked. This will be my first stop on my future excursions. Great find and thank you Beer Gods.

My only visit occurred on Sat., May 12 after having gone to the IXBF the night before. I mention that because I'd already had so many great beers, in addition to already having stopped by Rozi's a few minutes prior.

I was driving down the road and would have missed it if not for my co-pilot spotting it. We turned around and parked out front. From the outside, I wasn't expecting much at all. However, the inside revealed a surprising little beer hideaway. The space is rather cramped, but there's beer everywhere you look. And when you think you've seen all the beer on shelves/in coolers, you turn the corner and there are the taps. Not to mention the growler options are pretty enticing!

We weren't crushed by "Can I help you?" or watched like hawks. Very welcoming environment and when I had questions about the beer on tap/growler choices and needed one filled, they jumped right in to action and took care of it quickly.

For a throw in after the Beerfest and Rozi's, I was very happily surprised with the Ross Deli and it will be an integral part of any future visits to Lakewood.

After passing by this place many times; I decided to stop in. Ross' is a corner store turned beer-mart. Coolers, and shelves are packed with mainly craft, and import beer. They also have twelve taps for growler fills. The staff are friendly, and eager to assist. I had a problem with a growler fill my first time there, but the owner took care of it with no questions asked. Their pricing on bottles are right in line, and their growler fills are the cheapest that Ive seen.

Ross' is another beer store in Lakewood worthy of visiting.
