Aficionado's is my favorite craft beer store in the Columbus area. They also sell cigars and wine. You will not find staff that is more friendly and helpful. The craft beer selection is great and the owner Kevin can get you on a notification list for rare stuff from 3 Floyds, Founders, Deschutes, Bell's, etc. They have several tastings every month.
The best thing is ... the store is very close to the Polaris mall. Drop you wife off there and spend and hour or two in Kevin's store.

For a long time, this has been my favorite beer shop in Columbus, Ohio. I frequented the predeceessor store, From the Vine, when it was under different ownership.
So, what's happened to the store and how is it today? It's easily still my favorite beer store in the area. The new owners have broadened the selection of beer and introduced cigars to its inventory. Wine is still very much a part of the store, as well. I'm not much of a wine or cigar guy though.
As far as beer goes, the selection is deep and impressive. If it's available for distribution in Ohio and it's craft, it's probably going to be here. They have a ton of great beer, and I never leave empty handed. If you're looking for Founders, Three Floyds, Bell's, Goose Island, Belgian specialties, or more local stuff like Columbus Brewing - it's all here. I even found the rare, local Seventh Son bottles here. Great stuff!
The new owners, Kevin and Starr, are top notch people! Michael is a great addition to the staff. They know their product and are very helpful, nice people.
Prices are state minimum and are in-line (if not a little better than) other shops around town. They don't gouge their customers.
I'm thrilled with Aficionado's! It's a great shop to have in town! Over the last year, they've made some positive changes to the store and have it thriving. If you're in town, it's definitely a place to check out.

This is a gem just minutes away from 71 and Polaris Pkwy. I'm a bit of a beer snob and was blown away at the selection and service they had. I love the fact that is locally owned and operated. The owner got me hooked on my new favorite beer, Simtra. Great selection, service & vibe. TRIFECTA!!!

Bigger does not mean better! Aficionado's is not the biggest store in Columbus, but it is one of the absolute best! Quality beer selection, wines and a nice cigar selection too! Kevin, Starr and Michael are all friendly, engaging, and willing to offer suggestions. If you have any special requests, they will reach out to their network and try to get you what you need. They are conveniently located on the north side of Columbus near Polaris. I love to stop in and see what is new and I always walk out with something I have not had before.
