This place is about a 45min or so drive for me, so ive been putting off going for awhile, but i finally decided to make the trip. I went on a saturday so the parking lot was pretty crowded, but the place is so big inside that it really doesnt matter.

First thing i noticed is the HUGE selection of liqours. If you are in search of a hard to find single malt or good tequila, this place would be a good choice.

After browsing the liqours, i finally found my way to the beer section. Its nicely layed out with all the craft brews against one wall. Everything is separated by region, so its pretty easy to find what your looking for. They had a decent selection of "mini kegs" as well, including Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier's, which ive only seen in bottles. The american micro section was pretty decent, but it was missing a few of the breweries which are easy to find around dayton, including founders, three floyds, clipper city etc. They did have an awsome selection from Blue Grass Brewing (BBC), which is a rare find in my area.

Now onto the real reason i went down, DFH WWS. Since the alcohol cap in ohio, this is the closest place to find the high abv beers. They has both WWS and 120min IPA, but i decided to only pick up the stout.

Prices were average to a little high on some items. The WWS was $8.50 a bottle, which is pretty reasonable, but i notices some of the other stuff was a dollar or two higher, and other stuff was a dollar lower, so overall ide say it averages out.

No one ever asked to help, but with a large place like that, i wasnt expecting anyone to. Overall its a really clean place with a good selection. Its defintely worth the stop for anyone in the area.

The Party Source is a fantastic store. Incredible beer department with a massive variety. They also have an onsite brewery and taproom (Ei8htBall Brewing). Huge liquor department and a walk-in cigar humidor as well. A must stop if you're in the area.

They bill themselves as something like "the biggest beverage store in America". I wouldn't doubt it! This place is truly massive. Their bourbon selection (we're in Kentucky after all) is enough to keep me perusing the aisles for hours. They also have a tasting bar where you can get pours of unique spirits ranging from rare bourbons to expensive mezcal varietals.

The beer selection is quite outrageous as well. I saw 16 different types of De Molen brews. SIXTEEN! Plus dozens of Mikkeller bottles and a section called "creme de la creme" that has rare stuff like Mikkeller Black Hole, Barrel Aged Black Weasel, Mikkeller George Calvados, De Molen Barrel Aged Hel & Verdoemenis and more.

Besides these goodies, Party Source has bombers and six packs from pretty much every major brewery in America. The beer guy is nice and helpful, and just past the retail store you'll find Eight Ball Brewing! Too much boozy fun, I'm telling you.
