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.

amazing. A store the size of a krogers with nothing but alcohol wine and beer. I try to make a stop by this excellent store every time that I am in the cincinnati area. Over the years it is easy for me to say that I have definitely got my biggest and greatest scores from this place.

Stopped here on Saturday to pick up some goodies. Excellent choice.
The store is set up as a large warehouse, so don't expect much on atmosphere. Pretty self-explanatory there. The one beer guy I encountered, however, was very helpful. It was Memorial Day weekend, so saying that they were busy in an understatement.
The selection here is absolutely stellar. With designated sections of bombers, singles, and six packs (both cold and warm storage), there is no shortage of selection here. While you may not be able to find anything incredibly rare, most of the craft and import goodies in northern KY are to be found here. One thing that caught my eye was Barrel Aged Old Rasputin as well as plentiful amounts of Stone's IRS and Espresso IRS. There were a few outdated beers I ran across, but with a store of this size, that's in the peripherals - seems like they had a quick enough turnover rate to not have to worry about much stale beer anyway.
If I lived closer (currently live an hour away), I would absolutely come here regularly for the stellar selection and great prices. Absolutely worth checking out if you're in the northern KY/greater Cincinnati area.

Plenty of parking. When entering you past the demo kitchen, grocery and party section. Large wine and spirts section. in the corner BEER! This place has a bit of everything in its selection. Always rotating grower selections The cold mix and match display is a great way to try new brews, (have not come across a bigger one). Plenty of beers from all over the world. its easy to spend quite a lot of time and money walking around the aisles. its my primary craft beer shopping stop for good reason.
