Never been inside here, this review is strictly based on a web order. Believer or not, my friend and I actually drove by the front of store 3 years ago while staying in Cincinnati. But it's beyond me why I did not stop by then.
Lots of beer that I cannot get in California. There are a bunch of singles to choose from (Schlafly, Christian-Moerlein, Founder's, Bell's, Two Brothers, Summit). There are numerous bombers to choose from too. Too bad lots of stuff are out-of-stock, probably due to the high turnover rates.
Service is simply impeccable. The beer guy (Danny) called me on what's out and recommended stuff available. I even got to buy some stuff not listed on the website. Packaging is immaculate, I could have sworn the bottles won't break if dropped from a second-story height.
Shipping is Fedex, pretty much in line with other sites cost-wise. Overall a great experience. Great communications (essential for web orders) and selections.

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.
