I used to always go to Jungle Jim's down in Cincinnati for beer and then I discovered this place. It has the best selection of beer in the Dayton area and I would say that it just about beats Jungle Jim's too in overall selection. They continue to expand their selection and have now added a store next door for the home brewer. Not only do they have a large selection of 6 and 4 packs, but they also have huge sections of single bottles by country, special release and size (seasonals and 22oz/500ml/750ml bottles). I often pick and choose so I can try things out before I get a six pack. So selection is definitely exceptional.
Quality - Every now and then I find a beer a bit past its date, but it's rare. Other than this though, everything is the store is the good stuff.
Service truly is exceptional - they'll go out of their way to give me a box if I'm picking up a motley collection of single bottles, and if a single isn't on the shelf they'll let me grab a single from one of they packs on display if I want to try something out.
I can't recommend this place enough - truly amazing for such a hole in the wall place.

I was recently in Dayton Ohio to attend a conference at Wright Patterson AFB.
Trying to find a decent beer place with Yelp, and this place popped up.

Whoah! This place is incredible. Every kind of beer, from exotic craft beers to imports - I literally spent two hours just walking around and taking it all in. It was like a library of beer, mind blowing!
The prices were reasonable, I bought a mix a six of beers and took them back to my hotel room, it actually made the trip worthwhile!

Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, and I have to admit that I look forward to returning to Ohio for future conferences, if for no other reason than to visit this incredible store.

If you're in the dayton ohio area, definitely worth the side trip - you will be amazed.

Drove over from Indiana after reading about this place. Excellent selection of local and out of state craft beer. Huge selection of singles. Wasn't busy when I was there but would be very hard to get around as the aisles were narrow. Staff was friendly. Will definitely make the trip back again!

BPS is the best in the Dayton area.

They've got an extensive craft selection that is constantly rotating.

Many of these are local or Ohio-based beers.

Prices are reasonable with many bottles for $2-3 each allowing you to build your own mix-n-match six pack for only a little more than the cost of a pre made six pack from any other store.

I wish I lived closer to this place so I could make it my regular bottle store. This week's FFF shipment sold out in an hour, and that was with a one-per-customer limit. Broad selection of beer styles that I've seen outdone by only Jungle Jim's, and they have 20 times the space. Picked up one of my all-time favorites, the barrel-aged Scotch De Silly, which they still have a few, and it was less expensive than the last place I found one. Inventory seems to turn pretty well, and they put stuff they want to clear out on sale.

Another great thing about this store (and it's companion homebrew supply store next door, Brewtensils) is that the owner, Mike Schwartz, has been a legend in Dayton's craft beer and homebrewing scene for ages - long before there even was a scene. If anyone appreciates the value of keeping the inventory fresh, it's him.

They have an entire row devoted to single bottles at reasonable prices, although they'll be a bit more than 1/6 of a sixer. Service to locate something was offered without being hovering. My only complaint would be the check-out dude who recommended the local tavern around the corner because they had a great tap selection, and it turned out to be Bell's Two Hearted, a Great Divide winter warmer, and the usual BMC crowd. They did have two of their 12 taps devoted to Yuengling brews, so maybe that was it.

As others have said, if you get anywhere near this store, you really owe it to your craft jones to spend some time checking it out, as well as its homebrew brother next door.
