I had to ask for this establishment to be added almost out of impulse. The Ohio beer laws changed last year, and Wild Oats swiftly rode those winds of change. They were so enthused about being allowed to have the higher alcohol beers that they were stocking Sierra's Bigfoot Ale before The Party Source in Newport KY did. Party Source is a megastore, they have everything. And they even have the Bigfoot - now.

Wild Oats is a natural foods marketplace for the average person. They have natural, healthy stuff that the typical person would actually enjoy eating. Patrons are not inundated with tofu recipes, alfalfa root salads and the like. Those things may be edible, perhaps even tasty, but WO focuses on quality. They have a lunch deli and lunch cost about 8 or 9 bucks. I thought it high until I tasted the sandwich. Awesome. The grocery store section has a limited selection of certain food groups, including beer. The impressive part here is that while they don't stock 100 beer selections, they also don't stock Millcoorweiser either. Everything is a premium beer and I ended up buying several 6-packs of things I had not seen before. Monster Ale 2003, the Bigfoot Ale, Brooklyn's Black Chocolate Stout for examples. I would have brought home 4 cases if I had the fridge room.

If you have a Wild Oats near you, check them out. They know they cannot compete with a 'Beer Store' per se, so they try to find some premium brands that aren't seen everywhere. Hats off to them.

Hey now.... this is a BIG Place! Only a small section dedicated to beer though.... but all premium beers here... Nice selection of Belgians, lots of off-beat domestic craft brews, and SINGLES TOO. no BMC.

Wild Oats is primarily a NATURAL FOOD STORE. You can even get fresh sushi! Very big and up-scale. Clean and efficient. Excellent place to stock up on your beer supply and still buy some healthy food too!

The staff is friendly and helpful. I guess a healthy lifestyle makes for a happy demeanor.

PROST!

Most of the beer is in a cold case. They have a very large selection of singles. The rest is located on shelves out of the sunlight. Large selection of microbrews and a nice selection of "common" Belgian and German beers. DFH, Founder's, Stones, Bell's, and the like. The staff will help you look for something if you ask, but they are not beer knowledgeable. Prices are fairly reasonable; some things are priced more competitively than others. Most singles are $1.95.
They have a larger selection of organic and gluten-free beers than most places. On this trip I did find Double Bastard.

If you're in the area or shopping for food, it is worth a look. Nice solid selections with an occasional super surprise find and the food stuffs are great. They definitely have some great items to pair with your beer load.

Wild Oats is primarily a natural organic foods sort of place for the mall set. The store has a lot of nice food selections to be had but we are here for the beer. The beer selection was pretty nice. There was no sign of BMC products to be found. The beer selections concentrated on the higher end beer products. There was plenty of Unibroue, Chimay and the like to be found. Dam near everything that was in the store was offered as a single bottle selection. Not the biggest and not the best supply of beer available; however, this store does have a nice selection of beer available. The staff on hand did not know jack about beer. I am willing to bet the person ordering the beer does know something about beer. Not a bad place to stop off for some beer if you are looking for Natural/ Organic foods.

Just a great stop in a very nice little shopping district. Beer is a small section of this natural and health food store, but what's there is good quality. Some very nice brews, some of which I've not seen elsewhere, like Moondog Ale from GLBC. Singles and sixers with no bulk packs or macros in sight. One could stock up for a BA reunion at this store with no problem.

The charm of this store is the fine quality of natural foods. Sushi supreme, lots of grains, nuts, dried fruit, and on, and on. Parking is adequate, but surely gets tight on weekends. The Pub is nearby.
