Somehow I found my way into this place on a Saturday night only looking to use an ATM. As soon as I entered I could tell that their beer selection was vast. Though I didn't end up buying any beer that night, I have since made this place my sole craft beer buying locale. So far I haven't been to a store in the Cleveland area with a better selection. The service is great; I believe who I talked to was the owner, I could tell he was very knowledgeable about beer as well as everything that he had in stock. Probably the only negative for me is that though they do offer a build your own six-pack option, their single bottles are pretty limited, especially cold beer out of the freezer.

We absolutely love Simone's. They have a great selection. We always know they'll have what we want. We just bought four bottles of Take the Black Stout before it even went on sale in Ohio. The store is always packed. I do wish they had more staff so that you felt comfortable enough asking the staff for advice and information on beers.
We actually ordered our wedding favors from Simone's and they were great to work with 150 mini bottles of champagne!
By far better than other stores in lakewood that sell craft beer. We no longer go to Rozi's because Simone's selection is far better and although the staff isn't very help its not pretentious as Rozi's staff.

Great selection of craft beers wines and liquor, one of my favorite places to stop by and see what they've got in. Constant supply of great craft beers and always getting something new in. One of the only shops that I know of that sells singles so you don't have to buy the whole pack to try something new, which I really enjoy.
If you're in the area you should definitely check them out.

A great store. They usually are the first to get the rare releases. Huge selections of singles and bombers. If wine or liquor is your thing they have that as well. I shop all the beer stores in lakewood, I like to support all of them but this is the one I go to if I want something new. The only complaint I have is a bottle limit on certain rare releases, but I understand why they do it. All in all I dare you to show me a store with a better selection in lakewood or Cleveland.

Simone's is loaded with beer. There's an aisle for larger bottles, one for smaller bottles, two for 4 and 6 packs, and a row of coolers. You'll see all of the beers normally distributed to Cleveland here, as well as a few outliers you won't see elsewhere. The guy that runs the place is a big beer fan too, and does a great job pointing out some ones I may have missed.
Now Simone's only ramped up on its beer a few years ago, so if you haven't been for a while, you need to check it out again. This store simply has the best beer selection in Cleveland. The whiskey selection is good as well, about as good as Cleveland gets.
Detroit Avenue makes for a great Cleveland tour de beer these days. From west to east there are Simone's, Friendly Mini Mart, Ross Deli, Rozi's, Deagan's, Melt and EZ Shop, all with great selections.
