Easy to find- right on the main drag -brightly lit on the corner with decent parking. A good selection of wines, and the Liquors are vast and varied. They even have a few Meads.

Some of the beer is on the back wall of the store in door freezers. The rest is on dry shelving just behind that. The previous beerfly reviews for this place say it doesn't have much beer to choose from-mabye some of the other reviewers didn't see these other shelves- I noticed a lot of shelf talkers and signs reading "Finally here! or "Now in stock!"-so mabye they have recently expanded?

Loads of rare imports from small countires, requeset Belgian offerings, many well-known and sought-after domestics, Trappist ales, not to mention local breweries Hoppin' Frog, Buckeye Brewing Co., and of course Great Lakes. Stock appears fresh and well-maintained- except for one shelf in the back corner with several broken bottles and trash on it.

Employees seemed verey freindly ans accomadating- they will help you find something- if you can tear them away from the T.V.

Prices were about average, and I saw some seasonals marked down, no doubt to liquidate excess stock. If you live in Lakewood, you should feel pretty good about your choices of where to buy craft beer. Mabye it's not my first choice, but I am most likey to stop here because they keep much better hours than Rozi's.

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.
