Beer selection was really quite small compared to its size. They do have a huge beer cave, but its mostly stocked with macros. Staff was no where to be found while I was looking, which was a good thing. However if I needed help I would have to gone to the front registers. This was recommended to me by a friend and I think I might need better friends.

Very good selection. I have learned from experience in shopping at the Centerville location that they actually do get the special releases, and seasonals. But as you can imagine, they go fast. So if you do not get there at the right time, you will miss out. Very impressed with the knowledgeable and helpful staff. They also offer a nice selection of cigars, as well as wine and liquor. Even have a nice deli area with specialty spreads and dips among other items. I would highly recommend stopping in this location.

Reviewing the store in Centerville. Mainly a wine and liquor store, but they have a good, but not great beer selection. Normally have main beers from the main brewers but they seldom get limited edition or special offerings from the breweries. Also have some gourmet deli type food (cheese, crackers, etc.) if your hosting a party & need some quick snacks. The best part of the place however, is the beer tasting events, every Friday from 5-7. Normally have 5 or so craft beers at a nominal fee, great opportunity to taste new offerings or the latest seaonals.

I'm reviewing the location in Oakwood (owned by the same people) rather than the Centerville/Miami Township location.

While predominantly a wine and liquor store, it does have a reasonably good beer selection. Slightly more imports than domestic/craft beer, but you could argue that once you factor in the large walk-in fridge that domestics far outnumber imports.

Prices are reasonable, and you're making a combined trip for other things, certainly you can pick up some quality brew here. Plus there is a nice gourmet food section including fresh spreads and cheeses worth combining for your beer drinking experience.

The only drawback to the place is that the beer selection at times seems like an afterthought amongst the much larger selection of wines and liquor throughout the place. Still, not a bad place and worthwhile for a combined trip of food and drink.

Went here yesterday for a wine tasting. Decided to cruise thru the beer section to see if they happen to have and Kentucky Breakfast or Goose Island Bourbon County Stout. They had neither although they did have a nice selection of both micro and imported beer. They had bombers of the Stone, 3 Floyd including Dreadnaught, New Holland, Avery and so on. Good packages of Founders, Bell's,
Great Lakes, etc.

It did look as if they weren't much on getting seasonal's; at least in packages because there shelf space was already spoken for. They did however carry some seasonals in the singles.

Overall a pretty good selection of beer priced at state. A decent wine selection also. But one thing I will say is that the wine snobbery prevails at this location as well as the other Arrow wines I've visited.

This store is a combination liquior, wine and beer store. The liquior and wine present will definately meet most peoples needs or wants. On to the beer. There was a nice selection of singles in the warm portion of the shelf. Nothing really to jump up and do hand springs over but nice. There was several six packs founders, bells, avery, dog fish head. The majority of the beer was in the cold case. I know some folks like there beer cold at the store. I personally prefer to buy six packs warm. There was the usual suspects in the store BMC and the like. There was also a very good selection of craft and import beer present in the cooler. The staff attempted to offer sugestions. I didnt buy anything as I could easily get everything in the store around my home area. I was just hoping to find some other things. Again this is not a bad store.

Very large store that has much more space for wine, but the beer space is adequate. They have a very large organized walk-in cooler with many, many selections. Out in the store they have a small shelf space, where you can find some bombers and a few singles, although I wish their singles selection was greater. As far as selection, it was pretty typical. Not the selection that Belmont Party Supply has, but still a good one. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. This is a good stop if you are in the south end of Dayton, near the Dayton Mall.

This is the newer of the Dayton area Arrow Wine and Spirits stores and as such it provides additional space and services not possible in the older, and smaller, original store. This store has a large, roomy, and well organized walk-in beer cooler where most of the beers are arranged by region and country. As always, patrons may break packs and create their owner selections of singles. Walk-in humidor room for cigar patrons. Moderate prices, good service, and knowledgeable staff make this store a winner.
