Don't let the grocery store image fool you -- this is my favorite place to buy beer. All the DLM's have good selection, the one in Springboro in particular has a great selection (I'm reviewing just the beer, but the same would apply to their wine selection and staff as well). Lot's of Belgium's, Seasonals, etc, with a great selection from top brewers like Stone, Southern Tier, Rogue, Bell's, Dogfish Head, Unibroue, etc. Carry both 6 packs and in 22 oz "bombers". Very knowledgeable and helpful staff -- they'll special order something if they can. Be sure and check with the staff if there's something new you are looking for -- often they won't put limited release items on the shelf. Occasionally, they'll have special beer dinners or events, in addition the Friday beer / wine tasting typically features 2-3 new beer selections along with 6-7 wines.

I love DLM and shop here regularly. The food is on the pricy side, but the beer is very reasonable. They have a great Craft Beer selection as well as name brands. They also have a great selection of seasonal beers year round. There have been many occasions that I've walked in wanting to pick up a 12 pack of Heineken and walked out with a 6 pack of Heineken and a 4 or 6 pack of something I've never tried. For wine fans, they have a good selection and a wine bar. They occasionally have wine/beer/food tastings and events. I've never been to one but have heard great reviews.
If you're in the area and don't want to go to Arrow or Belmont Party Supply, this is a great place to check out.

This is a pretty upscale place in a pretty upscale part of town. The shopping center it is in has some nice shops to visit as well. Excellent selection on quality food and also craft beer.
The staff seems fairly knowledeable about beer, just be sure to find the right person. They are definitely helpful.
Selection is pretty good with a fair selection of Southern Tier, Stone, Moylands, Rogue. There's a healthy selection of bombers and a chilled selection of sixers.
I believe they sell at state minimum so the value seems reasonable. Worth a visit.

Very nice supermarket. It's a high-class place that values quality and service over "great deals" and as such it has a great selection (a pretty impressive wine selection and the best beer selection in town) and the staff is incredibly helpful. They employ a full-time alcohol expert whose sole job is to organize tastings and give every customer a complete work-over in whatever they want. If you have any question about any kind of alcohol, he can answer it and provide personal experience to back it up. The selection is definitely better than most shops around, since DLM focuses more on specialty products than on cheap brews, and they do actually have a decent pick of seasonal stuff (not everything, but a lot of it is there) as well as a whole rack of imports that you can't find anywhere but in a specialty shop. The price is about average, not cheap, not expensive, but honestly a good deal for the level of available service. My favorite place within half an hour of home.

I've only bought here on a few occasions because I go for singles as much as possible and there is a store, which sadly has new ownership and has seen the micro section reduced, where i can buy singles of just about anything. DLM though does have a wide selection of micro's and I head the pleasure of talking to the woman who does the ordering. She likes Weyerbacher and Avery among others. She also told me she likes to have rotation so the micros and the imports do change, but the aforementioned brews as well as Celebrator and GLBC and Rochefort are always there. Great Place to get most anything micro or foreign if you'll put the money down for a sixer. The one detractor for me is that the Stone and Rogue selections are very limited.

Like the other DLM locations, this store carries a great line of premier beers. Just to name a few - Westvleteren, Unibroue, Rochefort, Celebrator, all of the GLBC including Moondog, Rogues, Stones, Sierra Nevada, J. W. Lees, - my eyes were popping!. Though macros are also represented here, they are in the minority at DLM; most of the selection is from the non-macro side of the industry. As with the other locations, wines still rule here, but DLM has lots of quality craft and micro brews. Your likely to find a beer to fit the bill here. Quality beer in a quality market with decent service. Great cheeses and other goodies to go with your beer choice.
