Stopped into this store last week and was quite impressed. Its a smaller store and everything seems to be shoved into wherever they can find room for it. I am a big fan of shopping for make your own six pack beers and they have a great selection. The other thing that makes this a really cool place is that they just stock all the beer down the aisle and you can grab a single from any of them or grab a sixer if you want one. Walked out with a six around 14 bucks which I thought was reasonable compared to everywhere else I have been. Stop in if you haven't been you'll be glad you did.

This is among my favorite beer-shopping haunts in the Cincinnati Metro area. It's not particularly much to look at, just a somewhat cramped bottle shop that sells a little of everything in the way of spirits, but their craft beer selection is definitely well above average.
Their selection of imports is excellent, especially Belgians and British selections, but they also carry a pretty good range of German stuff. Their range of American craft brews is pretty solid, at least as far as the major breweries, but of course they have the same limitations as anyone else in terms of ability to get regional stuff. For example, Three Floyds Brewing Co. is situated just one state over, but it's very hard to get their beers here in southwest Ohio. Pop across the state line to Aurora, Indiana and a veritable cornucopia of Three Floyds awaits you at a place like the Pour House. Such are the vagaries of brewers' distribution networks.
Probably my favorite feature of Hyde Park Wine & Spirits is their total openness to allowing us to cherry-pick singles from four and six-packs to sample before buying larger quantities. The only downside, but an understandable one, is that per-bottle prices tend to be a little higher on such purchases, so if you put together a mixed six of singles you can expect to pay a bit more overall, but not a huge amount. Overall a great beer shop in my neck of the woods.

Its a little cramped but considering they have a very nice selection it works just fine. In fact it makes it more interesting to shop . Right past the cash registers they have a nice selection of the newest beers in the store. Staff is friendly and helpful. Selection is good, and its nice you can purchase an individual bottle or can out of any four or six pack. Its my go to store, I consistently find something new to try, and always have my old favorites.

Good alternative place to stop on the way up north now that Liquor Barn is off my list.
There was not much room to the beer section, but they totally filled the space they had with solid stuff.
Being from TN, it was really nice to see Jolly Pumpkin 750s of most of their offerings.
I also was able to buy some 12oz beers I have wanted to try but not put down the $$ for a 6 pack.
I did not see anything super rare, but I really was not looking for shelf walez this time.
I will be stopping here and or at Palmer's from now on. ( I need to rate Palmers, should have done that a long time ago. )

Finding beer in Cincinnati is a pain. I wanted to try this place last year when we went to our convention, but we didn't have a car. I had one this year and it is about 6 miles north of downtown. One of those State owned deals, they had a pretty good selection of Mid West beers and a ton of CA beers too! They let you mix and match 12 oz beers and that is key if you want to review a whole bunch of different beers. I wish they had more rare stuff but they served a great purpose. I will probably be going to them again next year when I am in town.

Hyde Park Wine & Spirits is a hit with us because they allow make-your-own 6'ers. Not a lot of places in our area allow for this and with their selection this makes for a great place to go for a variety pack. Especially for people like us who rarely finish a 6 pack before buying something new.
HPW&S doesnt always have many limited releases but its a safe bet that you will find Founders, Bells, Dogfish, and some of the other great breweries.
This is a liquor store as much as anything else and where its located expect to see a mixed crowd when you go. This is really why I nicked it a bit on the vibe.The beer is all on the left front side of the store and only a couple of the employees are pretty knowledgeable about what they offer and whats good (beerwise).
Oh and while you are there... swing by next door and get some of the best fried chicken in the city from Hitching Post!

One full aisle of beer does not seem like much but it is when they pack them in! It never seems to be too crowded which is good when you want to take your time and really browse. Sometimes it feels like your finding Waldo as you walk down the narrow aisle but take your time and you'll find what you need. If you need a hand the friendly staff are good at helping, but some deffinitely know more about beers then the others. I've gone digging here a couple of times with some success at finding some vintage brews.
Great selection of local, national and international beers as well!

A very very full single beer aisle in a store mostly dedicated to liquor and wine. Despite only having one aisle of beer it is PACKED! So much to choose from. Every brewery available in Ohio is there and almost always in stock. They always get plenty of the new releases and tough to find beers. Fairly high traffic so things don't stick around long but for the right person sometimes things can be held in the back. Occasionally vintage stuff will be pulled out of their cellar and make its way onto the shelves for a reasonable price as well which is nice

Finally visited this store not really knowing what to expect the beer section is not like others Im used to six packs and singles scattered across the floor with a policy of being able to pick in choose from different 6/4 packs. I found some great beers that are not made anymore and was able to finally try an Achel. Over all a very impressive selection several imports craft beers and microbrews, but it is pretty pricey i spent 37 on a six pack mind you one of them was 10 dollars . I will definitely go back. I would suggest any beer geek tp check this place out.

In Nati visting a friend and of course I look up the top place, thankfully and awesomely it was 2 miles from this house. I came in not expecting much because its Cincy but I came away shockingly surprised. They have two rows of beer, at least a hundred choices. American craft is well represented especially the midwest, tons of bells, troets, weyerbacher. International is ok, nothing special, the staples but nothing crazy. You can select singles out of all 6 packs which is awesome. I found 2007 pannepot for 6 bucks a bottle. Service was nice and the prices were the best. Everything was at least 20% below what is in Chicago. A must stop for beer when in Cincinnati.
