I live about 30 seconds from this place but I refuse to go. I would much rather drive an extra 25 minutes to get to belmont. When you first walk in it's nothing but wine and liquor. The only reason I knew they had craft beer was because a buddy told me they had a good selection. When i saw this "good selection" I called my buddy and laughed. I have seen bars with a better bottle selection. Their store is cramped, and poorly laid out. The price was just the same or a even a dollar or two more than Belmont. Their selection consisted of only recognizable brew companies, no specialty beers, no lambic's, no strong ales, no barley wines. Had a few different stone brew's, founders, wild blue, a couple of importeds such as duval, and hobgoblin. Besides that it was all wine and liquor. A bigger location, with more room for other kinds of beers would make me re-think visiting but until then I'll keep going to where there is an actual selection.

I had passed this place up many times assuming it was a run-of-the-mill liquor store without much in the way of craft beer, and one visit I did make I missed the "specialty beer fridge" to the far back.
Boy, have I missed a gem. They have a walk-in cooler stocked with craft and import sixers, as well as a healthy selection of specialty bombers. Even more attractive were the prices...most of the sixers go for a buck or two more at other craft beer shops, and bombers which you'd expect to be expensive were very reasonable.
I did go on a Friday, when they have $2 beer tastings, and there seemed to be an enthusiastic group in the back. Unfortunately, the wife was waiting in the car, so I could not imbibe, but I will be back!

I used to avoid this place while I was in college (2004-2009), my parents thinking it had a terrific beer selection. After graduation, they continued their harping until I had to go there with one of them, for a purchase, I looked in the back and was flabbergasted at the new selection, this was 2009. After some discussion I found that the vast beer selection is the pet project of a passionate beer enthusiast who happened to get free reign of ordering. Take your time and get to know the beer director, he's very informed, passionate and being on the "in" with him will get you the very hard to find beer releases and allow you to single out almost any 6 pack you are weary about trying. The staff are all very knowledgeable not only with their spirits but in the pairing of these spirits with food. Take the time to visit the back of the store, which is dedicated to micro and craft breweries. Every Friday they have a beer tasting for a mere $2, allowing the participant to sample 4 beers.

First time visiting was today. The previous reviews are out of date.
Outside appearance makes it look like a small store. Once inside the first rows are liquor and the walls are lined mostly with wine. A macro beer sign on the back wall directs you to a cooler but don't bother- it's all macro's. Instead you need to head back and toward the right where you will find several shelves and a walk-in cooler dedicated to craft beer. All of the usuals are well represented as well as many rareties. Within a few minutes of browsing a knowledgeable and extremely helpful staff member asked if I needed assistance.
Definitely recommend stopping if you're in the area.

This is the second outlet for Miami Valley Wine and Spirits. The emphasis at this location is on the sale of liquor rather than wine and beer as at the Tipp City location. The demographics of the area indicate that that is the prime retail opportunity.
Though the emphasis here is not on beer the owner continues to make an effort to introduce better beer within his market areas. The slant here is a bit more toward macros with craft beers not quite as well represented. The six door front opening has no walkin; still the selection is not all that bad with the best of micro and imports being represented.
Good parking and service are still available here. I'm convinced the beer scene will improve with the owner's efforts to do so.
