As a college student in Cleveland, Warehouse Beverage supplied everything I needed for my self-directed study of craft beers. Not only did this store nurture my beer palate; its selection spoiled me.

Warehouse beverage doesn't look like much from the outside. In fact I'd passed by a number of times thinking that it was simply a bud-light beer hole. The inside is well organized and roughly split in half between wine and beer. There is some hard liquor but it doesn't take significant floor space. There's also a wall of homebrewing supplies.

Most of the beer is stored warm, although some local sixers and eclectic domestic and imported singles are also available cold. The domestic inventory offers a good selection of Micros from both coasts, Colorado, and the Midwest. Bells, Dogfishhead, Avery, Allagash, Pyramid, Rogue, Stone, etc.

The selection of imports is almost intimidating, and offers a nice selection of Belgian, British and German imports. Their selection isn't limited to those countries, and also includes a few beers from Asia and South America.

Certainly this is a store that is worth a visit for Cleveland area residents. The phone book says it's in Cleveland Proper, but I think it's really in South Euclid. Regardless, it's basically across the street from the Giant Eagle on Mayfield. (1,323 characters)

Great combination of both beer and home brew items, service has always been great, though I do wish they would have a greater selection of mixed six pack beers. Have a very wide selection of items I haven't seen anywhere else in NE Ohio, so its always fun to stop in and try something new. (289 characters)

After reading good things about this shop my wife and I made the trip yesterday and were pleasantly surprised. It is a small shop that has a lot to offer and a polite staff. We stocked up mainly on bombers...some were $1.00 cheaper than grocery stores and Lizardville,and a few were from breweries in Southern Ohio that it haven't seen at other shops in the Cleveland area. I'd definitely go here if I needed something for a bottle share.

If you are from out if town looking for Ohio beers I didn't see a lot from the popular Ohio breweries, but I was pleased with the selection from some newer breweries in southern Ohio. Will go back when I want to stock up again for the cellar and I recommend making the trip here for any Clevelander. (739 characters)

Great selection of beers. One of the best selections in the area. They carry most things that are distributed in the area. Lots of bombers.

They have few single bottles (1 rack in the back of the store) so if your looking to mix and match a sampler, look else where. Also, they charge a slight markup for single bottles.

The staff is pretty knowledgeable and friendly.

the only bad thing about this place is that it seems to be the go-to beer stop for a lot of people. That makes some rare beers very hard to come by and they usually limit you to 1-2 bottles a person. They don't do wait lists and don't hold for regulars, that makes it pretty straight forward. (667 characters)

A huge selection. They have tons of local stuff as well as beers from around the world. They also have a very helpful FB page. They post updates and pictures of their latest shipments. I have stopped in three times and had mixed results with the staff. On my first visit, the staff was very helpful and happy to chat beer with me. On the third visit, the guy seemed a bit annoyed and made a couple of perfunctory recommendations for me. Pretty disappointing. But overall, one of the best stores in Cleveland. (508 characters)

Warehouse Beverage is my go-to as I live in the area. Their stock is very respectable, and they cater to nearly every taste along both beer and wine spectrums. They also have a solid availability of beer-, wine-, and cheese-making (I think so, if I remember correctly) equipment. The owner(s) are committed to fairness by allowing as many people as possible access to their rare selections--e.g., Stone Enjoy By is limited to one per person, as well as other limitations. Overall, highly recommended.

Addendum: if you're concerned about the establishment carding you (I'll refrain from referencing anyone else's post, which may or may not be below mine), or that the owners/operators abstain from coddling you as soon as you enter the door, take that as confirmation that they (1) abide by the law (even for the high-rollers dropping a phat Benji for a Christmas party (living big!)) and (2) prefer not to pounce every patron who enters the door, prefering instead to allow the customers to take their time and leisurely peruse the selection available. After all, certainly a customer in need has the capacity to ask rudimentary questions. To concede: yes, Warehouse Beverage does not have door greeters, thankfully (they're not Wal-Mart). Your questions, I promise, will be met with an extensive wealth of knowledge and ample assistance. (1,339 characters)

My brother in law suggested Warehouse Beverage when I was trying to find Stone's limited release, Lukcy Basartd. I have been making nearly a weekly stop on my lunch brakes ever since.

The store has a wide variety of beers and wines, and odds are, if it is distributed in Ohio, you'll find it here. They also have a good selection for the home brewer, be it pre-packaged kits or individual ingredients. If they do not have the home brew necessities you’re looking for, they are quick to offer special order items (I’ve had a few yeast strains requested and received them quickly).

To get the most out of this store, like/follow them on Facebook (Warehouse Beverage, Inc.) or Twitter WarehouseBevInc. They have mastered the art of free advertising, and regularly update their followers with weekly shipments, usually riddled with hard to get seasonals, or limited edition releases.

Price wise, I have a similar shop closer to home; however, Warehouse Beverage typically comes in a bit cheaper depending on the selection, and seem to have a much friendlier staff. If you’re in the area, this is the place to buy. (1,118 characters)
