Stopped in here while I was visiting friends in the area.
From the outside it's not much to look at. Inside the beer is to the right. The selection here was great. A few Belgians, British, and Germans, some from Asia (Sapporo was one), as well as a large domestic micro selection. I had been wanting to try some stuff from the Great Lakes Brewery, and they had a few different ones in stock. Most of the stuff is warm on the shelves, but there is a cooler agains the back wall.
The best surprise for me was this. I collect glassware, and they also have a huge amount of all shape and size for sale. I collect The day I left this was the last place in town I stopped. I walked out with well over 10 pieces of glassware. I ended up spening almost as much on the pilsner glasses, mugs, pint glasses, and the like as I did on beer.
The guy behind the counter was very helpful as well. If I'm ever back in the Cleveland area, I'll make a point to stop in here again.

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.

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.

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.

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.
