My final stop during my Cleveland beer trip. Located a few miles east of the city proper, The service and quality make this place worth the short drive.

You enter in the middle of the building and the store expands to the left and right. The left seems to be where the wine lives and the beer takes up most of the right hand side. The first thing I noticed that that everything is orderly and clean! Big bonus right there! They have a ton of sixers and bombers to choose from. Everything is represented well...locals, domestic craft and imports.

The service was great. I ended up talking to the guy behind the counter for quite a while...super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

I can see this place being a must stop for the local BAs. The only thing holding the score down is the lack of mix and match singles. (818 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)
