    I don't know the law in detail, but beer is sold on Sundays and you should have no problem picking some up.

    If you mean take-out, it depends on where you are in Ohio. In many small towns you'll be stuck with grocery & convenience stores on Sunday.

    Some towns are dry period. Belpre, OH, south of Marietta, last year allowed beer sales for the first time since prohibition - at 2 convenience stores. It's a town gone wild!

    I guess it depends on what part of Ohio you're in then. Here in NE Ohio, it's pretty easy and most beer stores are open on Sunday.

    It used to be that you couldn't buy beer or wine until noon on Sunday. Not sure if thats still the case.

    Yea Simone's in lakewood has a pretty nice and large selection of 6/4 packs, bombers, and single 12oz bottles.

    Simone's is pretty good and Ross Deli just down the street is good, too.

    In the Cleveland area the saying goes 'beer is great after 8 and wine is fine after 9'

    At least in most places (if they are open yet)

    there is really no ONE answer to this question. the only clear-cut state-wide rule is :
    No retail alcohol sales between 1a-5:30a 7days a week state wide(last call around 2:30aIIRC)
    Otherwise it Varies by locality, county, township, even liquor license.
    ex: I live in Lima. Growing up, there were no alcohol sales on Sunday. PERIOD. they even had to cover the beer/liquor cases/aisles in some stores.
    forward to '98, when i got out of HS, and started working @ a grocery store. beer is fine on sunday, after 5:30a, nothing else.
    in '02 i moved to Columbus, (nw side, in between UA & Dublin) the Sunday law there was beer after 5:30a, wine/liquor after 9:30a
    '05 moved back to Lima, and the law up here now(at least for my township) is beer ok after 5:30a, wine/liquor after 10:30a.
    any changes have to be put on the ballot and approved by the voters @ the next election.

    as for the varies by license:
    The Local Buffalo wild wings location had an initiative on the ballot last time around to allow them Sunday Liquor sales, got turned down. (same township as my groc. where i can buy booze @ 10:30am)
