This place is in a little strip mall and it doesn't look like a beer mecca at all. As you walk inside there are two small tables to sit at with rows of wine behind them. Flanked by the wine is one wall of beer in coolers and one wall of warm beer. In the back is a small bar with 6 taps and a white board with the brews of the day. They were all craft beer and if I wasn't trying to beat a blizzard home I would have stayed for a beer or two.

The cooler has a good number of local 12 oz singles with more bombers and bigger bottles as you work your way down the cooler. They have a decent selection of Belgian beers and more on the not so common side that most places. The warm beer selection is just as strong with many of the same beers. They had a good selection from Stone, Alesmith, Souther Tier, Jolly Pumpkin, Bell's and many more. I only saw one Alesmith on the shelf so I asked the owner if they had others. They were so busy they hadn't put out the new ones so he got four other varieties of Alesmith out of the boxes for me.

This is a great place to find regional beers aswell as some gems from other countries.

In addition to their wine selection, Vintage has a large room to the left of the entrance with a wide variety of beers and styles to select from. Most of of these are on shelves in the center at room temperature, but at least some effort has been made to prevent too much sun exposure. It's quite cramped if more than one person is in an aisle at a time, and a bit warm and musty. The obvious or more popular beers are in coolers, allowing people to crack them open at the bar, or take them home cold.

The selection is perhaps a little too big as there are some large sections of older brews that have been around a while, and Boardman isn't exactly known for it's bustling craft beer scene, so some of these may continue to age on these shelves.

They also have two bars and an impressive array of taps on both sides with a lot of sought after fresh and new brews featured.

I have heard many great things about this place and was finally fortunate enough to experience it on a Sunday shortly after opening.

It is located in a strip mall. There was an outside patio to the left as I approached. I walked into a wine store. The beer store/bar was to the left. Once inside the beer room there were shelves and shelves of cold and room temperature beer. The bar in that room had twelve beers on tap. The next room over was a bar with twelve more beers.

The beers on tap were wide in style which was nice. I had a couple sours and IPA's. My girlfriend and I ordered some food from the wide array of flatbreads. It was served on brown paper on the bar.

The place was good, but after hearing so much hype about this place I was a little disappointed. I'll admit my expectations were too high. This is a very cool place.

I want to have my ashes spread here. This place is absolutely incredible. If you can't find something to suit your taste, you don't like beer.

Excellent place with an ample selection of the finest brews and wines. We love this place and return often. We like to get a sample flat of beer and she gets wine, we can try all kinds and find what we like best. The flat bread is awesome!

This spot was voted the best beer store in the world and I whole-heartedly agree! Phill is an extremely accessible owner and very knowledgeable. Everyone (owner, staff, and patrons) is so friendly and helpful. The selection is unbeatable. After visiting this establishment, I don't ever want to buy beer anywhere else. Thank you Vintage Estate and thank you Phill!
