Like the name implies this is a wine store. It appears to cater to the high-brow crowd.

The store is clean and dimly lit. Which would be nice for a wine tasting. It is very clean and neat.

They don't have many beers but what they do have is of high quality. Mostly craft beers with some Belgians also.

Their prices are a bit high. Their six packs were one to three dollars more than other places that Ive been. I work too hard for my money to shop here. There is a Heinen's not far from here with a better selection, and better prices.

I stopped by the Wine Room to grab some 6ers and really just to check out the place since I had read about it on BA.

The beer cooler is in the back right corner of the store. All beers are refrigerated. It's not a huge selection by any means, but what they do have is good. Just one bottom row of a single cooler is dedicated to BMC, and everything else is either import or craft. Some notables were Aventinus, Celebrator, Duvel, Chimay, and beers from Hoppin' Frog (including bombers of BORIS), Founders (including Double Trouble), Great Lakes, Bell's, Southern Tier, Ithaca, and Jolly Pumpkin. It was hard to make decisions! The prices seemed lower than the bottle shop here in town. They won't break up packs, but at 8 or 9.99, it seems reasonable for me to buy 6ers! The shop is very wine centered (couldn't you guess from the title?), but someone at least asked if I was looking for something in particular. And the woman checking me out made a note about each 6er I purchased, one being "this beer is supposed to be really hoppy!" and the other being "we just got this one in". It's nice to have wine people know about the beer they're serving.

I haven't seen anywhere else that has BORIS, so I'll definitely be going back, but I'd still like to find a place around here that will break up packs so that I can buy singles!

This is a great new place that just opened up in that new plaza across from Wal-Mart. On the outside it looks a little small, but on the inside there is plenty of room. It's a very clean store with 1,200 different wines, some premium cigars, cheese, and over 200 different types of beer. They keep some of the beer at room temp on wine racks and quite a few of them in refrigerators. Right beside the fridge they have six packs where you can take a single out that's individually priced, just in case you want try it before you buy a 4 or 6 pack. If you do make a six pack out of their singles, they'll give you 10% off that six pack.

I found the staff very helpful and knowledgeable of the beer they sold. On their website they said they can help you pair your beer with some of the chesse they sold there. When I asked if they had a certain beer, they said no, but they'll will order some for me. The best part is, they actually did order some in and it wasn't just talk. Excellet service!

I thought their selection there was excellent. Not only did they have Ohio beers, like Great Lakes, Thristy Dog, and Buckeye Brewing Co., they also had plenty of American micros, imports, and even Belgian beers. The American beers consisted of Brooklyn, Victory, Bell's, Founders, 3 Floyds, Ommegang, Ale Smith, Stone,Rogue, Dominion, Flying Dog, Dogfish Head, Great Divide, and more that I can't remember right now. The imports consisted of Fuller's, Unibroue, Aventinus, Ridgeway, Monchshof, J.W. Lee's, and plenty more of high quality. I thought that their Belgian selection was very good that consisted of Saison Dupont, DeuS, Kwak, La Chouffe, Delirium, Liefman's, Achel, Chimay, and lots more that I couldn't read or even pronounce.

The prices here were reasonable on some and some that I thought were a bit pricy. I put reasonable because more I thought were reasonable than pricy.

This has to be one of the best selections in Lorain County and even some places in Cuyahoga county. And better yet it's easy to find because it's right off I-90. If your in the area and looking for some fine Belgian and American beers, then stop on in, you won't be disappointed. And better yet, every Friday or Saturday they do beer tastings.
