Stopped by this place based on the reviews from this site. It is a greocery store that sits in the corner of a small shopping center.

The beer is located in the back of the store in a seperate room with the liquor. Once in the room, there is a wall of cold beer starting along the right hand side. The amount of cold beer they keep is nice. The rest of the beer is on shelves just by the coolers.

Quality was good. Did not see dust on the bottles or anything that would deter me from coming back. Service was good. Employees were willing to help out and came across as being educated on the beers they carry. Selection was better than I expected. Some of the breweries that made a showing: Bells, NorthCoast, Stoudts, Victory, Moylans, Avery, Stone, Brooklyn, and Great Lakes. To name a few. The import selection was not bad either. I noticed brews from Rochefort, Chimay, St. Bernardus, Coopers, Amarcord, Unibroue, Barons, and Castelain.

Pretty good establishment overall. What I walked out with:

Interesting layout. The wine section is part of the market itself, beer and spirits are in a separate section off the main market. Good selection of beer for the amount of space available. Singles section was not overwhelming by any means, but there seemed to be a lot of variety within it. The ratings are for the beer / spirits section only. The staff seemed very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable, and I found the atmosphere similar to that of a specialty b/w/s shop. The market itself is pretty cool with an upscale vibe and a decent wine selection, but quite pricey as others have noted. Well worth checking out if you aren't buying groceries.

Luckily, liquor prices are regulated by the state of Ohio, because this is the most expensive grocery store I have ever browsed in my life. All grocery items are literally 2.5 - 3X the normal prices. Absurd price gouging.

Beer, priced slightly on the high side, but I would say their selection and knowledgeable staff make it worth a stop. They do sell some singles, and always seem to atleast try to be hip with whatever the new limited release is that week.

Nice liquor selection. If you'd like a laugh while you're in the store, go ahead and check out their grocery prices.

Picked a store at random off the BA list. Glad I picked this one!

Great little grocery store with a massive selection of booze and beer. Tons and tons and tons of stuff. And a growler filling station too. I had already purchased a lot on this particular trip, so didn't need too much more. But being able to grab a growler of Bodhi was a real bonus. This is pretty much everything a beer store should be. Though as a ticker I wouldn't mind more singles. A very minor complaint in the overall scheme.

I was pleasantly surprised by the vast selection they had. Lot's of local brews to choose from. They also had a wide national and international selection.

Had a great conversation with one of the employees about local beer (since I'm from Indianapolis). He showed me all the local stuff and gave me some background on them. They were very helpful and let me pile up a ton of bottles at the register while I was browsing.
