I was on my way to somewhere for dinner this weekend when I was in Columbus, after I went to Palmer's to pick up a few things. I wrote this place down to be a stop, but my GPS did not have it, so I ended up not buying anything as I had already put down a nice chunk of change for beer that day, and had to put a stop to it haha.

Anyways on my drive to dinner, I passed right by this place, so I had to stop. Walked in and they were having a wine tasting in the back. I kept walking around looking for the beer, and in the corner of my eye I see there is a whole other room in the back where the beer was located.

Walked in and right in front of me was a solid selection of Nogne O bombers on the shelf. Walked around and saw one of the best selections of Jolly Pumpkin I have ever seen in any place I have been to, of course the prices for the 750's were a bit much for me, and having already spent over 80 that day, I had to decline myself. Also a nice selection of Alesmith, Bells, Founders, Stone, Anchor, Great Divide, Green Flash, Bear Republic, Stoudt's, and of course the obligatory Ohio stapes: Great Lakes, Hoppin Frog, Brew Kettle, Buckeye, and then the local Elevator, Columbus, and Rockmill(one I havent seen or heard of before). They had a Rockmill gift box which included all 4 beers in 750's. (I should probably pick that up when I go down to Cbus again)

Overall they had a great selection of bombers, and 4/6 packs, but very lacking in the singles department. Didint seem like the service was too knowledgeable, but I really didnt even try, since I was just browsing. I would probably go back just for the JP and the Rockmill gift pack, and a few others.

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.

Very wide selection of national, local, and international beers . Holds craft beer tastings and fills growlers.

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.
