This place doesn't look like much from the outside, but offers a quality selection on the inside. In the import section, to the left upon entering, they offer a solid selection of Belgian (four packs of Duvel not often found elsewhere), German, UK, Canada (Unibroue), and beers from around Europe and Asia. To the right of the main Import coolers is also a build your own six pack cooler, that features domesic mircros as well.

There is a macro brew section a little further right, but I bypassed that, and proceeded to the wall of coolers featruing a great selection of domestic craft brews: Rogue, Flying Dog, DFH, North Coast, Bells, and many others in varying formats, plenty of bombers, though they seem to focus on six packs. Without a doubt, one of the better selections of domestic microbrews in the city.

I can't really comment on the service, as I didn't ask for any assistance. But the gentleman at the cash register was friendly and complemented me on my selections ("you found some real gems"), which is always nice.

Until now, the shabby outside hid an amazing selection on the inside. Within the past year, they've vastly expanded the amount of cooler space and re-arranged things inside. Now they're working on the outside.

There's a great selection of craft beers from all over with a couple of cases dedicated to Columbus and other Ohio brews. The people know beer and, if you're looking for something new, they'll help with recommendations.

The Kenny Road Market also rents trucks (really), sell snacks, and have a selection of "adult" magazines (wink, wink). There's a pizza shop in the building and I'm told that it's pretty good, but I haven't tried it. Although it's mainly a beer store, you'll find some wines, too.

Fortunately, it's (almost) on my way home.

Nice place. Huge selection. Friendly staff.

If I could change ONE THING about this place, it would be their selection of singles. They have very few singles and make-your-own-six-pack available, making much of their "huge" selection nearly useless.

They will usually have what you are looking for (or something similar), however, if you are into trying all kinds of new beers that come out... (and who isn't?)... you cannot buy them individually here, which is my only knock on an otherwise outstanding store.

Neighborhood market, nothing special on the outside. But what a fantastic selection of craft beers! Many singles, domestic and import, lots of Ohio-brewed beers. Knowledgeable staff, and most of the patrons seemed to be craft aficionados. Pleasant shopping experience. I even found Sahti and Braggot there. 'Nuff said!

A hard to find place. Seemed somewhat dirty and scattered. The selection was very good and they emphasis craft beer though. I recommend, just don't mind the area.

Best convenience store selection in the area with plenty of craft beers, still outdone by the larger supermarkets in the area, however.

In January of 2015 I bought a 3 pack of Chimay and when I opened it at home I saw it was brewed in 2011 but the store refused to refund my money or to replace the beer.

It is a real low class looking place with a large domestic beer selection but apparently they are not interested in making sure that their stock is not outdated.

Stay away from them!

Decent selection of stuff, divided into aisles and coolers. Most beers are available both cold and on the shelf, which is nice. A bit dingy on the inside, doesn't look like much from the outside, either. The standard selection of Ohio brews and the beers one can get in Ohio. They seem to carry the good stuff behind the counter. I asked if they had any Three Floyds, they said they just ran out of Gumbalhead, but had Blakkr, which I happily bought along with a 6er of White Rajah. Good service and upselling, for sure. Prices were reasonable, middle of the road.
