This is an establishment that is a little off the beaten path. Even if luck is with you, passing it up is very easy. It looks like a run down convenience store on the outside and stopping at this place to get beer would have never entered my mind.

After reading about Kenny Road Market I thought I would give it a try. Once in the front door, just turn to the left and that is where the coolers start. Coolers stand side by side and go about half way around the store. First section of note is some imports. Selection is pretty good and includes: Birra Moretti, Paulaner, Wychwood, Weihenstephaner, Unibroue, etc...

Next is the singles section which is relatively small. The few times that I have been to the Market the singles selection rotates. Late November I was able to put together a six of nothing but Christmas beers. Feb. comes around and I could choose from year round brews. There is a price cap, so expensive beers do not get put in to this section.

Next is the micro section which I was impressed with. This is just what I remember seeing: Victory, Boulder, DFH, Harpoon, Stone, Bear Republic, Full Sail, Breckenridge, Left Hand, Rogue, Bells, etc... They have a selection of both six packs and bombers.

There is also beer that is not in coolers around the store but they seem to be extra stock of what is available in the coolers. Of course, this is some of what I was able to get: Hopslam, Expedition Stout, Stone Smoked Porter, Rogue Chocolate Stout, Yulesmith, etc...

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.
