I love this place, nice little bottle shop right in the middle of the Oregon district. It's got a cool atmospere with the old style wood floors, the old glass case deli fridge (the ones they would should meat off in) has more beer in their, Very clever. They have an outstanding variety of high quality beer. Including St. Bernadus, Bell's, Founder's, The Bruery, Stone, and many more. Their beer price is about the same as it is everywhere else around here. The sandwiches are delicious. One of the best Ruebens I've ever had, and is very inexpensive. Only thing I don't like is that you cant drink your beer while you eat your sandwich in the store. So I usually just take it home to enjoy them together. If your ever in Dayton I highly suggest stopping in. if not for a beer at least get a sandwich.

Sandwhich shop that has an excellent - carryout only - beer and wine selection. The foodies are simply fantastic, and while the beer selection might not be the most amazing in the area (go to Belmont Party Supply if you need options) they're certainly the best downtown.

Their prices are a little higher on both food (VERY high quality) and beer ($1 more/bomber than I pay elsewhere) but it's certainly worth checking out if you're nearby.

Another place within walking distance if you want to drink a good craft beer with your lunch is the Trolley Stop.

This was my go-to sandwich shop for awhile. They have some of the most delicious sandwiches made-to-order! If you get a large sandwich, it's going to be a HEAPING pile of meat on some amazing artisan bread. As I write this, my mouth is watering - their sandwiches are seriously to-die-for. If you want to grab an amazing sandwich on the go (or sit down at one of their tables), this is a MUST-stop location in the famous Oregon District in Dayton, Ohio.

They also have an incredible beer and wine selection for you to take home. Unfortunately, you can't drink while you enjoy your delicious sandwich (and trust me, you WILL enjoy it!), but you can grab a 6-pack or a single (or two, or three...) of some incredible craft beer - easily the best selection in the downtown Dayton area. They also have a small grocery area in case you need some toothpaste, shampoo, cat food, etc etc (which is hard to find in downtown Dayton).

They do beer tastings every month, and a lot of the highly-rated beers will have a brief description as well as a rating from none other than beeradvocate.com! In fact, this place was one of the reasons I joined Beer Advocate!

It's a great place to keep in mind. The Oregon District is full of bars/pubs which can become overwhelming - but don't sleep on 5th St. Wine and Deli. This place is an awesome place to grab a quick sandwich and six pack on your lunch break, or if you are driving through downtown Dayton, Ohio. It's the best place in the downtown area to get some AMAZING craft beer, as well as an amazing meal.

A really relaxed place to get an amazing meal as well as some deli meats and (most importantly) some great craft beer to take home.

A little hard to find on 5th Street and very few parking opportunities. A very nice part of town despite the mega bumpy brick street.
Usually only 1-2 people working. Nice people but it seems to take a while to get their attention. They don't seem to keep track of whether you've paid for your food or not. Kinda the "honor system" thing.
Great sandwiches. This is going to be my regular Tuesday, Thursday lunch place. Crispy, fresh bread with great quality meats and cheeses. Beer selection is wide, Weyerbacher, Victory, Great Lakes, Stone, ST, most of which are available at other retailers.
Beer is NOT at State minimum. Seems they run $1.50 over on bombers and $1.00 on 6ers. Definitely worth the trip for the food but not the beer. Hit Belmont and save a bundle.

A nice deli in Dayton's Oregon District which has very tasty sandwiches on homemade(?) bread, and an excellent beer & wine selection.
There are 4-5 coolers with six-packs, and two more filled with bombers and 750ml bottles. In addition, there is a bit more shelf space with some assorted bottles, sixers, and specialty 12-packs.
I'd estimate about 80% of what they offer are American crafts. The remainder would be Belgian & British; so what they have for imports is nice, but a wider selection could be found elsewhere. My search for fresh German beer in this area continues.
Prices were reasonable; you won't find any deals here, but given the rents they likely pay for the area, not bad either.

What can I say, I love this place.

They went through Hell with the city trying to get their to-go liquor license. The city of Dayton didn't want to give it to them because there's 15 bars in the Oregon District on fifth st. But there's nobody on the street that has the fine brews this place carries, not a huge selection, but they maximize the space with quality.

They specialize in craft and imported beer, not a Budwiser in sight. Selection always changes and they carry quite a bit of good seasonals. While your in the store for a tasty brew, get a sandwich, ALL of them are amazing. On Saturday's they have themed tastings at the outside bar, they've done Sake, always have wines and during Halloween had a scary named beer tasting including Nosfuratu, Arrogant Bastard, Hobgoblin, Scarecrow and Gonzo Imperial stout.

There's nowhere better to get good beer downtown, even if you do have to take it with you.
