There almost every week. If you need help finding anything or have a question about one of there products the staff is always there to help. One of the best if not the best selections in NE Ohio.

Great selection of U.S. beer. Phenomenal selection of foreign beers, particularly Belgian. New mix six section is solid. A little cramped when there are a few people in the store. Worth checking out if you're on the east side.

Great place with a massive selection of beer. They carry domestic and imports. They also have a big wine section and a decent cigar selection.

Most of the beer is sold in packs, though they did have a few singles out. As another review mentioned, check the dates. It seems like some of the beers get lost in their massive selection. One nice thing is that almost all the beer is kept in coolers. Look at the bottom of the coolers too, I found some hard to get beers sitting unnoticed.

When I was there (early 2014) they were in the process of re-organizing their beer. I believe it was being organized by state, then brewer. With common stuff (bud, miller, etc.) in a different area. The staff actually walked me through and showed me how it was organized which was nice.

They have a few rotating taps that usually have brews from big name craft breweries (e.g., southern tier). I believe only 4-5 taps, but worth checking out.

I had driven past this place dozens of times on my way to and from my girlfriend's place and we finally decided to stop in one day. He Dad had warned us that he didn't like the store too much but told us to check it out for ourselves... we found out why when we were there but I'll get to that later.

A: Good, the place is a bit dark and cramped but in a way it seems appropriate because the the store which also sells wine has the feel something like a wine/beer cellar.

Q: Everything which I have purchased from the store has been fresh and of good quality, so nothing to note here. Also to note, almost all beer is kept chilled.

S: This is where we found out why he did not like the store... service was good, but too good I guess. The workers WILL NOT LEAVE YOU ALONE to look at ANYTHING! Don't get me wrong they are very knowledgeable and helpful with any questions etc. but they will follow you around. This might not seem too bad having a personal shopping assistant in a way but when they just peer around the corner to watch you when the story is busy it seems a bit weird. This happened to everyone in the store to the point it was almost comical to walk around and look behind you.

S: Everything you could want within reasonable expectations for a store on the border of suburbia/rural Ohio is here.

V: Reasonable prices.

Overall: The store is good, the workers are knowledgeable but could use a bit of customer service training and maybe a beer to help them relax. Lastly, it is nice that almost all the beer is in coolers but this also makes it slightly awkward to keep opening the case to read bottles if you go in and are quite sure what you want.

In the end I'm sure I'll go back, but try to avoid the overbearing staff.

I feel that I must also note that I have recently relocated to the area after going to school in Rochester NY where I had access to Beers of the World in Henrietta just a few minutes from campus.

The Holy Grail of Beer and wine stores. Period. If they don't have it, they will do everything in their power to get it, and there is not much they don't have...Always spend more than intended, always there longer than I should, but will go out of my way to go. Well worth the trip. I can get bombers, specialty glassware, great selection of imports, and nice selection of micros, both popular and obscure. Like a kid in a candy store, only the adult beer loving kind of kid. And if wine and / or cigars are your thing as well, you will really enjoy this place. leave yourself PLENTY of time to look around...

I hit this place up alot last year, but for whatever reason stopped. Just recently hit it up again. This truly is a very underrated store, it's one of the best kept secrets in NE Ohio. First off, this place is HUGE. Lots of coolers for beer. Exceptional selection.. you can probably find anything that you can think of. Last year I saw KBS just chilling on the shelves like it was nothing, after its' release. Tons of bombers too. The place has a nice vibe to it as well, like I said it's huge. Service is friendly, but from my experiences, it seemed like no one was into craft beer, which is odd considering it's their main focus, along with wine. Pricing is reasonable, nothing ridiculous or out of the ordinary. I'm glad I came back, I'll definitely be back. This place is great! Make sure to check the dates on the beers, because unfortunately I've seen a few "older" beers. My only other complaint is that they lack singles.

If they had coolers of singles, this place probably couldn't be topped.

This place has a massive selection of 6-packs, bombers, and 750 ml bottles. As mentioned below, do check the dates. Due to the large number of customers it seems like for the most part the beer is fresh. Prices are quite reasonable, and there are even some bargains like the 6-pack of Kostritzer I found for $5.99. Wasn't out of date either. I was even surprised to find a better selection of some California breweries than I normally see at home in California. I didn't talk to the staff about beer in particular, so I can't comment on how well they know the product.

Now called Red, Wine, & Brew this store has been recently remodeled, providing more space for beer coolers. The selection is impressive, with 2000+ facings of beer. Many offerings in bombers, as well as the most variety of Belgians I have ever seen in one store. The service is attentive, friendly, and helpful, but do not appear to know much about beer. In fact, they are often trying to push out of date imported beer that they have on special that is certainly skunked.

The perennial concern over freshness is assuredly factor here, although they get a lot of business. If you know what you are looking for and how to check for freshness, this place has more good stuff in one place than I've seen locally.

I found this place on suggestion by my bro-in-law. By the front of the place, you would think that this was just one of those discount smoke shops where you'd pick up a carton of Jacks. After walking in, I was trully shocked to find a treasure trove.

First off, this place is dominated by wine. Isles and isles of wine. The beer is kept to the rear of the store.

Upon entering the store, I was immediately greeted by the store keep. He asked if I had been there before and he asked what I was interested in. I said no and beer. He then offered to take me on a tour. He proceeded to take me directly to the beer section of the store and gave me the grand tour.

During my trip which lasted nearly an hour and a half, he made several visits with me to make sure I didn't need any help. He also offered boxes to carry my beer. Service was an A++.

The selection was good. A lot of bombers and 750 ml bottles of the usual greats (too many to name but off the top of my head): Southern Tier, Troegs, Southampton, Avery, Rogue, Stone and numerous others.

They also had a huge selection of imports most of which I can't pronounce or spell. I'm sure there are bigger selections elsewhere, but for the beer newb like me, it seemed amazing!

I'll make several more visits... that's for sure. The store keep also threw in 2 12oz bottles for free (a Bells Oberon and a Rogue Mocha Porter). That isn't much, but I certainly appreciated the gesture. The only bad thing I'll say is to make sure you check dates. Of course I always check dates, and this seems to be an issue no matter what store you visit.
