I used to go here when they first opened and up until they displaced much of the floor place for liquor. The selection was always pretty good, but it went downhill after the liquor was added.

A much superior store opened a quarter mile east across the street (with "3000" beers) so no need to go to Wines for You.

I added this place to Beer Advocate so I will try to represent it correctly with a thorough review.

Quality I was attracted to this place months ago due signs for Great Lakes Brewing Company and The Brew Keeper in the window. I had driven by this place several times before but, thinking that they only carried wine, did not stop in. So entering there is no doubt that wine is the focus at this place but just as quickly one notices a nice supply of craft and import beers. They are nicely presented in a basic kind of manner with shelved beers in the center and a cooler against the left wall after you enter the place. 3.0

Service Spoke with a very pleasant gentleman who discussed beer with me, admitted that he had not had most (if any) of the craft and import beers at his finger tips. I made a few recommendations and he graciously accepted, reporting that he is more of a "wine guy." That totally did not bother me. In fact, I was kind of jealous of him to be able to discover so much great beer in his future. 4.0

Selection OK. Belgian, German and English imports in a moderate collection were presented near American craft beers and there was a welcomed emphasis on local craft beers (Great Lakes and Brew Keeper are local, Cleveland brewers). There are maybe 150 beers represented. 3.5

Value $$ Rather standard price points, nothing special to report here.

Notes: A reasonable and unexpected site but its proximity to the Beer Advocate hot spot (Save On) in the area means that I am probably less likely to go here. It remains a nice place to shop for and possibly find a nice local favorite.
