The only thing that keeps this place from getting all 5's is that it is actually a convenience store. That being said, this place kicks ass. A beer cave, 10 or 11 coolers, an entire aisle of craft beers and a very good selection of OH beers in floor stacks and on shelves. The beer manager? Was oustanding, very knowledgeable, personable and made several recommendations. Both he and the clerk behind the counter asked if there was anything I could not find, that they would try to order. Every time we go back to Lancaster, I will be stopping in.

This is my go to spot in Lancaster. They always carry Jackie O's, at times when I can't find the bottles anywhere in Columbus. Beyond that, I wouldn't say that they have extremely rare beers, but they always have a very solid selection, and it's worth a stop. By far the best place to get craft beer in Lancaster.

By far the best bottle shop in Lancaster. This place is a convenience store but several aisles and endcaps are devoted to craft beer. Only downsides are mix a six and limited bomber-sized offerings aren't extensive. However: fair amount of craft refrigeration space (wayy more than the BMC offerings), tons of Ohio produced and Ohio distro goodies and great prices. . Most importantly: the friendliest and most attentive beer manager I've ever encountered. Very knowledgeable, will special order anything he can get and will take your recommendations on what to to stock. Was ecstatic to see the entire Reingheist line and limited Jackie O's offerings.

Great overall selection, and FANTASTIC representation of all Ohio breweries. GO HERE IF YOU ARE IN THE AREA.

Finally a great place to buy craft beer in Lancaster. Friendly staff, an awesome selection and competitive prices make it a good place to shop for beer. Jay, the manager will go out of his way to help you get in that special request you are looking for. They should change their name to Ameristop Beer Mart.

Being from a smaller town , you wouldn't expect to see the 400+ craft beers that line the middle isle of this store, so when you walk it for the first time, it's like being a kid in a toy store. Founders, Left Hand, Ballast Point, the list goes on and on and if he doesn't have it, you can request it . Unlike some other places I have been, Jay and his staff are friendly and willing to go the extra mile so you can enjoy quality crafts here in your home town. I highly recommend swinging in and grabbing a growler or two and while you are there , sign up for Jays Beer Newsletter.... Just make sure you leave plenty of Founders for me!

This is the only place in Lancaster or surrounding areas to buy beer. Jay now stocks over 400 different beers and it's organized nicely with plenty of room to browse. He also will go out of his way to stock your favorite beer if he's not already carrying it.

Ameristop in Lancaster always had a few craft beers here and there through the years. Something happened and now there is an explosion of beer selection. Jay seems to have his head in the craft brew now. Bravo, I almost hate stopping by for something at lunch time because i know i'll find something i haven't tried and must have. LOL
