The party source is a combination liquior, wine, beer and food store. The beer selection is why BA's would primarily be interested in this store. Although the store will be able to see many other needs. Now back to the beer. They of course have the usual suspects BMC. There is a very nice selection of imported beers. The selection of microbrews is pretty much concentrated in the heavy hitters Stones, Rogue ect. A nice selection of beers can be found as singles and bombers warm on the shelf. There is also a really good selection of cold beers in the beer cave. You can buy dam near anything in the store as a single beer. They have taps where you can buy growlers of beer. I havent used this service but it is available. Staff has been reasonably helpful but not particularly knowledgeable.

I thought the place was awesome. HUGE selection of everything under the sun. Sixers and four packs grouped by state, bigger bottles grouped by style. Tons of home brew supplies, plus a local brewery test room right there in the back of the store. I came out of there $250 lighter with stuff I was hauling back to my house that I can't get. Three Floyds, Dogfish Head, Brooklyn, Victory, Sixpoint, etc.

The biggest alcohol store in America, and holy crap is it easy to get lost in it. Impressive beer selection, and that applies to bottles, cold options, growler fills and kegs. Tough to find anything specific though, it comes it, it goes out, it sells out.

My favorite part about Party Source, besides the extensive selection is the mix-n-match six pack area in the beer cave. With several hundred bottles to choose from, it's the best around Cincinnati. Most bottles are priced $2–3, though you'll find some like Wells just a bit above that.

Amazing selection of beer wine and other spirits. Huge selection of beers from around the world. Also many beers on tap for tastings and to fill growlers. Knowledge of the staff is awesome. I feel fortunate to live in the are. I do not know of a similar store anywhere.

Great people work here. They love what they do and are very knowledgeable. Their beer selection is usually awesome however every now and again I'll go and will be a little disappointed . If you want to get other alcohol besides beer then you've come to the right place. Absolutely massive wine selection and their spirits variety is insane. Could do a little better with craft beer but killing it for the most part.

Recently moved into the neighborhood so The Party Source has become my new go-to location for most of my craft beer needs. This place is nothing short of huge, with large sections devoted to various categories of adult beverages. On the beer front, there is a large array of both domestic and imported offerings, with lots of shelf space for local stuff, all the typical singles, four/six packs, bombers, etc. They also offer home brewing products, a generous selection of glassware and even a rack of shirts/hoodies. The staff have a "best of the best" rack according to their particular preferences, right next to the tap room that offers their own in-house brews. During the summer months you can enjoy a beverage outdoors on the patio and take in some live music.

Surprisingly, even though this place has a honkin' huge beer selection, I noticed some notable absences from the shelf when I was there last night -- nothing from Mad River or Great Divide, for example, were two that leaped out at me, because I was hoping to find some John Barleycorns or Yeti. No worries, there's another beer mega-store about 10 miles away in Florence that I can check out for those.

Party Source provides a beer bar, liquor tasting, and wine tasting. They get everything and are the BIG sellers in the game.

Sadly they want to ask you to join a 200 dollar a year subscription service to get access to the best beers. Their staff ranges from really great and helpful to honestly just jerks. The higher up the worse they can be. Honestly since they've start offering all these really cool services they've gotten worse and worse to work with to get even relatively limited beers.

If you're just looking for a large selection and good quality. They're well priced and provide good options. If you want bourbon county stout, just go elsewhere, they won't even be honest with you. They'll just tell you they didn't get any.

All that said walls of sours, great imports, and stacks of cases of limited things such as founders harvest. A true asset to the community.

After years hearing about The Party Source, I finally found some time to make the drive to Kentucky. Here are some of the longest beer and liquor aisles you will ever see! A really good selection of locals. An amazing international selection. I didn't see any hot new limited releases on the shelves, and I didn't ask "what do you have in the back." I guess I was hoping to see more hard-to-find beers than one might find in other stores in the tri-state area. I think they probably sell out pretty quickly since they have such a big draw. Easy to get to and easy parking. If you're driving through on I-75 or I-71, plan on taking a nice long stop at The Party Source.
