Located in a more suburb part of Dayton, this is one of the best stores I've visited on my road trip to Ohio. The selection is flat out insane. There are endless rolls and rolls of 12oz's and bombers. I had to hold back myself on getting tens of more bottles due to my limited traveling budget.
Not much service, but the checkout is efficient and friendly.
I believe if any beer is distributed in Ohio, you'll find it in this store. If you are in the Dayton area, be sure to pay this amazing store a visit.

Great place in Dayton, OH...with a few negatives as well. Vibe has to take a hit, because it feels more like a gas station convenience store, but there is a lot of great beer here and a very good variety. Decent prices as well. However, you need to watch the bottle dates here. Some hoppy beers sit on the shelves way too long...otherwise I would probably have given it 4.75 for quality. Was able to pick up a lot of great local/regional beer, and you can get a good selection of wider US and international beers.

Wow. 10 minutes from my house. A bazillion singles. Plenty of everything. Home brewing needs next door. Bought my Oscar Blues Ten Fidy from here for the BA online tasting event. Awesome.

Really nice selection. This store is not in the greatest area of town, but not to where I felt unsafe. Staff wasnt very attentive but that not a huge negative for me. I like being left alone and wondering through the aisles like a kid in a candy shop. Prices were very fair. Must stop if your in the area.

Amazing selection!

The location is a little out of the way and the building is slightly run down. But, oh my goodness, what a craft beer selection! Great collection of Ohio and Midwestern beers; a huge section of Belgians, including many lambics; a German section; a British section; a California section... sweeping your eyes across the crowded rows of bottles from around the world is enough to throw a beer lover into sensory overload. The selections are not just the usual suspects, either; there are plenty of small breweries and obscure beers from well-known breweries. The prices are also amazing and I honestly don't know how they can keep them so low. For instance, I saw bottles from The Bruery that were cheaper than I can get them at home in Southern California.

I have traveled the world on business and seek out the best beer shops wherever I go--this is the best I've ever seen.

This might well be the best beer store in the state of Ohio. It's certainly on the short list of bottle shops here.

The location isn't anything special. Older, small retail store, in a decent, but not high end real estate.

So many beers. Locals, imports, belgian, german, danish...

The staff knows their beer. No small thing, and no small task in a place with this much selection.

Selection is awe inspiring.

Great place.

One of my favorite beer stores, period. If I'm anywhere close, I make sure to stop by. The staff is super helpful and knowledgeable. They have a great selection as well. Don't be fooled by the exterior - every possible space inside is taken up by shelves!

Even though it's a really cramped, cluttered store it's because they have a huge selection of craft, imports & meads available. Stopped in 2x in a week & both times I was approached by different workers asking me if I needed help. They also were fairly upfront & forward with info about what was "behind the counter" if you asked about a similar beer

I was shocked at the huge selection, especially on imports. The place is a tad cramped and has a slight cluttered feel but that's fine with me, it feels as if there's a hidden gem around every turn. I found some beers dating back as far as 4 years and some really old IPAs so they are slacking a bit there, but make up for it with good customer service. Chatted with a clerk for awhile and talked beer and got some suggestions and actually bought a preaged strong ale. Over all it's an awesome store with good employees and beer that's worth a trip to if your anywhere near.

I was recently in Dayton Ohio to attend a conference at Wright Patterson AFB.
Trying to find a decent beer place with Yelp, and this place popped up.

Whoah! This place is incredible. Every kind of beer, from exotic craft beers to imports - I literally spent two hours just walking around and taking it all in. It was like a library of beer, mind blowing!
The prices were reasonable, I bought a mix a six of beers and took them back to my hotel room, it actually made the trip worthwhile!

Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, and I have to admit that I look forward to returning to Ohio for future conferences, if for no other reason than to visit this incredible store.

If you're in the dayton ohio area, definitely worth the side trip - you will be amazed.

Love the selection. However on releases the limits are very strict. It's understandable being such a big supplier to the community but it is so well known it is hardly worth waiting in a line for a bomber or 2 - 12 oz. I would rather reach out to other stores that either hold or willing to part with more to make waiting worth my time. However this place has everything you need and more. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well.
