Best selection of craft beer in the area. Have been here numerous times, and usually leave much poorer than when I entered. The layout is easy to navigate, and the employees are friendly and helpful.

Homey store with creaky wooden floors that can be a little entertaining side distraction at times. Beyond and behind the front of house wine selection, the store likes to show off their craft beer chops with mega whales slayed on top of the shelves. There are some surprising finds in here if you're looking closely, like a Jester King collab I didn't know was anywhere in Ohio. Plus there are tons of singles available you might have trouble finding elsewhere, and plenty of the usual suspects. Only knock is the warmth and brightness--I wonder if there's a better way they can store their selection.

This is my go to shop even though is it farther from my house than other shops. They always have a solid tap selection to have a beer shop or fill a growler to go. The selection is about as good as it gets. Prices are fair and they don't mark up bottles. Lots of single bottles available for purchase. Staff is always friendly and very helpful. Highly suggest stopping in if in the area!

On a recent trip into Cleavland stopped at Rozi's. A nice wine shop that sells beer or was it vice versa? Anyhow, shopping about the store with a beer in hand. Yes you can buy a growler or a glass of what ever is on the growler station. It was immediately evident the owners and staff are beer guys. Very knowledgeable about beer and the stock available. The staff very attentive to the customers and able to make many suggestions based off of what I was looking for. Nice cross section of breweries and styles of beer available. I picked up a couple bottles of Bar Bar and found a few bottles of Madame Rose. Was very happy to snatch those up. I didn't try the food but found the shop to be good value if you are in Lake Wood.

When I visited: May 2012.

What I had: Smuttynose Finest Kind IPA (draught), Chicken Salad Sandwich & Chips, sandwich and ginger ale for my better half.

What I bought: Founders Double Trouble, Samuel Adams Dark Depths Baltic Porter, Ballast Point Big Eye IPA, Victory, Stone and Dogfish Head Saison du Buff.

What I liked: Respectable bottle selection, attractive wooden interior (looks recently renovated), pleasant covered patio overlooking the street scape, competent and efficient staff, decent prices, tasty no frills food.

What I disliked: Must have missed something - like another room that I wasn’t aware of? - as the selection was tiny compared to most other U.S. beer stores that I’ve been to. Seemed like the stock was running thin as there were several empty spaces on the shelves. Still, I was very happy with the beers that I purchased (especially the Big Eye).

Would I go back? Yes.

This was my 2nd visit to Rozi's. (First time was just a few days prior, to pick up a growler of Plead the 5th.) It was on May 12th.

My buddy and I both made about $20 in purchases and if we hadn't had more stops, I probably would have spent at least double.

The selection isn't the best I've ever seen, but is still really good. It's not worth the drive just for it (because there are so many places in Lakewood, let alone the greater Cleveland area), but you could be content just visiting Rozi's, I'm sure.

I love some of the special things they get on draft and for that reason alone, let alone their selection, I will be looking to hit the store again sometime this summer.

My son and I visited the Saturday before Easter, with indefinite plans at the in-laws. Turns out we had more time than anticipated, so we got to kill some time at Rozi's. And I am glad we did - a fun shop well worth a lengthy visit.

This is a cool-looking place with really nice ambiance. Wood floors, and a cool corner location in Lakewood.

They serve beer here! I had a great TBK White Rajah and a Diabolical IPA as I shopped. Both were fresh and delicious.

While the space in this shop is distorted to wine, there is a ton of stuff here for craftbeer fans. Great selection.

There is a limited supply of homebrew stuff here. I bought a few things, but I've heard that turn here can be a little slow, and I wouldn't consider it a 1-stop-shop.

I took more of Cory and Brian's time than I had a right to, although to be fair I was trying to generate some ideas to help Cory get more homebrewer traffic.

It's retail pricing here; nothing's really on discount, but I wouldn't say it is out of line with other retail stores in Ohio.

All-in-all, I really enjoyed visiting and would recommend to others!

Stopped by with a few local BA'ers on our way to the BA Blackout release at GLBC.

A bit unassuming from the outside "35th best wine store in the world". Definitely wine-centric as you enter across the creeky old hardwood floors.

Most of the beer is located to the left of the main entrance, with a variety of shelves, coolers, and tables. Doesnt seem to be much organization here but its kind of fun to walk around and take a few trips down the same aisle to see if you missed anything. Good selection of 4 and 6-packs, with very reasonable prices. Single bottle selection was overall good, with some hit-or-miss prices. I did find a small stash of GI Sofie (love it) in one far corner of a cooler, for $8 I bought two. Good amount of regional OH brewies which we do not get.

The few employees we did encounter asked us for helping finding anything, and were very prompt, courteous, and friendly during checkout.

I'd probably stop by if in the area again, knowing I wont find anything to blow my socks off but good for a few randoms I wont see anywhere else. Decent place.

OK...this is more like it! I accidentally went to the Rocky River location earlier and was disappointed...this is the Rozi's I researched and read about.

I entered from the side street, so I had to go up a set of stairs to get into the store. Good put me right in the beer section! First off, you can tell this is a wine centric place...lots and lots of wine to choose from.

The beer is located in the back right (or front left in my case) of the store. They have a few shelves creating pseudo isle and coolers lining the wall. The selection is pretty good...lots of local and domestic craft offerings...available in six packs and bigger bottles. They have a smaller selection of imports also. Everything is clearly priced.

The staff was helpful and very friendly. The place was clean and neatly organized. If I were local, this would be a monthly stop. If you go to the Buckeye Beer Engine, Rozi's is almost right down the street...check it out too!!

Stopped in this place while in Cleveland the other day--very nice store. It's big and bright and clean, which is a refreshing change from some beer stores. Definitely very good service, the guys there seem to be great guys. They have email lists and are willing to talk to you about beer, so I'd say that's pretty good as far as service goes.

The selection is pretty good, they seem to have a lot of good beer, though I'm not convinced that it's the best selection possible. You can tell that this place is really a wine-centered store. Some good Belgians (labeled "Belgium Beer"), some good craft selections, but not the overpowering selection that is available at Belmont Party Supply in Dayton. They had fresh bottles of Squall IPA, which was a treat for me when I walked in. Pricing is reasonable, I would definitely return.

They also have a ton of home-brewing supplies if that's your thing.

One of my go-to stores. Where I feel that this place really shines is in customer service. Corey, Bill, and Gary are always willing to help you.

Quality: If it's new and of good quality, chances are that Rozi's has it. They cover all styles and have the highest rated beers available in those styles (obviously with the exception of those not available in Ohio). They've also had tastings where limited release beers have been brought in growlers. During Cleveland Beer Week last year, they had a big tasting where a growler of BA Blackout was featured. I was at the Fat Head's IPA Fest, so I missed out. Either way, I thought that was pretty cool. They also had a tasting with a rep from Founders that week, and draft-only selections were featured.

Service: I find the service to be outstanding here. They respond to e-mail questions, and are just generally friendly as you look around. I also enjoy how they're not overbearing if you say you do not need help. On the other side of the spectrum, they are not condescending, as some beer store owners tend to be (at least in my experiences). Once they get to know you, there's usually some laughs to be had with Corey.

Selection: When it comes to special release bombers and 25.4 oz bottles, it's tough to beat Rozi's. If it's limited and Cleveland is going to get it, they'll have it (if only for a limited time). Whether it's Pumking, KBS, Nemesis, or other limited releases, they'll have it.

Value: In Ohio, I've fortunately never found too many differences in prices. Rozi's is on par with other stores and they certainly do not mark anything up.

I became a customer of Rozi's when I got into craft beer, and I plan to be a customer for a long time. Along with Friendly Mini-Mart just down the road, this is my favorite beer store. In the case of beer, it's OK to have two favorites.

This is primarily a wine shop, some beermaking supplies, and a beer selection comprised on nothing but quality product. It took a while to search through it all, very good selection indicative of the best available through OH distribution, some of which (Ithaca bombers) I've only seen in a select few stores so far. There was a very helpful sales guy, he knew when the next special releases were coming in (Founders Nemesis for example). He even recommended that they could ship it to me, very helpful. Excellent, I trust the previous reviews. Reasonable prices, for example I bought Cantillon Pissenlit for $13.99 and Zoetzuur Flemish Ale for $12.99.

This place treats its beer just as well as its wine. They do not have a huge beer section, but they only stock quality beers. Only craft, quality imports, and a fair selection of local offerings. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

They also stock quite a bit of home brewing supplies.

Rozi's has added taps for growler fills, or in store pours. They have also added a front patio area to sit enjoy your wine or beer.

Rozi's is my go-to store. The beer is fresh, and the staff are friendly.

Reviewed from notes. Originally visited on 12/21.

I stopped here after doing a little bit of research on Beerfly. We walked in and realized this was a wine store first and a beer/homebrew store second(as implied by the name).

My friend and I did some heavy browsing before he decided on a single of Bell's Rye, and a bomber each of Breckenridge Mighty Brown and Imperial Porter. I thought their selection would be a little more impressive, but it was still very solid with regional specialties as well as some other nice rarities.

I purchased a bottle of Alesmith Speedway Stout for $14(12.99 before tax). They also had Alesmith IPA and Yulesmith at the slightly inflated price of 8.49 a bottle. The rest of their prices seemed fair but at the slightly pricey end of the spectrum.

The service was pretty good and they offered help on their slightly confusing prices. They had singles displayed to make mixed six-packs, but also a singles section that weren't priced at all.

I might make a trip here again if I was in the area, but I wouldn't go out of my way again to come here.

On a very "Main Street USA" kind of neighborhood, which was a nice change of pace from the warzone our GPS system made us drive trough to get there.

Obviously from the name on the marquee, this place is more wine-focused, the Beer section is in the right corner of the store.

Selection was good, but not great. There were some nice rarities, like Pannepot, Stone Cali-Belgique, but for some reason I was expecting more. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have a place like this nearby, I've just seen better overall selection elsewhere. Prices weren't too bad, or at least on par with other stores I've seen on this business trip.

The store was clean and the guy at the cash was friendly. The only possible fault I can find is that prices are scribbled with a white pen directly on the bottles, which isn't really a fault per se, but it is when you can't read the prices correctly half the time.

Learned about Rozi's here on BA. Thanks for the reference. Went last night with three others. We were at Great Lakes Brewing Company which is only 5.5 miles away.

Quality. Very good. Bottles and glasses were presented professionally and all seemed to be clean and well taken care of. There were a few beers whose labels had been nearly torn off but those were for sale seperately and appeared to be at a reduced cost. Quality of brew supplies was very high indeed. I have to rely a little bit on the opinions of one of my friends there since I really did not know what to look for in terms of brew supplies but there were 12 different types of hops, there were hop pellets and plenty of other seasoning, supplies. He was plenty impressed with their selection and indeed at least two homebrew customers came and went during my visit there about 7 pm on a Saturday night, a great sign for a store like this. Beyond the beer they had plenty of cheese, crackers, wine, gift packs and other interesting items.

Service. Good but my party did not really ask for any help. Everyone was very kind and patient with us. They offered a cart when they saw that our bounty was getting too heavy. They were warm and welcoming. I saw them helping the homebrew customers very nicely as well.

Selection. Really quite good. I did see some BMC and some second tier selections in mutli packs like Stella, Hoegaarden but it was the micros and the imports where this place really shined. I saw
Founder's Backwoods Bastard
Founder's Breakfast Stout
Southern Tier 5 to 6 beers including Choklat
Hoppin Frog with several different bombers including B.O.R.I.S. the crusher and many other from their line.
GLBC well represented
Gulden Draak Christmas
St. Bernardus Abt 12 and St. Bernardus Christmas in 750 ml bottles
Aventinus 4 packs
Sam Adams Utopias with the glass gift pack
Avery (well represented with more rare options)
Kasteel Brune, two others
Corsendonk Brown, Pale, Christmas
Peche Mortel
Special Holiday Ale from Stone/Nogne/Jolly Pumpkin
Troegs (several offerings)
Bell's (well represented)
New Holland (well represented)
Ommegang (many, if not all,) offerings including Chocolate Indulgence
and many, many others.

Value: Pretty good. I saw Special Holiday Ale from Stone/Nogne/Jolly Pumpkin for $4.99 per 12 oz. bottle but at another nearby place had it for $8. Really reasonable prices throughout.

Notes: This is a great Beer Advocate location.

I have been here twice over the past few months.

My main purpose is to pick up some of the nowhere to be found or hard to find Midwest beers that I can't get in PA. Oh, and AleSmith.

Plenty of selection from places like Founders, Bells, Great Lakes, Hoppin Frog, Buckeye Brewing and others. Imports seems to be on par but I am really not looking for anything other than midwest brew to notice.

A small but well stocked homebrew section and a small area of glassware round out the beer area.

If you are into wine they have a wonderful selection to ponder.

Service has been very good here with someone always checking to see if we needed help as soon as we walked into the store. Also willing to suggest a lunch stop down the street at Melt this past time, which turned out to be right on!

A nice store, not far off of I-90, and close enough to the Buckeye Beer Engine, Melt and just a little further to GLBC to make it a must stop when in the greater Cleveland area.

Growing up in Cleveland, I'm shocked that I only found out about this place a few weeks ago!

I loved the atmosphere of Rozi's. The wood furnishing and creaky old floors made it feel as if I was in someone's cabin looking at their beer selection. Although the store focuses primarily on wine, there is a decent sized selection of imported and micro brews in the back right corner of the store. There are also several coolers along the wall. Some examples of their selection were Bear Republic, Avery, Chimay, St. Bernardus, Bell's, Great Lakes, Founders, Great Divide, and many more that I can't even remember. Besides all this, they have several home brew supplies.

Although I didn't require service, someone was always willing to help. I'm pretty sure if I asked, they would have had the knowledge to answer my questions.

I ended up purchasing the following beers when I left:

-Bear Republic Hot Rod Rye
-YuleSmith (winter edition)
-Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti
-AleSmith IPA
-Founders Breakfast Stout

Overall, I was pretty impressed with Rozi's. Although it doesn't have as large of a selection as Belmont Party Supply, and it doesn't have quite the array of rare beers as From the Vine, Rozi's is still a must stop if you're in the Cleveland area.

*note - Rozi's also has a Rocky River store that has no where near the selection that the Lakewood store has. Although I did find some bottles of Peche Mortel at the Rocky River store.

We've had the pleasure of visiting here a couple of times now over the last year, as we often overnight in this particular are which is located pretty centrally to other beer stops like Great Lakes and the Buckeye Beer Engine. The primary focus of the store is naturally as a wine shop first (and although I'm not a wine guy, it definitely looks like a very nice and organized one to me) but they do have a complete corner of the shop dedicated to beer. And it's quite a nice selection too. Lots of quality Midwestern stuff here from the likes of Bell's, Founders, New Holland (and occasionally Three Floyds) and the more local Great Lakes and Hoppin' Frog are to be had here. Plus I've had great luck picking up a good bit of quality Ale Smith beers here as well. They also have a better than average import and Belgian selection.

My only complaint is that too many beers can only be found in the cooler but if you're the type that doesn't worry about that too much, than it shouldn't be a problem. A mix and match a six pack singles shelf is also available but they never seem to have anything that interests me when I'm there. They also have some homebrew supplies and a beer glassware selection that fluctuates wildly, depending on the visit. Service has always been good here with someone always checking to see if we needed help finding anything and although prices do seem a little higher on some beers it's never anything that I would consider unreasonable. All in all, this is a sturdy stop (especially for us coming from PA) for finding those Ohio exclusive beers that we often are seeking out when we're out that way.

I love this place. It looks nice from the outside and is awesome inside. This place reminds me of an old old house. It has creeking old wood floors and has a warm cabin feel. Great atmosphere. On to the beer. Great selection of beer with some glassware also. This place also sells home brew supplies. They also have a mix-a-six section for $8.98. Here's some of the beers I found:

Chimay - red white and blue
Corsendonk - basics
Delerium - basics
Trappistes Rochefort 10
Unibrou - basics
Founders - Dirty Bastard, Cenntenial IPA, Reds Rye
Plenty more

I bought:

Bell's Special Double Cream Stout - $2.19
Bell's Cherry Stout - $2.49

Mix-a-six - $8.98
Shiner Bohemian Black Lager
Magic Hat Odd Notion '07
Magic Hat Roxy Rolles
Lakefront Brewery Holiday Spice Lager
Brechenridge Christmas Ale
Left Hand BlackJack Porter

Great place to visit and get some good beer. If you've never been, go at least once.

Rozi's is a corner store located on the corner of Detroit Ave and Cook Ave. It's directly across the street from the Marc's Plaza. You know what that means! If you don't, it means that there is plenty free parking and you don't have to deal with those annoying parking meters. When you first walk in, you know you are in the presence of one of the greatest wine stores on the West side of Cleveland. They got wine from all over the count....oh wait, this isn't Wine Advocate, this is Beer Advocate. At least 85% of the store is dedicated to wine. After you enter the door, squeak (they have some of the squeakiest floors) your way down straight past the small counter until you encounter a small wood display and two small refrigerators with Belgian beers. Go around the second refrigerator and you will see a refrigerator with yeast for homebrewing and a refrigerator filled with macros. Turn around and there is another small wood display, a German (?) refrigerator, an English (?) refrigerator and a metal rack to the right of the small wood display. The back wall is just one big refrigerator dedicated to American micros. At the end of the American micro refrigerator, turn right and you will encounter a boat shaped make your own six pack for $9 shelf. Don't get your hopes up on the make your own six pack shelf. It's a joke! It was only filled with craft beers and macros that are only worth $.80 a bottle. All they had on that shelf was just Sierra Nevada, St. Pauli Girl, Sapporo, and Penn Pilsener. When I saw that, I said this can't be it? But it was. It looked like a single rack they would have at Giant Eagle and not a good beer store. Like I said before, it was a joke and an expensive pathetic joke at that.

When I walked in I was at least greeted by someone, but it looked like the 2 of them were very busy varnishing the wood below the window. I didn't want to bother them with any beer or store related questions because they looked content doing it. I will however give them the benefit of the doubt that they know a little something about the beer they sell. After I bought a bottle of beer, I could have turned around and easily taken one of their many $100 bottles of wine with me because they were going to finish varnishing come hell or high water.

The first wood floor display you're going to notice has a few six/four packs and 750s of imported beer like Saison Dupont and Ayinger Celebrator. That is also where you can find a 750 of Southampton's Saison. I didn't bother to get a real good look at the first display. The Belgian refrigerators were filled with a bottle or 2 of Cantillon, a few varieties of St. Bernardus, Val-Dieu, Chimay, Trappistes Rochefort 8 and 10, Delirium, Lindemans, Reinaert Flemish, La Chouffe, and a few more. Their German and English refrigerators were on the bare side and only had a pony keg of Kapuziner, more 4 packs of Ayinger Celebrator, Unibroue (probably is in the wrong spot), 500ml bottles of Stiegl, Samuel Smith, one 750ml of an English IPA that I didn't know, and a few Young's. There were more, but they were beers I didn't get a good look at or they were beers you can get anywhere else. The metal rack next to the English refrigerator had some high octane beers like Avery's Mephistopheles' Stout, Rogue's Morimoto Black Obi Soba (not really a high octane beer) Rogue's ceramic bottles of Morimoto's Imperial Pilsner, Old Crustacean, and Imperial Stout. The American micro refrigerator wall is the best part of Rozi's. That was filled with bombers/packs of Hoppin' Frog, Southern Tier, Stone (including their seasonal), more of Avery's Mephistopheles' Stout and Collaboration Not Litigation Ale, North Coast's Brother Thelonious, 3 or 4 varieties of Great Divide, Great Lakes (including their seasonal), 750 of Dogfish Head's Pangaea and Burton Baton, a repeat of Rogue's Old Crustacean and Imperial Stout and few more high quality American micros. On the other outside wood display is where they kept the 2 or 3 varieties of AleSmith (including Speedway Stout), bombers of Three Floyds Alpha Klaus Xmas Porter and Behemoth Blonde Barleywine, the big 3 Liter of Stone's Double Bastard, more Mephistopheles' Stout, more bottles of Rogue's Old Crustacean and Imperial Stout, 6 packs of Jolly Pumpkin, a few six packs of Bell's, and just a few more quality American micros that I couldn't remember. I should also mention that they have a large selection of branded beer glasses. They had every type of beer glass from an everyday pint glass to a once in a while goblet.

After looking around I noticed that they specialize in only expensive and uncommon beers. If you don't have $300 to spare on 3 bottles of beer, you gotta go somewhere else. If I ever decide to go here again and they filled up the German and English refrigerators, I know it will be filled with $10 beers that I wouldn't be interested in. Only go if you're in the area and there is parking available at the Marc's Plaza.

Whenever I'm passing through the area, I stop into Rozi's. The first time I went in, I took a quick look at the relatively small beer section and thought I had wasted a trip. Yeah, right - $200 later I thought again. The beer area is a pretty small section of the store (most of the space is dedicated to wine), but there is NO bad (or even average!) beer in this place. Tremedously well-picked selection.
The service is great - I was asked a couple times if I needed help, and the guys there were more than willing to talk about beer. I was treated very graciously at checkout, and they even helped me wheel my haul out to my car. I was given a card and they told me to feel free to call or email ahead if I had any special requests next time. Very nice, and highly recommended.

I can easily believe that Rozi's has the best beer selection in Cleveland. I thought that my ability to be impressed was a thing of the past, but this place impressed me. Expansive, airy and well-lit store with atmospheric, creaking wood floors. The front and sides are filled with wine, but I was interested only in the beer which is located in the back of the store, generally speaking. A few of the bottles were pretty thick with dust, but who knows, maybe that provides an extra measure of UV protection.

I started with the coolers along the back-right wall and walked among well-stocked short aisles and wooden shelves. Just when I thought that I had see the last of the beer, I'd turn a corner and run across another set of shelves or a wooden rack or yet another cooler with dozens of bottles that I hadn't previously seen in any other store. The great U.S. breweries are well-represented, I won't run down the list yet again. My focus wasn't on imports on this particular trip, but Belgain, English and German offerings were numerous as well.

I saw J.W. Lee's going back to '97 and I picked up the entire Anchor OSA line from '98-'02. Several of the OSAs were part of a mixed-sixer and were $1.45 each! I'm more than satisfied with the rest of my purchases as well, I managed to fill a mid-sized box with ease. If I hadn't already bought an obscene amount of beer over the past week, I could have gone crazy in this place. Anyone who lives within 50 miles of Rozi's owes it to themselves to check it out. Satisfaction guaranteed. Let me end by mentioning the incredibly friendly, helpful proprietor. Great people and great selection make for great beer stores.

The building seems a bit old and the focus seems to be more on wine than beer, but there is a nice feel to the place. It's a lot nicer than most liquor stores. The beer is back in the back and is a little cramped, but has a nice selection. There's also homebrewing supplies sold just in front of the beer coolers. Not a bad little store for people looking for good beer.

This would be an especially good place for beer and cheese pairings as they had a cheese counter in the middle of the store. The guy who was in charge of the beer was very enthusiastic and helpful and very knowledgeable about beer. Good store.

Good selection of beer and wine, although the area where beer is kept is a little cramped. The kid who is in charge of the beer area is probably the most knowledgeable person I've seen in any Cleveland area beverage stores. He took the time to come over and ask me if I was finding everything I needed, and we talked about all things beer for quite a while.

I found a good selection of micros, fresh local micros (lost of GLBC and a very good selection of Crooked River) and thought their Belgium collection was acceptable. They also have a very good selection of German and English brews. Other nations weren't as well represented, but there.

Overall I think so far this establishment is under rated--the store may not be as organized and brightly lit as some, but the selection is great and the service is excellent. A must visit while in Cleveland
