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.

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.

Overall Rating: 80

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!
