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.

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 while.you 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!

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.
