This is mostly a liquor store but they do carry a large selection of different beers. They have really expanded and carry a good selection of craft beers. They even put in a growler station. I have talked to the owner and he is very nice, tells me what the new stuff is and knows his beers. The only bad thing is that they do not do single bottle sales. This is a good store if you know what it is that you are looking for that you can not find at your local supermarket or off the wall. They do have a cooler with some 4/6 packs and a handful of bombers. It is a great place to stop in and pick up something old if you are lucky.

I discovered this place while doing community service @ the old Salvation Army, wasn't as good when i first came but, the new beer guy (manager) he caters to his clientele, a lot of people who go to this store purchases liquor and mainstream brews (budweiser, millers, etc.) But he has an arrange of craft beers, plus his account gets a lot of respect. If you want exclusive, limited, special releases, seasonal releases he can get it no problem, such as KBS, Hopslam, etc. This is the best beer store i ever went to in Northeast Ohio and i've been to a lot, such as in Lakewood and South Euclid, understand what I'm saying. I stay in the heart of Cleveland, not in Suburbs, and this is the best craft brew store in the radius, thank you all.

Located in a strip mall in Willowick. Decent selection of American micros. The problem is that a lot of their selection, including unpasteurized products, are sitting out on the shelves at room temperature and a lot of the six packs are sporting a hefty layer of dust on the bottles. This wouldn't be a problem if there was a quick turnover of these beers, but most of their clientele are buying twelves of Busch Light. I work three minutes from here but don't usually bother to stop- I'll wait to get near home and stop off at the Hudson Acme.

The adress here says Eastlake, but it is actually in Willowick. Located in the East corner of Shorgate Plaza next to Medic.

This is the closest and easiest place for me to pick up some hard to find brews. As far as variety goes, there is an entire wall dedicated to American Microbrews with a few European selections. But I do have to warn you: many can be outdated. Many of the sixers are covered with dust and stuck to the shelves. However, your more popular Micro's (Victory, Bell's, Great Lakes, Stone) do rotate very well.

For the most part a decent place to pick up some good beer if in the area, but if you have some time take the extra 20 minutes and drive down to Lina's in Painesville.
