I stopped here to pick up some quick beers, good selection, good service. Definitely a worthwhile stop when in Cleveland. There is a goof mix of local and foreign as well as a good selection in fridge.

My regular stop. The only reason I don't give fives across the board is that I've been to places outside the area with a slightly better selection but that's a small quibble.

Small but worthy. Lots of variety amd selection. Ability to find some random special stuff. A little on the average-high side of pricing for some things, but way cheap for others. All depends. Much meade too. Good spot.

I stop whenever I am in the area. Tons of bombers (mostly high-higher end) and plenty of 4/6 packs to choose from. Most of the new or seasonal stuff is out front as soon as you walk in so you don't have to search for them. A pretty nice selection of Belgium/oversees stuff which is nice. Pricing is fair. Service is helpful and always asks if you need anything. Definately worth checking out and highly recommended.

Great combination of both beer and home brew items, service has always been great, though I do wish they would have a greater selection of mixed six pack beers. Have a very wide selection of items I haven't seen anywhere else in NE Ohio, so its always fun to stop in and try something new.

After reading good things about this shop my wife and I made the trip yesterday and were pleasantly surprised. It is a small shop that has a lot to offer and a polite staff. We stocked up mainly on bombers...some were $1.00 cheaper than grocery stores and Lizardville,and a few were from breweries in Southern Ohio that it haven't seen at other shops in the Cleveland area. I'd definitely go here if I needed something for a bottle share.

If you are from out if town looking for Ohio beers I didn't see a lot from the popular Ohio breweries, but I was pleased with the selection from some newer breweries in southern Ohio. Will go back when I want to stock up again for the cellar and I recommend making the trip here for any Clevelander.

Great selection of beers. One of the best selections in the area. They carry most things that are distributed in the area. Lots of bombers.

They have few single bottles (1 rack in the back of the store) so if your looking to mix and match a sampler, look else where. Also, they charge a slight markup for single bottles.

The staff is pretty knowledgeable and friendly.

the only bad thing about this place is that it seems to be the go-to beer stop for a lot of people. That makes some rare beers very hard to come by and they usually limit you to 1-2 bottles a person. They don't do wait lists and don't hold for regulars, that makes it pretty straight forward.

A huge selection. They have tons of local stuff as well as beers from around the world. They also have a very helpful FB page. They post updates and pictures of their latest shipments. I have stopped in three times and had mixed results with the staff. On my first visit, the staff was very helpful and happy to chat beer with me. On the third visit, the guy seemed a bit annoyed and made a couple of perfunctory recommendations for me. Pretty disappointing. But overall, one of the best stores in Cleveland.

Warehouse Beverage is my go-to as I live in the area. Their stock is very respectable, and they cater to nearly every taste along both beer and wine spectrums. They also have a solid availability of beer-, wine-, and cheese-making (I think so, if I remember correctly) equipment. The owner(s) are committed to fairness by allowing as many people as possible access to their rare selections--e.g., Stone Enjoy By is limited to one per person, as well as other limitations. Overall, highly recommended.

Addendum: if you're concerned about the establishment carding you (I'll refrain from referencing anyone else's post, which may or may not be below mine), or that the owners/operators abstain from coddling you as soon as you enter the door, take that as confirmation that they (1) abide by the law (even for the high-rollers dropping a phat Benji for a Christmas party (living big!)) and (2) prefer not to pounce every patron who enters the door, prefering instead to allow the customers to take their time and leisurely peruse the selection available. After all, certainly a customer in need has the capacity to ask rudimentary questions. To concede: yes, Warehouse Beverage does not have door greeters, thankfully (they're not Wal-Mart). Your questions, I promise, will be met with an extensive wealth of knowledge and ample assistance.

My brother in law suggested Warehouse Beverage when I was trying to find Stone's limited release, Lukcy Basartd. I have been making nearly a weekly stop on my lunch brakes ever since.

The store has a wide variety of beers and wines, and odds are, if it is distributed in Ohio, you'll find it here. They also have a good selection for the home brewer, be it pre-packaged kits or individual ingredients. If they do not have the home brew necessities you’re looking for, they are quick to offer special order items (I’ve had a few yeast strains requested and received them quickly).

To get the most out of this store, like/follow them on Facebook (Warehouse Beverage, Inc.) or Twitter WarehouseBevInc. They have mastered the art of free advertising, and regularly update their followers with weekly shipments, usually riddled with hard to get seasonals, or limited edition releases.

Price wise, I have a similar shop closer to home; however, Warehouse Beverage typically comes in a bit cheaper depending on the selection, and seem to have a much friendlier staff. If you’re in the area, this is the place to buy.

Since I was a kid, I have driven by this place on Mayfield Rd. a million times. Its funny, its really easy to totally miss it as its hidden going west by an enormous church/pre-school. When I finally turned 21 I looked online for places that could offer me a fine selection of beer. And long and behold after years of seeing the sign, thinking perhaps it was another awkward, abandoned, bar hole on mayfield, it turned out to be a mini warehouse of a great selection of beer. They have my favorite Before and After, which most places don't sell. Unfortunatley they have only one fridge of cold singles to choose from, which I think no longer exits, and not is only a shelf of singles. But the selection is still nice, and its close drive from home, which is better then say having to go over the west side or through the projects to get to a place which hold a nice selection.
The place is owned by three brothers, you can't miss them, theryre all 6'6 or 6'7. However, one of the brothers you most certainly want to avoid. He seems pissed all the time, always, no matter what, then the brother who's usually there is more moderate in his temperament, meaning he won't greet you, ask you if you need help, but will entertain a question. And finally one of the brothers is quite sweet, always seems to smile, and always quick to answer anything your wondering about. Overall, the place is tiny, but pacts a heavy punch with a nice selection. If your from mayfield, beachwood, lyndhyrst, solan, pepper pike, shaker, its the place for you. ENJOY.

Quickly becoming my primary beer store. Excellent selection of all manner of beers, from BMC to rare/limited release 22's. There isn't much that you cannot find here. They post almost daily on Facebook their new beers, especially limited release stuff. FYI - if it's limited, you'll have to ask specifically for what you want because they keep it behind the register to prevent hoarding. Most of their seasonal stuff is on the floor as you walk in, and 22's are on the back wall (100+). If you are looking for cold beer, you probably wont find it, as there aren't many coolers, and this space is pretty much limited to BMC or high turnover beers (Great Lakes/Sierra Nevada). 3 aisles of beer, all well organized. They also have lots of wine and a selection of home brewing gear. Staff is friendly and helpful, and if you can't find what you want, they will probably do what they can to help you get it. Easily the best shop on Cleveland's east side.

Warehouse Beverage has been around selling quality beer long before there ever was such a thing as "craft beer". Back then, it was mostly English, German and other European brews, with a smattering of good American stuff like Anchor, Sierra Nevada, and Sam Adams. Over half of their store was wine, and the owners definitely knew their wine.

Today, their craft and import beer selection keeps crowding out their wine selection. While not all of the brothers who run the place are very knowledgable about beer, one is, and he's been getting in some fabulous stuff.

Stock does not rotate as fast as it should, particularly for some of the American craft beer, so make sure to chekc freshness dates or out-of-place sediment.

They've also taken to putting out great updates on FB, and will (I think rightly so) keep harder to get stuff behind the counter and limit its sale to one or two per person. For example, they sold Founder's Devil Dancer by the bottle, limit two per person. This avoids hoarding, allows others in the Cleveland craft beer community to buy and enjoy good rare beer, and helps avoid that awful let down of driving 30 minutes to get there to find out they're already out of stock.

Prices are decent, though not outstanding. In fact, my local grocery store (Heinen's) has such a great selection, that I use Warehouse Beverage as my go-to place for things I can't find elsewhere; things I'm willing to spend an extra buck or two to get and try.

If you're on the east side of Cleveland, you really can't fund a better selection at a decent price than you will at Warehouse Beverage. Definitely give them a try if you haven't already.

I just moved into the area about a week ago and I have already been there 3 times. They have a very large selection of some pretty good breweries from around the world. I especially like the selection of Belgium beers. However, I am disappointed in the fact that I can not find many sours at this shop, which happen to be one of my favorites. I was also surprised to see 4 different 22oz bottles from The Bruery when I walked in the first time.
I just moved here from Colorado so I am having a hard time finding some of my favorites like Russian River. However I am excited to try some new breweries from the east coast.
Overall, this place will be frequented often by me and am excited to have this only about a mile from my house.

I was finally able to drive up here as I was in the Cleveland area last weekend. Outstanding selection of bombers/750s, and 4/6 packs here. Not too great of a singles selection, but the import selection and bombers make up for it. They also have a great glassware selection as well(Finally got myself a Duvel Tulip!!!)

Lots of breweries available here. Alesmith, most of the Jolly Pumpkin offerings, Pretty much every Ommegang available, Buckeye(including the new Zatek 2011-A), Great Lakes, Hoppin Frog, Brewdog, Lindemans, Nogne O, Cantillon, Founders, Bells, Arcadia, New Holland, Liefmans, JW Lees Harvest(They had a great vintage selection here, locked up though, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009 from what I remember) Also had the Traquair 2020 in there as well. The owners were very knowledgeable of the selection and could help me with any questions I had, even though I didn't have many.

Also had a nice but not outstanding selection of homebrew supplies. Overall I love this place for the import and bomber selection! Would definitely stop by again when I am in Cleveland again.

Great selection and fantastic service. Chatted with the gentleman at the counter about our experiences with craft beer, I am co-owner of a restaurant/beer bar in Missouri, and when I paid he helped me out to my car with my purchases...my wife hates it when I need a dolly to get the beer to the car. I didn't make it to any other bottle shops, so I don't know how the selection differs from others, but it seemed to be quite broad. I passed right by the imports, but there seemed to be quite a variety of Belgian, and German beers present. Just to the right of the register is a dramatic wall of 750s and 22s, and there was also a large selection of single 12 ouncers for mix-n-match six packs.
