This place is a good stopping point if you want to pick up some local Cincinnati ticks w/o visiting the brewers themselves. They seem to be focused on local selection--which is a good thing--and have a smattering of other craft beer as well. They have a small selection available as singles and do growler/half growler fills on a eight or a dozen taps. It does not seem to be the place to go if you are looking to stock up on rare bottles but the selection is solid and it’s always been fresh in my experience. My only small complaint is you have to wait in separate lines for growler fills and bottles and cans. I presume that is some sort of state law but it is still kinda a pain. In any case, aside from that, this gives me pretty much exactly what I want in a beer store which is a fresh, locally focused selection so I dig it.
O’Bryan’s Wine is the best place to go for all your needs. They have a huge selection of spirits, wines, and beers. They just got growlers and have 16 beers always on tap. The beers on tap are wonderful and are reasonably priced. Their O-to-Go growlers are so clever and unique! If you stop in and get beer to fill a growler make sure you fill their O-to Go!
The staff is so welcoming, helpful, and knowledgable. They are always willing to help out and 110% of the time provide excellent costumer service.
O’Bryan’s is definitely the place to come...even if you live closer to another store. There is no place that will give you the selection AND customer service like O’Bryan’s does!
A great selection of domestic 6 and 12 packs including some I have never seen any place else, and they will have a growler station with 14 taps in the near future. Light on the imports and singles. Unfortunately, their rating got really messed by some idiot who goes by robben.
I had heard that this place in Loveland had a good beer and wine selection, and after stopping in, I’d agree. They’ve got a pretty extensive selection (although nothing rare), and as a plus, almost every beer is cold. It’s a nice, clean spot with friendly staff and decent prices. Definitely the best beer spot in Loveland that I’m aware of.

Update 4-16-13 Much expanded beer selection-interesting selections. Small but well worth the stop if you are in the area.
Better selection can be had near Montgomery Rd in either direction - Riversbend Wine & Spirits North Root Cellar south. O’Bryan’s selection isn’t bad though. They have Bells, Great Lakes, Flying Dog, etc and a few Belgians including several of the Trappist. If I lived close to them I go there a lot, but I won’t go out of my way to make a trip there. Traffic is terrible in and around that area.
A friend of mine took me here and I was surprised. They had the normal DFH, Stone, and other big names you would expect, but they also had 3 floyds, TBK, nd some other small gems I have not seen at smaller liquor stores. Normally just the specialized bottle shoppes or the big guys (party source, deps, party town) carry it.
If they don’t have a beer that you want , they will order for you if they can get it in Ohio. That’s a good thing if you live close by. Nice selection of beers from all around the world. And they carry all of the Cincinnati local brands.
