This is a little tucked away and hard to find if you are expecting more of an exterior than what looks like just another generic convenient store. Walk inside however and you are greeted by aisles of singles.
The selection is a nice representation of local breweries, regional stuff from New York, Pennsylvania, and the rest of Ohio, and national brands. Also well represented are a variety of Belgian breweries. Almost everything can be purchased as a single so if you want only a single White Rajah that can be arranged.
Prices were fair for the most part compared to Lizardville, Red Wine and Brew, and Warehouse Beverage. Given the location I will definitely be stopping by here every time I head up towards the lake just to see what is in stock. If you checking out Melt or downtown Willoughby put it on your itinerary too.

I love this place. The people are very nice. The growler prices cannot be beat and are always top notch. All beers are available as singles at no additional markup. Excellent selection. They carry pretty much everything. They even carry my beer out to my car (which is really not necessary). This place would really be rated world class were it not that some douchebag probably from World Wines gave a low rating (below) on the only day that person ever logged into ratebeer. I have asked the admins to remove the bogus rating but they did not reply. (I have nothing to do with Save-On. I am only a customer.) I only took off one point for ambiance because sometime the radio is too loud and one point for selection because they didnít have Bigfoot when everyone else did. This is by far the best store around these parts.

When I pulled up to it, my first impression was íWhat a dumpí. But upon entering you soon realize that you canít judge a book by its cover. The place is all focused around Good Beer, Some Liquor and Smokes. The atmosphere is decent, not a total beer snobs haven, but okay. The quality of beers are decent, they get some heavy hitters on their shelves but lacks in any rarities or extreme rarities. The service is average, there were two people working who knew what they kinda had but couldnít really help you. The quality of their selection is decent, they draw a lot of brewers from Ohio and surrounding states but thatís about it. I think the locals scored this place so high because they havent seen better but this place is the 4th best beer retailer Iíve been inside the past 7 days. (Beers of the World, Rochester NY...Half Time in Poughkepsie NY...Premier Gourmet, Kenmore NY)
To quote Ogre from Revenge of the Nerds...Its good, here why.

This is a small dump looking store next to a gas station and I never would have stopped here if not for the reviews here on RB. I will definitely be back the next time I am in the area! Great selection, many singles, and decent pricing.

Stopped in here one day on a recommendation with a friend. The store has a large selection of domestic brew with a smaller selection of imports. A large selection of beers are available cold with the majority being warm. Every time I have been here the people working have been extremely friendly and helpful. The singles are offered with no mark up which makes this the go to shopping destination for my beers. Highly recommended.
**Update** Growler fills are now available here.

Iíve been to this place several times even though I live about an hour and 15 minutes away. They have a lot of beer that I canít get in Erie, Pa.
Lots of beer to chose from. Mostly warm, but plenty cold as well. As far as the quality goes, there are some beers that are past their "enjoy before" and "best if enjoyed by" dates, but youíll have that with such a big selection.
Run by an Indian woman, her mother, and her cousin with decent beer knowledge, and theyíre certainly friendly enough.
Hereís some of what you can find...
and a lot more.
Iím not used to the tax being that Iím from Pa, but it about evens things out to what I would pay here in Erie.

Iíve been going to this place since it opened. The owner and sister are the most polite people Iíve met. Clearly the review below is purposely trying to debase the place for other reasons. Their selection is fantastic. If you want a special order, they gladly take them. The mix your own 6pack is a great deal as they donít mark up the individual bottles, same price per bottle if you buy one or 4/6. I highly recommend this place.

The only thing good about this place was itís selection. I met who I think was the owner while in there and he was extremely rude to me and disrespectful. I will never walk step into this store again because of the owner and will continue to do my business at World Wines & Liquor. Itís ashame the owner of the store is the reason people donít go back there.

Thanks to Adamette for telling me about this place.
For starters, Itís clean and organized, and you can mix your own six pack with almost any sixer they have, and for a very reasonable price. The owner was very knowledgeable and helpful even though he was very busy. Just the selection of Seasonal "winter ales and Lagers" was better than any place I seen that day...I went to 5 different places. This is definitely my new Go-To spot when I go to Mentor. Canít wait to go there in the spring for the next wave of Seasonalís. Best place.Period.
