Hidden in a Dollar General store in Piqua, this place is a liquor store with some wine and a decent selection of craft beer. They had a lot of seasonals and the usual good Ohio craft beer line up. Not a destination kind of place but it has a very nice selection for the locals and those in the area.

Stopped in to what was around. Lots of stuff on the shelf. Some big bottles and lots of 6 packs. One bad thing you canít pull out singles you just have to take what ever singles are out. If I lived in the area that would be nice to pick up a 6 pack of some Bells/Founders/ or a few others. The price looks pretty good and have a few imports. Some vintage stuff aswell.

I do live in this area and have my whole life.Its a small town of about 22,000 people.This is the only place in a 40 mile plus radius to get any kind micro or craft beer.He does have a really great selection and utilizes the space he has well.As for it being connected to a Family Dollar store,there have been 3-4 other stores in that building and they have outlasted them all.The owner Jack knows quite a bit about beer and the other staff are always very friendly,It is true too that if he doesnít have it he will get it for you.That said coming from an "economically depressed area of the rust belt" this is one of my favorite beer stores and I have been to a few.Side note:I donít know what the hang up is about this place being connected to a Family Dollar.Whats the difference from that and bottle stores in strip malls?

Iím from this area originally, it is an economically depressed area of the rust belt and a beer store that can manage to stay in business here with a selection like this needs to be commended. I get in there about once every two months and the selection has usually changed a bit. There is a liquor store connected and the counter staff is always really friendly. Iíve heard second hand that the owner will order beer upon request and is somewhat knowledgable in his selections. I just wish this place had existed when I lived in this area.

Upgrade: they have added another aisle of import/micros. It is still a FD store, but a good liquor one at that.
Its a Family Dollar store!!! The PBC is off to the right of the entrance. Initial impression , aside from it being a Family Dollar store was this was a typical crappy BMC OH liquor store. Well the singles selection won out on me deleting this place. They have Jolly Pumpkin, Stone AB & Ruination, and a few Euros new to me( although the Greene King "Beer for Dinner" in a clear glass 750 scared me.) Quality of said selections might come into question as some selections are haphazardly scattered on the floor.
Note: My curiosity got the better of me with this place as it was entered by someone who had not rated it otherwise they would of checked the $1 :patio furniture, proper glassware, cigars, and games available at the Family Dollar store. Weak, Skiless.
