made first visit yesterday. large warehouse type store that has pretty much whatever you want for party needs and booze and lots of snacks and finger foods. they have an extensive wine section I mean aisles and aisles of wine. but I was there for the beer. once I put the cart in the right direction I was ohhhing and aahhing. lots are great regional and national selections. at least for those that can be delivered to Kentucky. lots of bombers and singles to be picked over. in the back of the store was ei8ht ball brewing I poked my head in but didnít have one. I found several beers that I have never had before and made my purchases. all the employees were smiling and happy and helpful. very easy to get to and plenty of parking. will be back next time I am there.

This store bills itself as the largest alcohol store is the US, and I have no reason to doubt that. The place is the size of the average local grocery store, and almost all of it is dedicated to wine, liquor, mixers, and of course, beer. The place has multiple Walmart-sized aisles dedicated just to bourbon, and they have a similar dedication to their beer selection. Kegs, bombers, single bottles, packs - if itís distributed in Kentucky at all, you can likely find it there. If not, theyíll track some down for you.

Utterly massive beer/wine/liquor supermarket-type store. Beer has its own substantial amount of shelf space and was well organinzed. Very itimidating to walk in and try to pick out just a handful of things. In the very back next to the bar entrance, thereís a shelf dedicated to top-choice beers. Only time Iíve seen 3 Font Gueze and Evil Twin Even More Jesus just sitting around. Even the prices were very reasonable. If I were a local, this would easily be my one stop shop.

Will have to say this is the best overall beer store in Kentucky. Great selection of all the local/regional and international beers. As an added bonus, you can have a beer or three in the back. A great place - will be a must stop everytime Iím in the area.

Selection, price and helpful staff. Wow. Huge store, great cigar, spirits wine selections. The beer? Everything you can get legally in this market. Plus Ei8ht Ball Brewery in the back. Wish there was one near my home. Ohio liquor laws and taxes have made this place possible. Evryone drives across the river to get deals. Makes for an artificially huge customer base. This results in a near perfect store.

The Party Source is like the Walmart of alcohol without the Walmart feeling. This place has more alcohol than you can imagine. But for this review let us focus on the beer section. I had to wander throughout the store searching for the beer, but when I found it and walked around the corner to discover the hidden treasure I was amazed. They have six packs sorted by state, but their single bottle selection is rivaled by none. I could spend a small fortune in this place. Everything was at a decent price as well. If it was not cheaper by a buck or two then it was at least the same as anywhere else. There werenít really any employees around, but I donít need someone to tell me what Iím looking at or help me find something. I was like Magellan exploring the new varieties of beer mine eyes have never seen.

Always a large place with a solid selection of beer. They have expanded to add a brewing operation and a craft beer bar. The beer buyer has gone on a quest and is bringing in new beers faster than I can drink them. Definitely my place to go for beers greater than 12% or breweries that donít come to Ohio.

An awesome beer store in Bellevue, KY just over the river from Cincinnati. First of all itís a huge liquor store and the beer selection doesnít disappoint. There is a huge international lineup- basically they offer full lineups of all the international breweries you could want. Mikkeller, Beer Here, Amager, de Dolle, Nogne, 8 Wired, Moa, Evil Twin, djaelvberg, de Molen, etc. Basically a huge selection of international beers and not just 1 beer from each brewery but the whole lineup. It was pretty crazy. I have never seen anything like this before (not even at the top beer stores in the Northeast...from what I recall, Julioís pales in comparison to this place). They also have American beers but not as impressive a selection. That is probably their weakness. Prices are going to be higher just because of the imports. And to top it all off, there is a bar in the back featuring Ei8ht Ball Brewery beers and 30+ other international impossible-to-get-anywhere-else beers. Growler fills are available. A do not miss beer store in Cincinnati, but your wallet will be sorry the next day.

Iíve been going to this place for years but today was the first time Iíve visited since the place expanded. The very huge beer selection is now a CRAZY HUGE selection Donít be fooled by the new coolers near the register--they barely scratch the surface--head toward the back. The shelf space has increased at least four fold, with signs indicating local/regionals, imports, mead, sampler pack display, and many others. But thereís overlap in the categories so if you donít see it one place, keep looking. Add to that the growler station, beer cave, kegs, glassware, other displays near the entrance and check out lanes and you have beer heaven or something close to it. And theyíll soon open a brewery and bar/tasting area. The one drawback is that a lot of the prices seem a little higher than in the past but donít let that stop you--this is a must stop if youíre in or near the Cincinnati area. If you donít find anything you like here, then you donít like beer and should try wine or spirits (this place has a huge selection of these as well), if not milk and water.

PROS: Beer Mecca for the KY/IN/OH tri-state area (and maybe beyond). Makes Jungle Jimís (Fairfield, at least) look like a slacker in terms of selection. I canít imagine a better selection, arranged in a better way, and with the vast, vast variety this place offers (with one caveat). Never have I seen not one but two clerks specifically assigned to a beer section, ready to answer any questions. One fellow took me back to their growler station (more on that later) and let me try a few free samples. Beer was priced very well, and available in a cooler (about the size of my home in singles) or out on the shelves warm. CONS: This will sound strange to say, but I think they could do more with their space. Yes, thereís a megaton of beer, but even Liquor Barn (Town Center) has a growler station manned by a fellow (they already had two working the floor beer!), and pours a variety of beer servings. I could only get a 32oz. 64 oz. or a tiny (1 oz.) taster here, and the growler station was packed back behind closed doors in the stocking area. How awesome if they had a little growler bar area, pouring awesome beer in different measures while you shopped? Kinda like Louisville Beer Store on steroids. selection was a little underwhelming, but you arenít really coming here for food, are you? OVERALL: This place is almost perfect. Iíd feel fortunate (and bankrupt) to live within 15-20 minutes of The Party Source. Worth a trip just to experience this place (bring your savings account). Parking in the front.
