Iíve been going to Chucks for 40 years. When I was a little kid Iíd get a pop and a pretzel stick and theyíd give me their extra beer signs to hang on my bedroom walls. The clientel would buy their cases of Gennesee and Black Label in long neck returnable bottles. Now, like every other store in Chagrin Falls, theyíve gone boutique selling imported cheese, fine wines and microís. They do a good job of it. It is fun to go through their cooler in the back looking for hidden beer treasures. They also sponsor tastings and have a pretty knowledgeable staff. See Mike for beer advice.
Best beer store Iíve ever been in. Mike "The Swami" of suds will direct you wherever your tastes inquire. Lots of individual beers and 22ozs spread the varieties. Rare, expansive styles and regions provide a great variety of options. Iím a local and would argue itís one of the best Iíve seen living across the country.
A fine detour in Clevelandís suburbs. This is one gourmet wine/cheese/beer stop that seems to be ran with passion from as friendly people as one can hope for. Theyíd show us the impressive remnants of their French courses, would bring the beer up to our car to send us out with good wishes and would offer good advice and places to stop on our way. Just genuine, good people. As far as service, it does not get much better. The place is also well laid out, in a nice little town so that you feel very comfortable. Some other raters complain about the premium prices, this is not something Iíve felt, but Iím not so familiar with Ohioís usual costs. It certainly was cheaper than in Pennsylvania. As far as the selection goes, there were a couple of hundred different beers to choose from. Not very practical is the fact that they preferred not to break six-packs. Be sure to ask for the walk-in cooler because thatís where we bought 2/3 of our stuff from. This contained a few newer limited offerings. Not a world-class selection, but the usual suspects are covered and I was happy to find stuff like Buckeye and The Brew Kettle. If service is of importance to you, thatís a top spot. If selection is all that counts, there may be better options, but not many in Greater Cleveland area. For instance, I found Chuckís superior to Roziís in Lakewood.

I have visited Chucks several times over the past couple years. They have a nice selection. They charge more than the average store in the area which is annoying. More annoying to me is their good stuff is in the back cooler. So I have to freeze my ass off to shop their better items. No thanks. I wonít be visiting Chucks any more. They still have a nice selection and premium prices if you like.
A real gem within the shops and homes of Chagrin Falls. Great selection of single beers as well as wine, glassware, cheeses and specialty items. Service is fantastic and employees are always willing to help with your selection. Ask to see the additional selection of beers in the back of their walk-in cooler.
A nice surprise I was shown on a visit to family in the area. Nice ambiance for a beer store. Staff were beyond friendly. They had mistakenly put the wrong price beneath a 6 pack and gave me the price which was two dollars cheaper. Nice selection of imports and micros from the area. A good place to pick up some beer, I canít ask for much more.
Decided to head out that way and check it out. Lots of imports, guezes, lambics, that sort of thing and a few things that you really canít find many other places (Brewdog, for instance). Tiny, cramped little place that teaches you how to dance, thats for sure! Excellent selection of hard-to-find 22oz, but regrettably not willing to break up six packs and the singles rack was overwhelmingly dusty macros. Though if you are looking for something and the Other Store doesnít have it, consider calling these guys. Between the two, I think you could find anything youíd want that is distributed in OH.
Great beer store with excellent staff. I have found a few beers here that I couldnít find down in Dayton. They are a decent source of scarce/rare beers that they seem to get in from time to time. Iíll definitely be back in here next time Iím in town.

Nice place with lots of beer... and wine! Nice and ever changing selection of locals and out of state micros and imports. If you donít see it ask, they may have it, just not out on the floor! If they donít have it, ask, they will probably get it for you! Staff is knowledgeable and friendly, despite what Corey says! My only complaint is like everyone elseís. The beer is spread out all over the store in various spots, but definitely worth while to stop in to see what theyíve got.
