The Beverage Source is located on West Church right off 16. There is a parking lot in front of the building.

The left side houses the bottle shop, with beer located on shelves and in coolers primarily around the perimeter. The right side is a different room that serves as a small bar, with a couple tables and short bar with a cooler behind it. There is a chalk board in the bar listing the beers on tap.
< br> The bottle shop carries hundreds of brands, including many craft breweries from Ohio like Rockmill, Hoppiní Frog, Jackie Oís, Great Lakes and Buckeye Lake. Many other domestic and imported craft breweries too. The bar has 6 taps and regularly does takeovers from breweries like Jackie Oís, Epic and Brew Kettle. Other breweries are featured like Sierra Nevada, Anchor and Unibroue.

Service both at the store and at the bar was good on my visit (and coincidentally was the same person covering both sides. The guy working was personable and made sure we were taken care of.

Overall this is a good stop in Newark for bottles or something worthwhile on tap.

Stopped in early on a Saturday morning. Nice sized parking lot. Aside from the fellow behind the counter, I was the only person in the store. Bottles are in coolers along the left side wall and on shelves in the back, on some end caps, and a few other places. The selection is pretty nice. They have a lot of stuff I didnít expect to find, but there were also some things I would expect that they didnít have. I was able to get several bottles I had been after, so the trip was a success. Iíll be back, especially since Iím in the area with some regularity.

Unlike the previous raters of this shop, I found the place quite easily. Easily accessible from 16, itís just past the used car dealership on the left, for anyone interested. Service was excellent and very helpful, and I ended up having a good beer discussion during my visit. More local beers than any other store around, including those in Columbus. CBC, Elevator, Buckeye, GLBC, and Thirsty Dog were the in-state brewers I noticed during my visit. By far the best beer store in Newark. Will definitely go back, and would recommend anyone in the Newark/Columbus East/Zanesville area check this place out.

A great little find, and I use that word loosely.This place is a little hard to find.Its in a small industrial park sitting back a bit.Thats the only negative I have.The selection is wonderful, they had Mikeller weasel there.A nice Belgian selection.I had met the owner, Joel, super nice guy and very knowledgable about his business.If you are in Columbus this is a bit off the beaten path but worth going.

Cons: A little difficult to find. Google maps show it in a different location than it actually is. When you do find it, the signage is a little small for the business. I think they might be working on this. Pros: Pretty much every thing else! Spoke to one of the owners, Joel, for several minutes. Very friendly. Very knowledgable. This is smaller store than some of the ones around Columbus, but DEFINITELY a plus plus plus for the area. Pataskala, Granville, Newark and just a short hop from Brews Cafe.They sell both beer and wine, and even though the selection is smaller than some, he did have things I could not find up in my normal store. Nice selection of glassware too, if thats your thing!

I am one of the owners so I am a little biased. The selection of about 300 beers will increase to around 500 by the summer. We just opened a month ago and are building our inventory. But if you are looking for Belgians, American crafts, German, or English beers, this is a must visit.
