Dense collection of good beers. Prices are a little high, but to be expected in this kind of market. Given that there are so many other great stops (Jeniís ice cream) in the North Market, this is a must see.

I agree with everything thatís been written in these reviews about North Market - itís a must-see destination for anyone going to Columbus, full of different vendors of high-quality prepared food and groceries. And a trip to North Market wouldnít be complete if I didnít spend some time browsing the great selection of singles and small-packs at the entrance to Grapes of Mirth. However, as youíd guess from the name, itís really a wine store. The cold six-packs are pretty obviously an afterthought, squirreled away in the back corner and containing mostly things youíd find in any worthwhile grocery store. So, on a beer site, I canít give Grapes of Mirth the high rating I might give on a tourist destination or wine drinkersí site.

Stopped in here finally yesterday in the midst of an Ohio State game that flooded downtown Columbus with people. Located in North Market, which might be my favorite destination in Columbus, it has itís on little niche on the left side as you walk in the doors. Itís a small little space but it packs a punch with the amount of brewers it showcases. My friend and I picked up a saison Fantome, Lagunitas Lucky 13, Cantillon Iris, Hoppiní Frog Frogís Hollow Double Pumpkin, Cantillon Classic Gueze, St. Bernardus Tripel, Ouerbier Stille Nacht and Stone RIS. Helpful staff, lots of other fun stuff to look around, itís tiny so you have to maneuver carefully through the racks. We went the same day as the microbrew fest but didnít stay -- Iíd been DD last year for friends and the selection wasnít so hot and it was the same line-u this year. They also had one bottle left (as display) of the Alesmith/Mikkeler/Stone Belgian Style Tripel. Had a bunch of Cantillon, some 3 Fontenien and De Ranke Kriek. North Market itself is absolutely awesome. Iím a total sucker for markets and this one met and exceeded my expectations, very large, friendly, kids and families all over the place, great food, hot sauce spot, produce and flowers. Canít wait to go back again this weekend.

How the hell has this place not yet been rated. It is a very cool market (like a Whole Foods) with great food and delicious aromas in the air... not to mention an awesome beer selection. The selection is not that huge but is very high quality. I dont remember exactly what they had, but I saw 2 different Struises there (for 6 bucks a pop!). Lots of singles (11.2 oz, 12.oz, bombers, and 750 ml) and some 6 packs. They hosted the Columbus Micro Brew Festival, which I went to last night and which is still going on tonight. Very cool family friendly spot, and it is HUGE. For me, it is now joining From The Vine as a definite stop in Columbus from now on. (Update) just went today and found some great deals including 6.99 on struiselensis (sp). They have almost all cantillon available in the states and plenty of other belgians. Alesmith speedway and numbskull, De Dolle Teve, and plenty others I wasnít expecting. Not a huge selection but good for sure.

Best selection I could find within walking distance of my hotel. I am a little concerned about the likelihood of the beer being light struck. I bought several things that enabled me to avoid two things. 1) the walk to the Bodega, and 2) the crazy hotel bar prices. PS, the food in the North Market is very nice.

Across from Barleyís ale house in a plaza of boutiques. Mostly a wine boutique store, with a good small selection of most of the best beers that come through the area. Picked up some Alesmith, Hoppiní Frog, and other locals like Bison. Attractive, fair location, decent hours. Good for a quick pick up of stuff, and convenient for getting other groceries etc. Certainly better than shopping in most supermarkets. Good service.Fair prices.

Located in some kind of marketplace building with other food speciality business. Very small store and the wine occupies more than half of the space. Super friendly service. The selection is limited but it is a nice selection. Seems to be a recurrent theme in those north-center states, small beer stores but not crap. I was able to score a few bottles (JP BiŤre de Mars, Hopping Frog Silky Porter, Signature Ale, others) that I didnít see in the bigger From The Vine a bit up north Columbus or the Roziís up in Cleveland. You wonít find any rare beer there as the selection is limited and I donít think they have much stock-room but the store is well-located, the service is super-friendly and the selection is pleasantly small.

I was in the greater Columbus area for some work stuff and a fine gentleman from The Other Site clued me in that Grapes might have one remaining 4-pack of KBS. Indeed, he was right, so I headed down there with a friend and found a really wonderful nook of boozy splendor in Columbusí North Market. The fine fellow (whose name Iím sorry I didnít catch) working was knowledgable, pleasant, and made this visit very fine. Also picked up a couple local bombers. Good vibe, great selection, a must visit in C-bus. Rock on.
