Stopped here to look around during a quick motorcycle ride. Store front package store with good beer row and some single bottles in cooler. Staff was young, but interested and helpful. Selection is very good and found many brews I have not seen in Cincy. Good location and I will return with my car to take some home.
In Nati visting a friend and of course I look up the top place, thankfully and awesomely it was 2 miles from this house. I came in not expecting much because its Cincy but I came away shockingly surprised. They have two rows of beer, at least a hundred choices. American craft is well represented especially the midwest, tons of bells, troets, weyerbacher. International is ok, nothing special, the staples but nothing crazy. You can select singles out of all 6 packs which is awesome. I found 2007 pannepot for 6 bucks a bottle. Service was nice and the prices were the best. Everything was at least 20% below what is in Chicago. A must stop for beer when in Cincinnati.
Tucked into the shopping center just east of Edwards on Madison (one of Cincinnatiís busiest intersections), I canít believe I hadnít been here before. The place has the look and feel of a typical liquor store upon entering, but swing around the registers to the front wall on the wine side of the store, and there is a seriously impressive beer aisle. Big selections of Allagash, Dogfish Head, Great Lakes, Goose Island, Unibroue, AleSmith, Rogue, Bellís, Brooklyn, Founders, Thirsty Dog, Hoppiní Frog, Avery, Stone, Southern Tier, and many more. Lots of Belgians, and some Cantillon and Bruery selections as well. There are stray bottles and boxes all over the place, so it might take some time to dig and see everything.
Big dedicated free parking lot. Pick up store atmosphere. Two ladies gossiping and never leaving the cash registers the whole time I was there. Nothing rare, but seems off the craft beer radar for the most part. Beer is mostly on the left. I picked up a couple bottles. Old stock in some cases, one should pay attention. Prices were pretty good. Organization is pretty bad, boxes on the floor in the back left, but it seems you can get a single of anything in the store. If I had time I would go back.
Strip mall liquor store that crams as much as possible into its space, making it a fun place to snoop around. Service is hard to call - no-one assisted while I was browsing, but the register was quick and efficient. Canít call value, either, as prices match the competition (does the govíment set prices?) Overall, a really good selection, but there are other better places nearby (Dutchís, Party Source, et al.)

randomly went in one night with my boss while working. Went back when not working. WOW! Amazing how much there is in such a small aisle. Claustrophobia alert. in about a minute I found six Ohio beers Iíve never had and made my own 6-pack. I will definitely be back. There has never been a time I went in there and there hasnít been a person who smells very strongly of quality weed.

I stop in from time to time to talk with the owner&son (Mike and Nelson) and of course buy beer, they are really nice people. They have a similar selection of domestic beer to Kellerís IGA:Victory, Stone, Bells, Arcadia, Founders, Smuttynose, Great Lakes, 3 Floyds(yup Dreadnaught!) etc and a better selection of imports. Limited selection of singles. Large selection of wine and a moderate selection of spirits. They will take request too!
The few times i have been here, i have enjoyed the selection and the service. The staff is not afraid to offer suggestions if you tell them what styles you like. I just wish this place was closer to the north end of Cincinnati.
I always forget about Hyde Park Wine and Spirits. It is another state liquor store, but they actually have a decent selection of wine and beer as well. Actually, their beer selection much better than most in the area. In addition to the regular micro, craft, import, and macro beers that are available in the area, they also have vintage beer (e.g. Expedition Stout) and other retired beers (e.g. Avery Ten). A lot of the stuff available is in 6-packs that canít be broken, but they also have lots of 22 oz and 750 mL singles as well. There is a parking lot, but area traffic can sometimes be challenging. I enjoy stopping in to see what I might find hidden on the shelves...
