Itís your basic liquor store vibe. They sell craft beer and wine with the most emphasis seemingly placed on the beer. They have a number of coolers for six packs and large number of regional and international craft beers. They donít have any kind of make your own sixer selection which is a bit of a surprise given the care that went into selecting their beers. (Three Floyds, Alesmith, DFH, Epic etc.) The prices are pretty good.

Palmer's lies north of the OSU campus area. You are definitely only going to find this place thanks to word-of mouth. They have a small storefront parking lot and don't ever seem to be too busy so there should be no problems there.

It is worth seeking out though because the selection is one of the better ones I have come across for such a small store. There was a definite focus on micros and Belgians (I saw Duvel, Rochefort, Bruegel, Chimay etc). Some cooler space as well, along with a decent selection of singles and a few various samplers.

The staff was accommodating. Overall there is plenty here to keep a beer lover busy for awhile.

Visited early afternoon on a Wednesday. Stand alone cinder block building a short distance from downtown Columbus. The beer is organized by country on racks for the most part in the middle of the store. There were also some craft 6 packs in a cooler on the side. The selection was pretty good, quite a few labels you donít normally see. Really no service to speak of, though I didnít seek any out. Nice enough store.

In Columbus for holiday so I stopped by one of the highest rated beer stores to compare to Chicago. While its nothing remotley close to Binnyís in LP, its pretty damn good for Columbus. They have 4 rows of beer, placed appropriately by region and nice great selection of West Coast brews I canít get in Chicago. Great selection of Stone and Alesmith, then some great semi locals like Troegs then an awesome Yeti seasonal pack. The price is great, I got a great bottle of Cantillon for 15, more like 29 in Chicago.

When I visited: Late January 2013. What I bought: Sixpoint Bengali Tiger, The Brew Kettle Old 21 Imperial IPA, Bellís Third Coast Old Ale, Bellís HopSlam Ale, and Sixpoint Resin. What I liked: Grabbed some nice finds and everything was very fresh, so I was certainly happy with the quality of my purchases. What I disliked: LOTS of empty space on the shelves, took about 15 minutes for the cashier to ask me if I needed any help, smaller selection than Weilandís with seemingly higher prices, just okay in comparison to other U.S. craft beer stores. Would I go back? Maybe. Overall Rating: 68

The sign outside says "Beer: more than just breakfast food." Inside they have great selections of Lagunitas, Stone, Southern Tier, AleSmith, Avery, Seasonals galore, rarities intermixed. Treasures are around, but the staff doesnít seem to know about them. They left me alone and talked about politics the whole time I was there and could not suggest any beers to me. I will stop by when I have time to peruse. Prices were average to a bit below the rest of the places I visited.

Small store, very easy to find, plenty of parking. I was greeted very enthusiasticly upon entering by a young guy and gal at the counter. They offered their assistance but otherwise left me alone...I really enjoyed this place. Found several new, different things here that I hadnt seen at a few other stores. They seemed to carry more Three Floyds then any other place I have visited so far ,as well as some additional Ohio brewers. I really liked this place and will definitely stop by again. Prices were pretty on par with other stores.

Nice wide selection, Oak Aged Yeti, and quite a few other beers that I had not yet seen in Columbus. No Westy 12 this time, but plenty to keep you busy for a while.

Palmers used to be a bit better, but they just donít seem to move much product and I usually find lots of old pales and ipas on the shelves. Donít have anything you caníf find at most of local grocery stores, aside from random Three Floyds. Good people, but Iíve stopped visiting.

Small little store north of campus. Primarily a wine store but the beer appears to be up front in the first 2 rows. Some beers here that canít be found elsewhere in Columbus. A nice selection of Belgians.. Good selection of beers from Founders and Arcadia as well. Staff was friendly and willing to help. Worth a stop if you are in the area. Close to Pace-Hi and Andyís too.
