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.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

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.

One of my go to shops in Columbus. I always recommend this to people from out of town as it is located very close to I-71.
You are usually welcomed by one of the few dogs who hang out here. The place is pretty well organized, which is a good thing because there is a lot of damn beer here.
The first isle is English/Scottish/Irish capped with German. The left side of the middle isle is all Belgian. Some rarities pop up here so keep your eyes peeled. The rest is all American craft.
The vast majority of the beer here is in a bomber or 750ml. This really helps if you are looking for a specific beer that is in a larger format. You know Palmers will have it.
This is the place to go for Jolly Pumpkin, Alesmith, Southern Tier, Smuttynose and Hoppin Frog.
Their glass selection is growing and getting pretty nice. Duvel tulips have been in stock recently.

This place has a large bottle selection and often has rarities that cannot be found elsewhere. Always on my list of stops when beer-hunting.

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.

Very nice selection of hard-to-find beers, seasonals, and rare beers. Freindly staff and pretty knowledgible. I make it a point to stop in and buy a new beer if Iím in the neighborhood.

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.

Decent sized place not too far off the highway. Not a humongous selection, but again the focus here is on quality. Alesmith, Allagash, Stone, Weyerbracher, some Ohio stuff. Clean, friendly service.
