Stopped in here for a few minutes recently. Iíve always been surprised by the number and quality of ratings for the place, given its location relative to Cincinnati. Itís a small store, with beer mostly in the back. There arenít a ton of singles compared to other stores, and there are some out-of-season selections, but I did manage to find a couple bottles I havenít seen anywhere else. Lots of good six packs; that seems to be their calling card beer-wise. Prices are in line with the rest of the region. I donít know whoís in charge of beer here - not the guy working the register - but itís nice to have a good selection in this somewhat remote area.
Not bad but I wasnít left all that impressed. Ambiance is typical of any garden variety liquor store. Selection was what is to be expected of a craft beer store with a few stand out bottles. Service was fine but not remarkable. Worth checking out if youíre in the neighborhood; not worth going out of your way for.
Bend over. The selection was comparable to Krogerís at best, and the lady spent so much time in the back ignoring me that I probably could have walked out without paying. The beers were so spread out it was difficult to find them all. This place is mostly a liquor store. Also part of the reason why I am giving it such a horrible score is to try to bring the average down to something more appropriate. But if you really like beer drive over to OíBryanís Wine and Spirits.
This place needs to be reviewed again, as itís score is RIDICULOUS (thatís why I went). I was hoping to find a diamond iin the rough, but all I found was coal. The store is set up nicely, and the owner is a really nice guy, but he said he had to stop carrying all of his Belgium beers (Cantillon and 3 Fonteinen), and that he cut the rest of his selection way back because things just werenít selling in his location. NOTHING special here. Too bad :(
I was told this is the place to go if you are north of Cincy. I was a little shoocked to see that their selection is not that big, but they had a few gems that stood out. Big wine selection though. Staff doesnít really know the beer, but the night i went only one person was working.
I saw the rating and immediatly made sure I got a chance to stop in on my way through Cincinnati. I was not blown away but I was not disappointed. I would come back next time I travel through the area

Nice little store in strip mall. While the selection is small it is loaded with nice brews, including some nice Ithica brews. Was expecting more based on the ratings but I can tell this is the type of place where locals go for rare brews. For a business traveler like myself I was not blown away as I look for a large selection of local brews that I have not had. This place had a very nice glass selection. They had 3 or 4 glasses I wanted. Service was great. Settled for a Struise brew and a new Unibroue tulip for the collection.
Yet another Cincinnati area wine and liquor store that stocks a great selection of beer. This shop is nicely organized, and carries a wide selection of domestic and foreign craft beers. I picked up a pack of Founders Imperial Stout (finally!), Goose Island Pere Jacques, an AleSmith Wee Heavy, and a bomber of Nugget Nectar. They had several Belgianís that Iíd never seen before and brews from Great Divide, Moylans, Stone, and Weyerbacher. About a quarter of the selection was in coolers and many singles were for sale. Also noticed a small selection of books about beer and some decent glassware as well. The shop is located in a newer strip mall so thereís ample parking. If youíre in the area, Iíd recommend it.
Any store that stocks three 3F products alongside ten options from Cantillon is definitely worth a stop. While the quantity here is certainly limited the quality more than compensates. Depending on what you are looking for you could spend anywhere from $50 to $250 easily. The best part is that you are allowed to break any sixers to build your own.
found this location this morning. its out of the way a bit but what a find. has a good selection. not just alot of beers, but alot of very good ones. talked to matt ball for sometime, expressed what we wanted and well its going to be every bit worth the drive from louisville to find those hard to find beers.
