Work in the Kenwood area and had not stopped here before. Primarily a wine shop, but have good beer selection of domestic and imports. Ask Doug about selected brews and called the rep on his cell and discussed delivery. Found three beers on my watchlist. Well worth a regular stop when in the area.

Got into Cincinnati at about 11 on a Friday night and I knew this place was open until midnight, giving me my only chance to get some good stuff before a quick, busy weekend in town. Picked up some AleSmith, Buckeye, and a few others not available in Missouri, where I live. The place isnít much to look at inside or out, but no inch of square footage is wasted. Wine racks are everywhere. A table with some mix-a-six options is on the left, with boxes surrounding it. Beer refrigerators line the left wall, with the beer shelves on the left side of the store. I wanted a YuleSmith Summer, and while they had it, it was the 2009 and not 2010 edition. Tons of craft stuff available here- TBK, DFH, Stone, Bellís, 21st Amendment, Hoppiní Frog, Two Brothers, Allagash, The Bruery, Ithaca, and lots more. The service is friendly, the hours are great- just be sure to check the dates on bottles if available.

Surprised by how low the ratings are for this place. Great selection of regional brews and good prices. Kind of stuff all over the place but they had 4 times the beer that Dilly Deli had. Picked up some Clipper City BA Barley wine. Have decent selection of singles. Found some beers here that I did not see anywhere else in OH. Nice store.

Iím not a big fan of this place. Iíve been several times, and theyíre always out of the Belgiums Iím looking for (which is supposed to be their specialty). And on top of it, the staff hasnít been all that friendly.

If you live in the area of Montgomery, Indian Hills, Maderia, Amberly, Silverton this is your place to beer shop. Large selection of wine and a fairly good selection of beers especially Imports. Good but not stellar selection of micros. Service in pretty good.

The Root Cellar specializes in wine and port, but they also have quite a bit of beer. However, it is hit or miss on what might be there. Sometimes you can find some rare or vintage stuff, but that is not typical. I always like to stop by just to try my luck though! Also be sure to check out their stash of bargain/sale beer...

Quirky store in a small strip mall not far from the Kenwood Towne Center. Generally a pretty good selection of beer. The problem is that finding beers can be a challenge. Some bottles are in 3 different places with not much rhyme nor reason to the organization. I still stop by from time to time.

When Iím travelling to Ohio, stopping at Skyline Chli multiple times is mandatory. The Skyline on Montgomery Road is frequently populated by the founders, so itís a historic stop. And right next door is this great little wine and spirits store with a super beer selecton. Found my current favorite Schneider Brooklyner plus lots of good stuff from the big guns Southern Tier, AleSmith, Dogfish, Founders, etc. Service was 5050 - one guy was great, other didnít appear to care. Guess Iím spoiled by the crew at Wine Works up the road in Springfield. Anyhow, best place for retail beer that Iíve found in Cincinatti.

Ye olde reliable Root Cellar. A nice wine store that carries a decent stock of imports and micros. Not the most impressive of stores compared to whatís around, however they do get most of the same stuff that the other stores around town get. Plus they more than likely will be the last place to have a new popular beer. I have had success getting both newly released brews as well as some beers that have been missed and purchased about a year later. The staff is courteous and friendly. Good wine selection. The beers are split between cold fridges and store shelve space. I grew up in this area only a couple miles from the store so itís very convenient and can always find something to drink.

Located on Montgomery Road not too far south of Kenwood Towne Center and Trader Joeís--a short drive off I-71 if youíre passing through the area. Beer is on shelves, tables, the floor, in coolers, and seemingly sprouting out of the walls--a very large selection for a relatively small space. As others have mentioned, you can always find brews that arenít available elsewhere in the Cincinnati area. Itís on the other side of town from me but Iím going to make it my duty to stop in more often.
