Definitely not the prettiest or most organized place, but itís the selection that matters most and this place has an excellent selection of beer. Weíve spent a long time in this place and spent quite a bit of money too. Thereís always something weíve never had and they have all our favorites too. Donít forget to walk in the cooler - it doesnít seem like you are allowed, but they donít care - just walk in! Probably one at a time though as itís stocked so full of beer! I canít recommend this place enough. Oh and itís looks like a good selection of wine too, but I know nothing about wine. And Skyline is right next door too!

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.

Definitely worth stopping in to search for some hard to find beers. The focus is on wine, but towards the back there is a very nice selection of brews from AleSmith, Bellls, Dogfish Head, Founders, Rochefort, Southern Tier, and many more. Organization is lacking, but some (including myself) are happy to browse the entire selection, gazing carefully at each label to be sure not to miss anything. About half of the selection is refrigerated in several coolers (one of them walk-in) and thereís also a table towards the front of the store with single 12oz bottles for sale. Purchased a Speedway Stout, Choklat, and a pack of Hopslam during my last visit. Always something worthwhile here, especially if youíre a big fan of AleSmith.

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.

Little gem of a place well known to the locals of Montgomery / Silverton area. If you are not from the area, you probably donít know about it. Thatís too bad too. This place has a HUGE selection that is only rivaled by places like Jungle Jimís and The Party Source. Iíve heard of other local places in Cincy that offer great selections as well, but these places are usually only known to locals. Beer service / knowledge varies quite a bit depending who is working there at the time.

A hidden gem in the Cincinnati area. Nice enough looking establishment. Next to a Skyline Chili. Very friendly staff. better organized than past reviews seem to suggest. Nice selection which featured countless bottles Iíve not seen in other stores. Prices are as expected. Check this place out; I can almost guarantee that you will be pleasantly surprised.

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.

Nice selection of beers, some chilled but most not. The gentleman behind the counter seemed to be more of a wine guy, but offered to help in any way he could including special orders. Good store.

The other stop on my Cincy roadtrip. VERY nice little store! Mostly wine, but lots and lots of fun stuff in the back! Staff was very helpful, talked beer with us for a few minutes, and offered some good tips on good beer. Iím from Indiana, so getting to walk in a beer cave is still new to me, pretty damn fun!

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.
