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.

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!

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...

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.

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.

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.

Ditto what John (JCW) said. I picked up a hard to find Dreadnaught here. Good selection and good location.

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.
