Went on a Saturday afternoon. Shop at the end of a strip mall. Wine/Beer, with the beer mostly on the right side of the place. Open, with shelves and coolers towards the back. Very nice selection, some Belgian breweries I have not seen in other stores. Price is a little high, but the selection, for the Columbus area was good. I would like to see a more diverse group of domestics, but overall a good beer store.

(Visit weekly, but last time was 1/30/13) Aficionado’s is managed and run by their owners Kevin and Star. Their store offers an increasingly good selection of beers of which the majority have scores on Ratebeer of over 90. Kevin makes your selection easy, by indicating the Ratebeer rating under each beer.
Since opening a few months ago they have greatly improved the asthetics of the store, the quality of beers offered, and have had numerous tastings with great turn outs.
They have a mailing list which I recommend you get on. They use this list to notify customers of special beers that have arrived and any planned beer tasting events.
Afcionado’s also offers a good selection wines and cigars.

(Visited 12/2012): Aficionado’s opened recently, occupying the space formerly taken by From The Vine which in my opinion was one of the best beer stores on the north side. There is a good-sized parking lot in front of the plaza.
The interior is laid out with the beer on shelves and in coolers in the right rear of the store. The rest of the space is devoted to wine.
The beer selection is pretty good. Ohio breweries like Elevator, GLBC, CBC, Hoppin’ Frog and Thirsty Dog are in stock, as are domestic craft brewers such as Bruery, Stone, Rogue and Victory.
Service on my first visit was good. The owner was out on the floor talking with customers and the checkout person was friendly. They also do periodic tastings and events (an ’08-’12 Vertical Epic tasting recently for example).
Overall this is a good store to have in the area, and I am glad they are invested in promoting craft beer.

Aficionado’s was previously called From The Vine. New owners are adding a large walk-in beer cooler and plan to DOUBLE the craft beer selection! The had Stone Enjoy By, and Bell’s 11, but most were already on reserve. Great place.
