I’m biased but this is the nostalgic beverage store of my youth (grew up a few blocks from here in the 1970s-80s, they’d always give me a pretzel when I went in there with my dad as a kid). I moved away 25 years ago (joined the army, never looked back, now living in my surrogate Cleveland --- Chicago’s South Side). Anyway, the Speier family built this place with family pride, and while it’s true, there are bigger joints to buy beer at in the Greater Cleveland area, Warehouse Beverage is an excellent treasure trove of bottles and hombres supplies to boot. It is also where I got started and out of respect to my roots I always stop in when I’m back in the old neighborhood (even if South Euclid has basically gone to hell in a handcart).

underwhelming bottleshop. kinda dumpy. plenty of 6packs, but hardly any singlea. prices seemed on the high side.
Place was off a fairly well travelled road, not the prettiest from the outside but full of goodies on the inside. They have a great selection and the prices were reasonable, had a locked cabinet of beers but there were lot of beers outside of the box that were more expensive, not sure what that was all about, but overall I would certianly recommend a visit to this place
Stacks of cases and wine as you enter, mostly newer deliveries. Owner was able to answer questions on when things got shipped - steered me off an IPA I would have bought if it were fresher since it has been there awhile. Good selection of bombers and 6 packs - Imports a bit lacking though the Ohio area beer are in full force - Hoppin Frog, Great Lakes, etc. Founders, Bell, Stone, Alesmith, Ballast point, etc. Some things that Buffalo does not get. Prices were a bit high on imports but very reasonable on US beers. I’ll be back.
This is a really cool store- parking in the front. Inside are shelves and shelves of beer. Lots of singles, lots in the refrigerators. When I was there they had Alesmith and Hair of the Dog. Lots of Ohio locals, Great Lakes, even some lambic. Hug selection that takes away to sift through. Lots of glassware for sale. One of my favorite places to stop by when I’ve visiting my homeboys in Cleveland. However, you must check their facebook page for new inventory!
Went here coming home from cleveland clinic 5-21-12. Great selection of some of the best brewers (as rated) in the world. Alesmith in 22’s, avery in 22’s, mikkellar, bells (only saw six or 4 packs), just to name some. I came mostly to see if three floyds was on hand and not to my surprise sold out. They pack a punch of great beers in a small space. About 70% of the beers are meant to be bought in six or 4 packs. Good service and crew. Takes about 15 to 20 minutes from the highway to get here through all the lights and traffic.
Great place. Selection is pretty extensive, if not all that I might want it to be, what with all the selection available now-a-days, but a great selection of beers and wines none-the-less. Domestic craft brew section and european section. Can buy individuals beers and make your own pack. Have a facebook presence where they constantly announce new beers in stock, so you can grab the latest. Run by three brothers who are very personable, likable, helpful, and knowledgeable. Have a small selection of brewing ingredients and equipment if you brew and are in a pinch. Great with my kids when I go in, and the kids always look forward to the pretzel rod they get when I’m in the store.
