Pretty much a wine store with a smaller selection of bottles to go. The selection is decent quality. Small 10 seat bar at the back of the place. Tap selection was decent, some run of the mill stuff but some other cool grabs. My only complaint is some of the taps are mug club only, which sucks for someone just passing through town. No food either which stinks. Overall a decent place to have a beer or two.

Most important: everything is available as singles. (Nov 2015 - not many singles anymore, but, on the flip side, there are now 36 taps, with selections to satisfy any palate. So come to drink it here - or take a growler) Good selection, including some rare Belgians (too bad I can’t justify $30+ for a GOOD bottle of Ale), friendly, helpful service, good variety in twelve taps. Ambiance is toward the wine (the primary product here), but very well done, and in the back there is the bar with all those taps. This place seems a little out of touch with the rust belt character I’ve associated with Lima, but, more power to them for it. Several patrons were there at 4:30 in the afternoon. Worth a stop if you’re nearby.
Vino Bellissimo has moved again, and the new location has a much nicer outdoor area, more wine, more beer, and twelve taps where you can just drink. When I was there the taps were all big, good beers. They sell all the beers in singles, and now you can drink while you browse. Definitely worth checking out while in Lima.
This is the only place I would ever consider buying my good brews from around this area. Their selection is amazing! Over 400 different craft and imported brews to choose from.
What I like the most is the option to buy all singles if you so choose on everything. Not to mention that you can enjoy a nice pint while shopping. Their knowledge us uncontested and their prices are as low as they can go (so they say ;) )
If you live in or around Lima, or are driving through, you should take the time and stop by!
Was greeted by the staff with a friendly hello and welcome for stopping in. As the had a wine tasting going on I told them I was just going to look at the beer selection. (hehehe so I lied to them I already spotted some excellent brews) After a pass through the aisle and a return trip towards the staff I asked if I could get a little help on the beer. The young man set his sample down and helped immediately. I then presented him with my list of things I was looking for and what styles the wife and I liked.
He suggested Great Divide Yeti Stout, Trois Pistoles, and the Ommegang Chocolate Indulgence. And I grabbed a 12 oz bottle of Rochefort Trappist 10.
After ringing me out and bagging me I asked him about Lambics, having seen quite a bit on the forums about them and the young man, who was very well informed, told me the Gueze(sp), was quite sour, but The fruited ones were tasty. I said in what way, he said I have a raspberry on tap. Cool ! I was afforded the taste , smell and mouth feel of my 1st Lambic, quite different. reminded me of a high quality wine cooler. When I said that out loud he said try pouring that Chocolate Indulgence with it 50/50. He said it makes a wonderful Blacxk and Tan!
I can’t say enough good things about this expierence. wow!
Great customer service, spot-on beer recommendations by staff, excellent atmosphere to sit and have a pint while picking your own 6-pack. Overall, wouldn’t think of buying my beer anywhere else in town!
