I just love this place. Great selection of beer, and a very knowledgeable staff and owners who are frequently there. I had an apartment in Springfield for business travel, so I got an opportunity to see these guys in action over several years. Mark and team do a good job learning your preferences, alerting you to new beers, and letting you know when special stuff arrives. Sometimes, there’s some limited stuff hidden in the back (Kentucky Breakfast Stout casks), so be sure to ask for what’s special. They have a small but good selection of cheese and meats, and have suggested some good pairings that are still memorable - blueberry Stilton with Unibroue Black Currant Ephemere or a nasty farmhouse ale with an equally smelly cheese that took me back to chores on the farm in Virginia where I grew up. Ask to go on their phone list for special food arrivals - hundreds of soft shell crabs disappear the same day they arrive. Beer selection is excellent, with lots of European beers that complement the big guns of Michigan and Ohio. Overall, really a great place that rivals my hometown Bottleworks, but for different reasons.

Very good beer selection, definitely top three in the Dayton area (the others are Belmont and Emporium). Good selections of rarities (like De Dolle Reservas), and Michigan imports, etc. Some Alesmith.

Not bad, quite a few beers I had never seen. As you can imagine, the name implies that the focus is wine, not beer. Although, it is worth the stop if you are in the area.
