Best beer store I’ve ever been in. Mike "The Swami" of suds will direct you wherever your tastes inquire. Lots of individual beers and 22ozs spread the varieties. Rare, expansive styles and regions provide a great variety of options. I’m a local and would argue it’s one of the best I’ve seen living across the country.

Great spot in a unique town. Staff is very helpful, and was eager to to talk shop with me. They told me they could also fill orders pretty quickly.
There were so many beers (they told me more than 400), I was easily entertained, and it was hard to choose. Huge selection of my favorites (American craft), plus tons of Belgians and Europeans.
Go there now!

Right across from the falls, and a definite stop to go if you are in or near Solon. The staff there is almost always on the ball, unless to local beer nuts are both not there, in which case you are left with the wine nuts. They also know what they are about to get in within the coming weeks, so you can do your homework if on a budget (for us poor college folk.) The prices are generally reasonable, unless you want a single of something limited, then you might be paying $3-4 for a ImortAle. And as for food, their cheese is exelent, good varienty off different stuff you will never find at Wal Mart.

Nice place with lots of beer... and wine! Nice and ever changing selection of locals and out of state micros and imports. If you don’t see it ask, they may have it, just not out on the floor! If they don’t have it, ask, they will probably get it for you! Staff is knowledgeable and friendly, despite what Corey says! My only complaint is like everyone else’s. The beer is spread out all over the store in various spots, but definitely worth while to stop in to see what they’ve got.

I have been going to Chuck’s for a couple of years and am continually pleased with what I see. Their selection of beer is far above average, but service is where they really shine. They also always seem to have something I am looking for, such as a few Alesmith brews and a B.O.R.I.S. The Crusher I just picked up. Be sure to ask because they have more than it appears. If you’re east of Cleveland for any reason I suggest stopping here. The gourmet food is also a plus.
Been there a few times now. Wonderful store, great and cheerful service. Selection is really nice though kind of spread out. They seem to have plenty of events and are plenty knowledgeable. Prices are better than what I have found elsewhere. This has become my new place to buy beer.
This palce in in Chagrin Falls, a quaint village on the eastern outskirts of Cleveland, just a few miles from where I grew up. My two brothers live close by, and I had the occassion to stop in on a recent visit. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The selection was as good as I’ve seen, although the owner was lamenting the fact that their stock and selection was way down because of the time of the year. Could have fooled me. My brother is familiar with the place, and asked about going in the cooler which is not visible to patrons. They had a bunch of stuff back there that was not out front. Some Alesmith, Jolly Pumpkin, etc. Prices were reasonable for most of the widely available micros, but maybe a little high on some of the Belgians and other "high end" micros. On the down side, they don’t split six packs, and had only a very limited selection of 12 oz. singles. My observation was if it’s distributed in Ohio, these guys have probably got it, unless the distributor is out of it. Certainly worth a visit if you’re in the Cleveland area.
Since I’ve started going to Chuck’s I have yet to be disappointed. Every time I can’t see something that I’m looking for all I have to do is ask and there it is. If this continues, I’ll never think of going anywhere else.
This was a place we came to when we were visiting my parents. It is awesome. They have a very large selection plus many other things. If you talk to the owner and show him you are not a creep, he’ll let you into the "secret back room" and you can check out some better selections. They have glassware, wine, cheese and other random stuff there too. I really recommend this place, plus the Chagrin Falls area is a really nice place to visit.
Great beer store with excellent staff. I have found a few beers here that I couldn’t find down in Dayton. They are a decent source of scarce/rare beers that they seem to get in from time to time. I’ll definitely be back in here next time I’m in town.
