The only thing against this store is the busy location, other than that the selection is amazing! Two full isles of amazing beer. Plenty of 22s & 750s also. Plus they allow busting off sixers. We had excellent service that offered suggestions & showed new arrivals. Great store!
Visited on a Tuesday night. Located on a busy intersection, in Hyde Park. In a worn down strip mall. The store itself feels like a grimy neighborhood store, though in inside the the beer selection is extensive. The beers are located warm, immediately to the left, and the whole collection is scattered and disheveled. Part of the reason for this, every beer is available as a single which was exactly what I was looking for. The selection is spread in a few different places, so keep digging around. The beer guy was very friendly, and this seemed to be a place locals shop. Fair prices. Fun place, exactly what I was looking for that night.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Big dedicated free parking lot. Pick up store atmosphere. Two ladies gossiping and never leaving the cash registers the whole time I was there. Nothing rare, but seems off the craft beer radar for the most part. Beer is mostly on the left. I picked up a couple bottles. Old stock in some cases, one should pay attention. Prices were pretty good. Organization is pretty bad, boxes on the floor in the back left, but it seems you can get a single of anything in the store. If I had time I would go back.
Strip mall liquor store that crams as much as possible into its space, making it a fun place to snoop around. Service is hard to call - no-one assisted while I was browsing, but the register was quick and efficient. Can’t call value, either, as prices match the competition (does the gov’ment set prices?) Overall, a really good selection, but there are other better places nearby (Dutch’s, Party Source, et al.)

randomly went in one night with my boss while working. Went back when not working. WOW! Amazing how much there is in such a small aisle. Claustrophobia alert. in about a minute I found six Ohio beers I’ve never had and made my own 6-pack. I will definitely be back. There has never been a time I went in there and there hasn’t been a person who smells very strongly of quality weed.
Really enjoy this store. Great staff; friendly, knowledgeable. Great selection; always has new featured beers. Their pricing seems to be more competitive than lots of other places. My favorite thing about the store is that all packs can be broken up into singles. My least favorite thing is that the inventory doesn’t move fast. Lots of beer sits on the shelves for a while. Lots.
My buddy Nate turned me on to this place. Great single bottle selection and will break six-packs for you. They carry a ton of stuff you can’t get in Kentucky which is nice since it is right off the exit.
The few times i have been here, i have enjoyed the selection and the service. The staff is not afraid to offer suggestions if you tell them what styles you like. I just wish this place was closer to the north end of Cincinnati.
