When I visited: May 2012.
What I had: Smuttynose Finest Kind IPA (draught), Chicken Salad Sandwich & Chips, sandwich and ginger ale for my better half.
What I bought: Founders Double Trouble, Samuel Adams Dark Depths Baltic Porter, Ballast Point Big Eye IPA, Victory, Stone and Dogfish Head Saison du Buff.
What I liked: Respectable bottle selection, attractive wooden interior (looks recently renovated), pleasant covered patio overlooking the street scape, competent and efficient staff, decent prices, tasty no frills food.
What I disliked: Must have missed something - like another room that I wasn’t aware of? - as the selection was tiny compared to most other U.S. beer stores that I’ve been to. Seemed like the stock was running thin as there were several empty spaces on the shelves. Still, I was very happy with the beers that I purchased (especially the Big Eye).
Would I go back? Yes.
Overall Rating: 80
Located down the street from the awesome Melt, Rozi’s is set in a cool older building with nice wooden floors, a wall of coolers, a handfull of taps, and a beer selection that accounts for probably 2/5 of the entire floor space. The staff, in addition to being the friendliest people I met while in Northern Ohio, were extremely knowledgeable and were also willing to recommend based on tastes.
In three trips to Cleveland I’ve been here twice - the guys provide good service answering my questions, they have some beers on draft(I did not take advantage), the selection is very good and prices are good too. Highly recommended for Cleveland area beer purchases.
Flew in from Dallas and headed straight to Rozi’s. Short car ride from the airport. Great selection and helpful staff. Picked-up a bunch of beers to ship home. If you visit, take a walk up the same street to Melt, which is a sandwich shop with a HUGE selection of beers to have with your lunch. Cheers!
My favorite liquor store. Was visiting a friend in Cleveland, and he suggested we go to Rozi’s. Now (because I live 4 hours away) I dream of Rozi’s. I look at the their f’book page daily...for torture, I guess.
Nice spot with a pretty good selection. I’m spoiled with my Philly bottle shops, but they had a good amount of locals I cant get at home, and a pretty nice selection of Euro beers. You can break any six pack you see. The staff is very nice and more than happy to help. Not sure how it compares to other places in Cleveland but it was great for what I needed, since I happened to be in Lakewood anyway.
They may call themselves a wine and beer house but half of the product is craft beer. They have over 300 bottles which focuses on local craft, West coast, and Belgians. They also have some homebrew supplies for sale and branded glassware. In addition they have 8 taps from which they fill growlers and sell samples. They seem like really nice people as well.
This place is great. Stopped by on my way to DLD to find some AleSmth and was able to pick up all of their "bigger" beers: speedway stout, wee heavy, old numbskull, etc. They have a fantastic selection of micro brews and a huge amount of wine and liquor. They carry a ton of harder to find local stuff as well. Service was great, I was asked if I needed help within 30 seconds of being in the store and was directed towards the local craft beer. A little bit expensive, but besides that, no complaints.
My son and I visited the Saturday before Easter, with indefinite plans at the in-laws. Turns out we had more time than anticipated, so we got to kill some time at Rozi’s. And I am glad we did - a fun shop well worth a lengthy visit.
This is a cool-looking place with really nice ambiance. Wood floors, and a cool corner location in Lakewood.
They serve beer here! I had a great TBK White Rajah and a Diabolical IPA as I shopped. Both were fresh and delicious.
While the space in this shop is distorted to wine, there is a ton of stuff here for craftbeer fans. Great selection.
There is a limited supply of homebrew stuff here. I bought a few things, but I’ve heard that turn here can be a little slow, and I wouldn’t consider it a 1-stop-shop.
I took more of Cory and Brian’s time than I had a right to, although to be fair I was trying to generate some ideas to help Cory get more homebrewer traffic.
It’s retail pricing here; nothing’s really on discount, but I wouldn’t say it is out of line with other retail stores in Ohio.
All-in-all, I really enjoyed visiting and would recommend to others!
