Visited Palmer's yesterday looking for some southern tier ubersun. They had the Southern Tier and MUCH MUCH more! Full lines of Bell's, ST, Rogue, Sam Adams (including a mix and match 6 pack for $5!), etc. Lots of Belgians and bombers.Also the prices for the bombers were a good $2-$3 cheaper than most places. Service was great. Decent selection of wine as well. Can't believe I never visited this place before. Plenty of parking out front, easy to find. It will now be my #1 stop for all of my beer purchases.

This was one of the better places I went to buy beer in Columbus. It was easy to find and right off one of the highways. I entered and immediately knew this was a beer store. They have lots of product on display and the wine is in the back of the store (yes!). The beer on special is on display right next to the register. I think I paid $4.99 for some Bear Republic brew (Hop Rod & Black Bear Stout).They carry lots of stuff and it's all very well priced. I also got some Jolly Pumpkin which some of the other stores didn't have that much of. They were $7.99 for a 750ml. I had to use the bathroom and the girl working was very nice to let me use it. She asked if I needed help but I refused because I like to look around for quite a bit. They had a long row of coolers that housed all the cold beer. This is an awesome place that deserves high marks. It's always good to support the local guy who is trying to get good beer at good prices to the consumer.

I just discovered this place recently, and I'm pretty excited to have just bought a house only a few blocks away. I really can't think of anything bad to say about this place. Easy to find, with a small parking lot out front. They have tons of beer, it's all at fair prices, and the folks there are pretty nice. The store features wine and beer, and there's plenty of both. There are two solid aisles just of beer - mostly bombers and six-packs. In addition, there are a couple coolers full of stuff, and little stands of beer scattered throughout the store. I ended up wandering through the whole place b/c I kept finding little stacks of beer here and there.
Again, prices are great. Found lots of stuff from Founder's, Bell's, Stone, Three Floyd's, a whole section of German and Belgians, plus a lot more. My description doesn't do it justice.
Basically, the location, prices, and the nice folks there will make this my regular stop.

Palmer's is one of the best beer stores in the Columbus area. I always know they will be able to access the hard-to-find beers that make their way to the Columbus market, and I have found them to be very knowledgeable about their beer selection. The place is well-maintained and the staff are always willing to offer to help you in any way they can.
They carry an excellent selection of Belgian beers, and I always know they will be able to have an decent amount of midwest brews when others are only given limited quantities.
If you plan to visit Columbus to buy beer, you should definitely add Palmer's to your list of places to visit.

Stopped in here driving from NC to Detroit after check to see what places got good reviews along the way from Beer Advocate and could not have been happier to stop in. Lucky for me I showed up on beer delivery day, so not only did I have the option to pick from their wide variety of beers, I had the option to pick from beers right off the truck. Emily was very knowledgable of all their beers and was a big help in my selection. Top notch place and if you're in Ohio and get the chance, you have to stop in here.

Finally got to check out Palmers the other day and I was not disappointed. A very unassuming store off indianola and oakland. When you walk in you are greeted by a very nice bull dog that apparently guards the shop. Talk a left and you can see plenty of english and belgian imports of all styles, walk a little farther down the line and you can see just about all the founders beer you will ever see in Ohio. If you start looking at the second row you will see just about every Southern Tier offering that is ever exported. They also carry the largest selection of jolly pumpkin I have ever seen. I went there last week and they were just unboxing some green flash beers. First time I have ever seen those in Ohio, so we picked up as much as we could.

Palmer's beverage center may look average from the outside, but immediately upon entering the store it is obvious that this is an outstanding store. The atmosphere is good, the selection is awesome, and the prices are fair. The only downside is that they do not have any singles to make your own six pack, so I had to leave the store with a lot less variety than I would have liked. They do have an excellent selection of bombers and most are very fairly priced. The 6-packs were a good value as well, although I did see a few here and there that were overpriced. On the whole, the value is great though. The employees were very helpful and very knowledgeable, and I was able to pick up Stone vertical epic 2010 that was properly cellared for the past year to go with the 2011 I bought as well. It is a great store and a great place to find good beer.

I stopped in here on a trip through Columbus based on the reviews here. I was very pleasantly surprised.
There is a wide selection of great beers, mostly in bombers. I saw Avery, Founders, Goose Island (Nightstalker, no less), Troegs, Stone, etc. There is also a cooler selling cold singles of decent beer.
The reason I stopped in was to try to find something VERY local to Columbus. After spending a few minutes speaking with Emily (who I think is in charge of the beer section), who was awesome and very helpful, I decided on a four pack of Elevator Brewing Horny Goat, which ruled.
Great place, great people, great selection, and very reasonable prices.

One of the best beer stores in Columbus. Easily accessible off of the I-71/North Broadway Exit (1 block north of N. Broadway on Indianola on your left) across the street from a Burger King.
The craft/micro selection is solid. They carry the usual hitters along with plenty of bombers. The cold case is well stocked and they typically have many of the hard to find offerings.
The service is absolutely top notch. The younger gal and guy (who I taught as a student teacher LOL) are very knowledgable, down to earth, and cheerful. If you have any questions or concerns, they will be sure to help you out.
As listed in the second paragraph, great selection along with decent prices. A must visit for any beer geeks in Columbus or for those driving through town.

This is one of my go to places in Columbus. I think it has the largest selection of beer in town. It is mostly bombers and magnums. They do not have the option to create your own six pack.
It is well organized with the first isle being English/Irish/Scottish breweries. All the Sam Smith, lots of BrewDog, all of the J.W. Lees Harvest Stout series, Thomas Hardy, you get the idea. The end of this isle is where the German ales reside. Paulaner, Weihenstephaner, Aventius etc.
Down the middle isle to the left side is all the Belgian breweries and Belgian style breweries. Lots of hard to find Unibroue, Cantillon, Lindeman's Gueze, Duchesse De Bourgogne, Rochefort and more.
The right side is one half of the American craft selection. This is the best place, or only place, in town to get Jolly Pumpkin. They have a lot of JP. I just got a bottle of La Roja recently. There is also all of the AleSmith brews in this isle.
The last isle is a continuation of craft beers. Lots of The Bruery, Avery, some of the better DFH like their 750ml bottles and 4 packs, and Hoppin Frog. The bottle shelf of this isle is where they keep their 6 packs. There arent many, this shop mostly has bombers.
At the end of this isle is where Bell's 6 packs and The Brew Keeper and Buckeye Brewing can be found.
Along the wall there are coolers with some 6-packs but I usually just ignore them. All the good stuff is on the shelves.
