Beer in the back in kind of its own room, actually has its own entrance. 2 staff were helpful and giving adive to others. Inquired if I needed help, which I didn't. Took the time to comment on purchases and others I may like, this is the service as a geek I look for. More in the way of passing suggestions, extrapolating from what I purchased.
May not have as much rare stuff, but they had some nice seasonal stuff people may just not realize is good. Bestefar comes to mind. MUCH better OH selections than Palmers. Came through looking for locals, Alesmith, Troegs and 3F. This place satisfied the local fix. They had one Alesmith(Speedway), but not what I was looking for. The make your own sixer had mostly large micros in it. Still I purchased about a 1/2 case of stuff here versus the 3 bottles from Palmers, though to be fair this included 2 four packs.
Reminded me a bit of the Green's warehouses in SC, though a little smaller. Maybe a small Binny's also. Would stop again passing through, same with Palmers. 71 going north or south, these are just a get off one exit, stop, get back on the next one down.

I stopped at Weiland's to check out the food section, but the beer aisles were much better! This is a separate liquor store, state agency-style, that sells beer, wine and hard liquor.
Their beer selection is quite expansive. Lots of bombers (a little pricey), with some rarities from Dogfish and New Holland. Plenty of six-packs too, from Great Divide, Stone, Dogfish (including Palo Santo and Burton Baton), Founders (including Breakfast), Bells (including Double Cream Stout, which I had never seen before), North Coast (Old Stock!)
Also growlers of Rogue Dead Guy and Rogue Amber, interesting... A whole aisle is devoted to Belgians and imports, which I don't much care for but- they have easily the best selection of Euro stuff I've seen in Columbus.
Another plus is the mix-and-match selection, a six-pack for $10 and you get to choose from all the singles in one shelf.
Service is good, they didn't really offer help but were there if I needed it.
Prices were OK, a lil' high but not outrageous. I can buy cheaper elsewhere in the city, but this is not bad.
I would absolutely come back to Weiland's if I lived around Clintonville. A very quality beer shop!

Easy to find, plenty of parking. The market itself was recommended as a great place to get quality meat and veggies and it is. I was surprised to see a large room within the market dedicated to beer and liquor.
A Unibroue rep happened to be there, hawking and offering tastings and a free glass. He did a fair amount of beer advocacy as well, so good on him. He talked a self-professed non-beer drinker into sampling a brew and she was clearly impressed. "Oh, well this isn't beer," she said. I love that. I sampled their Chambly Noire and Blanche De Chambly (little black-and-white action) and got a nice oversized wine glass with a tiny little chip in the bottom (well, why did you think they were free?).
The selection is impressive, with plenty of craft beers to choose from and a decent selection of imports. The staff there didn't seem to know that much about the beer (it is a grocery), but they were pleasant and tried to help as much as they could.
They had a make-your-own six pack set up (two or three tables full of unrefrigerated beer) with so-so choices, and a separate make-your-own summer seasonal sixer, which seems like a very good idea.
I spent over $100 and came away with two boxes of beers I had never tried and a nice beef flank and chicken breasts for the grill.
It's a great one-stop shopping mecca for me. Beer and quality meats. I will probably get to know the staff there very well over the next few weeks.

Just up the street from Palmer's, my go-to. It's basically a 'gourmet' grocery store that has a liquor store/bottle shop attached the back.
They have a decent stock of cold beer, as well as a good amount of it kept at room temperature. The selection is pretty good, but I haven't seen anything here that I can't get at other locations around the OSU campus.
They had a mix-6 option as well, but the selection for that was rather thin and unimpressive. My girlfriend took advantage of it to try some new things, but I went for some better stuff. The service is about the same as you would get anywhere else. Haven't had anything jump out at me with regards to that, but I also haven't had anything disappointing happen.
Overall a good place to pick up your weekend stash. I usually stop by here and Palmer's to see if anything interesting is at one but not the other. Nice to have two quality places so close to each other.

This is a mid-size neighborhood grocery store that carries mostly specialty foods and drinks. The beer is in the back in a separate room, and was kind of hard to find at first.
They really have a great selection though. It's mostly in 4/6packs, but there is a decent selection of bombers also. Most of the beer is already chilled, but they have a great selection of local Ohio crafts.
The singles area is not very good. It's very limited and typically nothing really special. Great place overall!

I have been coming to this store since they opened up there new section for beer and liquor. I have always felt at home. Polly and Sam do a great job running the show and are always helpful.
They do beer tasting on Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons. Stone Brewery was there last week. 25c for a healthy poor of their Russian imperial Stout and Barley wine is pretty sweet.
They have a clearance shelf, which is nice to help move inventory. I bought a couple of Rogue's Shakespeare stout and Boulder Beer's Obovoid Empirical Stout for 5 bucks a piece.
They have a decent beer selection. Carrying Dogfish Head, Bell's latest and Stone to name a few and are always open to ordering some they don't have.
I would recommend checking this place out if you are either traveling to or through Columbus. Especially, stop on Friday evenings during their taste testings.

Weiland's is a good place in Columbus to combine beer, liquor, and some higher-end groceries. The beer selection here is good, not incredible, but definitely one of the better places in Columbus. They make a point to emphasize the Ohio beers, which I appreciate, and have a decent selection for mixed-sixers that includes seasonal offerings. The service has always been excellent, with recommendations and even beer tastings on the weekend. This is one of my favorite places to shop in Columbus because of the variety and the very local feel.

Excellent craft and import selection - extremely knowledgeable staff - one of my go to stores in Columbus - reasonable prices - no steals but in line with other area stores - can purchase any beer individually - just ask and they will gladly accommodate.

This is a good sized gourmet market, with the beer and liquor store as separate department in the back...very clean..very large selection of beers..large import section, and a wealth of beers available in Ohio, with plenty of locals..a large refridgerated section...plenty of bombers, sixers and even a nice singles selection..all these at fair prices..very refreshing to see..the staff is available.. but they let you browse, as beer geeks do sometimes..the nice part is I was able to find the beer and food pairing I was craving,in particular, that evening..if you are in Columbus seek this place out...well worth the trip

Stopped into Weiland's this morning just to check it out. Pretty good beer selection here, both domestic and imports. A greater selection of many beers that you might find at a Giant Eagle or something, Bell's, Founder's (though no Breakfast Stout that I saw), some Great Divide, AleSmith, Southern Tier, Victory, Anchor, also the standards like DFH, Great Lakes, Rogue, etc. Also spotted some Rochefort and St. Bernardus as well.
Mostly four/six packs, a limited selection of singles, a decent selection of bombers.
Prices were pretty much what I've seen elsewhere. Wish they had a greater selection of singles.
However, definitely join their page on Facebook, they do a great job at answering questions about availability. They are also among the first in Columbus to get any of the new beer releases
