Stopped in here to pick up some Expedition Stout for my good friend mmcave from Chicago, and ended up spending another $30 on myself! They have a very large, reasonably priced beer selection here...The beer pretty much wraps around 2/3 of the large store. I picked up my Expedition Stout, along with an oak-aged Yeti, and proceeded to the checkout, where the man said "Say, if you like stouts I've gotta offer you what just came in."...I proceeded to by a 4 pack of Founder's Kentucky Breakfast...wasn't expecting to do that, but was very appreciative of the offer!! Most of the beer here is refridgerated, they have a small singles section where you can mix and match your own six-packs, but nothing too special in that section which was a bit of a dissapointment. All in all though a pretty good place to get beer I gotta say, plus, it's fairly local.

I thought I knew all the good beer stores in Columbus but I admit that I missed this one.
After reading about it here I knew I had to check it out, which I did yesterday. The appearance is truly deceiving. You would never anticipate the selection from the street.
They had a great selection of imports and micros and some great deals on beers slightly past the " best by" date. (For example two different Sea Dog beers for $9.99 per case.) They also had some breweries not represented at the other better beer stores.
Definitely a place I will check on a regular basis.

Somewhat in the Twilight Zone. Pulling up in front of the place, it looks like a 1982 Sav-a-lot meets Texico station. Even walking in, it took a good five minutes to confirm that I was actually at the right place. It's basically a convenient store with a very good alcohol selection. They had about 8 coolers from which I could pull beer singles. A decent selection of bombers and singles on the shelves and a bunch of sixers that I cannot get in Kentucky. A guess they offered 200-300 different brews, some local, some not. I picked up brews from New Holland, Stone, Rogue, Otter Creek, and Breckenridge. Upon leaving, I could have picked up a bag of chips, a lotto ticket, tobacco choices, a girlie magazine, and get my tires rotated. Basic one-stop shopping

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, but offers a quality selection on the inside. In the import section, to the left upon entering, they offer a solid selection of Belgian (four packs of Duvel not often found elsewhere), German, UK, Canada (Unibroue), and beers from around Europe and Asia. To the right of the main Import coolers is also a build your own six pack cooler, that features domesic mircros as well.
There is a macro brew section a little further right, but I bypassed that, and proceeded to the wall of coolers featruing a great selection of domestic craft brews: Rogue, Flying Dog, DFH, North Coast, Bells, and many others in varying formats, plenty of bombers, though they seem to focus on six packs. Without a doubt, one of the better selections of domestic microbrews in the city.
I can't really comment on the service, as I didn't ask for any assistance. But the gentleman at the cash register was friendly and complemented me on my selections ("you found some real gems"), which is always nice.

Stopped by here for my every few months beer-run to Columbus which are becoming more and more frequent.
Right off of 315 in the NW area of columbus on Kenny Rd. Pretty tough to miss. It's right past the Fox and Hounds Apt. complex.
Huge selection to choose from. Several nice Belgians in a cooler to your left, the back wall has a metric shit-ton of beer from all over the US. Fine selections from Rogue, Stone, Avery, Alesmith, Weyerbacher, Victory, Founders, Bell's, Three Floyds, Great Divide. Basically everything from all of the finest breweries in the states. Alot of imported stuff from Europe as well.
The shaggy-haired fellow that worked there was pretty knowledgeable and seemed to be pretty enthused to talk about beer. He made some recomendations and seemed like a pretty good fellow.
Prices aren't too bad.
A definite must stop if you're in the area.

I have only been to Kenny Rd. Market a few times, mainly because From the Vine is around the corner from my house, The best thing about this place is the amount of beer especially sixers they have in coolers. If you are looking for a sixer of something you'll find it here, however if you are looking for top shelf stuff you may be hard pressed to find it at times. It may have been bad timing but their selection of seasonals, limited releases and belgians was pretty weak when I visited them. Overall a solid second to From the Vine when it comes to beer stores in Columbus.

I first learned of this place 3 years ago. And this is where my "real beer" journey began.
Most of any brewery you can think of exists in this place and the guys at the counter have drank every one of them. They are more than helpful to give info of any brew you are wanting to try.
The funny thing is, I must have been renting U-hauls there for last 10 years and never noticed the mecca that was surrounding me.
Those years also were part of my throw-up from drinking too much Bud, or Icehouse, Molson Ice days.(now far gone)
If you live in Columbus, I highly recommend checking this place out. They have a huge selection.

You wouldn't know it by looking at the exterior, but this place has a very good selection of top-shelf beer. Almost all the beer is kept in coolers, not too cold.
There are maybe 20 Belgians, 20+ UK beers, 20+ Germans, and God knows how many micros. I generally stand in this store for at least 15 minutes making my selections.
I don't often go out of my way to get here, because I live close to the Andersons store (very competitive selection). But this would be a frequent destination for me if my local selection wasn't already good.

While visiting Columbus, I went to the Kenny Road Market to find a nice selection of craft and import beers. It was refreshing to see a variety of beers that I am unable to get in the Toledo area. They had a nice selection including Victory Storm King, Great Lakes Black Out Stout, most of the Rougue family, Arrogant Bastard, Tommyknocker's Maple Nut Brown, and so on. The imports included a decent selection of Begiums.
The staff and I talked about cellaring some beers. The two people working there really knew what they were talking about and loved their jobs. I will be back anytime I am in Columbus.

Can't believe I've gone within a block of this place for years and never knew it was there (Kenny Rd. veers to the right just south of the market - Godown is the "major" road up to Bethel).
The selection here is excellent, with a superb variety of imports. The British selections are particularly good: I've enjoyed St. Peter's English Ale from a couple of other sources, but this place had the Cream Stout and Old-Style Porter as well.
Of the three inside walls, one side is covered by cold imports, while the back is cold domestics - with lots of craft brews in amongst the AB/Coors/Miller stuff. Numerous 12-packs and even cases in here as well.
Plenty of choices in the non-chilled area as well, including some good sale items (if anyone was a big fan of Goose Island Christmas Ale, it's now going for $9.99 per case).
The only drawback was the very limited selection of singles for the mix-your-own six-pack - Pace-Hi Carryout is still the best I've found in the area for this service. Even so, the flat $7.99 for a mixed sixer is quite reasonable.
Thanks again, BA, helping me find this place. Yesterday may have been my first visit, but I know it won't be my last!
