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 live walking distance from the market and am rarely disappointed; they ran out of Tröegs Nugget Nectar yesterday and was really in the mood for one or two. Their selection is fantastic and you can buy many beers cold or warm. The coolers on the left after entering are foreign beers and are organized by country. Along the back wall on the left are all the Macro beers that you find at any grocery store. But the biggest section along the back wall is the Micros and they have lots to choose from. Their selection ranges from the local beers to west coast beers. Tröegs, Anchor, Stone, Bells, Bear Republic, Rogue, Great Lakes, and New Holland just to name a few. Just keep in mind that you aren't going for the atmosphere because the interior leaves a bit to be wanted. The people there are very helpful and are often willing to let you know what is new and I have even been told a few things that they are getting in advance.

This place is easy to miss. I lived in this area for four years and never knew it was there. A selection of over 500 craft beers. It is truly breath-taking. The help is also very knowledgable and great with making suggestions and talking about all things beer. They sell individual bottles or six packs. They have the usual assortment of macros and a nice wine selection. However, this store definitely caters to the discerning beer drinker. This is the place to stop if you are in the area and looking for good craft beer.

I really enjoyed coming here. I'm new to the Columbus area and from the Kenny Road Market image I was actually a little nervous as it looked like it might be in a "ghetto" part of town. I was pleasantly surprised to find it in a nice neighborhood and not run down at all.
I'm relatively new to the craft beer world (6 months and going or so) so, to me, the selection was extensive. I've been making my way through Rogue stuff and they had a few things I hadn't seen anywhere else. James, the store clerk, is amazing. He knows his stuff inside and out and likes to chat. Don't pop in here if you're in a hurry as he is really knowledgeable and turned me on to quite a few things I have never heard of.
Having been to just about every store on the Beer Advocate list, I'd have to say that this and Andersons are my two favorites. Since I'm still refining my tastes and finding out what I do and don't like, I like having the ability to mix sixes and grab bombers. Kenny Road Market had probably the largest selection of bombers I've ever seen.
Definitely worth checking out!

Very unassuming - it looks like a corner store at first glance, so no, you're not confused - but spectacular place. This and Grapes of Mirth in the North Market are well worth visiting while in Columbus. Great selection of some hard-to-find domestic craft (Stone, Three Floyds, Bells, Victory) and imports. Also many very local, such as Buckeye Brewing and of course GLBC. Knowledgable, friendly staff who seem to somehow know most of their immense beer selection. Cannot recommend them enough. This is just after the split on Kenny.

I just joined Beer Advocate a few days ago after tasting my first trappist ale (Chimay Red). I then went to Brazenhead where I could order the blue, and then Winking Lizard where I could taste a Rochefort 10. As you can see, I am hooked on the trappist and Belgian ale.
When I read that the Kenny Road market, just around my house had a great beer selection, I was shocked. When I first entered the store I noticed about 4 different kinds of Italian beer, very nice! Upon further review, I found the trappist section, and I walked out with some great stuff (Chimay Blue 750ml, Orval, Westmalle, Rochefort 8).
The guy at the counter told me I had great taste in beer, and I told him he had a great selection. I was told that store has the 2nd largest selection of beer in Ohio (the other store is an enormous place in Cincinnati, I guess). I can't wait to go back!

This store has one of the better beer selections in Columbus. I have tried a ton of new beer through them, and they can even request a beer if you know what you are looking for. Their snacks section is solid if you need some munchies. They also frequently have fancy beer mugs, glasses and shot glasses for really cheap. I got a Jim Beam engraved glass for a dollar and one of my coolest shot glasses for $1.50

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.
