The guy who helped me out (I assume Matt by the other reviews) was great. Being from Ca. he showed me all the local stuff I might be interested in. He was very knowledgable and also homebrews and holds tastings.
I ended up buying about 30 or 40 dollars worth of beers. He also offered me his last Blushing Monk he had in the back and was fairly priced but I was going for more of a variety being I've never had access to a lot of those beers.
This would be one of my go to places due to the great service.And since they do tastings once or twice a week it's a great way to try new things.

Because of the rave reviews I had to stop in on the way down to Cleveland from Detroit on a Friday morning. I have to say I was pretty disappointed. They have a very small selection of quality beer, some singles, but I didn't see anything special or worth going out of the way for. No customer service to speak of. I was the only customer in the store for the 15 min I was there. Nobody ever came over to offer assistance. Not that I needed any, but ignoring a customer who is there for about 15 minutes is not good service.

Stopped in a few weeks back while passing thru Toledo. I only had time to stop at one place and this was it. Matt was friendly and knowledgeable. Selection was small but high quality and it sounds like things sell and rotate pretty quickly. Picked up some local microbrews, Big John, and 21st Amendment. The 21st was a treat as I cant get this in IN or IL and I've never even seen it in SoCal. Sounds like there is a pretty active craft beer scene in the area. Meats and cheeses are connected in the store next door. Nice place. I would definitely return.

Great selection of unique beers and a small home brew supply shop in the back. Most of their beers are in coolers with a few on shelves at room temperature. They do have a good selection of wine if your into grape juice...
Some of the home brew items were a bit higher then you would find at other home brew shops in the area although its in a great location close to the Turnpike and many major arteries out of town. They do carry grain, hops and wyeast yeast in slap packs. Some bottling equipments including bottles and cappers.
The staff was very helpful

Unfortunately I passed by this place many times. My fault actually, I dismiss "wine" shops in search for a beer utopia not even thinking about the beer selection being any good and I really missed a great stop for a while because of it. However, thankfully my buddy was running late in the area this week so I swung in just to pass time and I was truly surprised at this little place. The amount of beer is admittedly not overly impressive but the quality of the brew is outstanding. I found a few gems that I know for a fact I could not have gotten easily on my own, if at all (hopslam in may, really?!). They also hold beer and wine tastings every Wednesday and Thursday which I fully intend to frequent this summer. Locals bring in hard-to-get brews from all over and even some homebrew masterpieces to share. If you do stop in, which you should, ask for Matt. He is extremely friendly and knows his stuff. Im sure he would be more than happy to take down your information and form a "geeky beer wish list" for ya. I put down some rare stuff so that is left to be seen how that goes, but I have no doubt he will try his damndest to get it. Keeping my fingers crossed for that hunahpu! Oh I crack myself up...

I was in Toledo for a concert last friday and I made sure to hit up beerfly before leaving of course. Checked this place first, and scoped out everything before going to the next stops to see what was in store. I kept tabs on the selection, because I really wanted to go back. They had some of the very few cases of Goose Island Big John along with a few other goodies I was interested in. When I returned for the second time, Matt(the beer and wine guy) was there and was able to answer any questions I had, and even gave me a few suggestions when I was browsing around.
The selection here isn't mind blowingly large, but there is a fantastic variety of offerings, and they haven't been sitting around very long. Matt told me that he likes to keep the stock at a moderate level so that the freshest beer can be available for purchase without sitting in the store for too long. He also assured me that if I ever came back to visit Toledo, that I could shoot him an EMail and he could order in whatever beer I was looking for! Highly recommended for great service and fresh brews with a good selection variety as well.

I stopped by the Beer and Wine Cave for the first time this afternoon. Having heard of it on numerous occasions, I thought it was about time I see it for myself. I must say I am pleased I did, as it was thoroughly impressive. Matt is an awesome guy and really takes care of his customers. Myself and another customer talked beer with him for a good 10 or 15 minutes. While it is not the largest store you will find, the stock is very high quality and Matt makes it quite clear that he is interested in the input of those frequenting his establishment as he grows the selection. Despite this being my first visit, he expressed real interest in what I would like to see added to their inventory. This needs to be a stop for any local beer lover interested in a great beer store with an even better beer atmosphere.
As a side note, there are weekly beer and wine tastings that sound very cool; something worth checking out.

Went here on based on BA's recommendations. Had a great chat with Matt(?) the beer guy, who walked and talked me through his current stock. He was extremely friendly and helpful. If I spent more time in the Toledo area, I could easily see this becoming an excellent bottle shop, as Matt seems to really care about his regulars - he mentioned he tries to listen to what people/his regulars want and subsequently tries to stock it for them. For sheer amount, the Andersons has a much better selection, but you can't go wrong with the Beer and Wine Cave. I even picked up a Stone Vertical Epic 09.09.09! Will definitely stop by again when I'm in town.

Visited this place because of a friends strong recommendation. We stopped up to see what it was all about and ended up doing one of their beer tastings and the lineup was awesome. It is a great place to find rare and hard to find beers as I have never been disappointed. Matt (he runs the shop) had some Dogfish Head Squall IPA that I was looking for. If it's not in stock, just ask him and he will try his hardest to get it for you. Fortunately for me this store is rite in my back yard, but this place is definitely worth a day trip if you are not from around here. It has by far the best selection and service I have been able to find anywhere around Toledo or Southern Michigan. My friends and I love going out there on Thursdays for their Beer tasting and I recommend anyone in the area to stop on up there.

A non-BA friend of mine told me about the Beer and Wine Cave a while ago, and I've finally made it over. The location is in a strip mall across from the Stranahan in SW Toledo.
The first thing you'll see as you enter is wine. The front half of the store has racks of vino on both wall and through the center. Beyond the register lies the beer. The south wall holds shelves of room temperature stock, and the north wall is lined with refrigerators loaded with beer.
One of the most notable thing about the selection is how fresh everything seems to be. There are stores with more choices, but sometimes those choices are past their prime. Beyond that there is some really good quality beers here. Belgian ale and regional craft beers are very well accounted for, as well as some other surprises.
Service is excellent. Matt and company know and love beer. What more do you need to know? They do wine tastings Wednesday and Thursday nights. (maybe a little beer too) My only regret is not visiting sooner.
