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.

Beer and Wine cave is one of the best places in the area to go for beer purchasing, especially when you're looking for uncommon goods. They keep an up to date stock, and do their best to obtain rare beers. They are great to work with as well; if there is a beer that is legally attainable in Ohio that they don't have, Matt will do everything he can to get it in for you. They do a great job of carrying more than the grocery store craft beers, and its always exciting to go and and see whats new in the store.

This place is located at 4400 Heatherdowns in South Toledo. It's connected to Meats and More and, from what I've read and heard, the owners and staff take great delight in being able particularly to pair their meats and cheeses with the right beverages. I'd say dedication and store space is pretty much evenly split between beer and wine. There's a nice selection of some good quality beers. A length of shelves against one wall with a large cooler area across and a smaller cooler on the end of the shelf in the doorway leading to the deli makes up a very solid beer selection. Since I've been there I've made more effort to talk to whoever's working and everyone seems to really know what they're talking about. I also don't have to wait very long for service. The owner, Matt, will put together an amazing tasting and really knows the business and beer in general. For our tasting, he actually made bruschetta, mushroom soup, and boursin cheese with crackers. He also took some of his own bottles of the shelves for us to try(for the record, Ithaca Flower power and New Holland Charkoota rye doppelbock). Another really nice thing about it is that they have alternating wine and beer tastings so that on a given night you can go and sample some choice brews. All in all a good place to go check out if you're in the area.
Edit: after a recent tasting, scores have been changed. I edited the original review.
