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.

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.

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.

A neighbor tipped me off to the Beer and Wine Cave several months ago. Immediately upon walking in Matt greeted me with a warm smile and was more than willing to help. A few times Matt has even offered to help me carry my purchase to the car instead of making two trips.
I find that Matt is extremely helpful and willing to share his knowledge of beers. I have tried many new beers thanks to the Beer and Wine Cave. I will continue to shop here because I enjoy the quality and service I receive.
If you haven't been to the Beer & Wine Cave you should check it out.

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.

The BWC is a gem for craft shopping in south Toledo. It's true that due to limited floor space they can't stock a crazy amount of different crafts, but Matt is always up to speed with what is coming out, and he is eager to make any special orders that his customers ask for. Perhaps in that respect it's a better store for locals than it is for those "passing through". The available selection on any given day, however, is top notch.
There is always an emphasis on stocking and buying local, so you can expect to find great selections from northern Ohio and southern Michigan breweries.
It's unfortunate for the few negative reviews on here that the reviewers seemed to stop in when Matt was either out of the store or off that particular day. The regulars know that these reviewers would have had a completely different and much more positive experience had he been there. Unfortunately, the people who work in the attached butcher shop/market aren't beer geeks by any stretch and simply dont have the expertise to give us craft shoppers that Wow factor.
One thing would make BWC even better: growler fill station.

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.

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...

Had a great experience at the Beer and Wine Cave today with Matt. I had never been before and I was in the area and I had read good things so I figured I'd stop in. I was greeted immediately by Matt and shown around. They had just so happened to get some KBS in which helped. I liked the way he was allocating it - you can buy one bottle if you buy a 6 or 4 pack of another Founder's beer, limit two bottles this way. Seems fair to me and it was a good excuse to buy more Founder's stuff. Overall, a very good selection in a relatively small place. I will definitely be going back here in the future.

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.
