This is a big monstrosity of a party store. There is everything that you would need to host a party of any type. It's not at all uncommon to see somebody with two carts full of party accessories and liquor. I've been in line several times here where the person in front of me has spent $500 plus on alcohol. The beer selection is nice and they have several taps for growler fills. Inside the "beer cave" they have the best singles offering I've seen of any local store. This place is a no brainer when I'm grabbing singles to complete a trade. Also a decent selection of glassware. A bonus is there's no state tax in Kentucky, so I save a little on my purchases as well.

Party Source is a big box liquor, etc. store, so it doesn't get much on atmosphere. The selection includes many Midwest goodies such as Bell's, Great Lakes, and locals like Rivertown and Mt. Carmel. Other domestics are decently represented, too. Their foreign collection is as good as any in the area. The staff is always helpful and persistent in getting me the info that I need about a product. They are also very responsive with email questions, too.
The front of the store has a small growler station, which is always filled with an interesting mix of brews. Their pricing for a growler fill is a little on the high end, when compared to other stores in the area.

This is a big warehouse party supply store with everything from gag gifts to beer to hard liquor. I stopped in twice on Friday. The place is very clean and shiney. It looks like they are either expanding or remodeling. The beer section has a large selection of imports and domestic micros. They do not allow you to grab warm singles out of six-packs, but they have a gigantic walk-in cooler with singles, though its not all that well stocked or taken care of. The whole time I was there, noone offered any help or even paid attention to the other folks in the ber section. Pretty lacking in that department.

I drove here from Dayton pretty excited. I am a lover of both wine and good beer. I actually was hoping to find a better wine selection. Not to say there's was not good but much of the big name wines were off vintages.
Onto the beer. Being from Ohio the law here says that beer over 12% ABV cannot be sold. Yes probably the worst law of mankind but it's still the damn law. (Hell with making extra tax money selling it). Anways this is where I was dissapointed. There were not many above 12% ABV beers here at the party source. Therefore I could have obtained probably 90% of the beers here at Belmont Party Supply in Dayton and would have only had to drive 20 mins instead of a little over an hour.
You would think that since the Party Source is right accross the river and know Ohio can't carry the higher alcohol brews they would try to carry a plethora of them. Instead they only carry one of the Dogfish High Alcy beers (world wide stout), an Avery and maybe a few choice others.
Overall a great selection if you're nearby but if going for a long haul from Ohio to locate a certain brew. I'd call first to see if they have what you're looking for.

I stopped by this massive store the other day while taking a full day trip to Cincinnati. It wasn't too far south of Cincy at all and well worth the stop. It has a massive selection of spirits, a nice grocery area, and a good amount of beers not easily found outside of Ohio/Kentucky. They had three bombers from Three Floyds (Blackheart, Dreadnaught, and Gorch Fock), which I didn't expect to find. They also had an unblended lambic I'd never seen before, Rivertown Brewing Co. Lambic. They have a wall of American and Belgian craft that is pretty extensive, which leads to a walk in cooler that is pretty huge. They have a lot of singles chilled and ready to go. One of their strengths is their selection of kegs. They had probably over a hundred sixth barrels, which was insane. This is a good stop and is a fine substitute if you can't make it across to Cincinnati.

This is some great beer stop! Huge store, huge parking lot, and big crowds. The beer section is loaded with lots of micro and imported beer and some items rarely seen just anyplace, like the old favorite Cincy area brew, Wiedemann's. Lots of choice and most of the beers are available from the enormous walk-in cool storage area. Pretty much self service, but if you know what you want, you may find it here. Checkout lanes seemed well staffed. Difficulty getting out of the parking lot may be the biggest problem at this store.

I stopped by here with kmpitz2 on my trip to Kentucky. This is a huge party supply store with a big selection of wine, beer and cigars as well. In the back right corner of the store there is a huge wall with lots of micros and imports. There's a touch of everything here including lots of Rogue, Dogfish Head, Stone and many more. The import selection is quite nice as well. The store is bright and the aisles are big and open. It's easy to get around and check things out.
They don't let you break up six packs here...however if you go past the plastic curtain into the huge cooler in the back you'll see a huge selection of singles. The only problem here is that they are not organized well and some of them seemed to be sitting there for awhile. Make sure to check for dates on the bottles if possible. Other than that, the selection is quite massive. While I was there I didn't see any associates and no one asked if I needed help. So I can't say much for service. The store also had a nice selection of glassware. I picked up a solid Delerium Tremens glass for only $1.99! If you are in the area I recommend a stop by The Party Source!

Highlights of last visit (October 05, 09):
Goose Island Night Stalker (at the growler station)
Sierra Nevada Estate Brewer's Harvest '09
Avery 16th Anniversary Ale
Visited this weekend after strolling through Dilly Deli and Jungle Jim's...Yep, It was a good day! (but not for may wallet). I was as impressed with their selection as I was the other two venues. The beer was tucked into the most remote corner of the building, but worth the walk. They have the run-of-the-mill stuff from the Marcro and Micro companies, but do carry some unique stuff from Rogue, Stone, J.W. Lees, Avery...the list goes on. They have a 4 taps with Dogfish 60 minute and Stone IPA--I had to get some growlers. The store also has a nice kitchen and has cooking classes and tastings. They also have a good selection of cheeses, wines, scotches, and bourbons. The have a nice bar supplies area with cool beer glasses. Some of their selection was not price-listed and service was non-existent.

The party source is a combination liquior, wine, beer and food store. The beer selection is why BA's would primarily be interested in this store. Although the store will be able to see many other needs. Now back to the beer. They of course have the usual suspects BMC. There is a very nice selection of imported beers. The selection of microbrews is pretty much concentrated in the heavy hitters Stones, Rogue ect. A nice selection of beers can be found as singles and bombers warm on the shelf. There is also a really good selection of cold beers in the beer cave. You can buy dam near anything in the store as a single beer. They have taps where you can buy growlers of beer. I havent used this service but it is available. Staff has been reasonably helpful but not particularly knowledgeable.

I was here about 8 or 9 years ago, and after visiting again last week it looks like the beer selection has gone from good to great. A ton of Belgians, British Ales, American Micros and more. Gigantic walk-in cooler past the walls of warm beer - I picked up a sealed growler of Mt. Carmel Copper Ale, that was very good even after a three hour ride back home. Huge wine and liquor selection, and a smattering of gourmet foods as well. Hofbrauhaus is right down the street, making it a must stop after having a few brews.
