Cheer up, Wildman, it's back. I reported this closed several months back because I went there only to find a shell of a building. What I didn't know, and what was not shown by any sign in the window, was that they were closed for general renovation, cleaning and restocking. Though it is not any palace of beer, it is certainly a great supply source once again. I scored 3 liter bottles of Double Bastard, picked out a couple of sixers of good singles, and could have easily spent much more time selecting good brews.
Friendly owner who is very helpful. Great selection with more on the way. Lots of cooler space and singles choices. Rear parking lot and open 7 days a week from 9 to around 10 at night. Highly recommended unless your primary choices are exotic Belgian beers, of which I saw few. At least you won't trip over 12 packs of macro brew here.

I had abandoned this place several months ago as a complete waste of time - bare shelves and disinterested staff. But, after hearing about the new ownership, I stopped by. Wow. What a change.
Picked up four sixpacks of my favs, but they have a solid selection: Stone, Victory, Founders, Bells, Great Lakes, Avery, North Coast, a handful of Belgian and German imports and more. I also picked up my wife's all-time favorite: St. Bernie Abbot 12 in the four pack. Now I'm a hero.
The place is clean and well organized. Make your own sixers (had a hopslam that way, before dropping the $16 for six).
The owner was eager to help and promised to try to get anything I wanted. Besides that, I just liked the guy from the get-go.
It's going to be a regular stop for me.

Dropped by a week ago--first time I'd been there in a while. Glad to see that not much has changed: building's still nothing special, a wide variety of beer (from familiar to never-saw-it-before) is available, and the laid-back owner is helpful when you want help (and also remembers his customers).
I first ran across this shop about fifteen years ago. Back then it was THE place in Columbus to find a good variety of beer. It may have lost that distinction but it's still a special place--and although I live nearly 100 miles away I try to stop in when I'm in the north part of Columbus.
As others have mentioned, it's probably the best place around for making your own samplers, since they'll sell singles of anything!

Somehow I never really managed to get out to this place in all my years around Columbus. Man was I missing out.
Essentially a little convenience store, mostly alcohol forward. There were a few racks of wine, and possibly liquor, but I didn't really have a ton of time to explore the non-beer part of the store.
I came here because I needed to pick up some singles for a trade, and I had heard they are great about singles.
Almost every 12oz beer was sold in single form, and whatever is not can be broken into singles. The manager/owner was very quick to accommodate my request to break a sixer of Columbus Summerteeth into singles, and he in fact remarked that he was surprised it wasn't already available as singles.
There were tons of little gems sitting around, ranging from nice Ohio stuff, to harder to find seasonal releases, as well as some really interesting import offerings from Belgium and Germany. There were several Ohio breweries represented that I have not seen sold anywhere else in town.
There are some shelves, but I'd say that about 70% of all beer is in a cooler. The sheer size is smaller than Kenny Road, but the selection in the cooler makes this a better stopping point than Kenny Road imo.
Once I have some spare cash I want to stop back again to pick up some fun new ticks!

Wow, what a difference new owners can make! I stopped in to this store last week, somewhat reluctantly. I've always found this place to be dark, hot, and dusty, with a borderline surly staff. Also, I had always assumed their beer was old. I could have been wrong, but it's impossible to look at a facility in such a state of neglect, and believe that their attitude toward their product was any different.
When I made an emergency quick stop last week, I was pleasantly surprised! Clean, new counter tops, tidy well-stocked shelves, and abundant NEW COOLERS.
I was picking up some pilsners for outdoor summer drinking, but as I reached for the Prima and Sunshine, I nearly changed my mind. Faced with so many choices, it was difficult for me to just grab my purchase and run. I will return when I have a time to peruse the selections.
I commented on the changes to the men at the counter. They said they purchased Pace High last August, along with the carry-out across the street. Apparently, they gave both a complete overhaul.
Although they did not seem terribly knowledgeable about beer, my friend stopped in shortly afterward and talked to, who he assumed to be, their beer expert. My friend is only just getting into craft beer and he was very happy with the level of assistance he received.
I'm thrilled to know there is another convenient location to buy cold craft beer in this area of town. I'll add it to my regular rotation, along with Palmer's and Weiland's.
If you've been here in the past, and recall what a hole it used to be, I highly recommend you give it another shot. Allow them the opportunity to win you over.

Went zooming by and almost didn't see it, let alone remember it was one of the places I wanted to check out. It took two tries at looping around twisty little streets that all looked alike before I came back far enough. Damn this foolish no U-turn law!
It was worth the effort. I stepped into a rustic, barnlike store framed by rough-hewn beams. Never mind the wine in the left half. Pass through to the right hand and find a roomful of beer. As you twine through it, you keep finding more nooks and corners and more beers. Some very interesting Belgians (and B-style) prominently displayed, like Hitachino Nest and Black Ghost.
Nice guy at the counter, who was glad to help, though not exactly the most voluble.
The best part is you can get singles of *anything*. Joy for the beer-hunter!

This place is literally about 5 minutes away from me up Indianola Ave. yet today was my first time visiting, thanks to checking out the reviews here on BA. Really wish I would have known about this gem the past few years, as I will be moving from Columbus back to Cincinnati in August.
As far as beer selection goes, it is at the top of the list with regards to selection and service for me in Columbus. The owner, Kalpesh, was super friendly and helpful. Took me a while to browse through the selection, which included an extensive selection of local brews, Belgians, and some my other favorites such as Founders, Great Lakes, DFH, Alesmith, etc. You can make your own 6 pack and Kalpesh broke up a sixer of GL Lake Erie Monster so that I could add one too my grab bag. Also picked up an Alesmith IPA, Breckenridge Small Batch 471 DIPA, Two Brothers Resistance IPA, Weyerbacher Hop Infusion, Troegs HopBack, and a Southern Tier IPA. Best surprise was being able to snag a couple KBS's!
I look forward to frequenting this store in the future.
