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.

first thing and one of the most important I find when coming into this place is not just a good selection, but a good selection of refrigerated beer. As far as selection of beer, they got most of the standards, missing a few Trappists beers, but, still, quite a few goodies in here, most notably Sinebrychoff porter they've also got a few belgiums and french beers you can't find in many other places. Also, have a selection of glassware that varies every few weeks. Manager is very enthusiastic and helpful. As far as I know, everything is priced reasonable. Biggest problem with this place is that they tend to have a few old beers on the shelves, so watch out for freshness dates, especially over by the singles. Other than that, a great place to buy beer in Columbus, and my go to place for beer buying in the area.

Stopped in the other day to pick up some good beer before I went back to school. I must say that I was incredibly disappointed by what has happened to the shop in the last few months.
Over the summer there was a great selection of Bell's, Unibroque, Stone, Dogfish Head, etc. To my dismay when I went recently the store had gone from the having coolers and shelves stocked full to barely having anything at all. The shelves were so empty that I asked the cashier if they were going out of business. He responded this was the way that the owners were keeping the store from now on. He was also rather rude when talking to me about this, but it may have been that he was upset that the store was in the state that it was in.
A neat feature about this store is that they allow you to buy singles from any of the sixers that they have, but with the current selection this feature is not very useful.
Bottom line-this was once a pretty good store to find a wide range of micros, but with the bare shelves it's just not worth the trip.

This has become my favorite bottle shop in Columbus recently. It basically just looks like a regular shitty convenience store from the outside, and even on the inside until you turn to the right. They have a lot of great beer. Lots of beer in coolers and lots of bombers on the shelves. The selection is really really good here and just as good as Weiland's. Service is fine, they stay out of your way, which is the way I like it.
I really love this place, though, for the singles selection though. They'll basically single out any beer for you. Great prices too.

Stopped in here last summer, and the place was full of empty shelves, so it's been nice to see the store back up to full capacity lately. Not too many parking spaces, but there always seems to be at least one free on High St. in front of the store. The wine is in the left half, with the other devoted to the beers. They are (very) loosely organized, with Americans, Germans, Belgians, etc. tending to be grouped together, but not in strict sections. There are some coolers (one of which was broken last time I stopped in), but most are on wine racks or stacked on the floor.
They have a pretty wide selection that is comparable to the better stores in Columbus, with a few imports I don't think I've seen elsewhere, including a few French ones. All of the bottles are conveniently labeled with a date, presumably when they arrived. The store's main advantage however, as others have noted, is that they will sell singles of anything you want.
My only complaint is that it is really hot in the store in the summer, since there's no AC (it was probably around 95 F the last few times I was in). I don't know much about storing beer long-term, but that can't be good, especially since a lot of the beer has been there since last year according to the price tags. This makes me more than a little hesitant to buy some stuff that I would otherwise pick up.

Pace-Hi is becoming my new favorite place in Columbus. I just started going in here after 5 years of living in Columbus. First thing I notice is it is really bright and clean in here, only downside to that is there are very big windows in the front of the store that let in a lot of light towards the beer section but its not like it is direct sunlight so I'm not too worried about it.
Great selection of beers, on par with any other store around, about 10 cooler doors absolutely packed with six and four packs and about 2 dedicated to bombers. Nice little selection of cold singles, last time I was in i noticed that they added an addition cooler door of singles, plus I'm pretty sure that they will break most things into singles if you ask. Which brings me to the service, most of the time when I am in here I'm not really looking for help but whenever I have a question about whether they have something they always do everything they can to help (recently scored some Nemesis that was not on the shelf).
Basically, Pace-Hi is my new go-to place especially when I'm in the area, along with Palmers and Kenny Road Market, but Pace-Hi has been top of the list for me recently.

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.
