This place is kind of the best in okc as far as variety, but that's not saying much. Recently they've gotten worse and worse, stocking more on wines and piss beer and holding back the good stuff. They have few very good selections so if you're a beer snob like me , this place gets old quick, specially when they stopped having old rasputin. If you like beer in general give this place a try, if you're a beer snob still try it, you might not be as big a snob as I and may be satisfied by what they have.
FYI, don't ask the staff about beer, they don't know anything and don't care about what you like, they brush me of with lame ass answers and got disgusted about simple inquiries , staff isn't beer friendly at all.

Even though I live in Oklahoma, I don't go OKC unless it's for a concert or sporting event. Thought I'd stop and check out this massive store on the way home. Yes, it's huge. The staff was friendly and asked if I was looking for anything in particular. I said no even though I was. I was after Marshall Brewing (Tulsa, OK company) El CuCuy black IPA and Big Jamoke porter, both of which they had plenty of. I also bought a Chimay gift set with the chalice. These items don't show up in my little town, so I didn't mind the fairly steep prices I paid for them. Everthing beerwise seemed to be well over what I'm used to paying further north. The Chimay, one Big Jamoke bomber, 2 El CuCuy bombers, a 500ml Weihenstephan Dunkelweissen, and a 12 oz Boulevard Nut Cracker was nearly $50. $20 of that was the Chimay set. They had many kegs out in the main store as well and not just common swill either. I don't buy kegs so can't comment on the pricetags. There was a decent mix-a-six section and many singles were available. As large as this place is, I felt that most of the space was dedicated to fairly common brands, which is typical in the state. Of all that space filled with beer, my items were all picked from about 12 linear feet of shelf space. I was very glad to see they carry baskets right there in the beer section. Although it seems they waste a lot of space with cases of "filler" beers, I also understand that they have to stock items that sell quickly to the masses. I was also happy that the guy that rang me up asked how I wanted my bottled packaged. They have a lot of beer volumewise, but I didn't see anything I thought was a rare find.

A pretty big liquor store. Good beer selection. Awesome wine department. Very clean.
Most of the imports and craft/micro's available in Oklahoma can be had here. The staffs beer knowledge is poor, and service is so so. Prices are high for the area. They once had Sam Adams Boston Lager for $3.99 a sixer here, drink by date was well into the future ( five months ). Couldn't pass on that deal so I bought a couple sixers.
All beer is sold at room temperature per Oklahoma state law.
A nice place to shop if you live in the neighborhood.

Place is in a little strip mall out on the corner of town. Walked in and DAMN, the place is huge. Beers are along the back and left walls as you come in. Excellent selection and a huge wall of singles, which I always appreciate. The beers I checked out all appeared to be relatively fresh. Had just about every brewery one can find in Okla-homa. The only thing I was dissapointed by was what I felt was a lack of big/limited release beers. Didnt see anything that jumped out at me in terms of the harder to find stuff. The place is definitely worth the stop though.

Of the liquor stores I've been to in Oklahoma City so far this has been the best one. The quality of beer here is very good. I haven't been able to find Choc bombers or Marshall beers before coming here. I was happy to see the wall of singles and bombers and filled my basket up. The selection of beer here is huge. They don't have anything too crazy but a huge selection of craft beers. This was also the first time I've ever seen kegs for sale on display on the floor. To me the prices really didn't seem all that bad to me. This seems like the place to go in Oklahoma.

Oklahoma's largest liquor store - 18,000 square feet. It's a brand new location and they claim to have every beer available in Oklahoma on the shelf. A generally very pleasant and helpful staff. I believe they cater to wine first (and do so very well from my observation) - unbelievable wine selection. Overall the very best beer store in Oklahoma that I am aware of. A bit pricey on some items, but it is a more pleasuralbe shopping experience than most beer stores. They actually brought in Ayinger recetnly - a gesture that I haven't seen from any other store. I was able to enjoy a Celebrator this weekend.
I see others have already mentioned it in their reviews, but I was in there last weekend and noticed that they have a HUGE wall of singles now.
I'm updating my review of Cellar....I hate to say it, but they aren't all that they used to be in my opinion. You're going to pay about $1 more for anything you buy from them and they don't really do anything to earn it. I asked this week why they don't even bother to do the end cap with the new and seasonal beers and the response was that it was too much hassle or something. Seriously? You're asking generally a $1 more for any six on the shelf and you can't support stocking an end cap with seasonals and new arrivals?
The selection isn't all that anymore either. My local liquor store, Mayfair Liquor has a surprisingly competitive selection. They even have beers that Cellar isn't bothering to stock. Cellar may still be the best selection available, but it's not all that it could be in my opinion. I like to see if there is anything new and exciting in town every once in a while and I question if a trip to Cellar is even going to give me that. For what they charge it's just not worth the trip for me.

This was my second stop in Oklahoma City to buy some beers, with the first being Byron's. It's part of a shopping center. Walked in, and this place is HUGE!! Huge selection of Wines, Beers, and Liquor. Beers were located on the back wall and left wall all along a shelf. Spotted plenty of Boulevard, and even found some Avery Mephistopheles Stout, which I can't get in Georgia. So, I went ahead and stocked up on three bottles of that. Spotted a couple of other breweries - Acme for one comes to mind. Service was helpful. On two occasions, I was asked if I needed help finding anything. Good quality from the looks of it. You can make your own sixers, which I thought was pretty cool. The only drawback of this place, is that it's pretty pricey. Something that costs $8.00 at Byron's is $10.00 here. Overall, this is a great liquor store, and if I lived here, I would be a regular at this place.

This is the best selection from a liquor store in OKC that I have found. There is the usual BudMillerCoors selection, but the craft is large as well. They have plenty of 6 packs, and a back wall that is full of singles and bombers. They have a bunch of gems, but everything is quite expensive. The service was very good. An employee asked me if I needed help and we talked a little beer. He had a thorough knowledge of the subject. Overall, I consistently drive the extra few miles to go to Cellar over other stores in the area mainly for the selection.

Cellar Wine & Spirits is conveniently located in a strip mall next to Homeland at the intersection of N. May Ave & W. Britton Road with easy access from Lake Hefner Pkwy (US740). From my understanding, this location has been open for about five years. Upon entering, the first thing you'll noticed is how freaking ginormous this place is with over 18,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space making it on of the largest liquor stores in the state. Lots of room to stretch your legs while perusing the beer shelves. I don't know how many beers they actually had in stock, but I'm sure it rivals anything in the state. I was cordially greeted upon entering and the Asst. Manager even showed me around the beer aisles pointing out the latest offerings. I specifically went in looking for the Eel River beers, because we haven't gotten any upstate to date. I ended up buying a perry & a couple of ciders that I haven't had before + a few singles off the magical wall of Pick 6. All-in-all a very pleasant shopping experience. Highly recommend if you find yourself in the city for business or leisure.

It is not the cheapest in the OKC metro but this store and it's sisters in OKC and Norman house the finest beer selections I've seen so far in Oklahoma. Not saying there aren't better selections out there... only that this is the best I've seen. It may take awhile to find a place to top is as I'm hestitant to go elsewhere because I know they will have what I want, except for those finer ales which aren't available in Oklahoma (Stone, Dogfish etc). The help is extremely friendly and there's usually at LEAST one person in the room well versed in the myriad beers. It would be difficult for a beer lover to go wrong here. If you're from out of state... just be warned the beer is sold room temperature but it isn't their fault.
