Best Beer Store and Best Liquor Store: Weiland’s Gourmet Market

From the March 28, 2013 edition

Weiland’s Gourmet Market was overwhelmingly voted the best liquor and best beer store by Alive readers for this year, and it’s not surprising.

The Clintonville market has an unparalleled selection of spirits — more than 600 varieties including all the top-shelf bottles and a number of rare and micro-distillery liquors.

The beer selection is just as impressive. Craft breweries are present galore in six packs and many in single bottles. Plus, there are imports you won’t find anywhere else (oh, the Belgians!).

Besides the selection, Weiland’s has begun offering regular in-store beer and liquor tastings this past year as well as a growler station.

Swinging by on a Friday to pick up some weekend libations has become an opportunity to sample new products and check out a really fun little party.
