Grandview Carry Out

Columbus Alive recently surveyed readers to identify the best places in Columbus to buy beer.  The winner was Weiland's Gourmet Market.  The runners up were Grandview Carry Out and The Bottle & Barrel.  Having been to Weiland's and written about it, I decided it was time to check out the runners up.  First up is Grandview Carry Out.

Located near the intersection of Grandview Avenue and 3rd Avenue, this shop shares a wall and a parking lot with Cowtown Pizza.

Craft beer is mostly located in a refrigerated section on the opposite wall from the front door.  Additional craft beer is found on shelves at the end of the refrigerated section, and near the cash register.

The store is easy to get in and out of, and is well lit inside.

Pricing for most items was in line with what I've seen at other local retailers, with a few items being perhaps a dollar or so cheaper, and others being a dollar or so more expensive.

I saw a few beers here that I've either not seen at other local retailers, or haven't seen at many of them.  Specifically, I saw beers from Black Hawk, Ithaca Beer Co., Tenaya Creek, and The Brew Kettle.  These were accompanied by many others.  I'll provide the full list at the end of the article to give you some idea of the selection you may find there.  I would estimate that the beer selection here is smaller than that at Weiland's or Kenny Road Market, but better than some other shops.  I did find Dogfish Head Chateau Jiahu for sale here, which is a beer I've only found in Columbus on one other occasion in the past year.

If you live in the Grandview area, or you're visiting that area for any reason, you may want to take a moment to drop by and peruse the selection.
