Welcome to Cosmo's Beer Blog!

We’re a small group of friends and family scattered across the country who’ve all developed a thirst for craft and import beer. We decided that a blog would be a great venue for us to share our hobby. Here we will review beer, compare notes and challenge each other with "Beer Missions".

So welcome to our little world of discovering great tasting beer!

Beer in Dayton, Ohio

I wanted to write a quick post about a few of the great places in the Dayton, Ohio area to pick up amazing beer.  Many people have heard the name Arrow Wine, but few have paid attention my two preferences; Centerville Carry Out at 725 and 48 and Belmont Party Supply off of Smithville and Watervliet Ave.  I like Arrow Wine, I really do, but....they have a more kindred spirit for those 'wine' folks.  I'm not against the wine brethren, but they seem to receive preferential treatment in selection and focus as the name of the store is Arrow 'Wine.'  The name Centerville Carry Out and Belmont Party Supply aren't exactly all encompassing either, but at least they're not purposely picking favorites.

Names and preferences aside, I just love Centerville Carry Out and Belmont Party Supply.  They are small locally owned stores that have amazing selections to keep me browsing for more than what should be 5 minutes when I visit from Houston, TX.

Keep up the great work guys, we'll see you in Dayton, Ohio soon for some great selections we just can't get down here in ol' Texas :)

  1. Belmont Party Supply is awesome. Amazing selection. In fact, I was just there a couple weeks ago stocking up on Alesmith and other goodies. You might also like Miami Valley Wine & Spirits in Tipp City, and if you are near Cincinnati, Jungle Jim's in Fairfield has an excellent beer selection as well.

  2. Yes, I also love Belmont Party Supply. If I could change one thing, it would be that they'd keep the store about 10 degrees cooler to protect the beer. I've never been to Centerville Carry Out or Miami Valley Wine & Spirits. I'll have to stop by next time I'm in Ohio.

    Charles, next time you're up this way, we'll have to take you to a couple of the better Indy bottle shops.
