This is my most frequented beer destination in the Columbus area. The selection is second to none in the area. Service can be hit or miss. Some employees are very knowledgeable about craft beer while others are lacking and more familiar with wine. The atmosphere is nothing special. After all, it is just a department store of sorts. Prices are reasonable and generally fall in line with other retailers; however, many of their 12oz singles are marked up significantly.

This is a beer drinker's heaven. The largest selection of craft and imported beers, IMHO, of any store in the Columbus area. Competitive pricing and a huge array of bottles available is singles. Can't believe it has taken me this ling to wander over to their store. Three thumbs up ;-)

The Andersons was excellent. The atmosphere of the beer aisles (where I was hanging out) was just fine, there was a wine/cheese sampling going on... folks were casually perusing the aisles. While I wasn't checking around for dates/etc, all of the items I purchased were fresh (although the Bell's Expedition I picked up was about a year old, which is excellent). Several employees in the beer/wine section guiding patrons to their beers, and one particularly knowledgeable employee running about like a madman helping folks make their selections. I was asked several times if I needed a hand/etc. As far as I have heard, if it is distributed in OH then it is at The Andersons. Wonderful selection. Prices were on par with most I have seen.

Andersons General Store

Not very close to me and can be a real treat to visit when I'm in the area. I'll keep this review short and sweet . . . Bottom line is this . . . If it is distributed to Ohio and meets the 12% law currently on the books Andersons has it. Period !

I was seriously blown away by the selection of beer. By far the best central Ohio has to offer at the time of this review.

I won't go into what beers you'll find because like I said before . . . If it's distributed to Ohio then Andersons has it.

Only bummer was they had such a great selection of ipa's that some of the really hard to find stuff was out dated . . . Yes, hard to find, rare ipa's just sittin there covered in dust.

Check em' out.
Know what your looking for before you buy and pay attention to the bottle dates
