I have been going to The Andersons for about three years now and they never disappoint. It's turned into a ritual where I hit The Andersons and follow it up with Whole Foods. For some reason The Andersons always has that "hard to find beer," the most recent example being Founders Double Trouble. I hit a few mom and pop/local stores with no success only to be surprised by The Andersons.

The quality & selection is always solid with your high end Alesmiths, Jolly Pumpkin, JW Lee's, etc. and of course the micro staples such as Bells, Founders, GLBC, DFH, etc.

I have never had to ask any questions and I rarely see any employees lurking in the beer aisle; though they are very evident in the wine sections.

The prices are about the same as you find at most stores. Definitely a good place to hit especially if the local/home grown stores don't have what you are looking for.

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
