The Anderson's, as many have mentioned is a "general" store, meaning they sell all sorts of things, not just beer. I am however, focusing on the beer.

A: The atmosphere is superb, lots of chatter throughout.

S: The service is outstanding. It really doesn't get any better. The majority of the beer/wine staff really knows their stuff. A few are up and comers that are still learning. They are beer/wine people and are there to help.

S: The selection is the best in NW Ohio. While people will complain or comment about the other Anderson store's in NW Ohio, they're going to be generally the same. (Same distributors) Limited releases can be few and far between if you're not a regular. However, if you are, you'll be treated right, as expected.

F: The food selection overall isn't vast. However they do have an above average meat and cheese departments.

V: Beer is reasonably priced and in line with other places throughout the city.

O: Overall, this is THE only story I buy beer from in NW Ohio. If you've been underwhelmed by the selection, you're either doing it wrong or came in on a off night. It's a large store, the beer is there, but it does go fast. Don't hesitate to ask for something to be held back, but be realistic.

Another one of my usual go-to places when I travel for work. Good selection of beer, domestic and import. Friendly, helpful service. Only drawback is a slim selection of chilled bombers, almost everything cold is 12 oz bottles/cans. Aside from that, there is an extremely large selection of brews from which you can build your own 6 pack.

Imports include some hard to find belgian, like Fantome. Large selection of Michigan micros and local favorites. Prices are very reasonable and in line with local standards.

The Anderson's is not a 'Big Box Store' or a 'Chain'. It is, as its name suggests, a general store. Locally owned and operated, the store is situated just across the street from the families' grain operation.True one can purchase building supplies, tools, work wear, major appliances, trees and ornamental plants, as well as general goods, The Market is the main focus here.

The Marketplace has grown from a basic sort of grocery into a Mecca for quality Deli goods, gourmet coffees, an excellent meat market, and extensive wine shop.Then of course the reason we're here, BEER! Far and away the regions best selection and as this is widely known, product turnover is very good(this to me is what sets it apart from some well stocked carry-outs or Party stores). I would estimate 300+ imports, domestics, micro-brews, craft brews, and seasonal offerings.Most of these offered in singles, but also a great cold selection (including a beer cave), growers and mini kegs also available. Usually staffed by a beer and wine guru, able to answer questions or special order something for you.

If your from here, I'm sure you already know, if your passing through, definitely worth a stop in.

If you're looking for the best selection in NW Ohio, you really have to go to any of the Andersons. Not only are they a great general store with one of the best deli/meat/produce sections you'll find anywhere, but they have more beers than any other place in the Toledo area, all at great prices. The staff are fairly knowledgeable - perhaps not as much so as a dedicated "beer guy" at a bottle shop, but enough to point you in the right direction. If you're looking for some of the best brews distributed to Ohio, look no further.
