I agree that this place is a little tucked away. It's off of a main road in a plaza and there are not a lot of signs to point you where to go. I like this place because of it's convenience. It is close to campus and actually has a decent selection of brews. I know too many college towns where the only option within walking distance is a gas mart with Natty light. a nice change of pace in this town. Service is alright, not exceptionally knowledgeable about their products but friendly. It's not too crowded either. I'll be coming back to this place for a while.

Fantastic selection and a great tasting room with an awesome selection of beer that changes often. They have some wonderful events including Tap Takeovers and the occasional food truck. I have never been disappointed with Bottles 101.

Probably the best beer selection in Kent. You definitely need to hit the tasting room and browse the selection while sipping on an amazing beer.

Neat little tasting room and good bottle shop, but a step behind Lizardville in price and tap selection, and service. Some good taps on, but you have to find them yourself as list badly out of date. Most beers sold are refrigerated, and few six packs broken up.

This place is pretty awesome. 101 Bottles of Beer on the Wall always has an absolutely stellar tap selection. Constantly rotating kegs. You are bound to find at least a few brews you enjoy on draft. A few perks... you are able to have a drink while you shop, and you can buy and fill a growler or just simply have your $4 Acme growler filled while you are there (that's me).

Food? OK, so they don't provide food at this place but there is a penn station right next door and a heated patio to enjoy a few beers and sub in the fall/winter time (or spring / summer).

The bottle selection is unlike any other in the area. They have some of most rare beers you could ever imagine (from a local shop). They have all your regular big name beers but so many beers that I almost guarantee you have not tried or have not been able to find (bold statement, I know).

They also have a cooler filled with with Kegs. Anything from your typical BMC beers or the more rare DFH 90 Minute kegs (again, sure there is something to spark your interest).

If you or someone you know is not a beer drinker, there is plenty of wine to choose from as well!

101 Bottles is about a 30-40 minute drive for me and I never leave disappointed. Service is hit or miss. They people that work their know beer! They love to talk brews and suggest beers you might like. Other times, they simply don't want to talk to anyone (I'll leave it at that :) ).

Also, they often have beer events including brewery tap takeovers. Recently they have had Bells Brewery, local winter / Christmas beers, and Three Floyds (in a few weeks) tasting/ tap takeovers.

Bottles is pretty consistent with a good variety of beers to try. The bar tenders are all pretty great folks and always provide a nice and much calmer atmosphere to any other bar in Kent. I find myself always looking forward to checking their listing each week for what new beers were added to the draught list. Most of the bar tenders there are also extremely knowledgeable and offer great insight. I definitely appreciate that. They provide a lot more than a bar with a billion IPAs on tap and for someone who isn't a big IPA fan, I like that.

A most impressive collection of brews. Fully stocked shelves AND coolers. You can also mix/match your own 6 pack. I've been to a LOT of beer stores, and this place can hang with the best of them. Personnel were knowledgeable of the beers. Being able to have a great draft and walk around the place whilst shopping or browsing a nice plus. Clean in the store, at the bar, and even in the men's room. This place is definitely worth looking up. Its not in a prominent place, but you won't be disappointed if you look it up.
Cheers!
