Since Hudson Wine and Spirits has closed down, this store is often my only option for finding new beer without driving across town. But, I could probably travel across the state and not find a grocery store with this kind of quality and selection.

An expansive state liquor department and a few rows of wine seperate the beer section from the front of the store. Two large cooler shelves hold the bulk of the beer, while a non-refridgerated shelf rests in the middle and a few rare/expensive beers are placed over in the wine section. Someone must put real effort into ordering what sells AND what is sought after by the select few. The trouble is, you can never find them. I did not see anything that looked out of date or dusty in the over 200 craft beers that were displayed. Some of the discounted singles were old, but for 79 cents you can find some real bargains.(Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout vintage '03)

Several Local breweries were represented, some of which I had never even heard of. The domestic selection is staggering, and they stock many fine Belgian imports including Chimay and Rochefort. They even have a few of those oversized bottles including a 100-ounce Double Bastard Ale and a 200-ounce bottle of some kind of Bavarian tripel. Lots of Bombers and 750's amoung the varied six-packs. This supermarket's choice of macros is actually very small and limited compared to the craft beer.

Besides the singles, most of the more expensive beer has been marked down at least once, and the majority is very reasonably priced so you are sure to get a good deal no matter how much you plan to spend. Personally, I don't even notice Hudson Wine and Spirits is gone.

Acme is a Grocery store located in The upper middle class suburb of Hundson. In terms of atmosphere, this is a grocery store, so, you know, most people there are buying groceries and not geeking out on beer like you are. Like many grocery stores, the selection is fairly limited, but his one does seem to have better selection than most. And this grocery store does have one rather impressive feature: a growler station. Six tps of fresh beer available for purchase at reasonable prices (most beers on offer we're $8.99 for 64oz). On my visit the taps on offer included Class of '88 smoked porter, Torpedo, and a couple of Jackie o's
What is available is decent. Great Lakes, FatHeads, Troegs, GI and dogfish head along with some other local brews. Nothing incredibly rare, but there was a good amount of quality seasonal beers and it was a decent selection none the less.
Service is as to be expected for a grocery store. That is mostly ambivalent and largely unavailable.
Good prices.

Abita - Strong showing
Flying Dog - Strong showing
Bell's - Strong showing
Stone - basic
Rogue - basic
Great Lakes - Strong showing
Corsendonk
Founders - Pale Ale, Dirty Bastard, BlackRye, Centennial IPA
Magic Hat - Strong showing and samplers
Goose Island - Strong showing
Unibrou - basic
3 Floyds - GumballHead, X Anniversary Ale

I bought 22 oz.
3 Floyds X Anniversary Ale - $12.99

Wow. All of these reviews so far talk about how great the selection is here. Obviously they haven't been to some of the other Acmes in the area. In comparison I found this one disapointing. The prices were on par for the area, but the selection here is lacking compared to other Akron beer stops. Nearly the entire stock was sixers or 12-packs - very few bombers or 750's were to be found. The selection was also overwhelmingly American, and with the exception of maybe Lindeman's Framboise, there was a noticeable lack of foreign beers. The service was also disapointing. I was literally surounded in the beer aisle by employees, but they seemed to care more about using foul language and making personal cell phone calls than in helping me. This isn't as bad of an establishment as I make it seem, and there's definately a whole lot of drinkable beer that is sold here, but it just can't compare to other beer stores in the area.

the best selection i've ever seen at a grocery store. whole aisles of deliciousness. glbc, predictably; rodenbach; alesmith (wee heavy, speedway and more); hennepin, rare vos; dupont; new holland; founders (including one of my new personal favorites: black rye); lots of flying dog; moylan's; stone; otter creek; goose island; harpoon; old dominion; abita; summit; chimay; atlantic; etc. etc.

the ability to combine my beer run with my food shopping is simply marvelous (and do a good job of both), and my perception is that prices are about what they are anywhere

not sure how to rank service; i wish i could just hit "pass." it's a grocery store, for cryin out loud

This is a grocery store? Wow. It looked more like a wine and beer store than the local Acme. We stopped here on our way to catch the Tribe game and I was very impressed. Huge selection of micros here, with all sorts of heavy-hitters (Old Raspy, Rogue impy stout, etc.). Mostly available by the 6-pack, there were also some bombers available. Very clean, well-lit, and stocked. Nobody available to help, but it looked like quite a bit of care and thought went into setting this up. Prices are quite reasonable.

Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area.

I think this place deserves a few bonus points since it's a grocery store. Anyway, they have a really nice selection of cold Micro sixers from around the country. They have some imports but nothing out of the ordinary.

No sign of a singles section.

To save time the beer is in the left front corner of the store.

With the combination of the Micro section here and Hudson Wine And Spirits right next door your set.
