Atmosphere- Great place to hangout. Always have samples to eat and drink. Live music a couple nights a week.
Quality- Great selection of everything you could think of. They usually have an organic option for whatever it is you may need. Store is clean, inviting and great.
Service- Almost always asked if I need assistance. The cashiers are sometimes pretty bitchy.
Selection- One of the best selections in the area. All the regulars, but some things you can only get there. Always have the seasonal DFH 750s and Goose Island bombers.
Value- You won't find anything cheap, but they also don't try to kill you.

Would have never set foot in here if it weren't for the reviews on this site. Have been in here quite a few times, and the second and third time I walked out with about 30 bucks worth each time. Not the biggest selection ever, but the quality of the selection is great. I have found quite a few rarities such as Jolly Pumpkin which I rarely see anywhere else.
Also in the room temperature aisle of beer, they have almost all of the North Coast beers in 4 and six packs, I have not seen the old stock ale anywhere else that I would have noticed. They also have a few interesting imports, such as Japanese beer I saw, which I may have to give a shot some time, a bit expensive for a 12 ounce but I will try em out.
They were well stocked up on Christmas seasonals the last time i stopped in. I got Thirsty Dog Christmas, Anchor Christmas, Breckenridge Christmas, DFH Chicory Stout, Bells Double cream stout, and Stone/Brewdog Bashah(only place I have seen this).
They also had a select few Brewdog I have never seen, and a decent selection of bombers that are a bit hard to come by. Can't really remember to full lengths what they had, because I was in and out of there after I found what I wanted and havent had yet haha. But it is definitely worth a visit, quite a few rare gems in there. And the service is good as well, there was a guy in the beer section stocking and asked if I was anything I was looking for in particular.
They also mix 6 packs which is nice, and they split the price of the bottles off a six pack exactly. There is a chart above the fridge that shows the price of a 6 and/or 4 pack and the price the single would cost. Really awesome they don't jack up the singles price at all.

Although the selection isn't the widest in the area, MSM has the most reasonable prices in the area. As most of the other stores who will break up six packs they up charge singles a little but MSM up charges probably half of what the other guys do. And most of their beer hasn't been sitting for too long where as with a lot of the other grocery stores you can't help but wipe the dust off. Buying singles gives me the opportunity to try some pricey beers at a fraction of the cost and in the enjoyment of my own home. MSM is my clear first choice in the Akron area.

I wish someone would have mentioned that this is basically a hippy grocer. I smelled fresh herbs and spices when I walked into the place, very pleasant scent. The tea isle has an amazingly wide selection.
I wandered around for a while until I found the beer. There wasn't a whole lot to choose from. I was disappointed that there were so few options available. Dont' get me wrong, the actual beers that were available were excellent, but the quantity wasn't there.
I didn't really need help, so it's hard to rate the service... The guy who bagged my groceries seemed impressed with my selections. I grabbed an Arrogant Bastard and something from Avery that I don't recall... But he was all like "Have fun, man." I think he wanted to give me a high five or something, but there was another customer so he couldn't take the time.

I used to live in the Akron area, but only visited this store a few times. Last week I stopped in again while in town for a concert. This is basically an upscale grocery store, more similar to Trader Joes than Whole Foods. The beer selection was OK, but not really as wide as I'd hoped. I saw most of the Unibroue beers available to the USA, a few Belgian ales, and lots of US microbrews. There really wasn't anything too special (hard to find) on the shelves, but you could definitely find something good. The prices were about average for the area, maybe just a few dimes more expensive per 6-pack. If you're in the area I would skip this place and go to Acme, they have a much wider selection and pretty low grocery store pricing.

The beer here is split into two sections, a small refrigerated space with mostly American beers, and a section near the wine that features mostly foreign beers. The selection isn't large, but the quality of their offering is very good. This place always seems to have shipments of new beers, and had the 2006 Stone Old Guardian and ROgue's seasonal offering on this visit, and on my last, there were several winter brews available. An employee was in the beer aisle while I was perusing and offered a six-pack carton as my arms were full of beers. Definitely worth a visit.

The store is a bit hoity-toity and the beer selection isn't as large as the Acme store right down the street, but they do allow you to buy singles out of the six packs. The woman stocking the beer cooler when the group I was with showed up, seemed to be pretty knowledgeable about beer and her suggestions were better than I would expect from even an organic market. The selection was a little different from Acme in that they had some stuff Acme didn't and vice versa, so stopping at both would be advisable.
