This place has a decent selection of craft and import beers. None of the hard to find stuff, just the basics here, but there are lots of good ones. They also have some decent wines, and spirits.

Their inventory seems to all be fresh. I checked the best by dates on several beers and all were o.k. There were some bottles with dust on them.

The service is normal for a chain. You wont get much help here, but your buying beer not a new car.

All beers are at state minimum pricing.

This store isn't as well stocked as some of their other locations but you will still find something worthy of drinking here.

This place is just a liquor store with a few good beers. It's located in a strip mall by Hallmark and Subway. I had forgotten to write this on my list of destinations, but out of the blue it was right before me. Strange how these things happen. They did not have anything I needed after visiting the Toledo area stores. A modest six pack selection. A couple Belgian offerings. In and out type of affair.

Service was the extent of, "Can I help you find anything?" To which I replied "Do you carry Alesmith?" I had already seen the entire store seconds earlier and I knew he didn't have any. The guy looked puzzled like he had never heard of it. "Alesmith?" Zing! Crappy service! Okay, average. At least he asked me if I need help right? Know your beer!

Selection was pooh. It probably had enough stuff to keep a person from resorting to something painful, but overall it was a paltry assortment. I am not even going to get into it because they had nothing out of the ordinary. So, a good emergency store. If you have no car or the rest of the world is zonked by a nuclear blast, go here. But if you can't afford a car, you shouldn't be buying beer. And if a nuclear bomb goes off you might have other more pressing matters to attend to than looking for the Alesmith IPA that you couldn't find anywhere else. Alright.

Minotti's have a nice selection of wine, hard liquor, beer and of course lottery tickets. They keep all of their beer in the back at room temp and in a fridge. They put all of their craft beers (except for the Great Lakes) at room temp and the macros in the fridge. I think it should be the other way around. In the middle of the floor, that is where they put the beer sampler packs. For example, the Sam Adams seasonal 12-pack and the Samuel Smith 3-pack.

The service there is good, but I don't think they have anyone there that would know anything about the beer. They sometimes have little slips of paper underneath the beer that gives some information about the beer.

Their selection consisted of many fine imported craft beers, like Chimay, Orval, Unibroue, Eggenberg, Spaten, Celebrator, Melbourne Bros. and many more. They also had a fine selection of American craft beers like, Great lakes, Brooklyn, Anderson Valley, Ommegang, and Sam Adams. That was just a sample of the beers they had.

The prices on some of the beer is reasonable, but some of them can be some what expensive. When your there, make sure you check the date on the bottles. They are known for selling expired beer.

If your ever in North Ridgeville and looking for a craft beer to buy, make sure you stop here because it's the only place that sells fine craft beers.
