After only seeing 2 reviews here, I decided to check this place out. It is now one of my main stops. I always like going in to see what is new and exciting. I usually only go for bombers, and I always check the fridge inside to see what kind of singles are available. The owner seems to be getting more fond of the singles, because every time I go in there as of recently the selection is completely different. I think he ususally just breaks down stuff that isnt selling in the coolers outside.

The coolers on the outside across the drive are loaded with 4/6 packs of micros: bells, founders, arcadia, great divide, new holland, GLBC, etc. And on the other side near the door is where the bombers are located. I always try and make it over here once a month because he usually gets a new shipment in. Last month I walked in and got Double Bastard, and in the singles fridge Bells Expedition, and Great divide Hibernation. Seasonals are usually up to date with the season in the 4/6 pack fridge, along with the bombers.

I walked in today and he had gotten a bunch of cases of Alesmith Old Numbskull and Horny devil in, along with Weyerbacher Tiny and New Holland Blue Sunday in bombers. I scored some Dark horse Special Reserve and the last Crooked Tree IPA in the singles fridge, along with some Troegs I have not had yet. The owner also informed me that he had some DH cream stout on hand and he would break the pack down for me if I came in later this week(he was busy). I will have to take him up on that offer and grab the Alesmith and a few other bombers I was eyeing as well! Also spotted Bear Republic Red Rocket and XP in the singles fridge. Definitely a place well worth checking out, the bomber and singles selection isnt huge, but it is rotated out often and you might find some rarities you have not found yet.

Don't know for sure but I think the name has changed since the "Maggiore's" sign out front is painted over...ANYHOW, definetly a great place to stop when in the area and check out the selection.
Pretty wide range with some hard to find off the wall stuff.
Everyone I have met here is really cool and helpfull if needed. Found Left Hand "Fade to Black" here when it seemed as if it were never going to make it's way to my fridge,was pretty cool and I am glad I stopped!
I always stop in just to say hello but always come out with something pretty awesome.
Kind of ironic but my Dad and I use to come here 35+ years ago and search for different beer cans for my collection when I was a kid, funny because I'm still searching after all these years and now I've got my son with me to help.

Well I figured since I added this store it is only fitting I do the first review.

This is my main beer stop in town. Its convenient as a drive-thru but they don't mind if you park and go inside and walk-thru either. When you first walk inside they mostly have wine that you see. There's a little stand which they display their big bottles. To the right they have a double door cooler with the top shelf consisting of single bottles and the lower shelves are their cheaper wines. Maybe 12-15 singles available. If you go to the right of the counter you can walk out to the drive-thru portion of the store.

When you first walk out to your right the first two cooler doors house their bomber selection. Stone,Weyerbacher,Avery, He'Brew are all represented there at the moment. Across the way (watch out for cars!) is a whole line of coolers where the crafts are. DFH, Great Divide, Great Lakes, Weyerbacher, Founders, Sierra Nevada, and Duvel are all there with many more.
I wish they did more single sales but until I can convince them some more I'm out of luck. I really enjoy this store. IMO this is the best beer store in town contrary to what anyone else might say. They are good about getting new products in and the staff is very nice and will talk about beer (not the most knowledgable, but they have an interest in it at least). They're open M-Th until 11 F & S until 12 and Su until 10 so that's also a nice thing.

I know all the places in town to get good beer and this is definitely my #1 stop. If you're in Canton Stop here first then check out Volkerts Party Store then Avenue Wine Shop and if you still need some more check out the Acme in North Canton and you should find what you need...if you can't find it in any of these places then it isn't in town! Hope this helps you guys out and happy beer hunting!
