I popped in here today after a visit to the HopsShack. It is kind of secluded behind an appartment complex. I wasn't sure if I had the right place because it is a pool and spa store. Then I saw the Founders and Dogfish Head signs in the window. I walked in and was immediately greeted by an employee who directed me to the beer. There was not a huge selection, but it was a selection of quality beers that was an oasis in the beer desert that I live.

The staff was very friendly and accomadating. It seemed to be a family establishment. I browsed the selections and found some Founders, Dogfish Head, Southern Tier, Troegs, Bell's, Weyerbacher, and Crooked Tree, as well as some quality imports such as Westmalle, Rochefort, St. Bernardus, Weihenstephaner, and Aecht Schlenferla Rauchbier. I think the owner did a nice job of picking beers that were not common to the sea of BMC and common craft beers in our area.

This is a quality store that I will frequent as much as my schedule will allow. I called my buddy as soon as I got back with today's haul. It sure beats driving to Columbus or Wooster.

This place has some potential but . . . It needs a much, much better location. Marion has no craft bottle shops. Nothing better than Meijer . . . Yeah, that Meijer. So Marion is just begging for a store like this but as mentioned the location is just terrible !
Selection wasn't bad but wayyyyyyy toooooo olllllllddddd ! Seriously, ipa's three years old.
1) get a better location
2) get a knowledgeable staff
3) success !

Marion needs this . . . Put it where the people can see it and it will work

Frequent visitor of the Beer Corner at Leisure time..It is a pool and spa store and is kinda secluded but very easy to get to and easy to remember 1st road past Ziebart to the right if coming from the east on st rt 309.

I give the place 5 stars for selection and frequent it about every other week or so because of this. if you live in the mansfield area its an easy jaunt and has The BEST Selection of Singles within an half hr radius. Unless you want to drive to columbus or cleveland this is it in my questing for a sweet single selection.

$ prices are very reasonable as well.

from goose islands select beers like Sophie, everday greatness of Founders and Dog Fish, and Sours Like Jolly Pumpkin and The Brewery, this is a must stop if your in the area.
