One of the better beer selections in Northwest Ohio (although I think Stimmel's in BG has the best), in a huge market. Anderson's is part Home Depot, part quasi-gourmet food store, and it's unusual seeing a large display of ice scrapers and bird seed next to a stack of Celebration Ale....Still, it's a good beer setup, and the employees were friendly, albeit far from experts. The big complaint: 95% of their beer is warm on the shelf, which is especially bad for the unpasteurized brews from Great Lakes, Bell's, etc., and I don't think they turn their beer well - I've bought several bad beers from them over the years.

This is one of my goto stores in the Toledo area. The selection is quite good, but not as good as a couple other stores in Toledo, including the Talmadge Rd. Anderson's. About the only good beers you'll find in the cooler are the Great Lakes beers, and a few from Sam Adams. The do occasionally get something other area store don't. I've seen Fantome on a nondesctript end cap, and I've yet to see it anywhere else in the area.
One of the strong suits of this store is the singles selection. You can buy one bottle of just about anything they have.
For those of us who live west of Toledo, this is the most convenient beer store of note.

Plenty of variety in foreign and domestics. Good pricing and easy checkouts. of micro-brewed beers in the displays. There are plenty of singles to select from and packs provided. Like the other Anderson's this is a store that mixes some pretty odd goods. But that being said it's hard to not stop by to see what's in stock. This is an early location and has plentiful parking.

This is one of the best selections I have seen around Toledo. They have a lot more than what the Anderson's in Northwood has. They also have a lot of beers that Josephs does not carry.
One thing I like about the Anderson's is that they seem to move their beers more than Joseph's. I usually am not afraid to get a skunked beer from Anderson's like I am at Joseph's.
A great selection of bell's, left hand, AleSmith, Stone, and Rogue. A great place to buy beer.
I did not see if they have many beers in the coolers but they did have a lot of singles to choose from.

During a family visit, I had to check out Andersons.
Quality: The store is clean and the beer aisles are orderly. There is some rhyme and a bit of reason in the organization, with domestics occupying two aisles, the Belgians an end unit and the English and German offerings on a separate aisle.
Service: Service at check-out was pleasant if not slow (we had to have someone over 18 check us out due to state law), but I can't hold compliance with the law against them.
Selection: Great selection. Lots of Bell's, Founders, Great Lakes and Stoudts (even in NW Ohio, Stoudt's rules) dot the aisles. I went with Fuego de Otono and Noel de Calabaza, Avery Fifteen, some Bell's that doesn't make it to Central PA, a sixer of Red's Rye and a Great Lakes variety 1/2 case. Pretty nice haul for a little place.

The Andersons in Maumee is like the little brother of The Andersons in Toledo. At least beer wise. This store has a huge selection of beers in 6 packs, 4 packs, bombers, and single 12 oz. I go to this store more than the Toledo one because it's closer to me, but the toledo one has a lot bigger selection of single 12 oz bottles. However, these two are definitely the best store in the area for buying beer. I usually spend 2-3 days a week here browsing the beer aisles and spending more money than I should be on their beer selection. If you're in the area, you need to check this place out! The price is also very reasonable, I haven't seen anything here that is higher than anywhere else. The Anderson's is a fantastic place for beer!

There's not all that much to say given that I've rated The Andersons both in Toledo and in Sylvania. For some reason, this is the only chain massive everything store that carries the selection of beers that it does. The only places I can go for this kind of selection are Marino's in Sylvania or another Andersons. As with the others, the selection is very large and a lot of it is of the highest quality. I can get plenty of fantastic beers and still come back for more I haven't tried. There are a few things they don't always have, but they're usually pretty willing to order something. Whoever's working there, while not always easy to find, is always helpful.

a "general" store that has been around for some time now. a place to go get a lawnmower, grass seed, and craft beer. the selection was very good, excellent variety. a lot more kegs than i expected. some employees around and they were willing to offer assistance in finding brands and or types. good selection of Bell's, 3F, Great Lakes, as well as plenty of imports. and they were reasonable in their prices as well.
certainly a place that i will be willing to visit again. it is also easy to get to and not far from me.
suckem up and movem out.

If you're looking for the best selection in NW Ohio, you really have to go to any of the Andersons. Not only are they a great general store with one of the best deli/meat/produce sections you'll find anywhere, but they have more beers than any other place in the Toledo area, all at great prices. The staff are fairly knowledgeable - perhaps not as much so as a dedicated "beer guy" at a bottle shop, but enough to point you in the right direction. If you're looking for some of the best brews distributed to Ohio, look no further.

The Anderson's is not a 'Big Box Store' or a 'Chain'. It is, as its name suggests, a general store. Locally owned and operated, the store is situated just across the street from the families' grain operation.True one can purchase building supplies, tools, work wear, major appliances, trees and ornamental plants, as well as general goods, The Market is the main focus here.
The Marketplace has grown from a basic sort of grocery into a Mecca for quality Deli goods, gourmet coffees, an excellent meat market, and extensive wine shop.Then of course the reason we're here, BEER! Far and away the regions best selection and as this is widely known, product turnover is very good(this to me is what sets it apart from some well stocked carry-outs or Party stores). I would estimate 300+ imports, domestics, micro-brews, craft brews, and seasonal offerings.Most of these offered in singles, but also a great cold selection (including a beer cave), growers and mini kegs also available. Usually staffed by a beer and wine guru, able to answer questions or special order something for you.
If your from here, I'm sure you already know, if your passing through, definitely worth a stop in.
