This place is pretty awesome. 101 Bottles of Beer on the Wall always has an absolutely stellar tap selection. Constantly rotating kegs. You are bound to find at least a few brews you enjoy on draft. A few perks... you are able to have a drink while you shop, and you can buy and fill a growler or just simply have your $4 Acme growler filled while you are there (that's me).
Food? OK, so they don't provide food at this place but there is a penn station right next door and a heated patio to enjoy a few beers and sub in the fall/winter time (or spring / summer).
The bottle selection is unlike any other in the area. They have some of most rare beers you could ever imagine (from a local shop). They have all your regular big name beers but so many beers that I almost guarantee you have not tried or have not been able to find (bold statement, I know).
They also have a cooler filled with with Kegs. Anything from your typical BMC beers or the more rare DFH 90 Minute kegs (again, sure there is something to spark your interest).
If you or someone you know is not a beer drinker, there is plenty of wine to choose from as well!
101 Bottles is about a 30-40 minute drive for me and I never leave disappointed. Service is hit or miss. They people that work their know beer! They love to talk brews and suggest beers you might like. Other times, they simply don't want to talk to anyone (I'll leave it at that :) ).
Also, they often have beer events including brewery tap takeovers. Recently they have had Bells Brewery, local winter / Christmas beers, and Three Floyds (in a few weeks) tasting/ tap takeovers.

Fantastic selection and a great tasting room with an awesome selection of beer that changes often. They have some wonderful events including Tap Takeovers and the occasional food truck. I have never been disappointed with Bottles 101.
Probably the best beer selection in Kent. You definitely need to hit the tasting room and browse the selection while sipping on an amazing beer.

Neat little tasting room and good bottle shop, but a step behind Lizardville in price and tap selection, and service. Some good taps on, but you have to find them yourself as list badly out of date. Most beers sold are refrigerated, and few six packs broken up.

Bottles is pretty consistent with a good variety of beers to try. The bar tenders are all pretty great folks and always provide a nice and much calmer atmosphere to any other bar in Kent. I find myself always looking forward to checking their listing each week for what new beers were added to the draught list. Most of the bar tenders there are also extremely knowledgeable and offer great insight. I definitely appreciate that. They provide a lot more than a bar with a billion IPAs on tap and for someone who isn't a big IPA fan, I like that.

A most impressive collection of brews. Fully stocked shelves AND coolers. You can also mix/match your own 6 pack. I've been to a LOT of beer stores, and this place can hang with the best of them. Personnel were knowledgeable of the beers. Being able to have a great draft and walk around the place whilst shopping or browsing a nice plus. Clean in the store, at the bar, and even in the men's room. This place is definitely worth looking up. Its not in a prominent place, but you won't be disappointed if you look it up.

A: Wow ! Shop for great beer and drink great tap selections while you shop ! Awesome !
Q: top notch quality all-around at this place, plus a nice patio, and if you like order a sub from next door and they will bring it over.
Serv: The guy knew his beer, and had his favorites to reccomend as well, pretty steady stream of customers and he knew alot of them by name, very good service, plus he threw in a couple of the store pint glasses in !
Sel: Wow ! top-notch selections ! Coolers all along the walls, snelves of beer, boxes, displays, walk-ins, tons of beer. I found the Alesmith family and scored Horny Devil, Old Numbskull, and Speedway Stout. Then I see Nightstalker in the cooler, 4 of them, plus 6 on the shelf ! Crazy !Found a Las Vegas Imperial Stout - Tenaya Creek, Epic Brainless on Peaches and Cherries, Troegs Doublebock and Flying Mouflan.
F:n/a unless you order from next door.
V: I think the prices were in line, no gouging here.

Why do half the reviews of this place mention Riverside? Interesting.
Anyway, this place has gotten 10 times better since the addition of the bar. There are over 20 tap handles to choose from, and it's all craft; no macros here. They also have a good assortment of flights, and from what I've heard, they have a good stock lined up for when kegs blow.
The atmosphere is quaint, since it's tucked to the side of the store. You can enjoy a beer without bothering the customers, and vice-versa. The crowd seems to be mainly beer geeks, with a few college kids coming over to try something new, which is always nice. I'd rather have a frat boy drinking Scrimshaw rather than Natty.
Service is pretty good. You get your beers quick, and the bartenders are pretty knowledgeable. They are the same guys/gals from the counter, so its a familiar face in a new role. I have one complaint about this, but I'll get to that later.
Selection, like I said earlier, is awesome. They have the standard fare for this area (Great Lakes, Thirsty Dog, Brew Kettle), along with some things that are pretty rare for the area (Alpha Klaus, Rogue Imperial Stout,). They've really done their homework on this.
Overall, it's a great place to hang out, have a beer, and relax. Some of the bartenders could be a little less "beer-snobby" and not show off everything they know, and the music selection is pretty bad, but overall, it's a great place.
