Plenty of dedicated parking right in front. Big selection of beer for a Krogers, probably the best I have seen. Refrigerated 12 oz. bottle in the far front right corner, just before the restrooms. The big bottles and six-packs are at the front left. The didnít have this selection of beer when I went to OU. Nicer Krogers with extended selection of food and gasoline station out front.

Some people think this is just a Kroger, but the selection here goes far beyond the typical Kroger or typical grocery store. As youíd expect, you will find tons of macro stuff, but they also have tons of US micros and a lot of local stuff including lots of Jackie Oís, including all the limited stuff available anywhere else. Beyond that, they have a separate liquor store and a tasting station. Singles are outside of the liquor area on the opposite side of the store from the rest of the beer. Prices are OK, customer service was what youíd expect and prices were decent.

Stopped in on a Friday evening while the wife went into Jo-Anns. The place is sort of in the same shopping center as a strip mall. It has a pretty big parking lot, as I would expect of a grocery store. The beer selection can be found in two places. The biggest, where you can find six packs and larger format bottles is in the front of the store to the left as you walk in through the front doors, the build your own six pack section is through the front doors to the right close to the restrooms and a cafe type area. Thereís nothing too crazy in the mix section, but I was able to easily build a six pack of stuff I hadnít rated yet and it only cost me ten bucks. Not too bad I thought. For a Kroger, I was very impressed. It blew the ones closest to me out of the water. Itís worth stopping in if youíre in Athens for a Jackie-Os event if you have any money left over.

Krogers bought out the old Lucky Dog store awhile back and now has most of their selection. Selection consist of a corner cooler with macro imports, a few bombers, and SA and Sierra along with a few other 6ers. There is also one shelf of warm 6ers, about 12 feet long, both sides full of popular micros and ciders.
The grocery part is one of the better ones around.
Now that Bella is closed this is about the only place to get craft beer except for that drive-thru on Richmond, what ever it is called, in Athens(not including Jackies). And this is where they have Beer Week in Ohio?

The Kroger in Athens, OH, recently expanded their craft beer selection quite a bit. From what Iíve seen, it might be the biggest in Athens, OH. Service is par for a Kroger. You ask them where the beer is, theyíll point you to it. I donít expect Kroger employees to be craft beer experts, itís a grocery store, but they are happy to help where they can. New this year, they have a big open cooler for building your own six pack. You can choose any 6 bottles in the stand, for a flat $10. A really nice convenience.
