Quite frankly, you are not going to find a better beer selection in Ohio. Iíve been to the best places in Cincinnati and Cleveland and they cannot compete with 101 Bottles. They may not carry every beer on the planet, but the beers they carry are the cream of the crop. I would rather have the best beers from a given brewery than everything mediocre that a brewery has to offer. I think people often confuse quantity with quality. The staff is very knowledgeable and always willing to offer suggestions to customers. In my opinion, I would rather have time to peruse their exceptional beer selection myself. As a craft beer connoisseur, I do not need someone hovering over my shoulder every five minutes asking if I need help anyway. Anytime I have asked a question about a particular beer, I have always received prompt, courteous service. I would strongly recommend anyone travelling through Northeast Ohio to stop in and see what 101 Bottles has to offer.

Nice little place in a little plaza in Kent. Lots of wine but a really good beer selection surrounding the perimeter of the store. Some really good finds. Weyerbacher, Mikkeller, Hoppiní Frog, Founders and Bells to name a few. Good prices on some of the bigger Belgian bottles. Staff was talking beer to some other customers but since we didnít really need any help, it wasnít that big a deal. They seemed knowledgeable though. Good stop in if you get the chance.

strolled in to check out the selection and quickly came up on a huge box of scores including speedway stout, some stone stuff and a mixed 6 pack. probably 12-15 coolers (all beer is kept cold here) and 2-3 of them are strictly 12oz singles for mixed 6 packs. emphasis on american craft with probably only 2 coolers on belgians or other foreign 750s/6packs. tons of local ohio stuff. in the walk in cooler there is a 10 page+ list of anything available in 1/6 barrel kegs, impressive list and mouthwatering at that! nice decor all around, real clean. pretty large wine selection also and the staff is glad to help. after about 5-7 minutes i had my beers in hand and was ready to leave as normal....ended up staying 2-3 hours drinking and discussing beer with justin and dave from hoppin frog. honestly one of the best beer experiences ive ever had anywhere. great selection and great service, im more then satisfied!

Some kind of dance music playing. Some college coeds working who never venture from behind the counter. Better selection than expected. Had alesmith, bruery, some local stuff, etc. More bottles and a larger selection of singles than riverside. I purchased some stuff that 101 bottles had but riverside didnít and vice versa. I would swing by both locations if you are in the area and have the time. If you can only go to one, I would go to riverside since they had some good beers on tap.

I have to disagree with mrbunn. I was the only person in the store every time that I have been in there, but the service has always been good and the last time I was in the aprox. 3 weeks ago the guy was more than helpful. I do like riverside a little more, because if the owner is there and you ask for something unusual, he will offer free samples of what they have on tap that is similar to your request. But that being said, 101 has a great selection, the best within 50+ miles good prices, and in my experience a very helpful staff.

Dumpy looking college town beer store from the exterior. Nice looking fancy wine store inside. Selection is better than Riverside with more singles available and slightly better prices on most things. Selection of local brews is very good, a pretty decent smattering of imports and other micros. Service is lousy. Iím not sure that I was acknowledged until I went to pay.

(Visited 03/2008): This store is located near the Kent State campus not too far from I-76. It is in a strip mall with a decent-sized private lot.
The store is very open-looking with a most of the product around the edge of the store. There are beer coolers containing sixers and singles along the left and rear. The right part of the store has wine, and there is also a walk-in cooler for what I assume is macro-type stuff.
The beer selection is pretty good, and there is a pretty good array of singles. Beers from Rogue, Stone, GLBC, Bellís and the like are next to some more rare brewers like Mad River. Imports from the UK, Germany, Belgium etc are mixed in as well.
The service is about what you would expect at a campus-area beer stop. The guy wasnít rude but wasnít particularly helpful either. He kind of just stared at me as I walked by the cashier stand.
Overall I would lean toward Riverside for beer purchases because there you can have some gourmet cheese and a pint of something good while you deliberate your purchase. Still, this place is worth a look if you are in the neighborhood.

A very clean, organized beer and wine store. They have a wide selection of great beers to chose from. Not the rarest of finds, but numerous great beers available. Worth the stop if you are nearby.
