Decent selection with some make-your-own 6-pack options. Also has good wine selection. How’s lots of local options and some good imports and great options from the region.
Service is good, everyone is friendly but not everyone knows what they’re talking about. There are better options in the area, but this is by far the best place to grab craft beer close to OSU’s campus.

Descent create a six pack but only one cooler to choose from. I have lived 5 minutes away for 3 years and I never saw this place so its easy to drive by.

Small store, the best they have to offer is the create a six pack, nice selection there. Helpful staff, but not all that knowledgable or caring.

This is a relatively small store at the north side of the Ohio State University campus. They have a nice mixed cooler where they sell singles out of and a decent variety of sixers as well. The selection is decent but nothing to get excited about. The staff is very friendly and definitely willing to discuss brews with you though. However the bars on the windows and the small parking lot tend to take away alot from the ambiance.

I managed to stop out here. The owner was very nice and made a special point to show me what he had and what was new; he told me he could special order things too. The selection, though, was not astounding. You can find pretty much everything that’s here somewhere else for the same price or less, with the possible exceptions of some of the higher-alcohol 750s. I left this place empty-handed and went back to Kenny Road Market instead. The place near Andy’s is Pace-High, which stupidly doesn’t open ’til noon; so if you need a breakfast fix, I guess you could stop in at Andy’s.

As the name implies, Andy's is a short distance north of OSU. Not in the best part of town, but there is a small parking lot as well as street parking.
This is definitely a "must visit" place if you are on a beer crawl in the Columbus area. Andy's has a small convenience store look to it, but inside you will find a good selection of beers, both in coolers and on shelves.
Andy's has a newsletter that informs subscribers about current case specials, and that alone is reason to be on the subscription list. The case deals are unbelievable, and every once in awhile they snag a real gem (ie the now-defunct Miami Trails). They also have a small section devoted to high-ABV beers. Not only that, it is probably the only place you can get a growler of Barley's beer other than Barley's.
If you are visiting OSU they are worth a visit. The proprietor is on top of the beers he carries and is very friendly.
