This Andersonís location is in the Sawmill/161 area of Dublin. It is a large general store/grocery store and has ample parking.

The Andersonís really surprised me the first time I went in. The store is deceptively small, but when you go in they have a grocery section, a home section, and most importantly a beer and wine section. The wine section puts just about any wine shop to shame, and dwarfs all of the supermarkets I have been to (with the exception of Jungle Jimís). The beer/wine section is on the right rear of the store past the registers. They have recently expanded the beer section to encompass several aisles including a couple sections of singles plus coolers..

The beer selection is nothing to sneeze at either. While they have an entire aisle of macros, they have several aisles for imports and craft beers. They have several hundred on hand, and an impressive array of single bottles. You can find a good array of bombers and gift sets as well. There is a section devoted to Ohio breweries like Hoppiní Frog, Indigo Imp, Brothers Drake, and Thirsty Dog. Many other domestic craft breweries like Stone, Ommegang, Lagunitas and AleSmith, plus imports from all over.

Service has been consistently good over the years I have shopped here. There are always personnel in the beer and wine sections available to answer questions.

I have not eaten at Andersons.

Overall Andersons has fone a good job in staying with the continual rising tide of craft beer in Columbus, and remains a solid option.

What a schizophrenic place. Part hardware store, part garden center, part appliance store, part Wegmans. The beer selection is really top notch with an outstanding selection of local and national craft, Belgians, Germans, and English. Prices are reasonable as well.

My initial reaction was shock at the sheer size of this place when I pulled up. Itís a giant grocery, hardware and garden store. I didnít wander much, mostly just checked out the beer. They also have a fair amount of beer and wine. The beer selection is good, though I though Plamers that I hit earlier in the day was better. They did have a fair amount of singles, and the prices seemed reasonable. The big drawback is the lack of service and beer coolers. I would imagine they move stock relatively quickly, though I would be careful with some of the more obscure labels. Overall, an interesting experience.

So I was in Columbus visiting family when my step-mother, who knows I like beer, is like you need to go Andersons they have lots of beer. Iím silently thinking give me a break! I live in Chicago, I have access to tons of beers! Being a good soldier I went along and boy was I happy. The beer selection was awesome. They had everything. They had Bells I havenít seen in Chicago, lots of trappist beers, and tons of 6 packs of great stuff. The best part was I came across Stone and Alesmith. I was like WTF? You cannot get either in Chicago. I found Stone oak aged arrogant bastartd, ruination ipa, alesmith speedway stout and IPA. Too bad I was only in town for 2 days. What a great selection. I will go nuts there over Chirstmas.

Part hardware store, part grocery store. Good selection of beer. Plenty of parking. Great selection of singles and good selection of four and six packs. Good prices and if you are near by you should go.

Stopped in on a Sunday a little before noon. Big parking lot, but it was still fairly full. The beer selection is in the front part of the store all the way to the right. They had a very large selection of imports and domestic craft. Severaal harder to find items were there, along with most of the usual suspects that just donít make it to my neck of the woods. They had a few taps of craft beer available for growler fills. Their Mead and cider selection was decent, and their glassware section had a few I had been wanting. Very successful trip and a place I will be stopping at again.

Andersons has a large selection of beer and an even bigger wine list. Lots of cold beer, large displays of seasonals, and lots of imports. Not as many singles as I had hoped, but some. Attentive staff. This is worth the stop if you are in the area.

Surprised I hadnít rated this. These places are great. I knew them from visiting Toledo and then hunted it down when we moved to Columbus. As good a selection as you can find at a grocery store. This location has a several long isles and hundreds of bottles. They tend to keep the pricier good stuff behind the bar area (which doesnít actually seem to pour anything or serve as a bar). Staff is usually knowledgeable and a few are big beer geeks. Always ask whatís new - Iíve had them pull 3floyds bottles out of thin air a few times. As a grocer itís also pretty good - produce ok, meat pretty great, middle isle stuff lacking, good wine - then also a random walmart vibe going on everywhere else. High marks for the bottle shop part.

Big grocery store with a nice beer selection. Came here specifically for Columbus IPA and picked up their Winter Beer as well.
