This is a nice find in the Fairlawn area of Akron. In general the road on which it is located is a good area for beer lovers. You also have a World Market, Acme, Thirsty Dog and Winking Lizard right nearby! Mustard Seed is located in the West Market Plaza not too far from I-77. This plaza is very busy but there is ample parking.

The beer selection is small but ecclectic. It is located in a cooler in the front left of the store. There are no macros to be seen, and they have a diverse selction from the likes of Wolavers, Moylans, GLBC, Bluegrass, Thirsty Dog, etc. A nice aspect is that they ask you to please take singles from a tub in front of the cooler, but if you dont see what you are looking for in there you are allowed to break up sixers. They even have a little chart showing you how much singles will be based on the six-pack price. Nice!

The beer knowledge is about what you would expect from an organic grocery store, but all of the employees I ran across during my visit were very pleasant.

All in all I would recommend this spot based on the fact that they are bound to have something worthwhile in your search.

A Whole Foods type upscale market, with a decent selection of beers. The staff is friendly but dont know what they are doing with the beer, and for some reason the foreign beers are in one aisle (warm) while the domestics are all in the coolers in another aisle. They have a variety of singles that you can choose from, and apparently (according to a worker that seemed less than certain), you can break up any six pack. Prices seemed pretty good, and domestic selection is ok. The main reason to stop here is to get a mixed six pack.

I used to frequent this place when I lived in the area. Gave them a call recently to see if theyd put some Thirsty Dog beer on hold for my dad to pick up for me and they were very helpful and willing. You can get Thirsty Dog beers by the 6-pack or individually. Ill have to scout out other beers they have in the store next time Im in town. Good little restaurant in the upper level too.

well, Ive been heading here occasionally for a couple years, and they have recently cut their selection in third or worse.. Still some neat finds, as I was here today they had a few lingering Dreadnaughts and some Double Bastards.. nothing really exceptional. I picked up a Arcadia Bourbon Barrel Porter and was on my way, still shelving 2010 Old stock ale, which is nice. Basic selection of belgians, your staples of the Ohio market such as thirsty dog siberian night and your Hoppin Frogs. This is cut way down from what they had at one point, down to 2 coolers and a 6ft shelf. from a full aisle. oh well its a good spot to try and find the off the beaten path ales that maybe the larger shops sold out of immediately.

This is a pretty cool and funky place in Akron that gets a nod everytime Im in the area with the family. Its kind of a Whole Foods for locals and hippies (rather than the yuppies who have infested most WFs.) There is a neat little restaurant that has had live music most times I have been there and people are helpful and friendly. Beer selection is decent, but not great. They do a good job finding some local brews that dont get good distribution, but most of the rest is widely distributed imports and domestics.

Smallish organic grocery store. A decent selection of singles, ranging from Rochefort and Dupont to Three Floyds and Avery. Nice representation of UK offerings as well. Prices were excellent, by PA standards...

Much better than the stores around home (NC), but the selection was not as big as at Acme which was right around the coner. They did have some 3L bottles of Arrogant Bastard there which Acme didnt have, but at $80 a pop I left them there.

The only place in Northern Ohio that I've found Westy 12. Nice variety of other Belgians too. Less than 1 mile from the Akron Thirsty Dog

Great selection of micros for a grocery store. Really, a hybrid of a health food store and supermarket. Worth a stop for either food or beverages.

Nice variety of singles, but not as big of a selection as the Solon Mustard seed. Basically a mostly organic grocery store w/ a pretty decent beer selection. However what they did lack in quantity of selection exceeded Solons quality of selection. For some reason there was a different selection of beer avaible in Akron as opposed to Solon.
