Alright selection as far as groceries go. Have a decent amount of imported sixers and singles, howver alot of the singles are sitting there on the shelves collecting dust. Plus some clear glass bottles are exposed to light. Probably one of the better places in the area to snag some beer.
This place is one of the better in Columbus for beer shopping. I can get lost in the aisles for hours here while my wife shops for other things. There are 4 aisles of 6 packs both imported and domestic microbrews. Even some ratebeer ratings up on the shelftags letting you know the good ones. The people that work in the wine and beer department are always willing to lend a hand if you have a question and seem fairly in the know. There is a good selection of belgians and other singles on the end caps by the cooler. The fun part is checking out with your Arrogant Bastard or Entire Butt Porter though. The cashiers always seem to get a laugh at that. A pretty good store for the beer lovers in columbus!
Medium-sized market with an indoor appearance reminiscent of a natural foods store. High-quality groceries, housewares, etc. The staff is superbly friendly but seems more knowledgeable about their wine than their beer; the cashiers have been some of the friendliest I have ever dealt with. A disappointing number of 12 oz singles, but a few small shelves of bombers, aisles of micros and macros, and a few coolers make this place worth the trip. And if you are looking for wine, you must stop here. Nice place.

This Anderson’s location is in the Sawmill/161 area of Dublin. It is a large general store/grocery store and has ample parking.
The Anderson’s 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 Jim’s). 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 Hoppin’ 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.
Its a large general store, no ambience to rate really. They have some interesting groceries on the shelves though. They have a fairly decent selection of British and Eastern European beers here, and this was also the first place I ever saw Hitachino beers. Unfortunately many of the clear glass British ales are sitting out in fluorescent light. Also their beer is scattered. One aisle contains sixpacks, at the ends of a couple different aisles are some single bottles. Another rack opposite those found some Eastern European lagers. At a cooler nearer the produce section I found some Stone and Stoudts hiding out. Good stuff to be found, just keep looking.
