Probably the largest selection of brews in Grand Rapids. More cooler space than other local stores as well. They know beer, and carry just about all available craft beers.

Prices are a bit higher that other area stores, except Founders which is always "on sale" for $7.99/six pack. They support the local guy and I like that.

They seem to stock a lot of out-of-date seasonals like 2005 Oktoberfest in August 2006. I'll bet that the quality is still fine however.

They also have a huge wine selection, if you're so warped. :-)

I stop in to this store in Grand Rapids once in a while when I'm driving by. They have a HUGE selection of beer, and a also a large selection of wines. I've never really stumbled through the wine aisles, so I can't comment on that aspect. But the beer selection is tremendous. This place carries almost every local beer I know of. The pricing can be either hot or cold. Overall, I would say its a little pricey, but they do always have 1 or 2 items on sale for dirt cheap... probably due to overstock I would imagine. Always the same friendly guy behind the counter, although he'll say anything is good just to get you to buy it. Nice store here, stop in and check out the selection if your ever in the area.

This place was representing hardcore with huge Founders posters adorning the windows. Inside you can find a decent chunk of brews. Full cases of Founders were stacked on the floors. I think they had most of the Dark Horse family ( notably Thirsty Trout that I had not run into prior to stopping in ). A semi rectangle of warm sixers representing a fair selection lies across from the cooler. Nothing to get all excited about really. They have a little import section which I passed up in favor of checking out the American areas. The cooler didn't have much going on inside. Most of the stock was on the warm shelf. No friggin singles except for some foreign stock immediately inside the door. This is disappointing. I did not see anything there that I wanted a quantity of, so I made no purchase. An alright place to go if you want commonly found sixpacks. Nothing to call mom about.

As kleing said this is part party store/part beer store. Only one worker working behind the counter. He will help if asked a question but he doesn't usually volunteer his services. And he always says that the beer is excellent, i dont know if he's even tried it, because he's never descriptive on why it's supposedly so good. They have a really good micro selection and a solid Belgian selection. Their stuff doesn't really move too well, i got a 2002 Bell's Rye Stout just last week! But I go sometimes to see what new Belgian's they have, some I don't see anywhere else in GR.
