I just recently heard about this store and had to go check it out based on the previous reviews. They have an amazing selection of beers, especially a lot of Michigan ones. The store is very clean, open, and easy to navigate. I ended up talking for a while with a guy who was working there and found out he was Mark. He was a very cool guy that definitely knows his beer - he showed me a bunch of stuff he has in his "cellar" in the back. He also said they got one of the three cases of GI BCBVS in the state of Michigan. Also, the prices were great - much less than a few other places I went.

As we were leaving, he gave me and my friend a bottle of two Short's beers that we had talked about with him. What a great place and a nice guy - I'll be back next time I'm in Michigan for sure.

Mark is the owner of this excellent establishment. His knowledge of beer, wine, liquor and cigars is phenomenal. If a university needed a professor for a beer, wine, liquor and cigar class, Mark would be their man. His selection has reached over 1100 bottles of beer. These range anywhere from mass market breweries to small local microbreweries.

A great thing about this store is the "wish list." If you can't find a beer (unlikely), Mark probably has connections and will do what he can to get you what you need.

If you are passing through the northern Detroit area, you have to stop at this exceptional store, it is clean, the selection is great and the service is exceptional!!

This was my first time going to Pineridge. I only live about 10 miles away but hadn't heard of it until it was mentioned here on BA. I went in to pick up the new limited Short's brews.

Having never been there I started browsing around trying to find where the Short's were and they do have an absolutely massive selection. I have no problem believing their claim of 800 different beers. I saw quite a few things here that I've never seen in person.

Pretty much everything looked up to snuff quality wise. Everything was organized nicely and their wasn't an inch of dust on anything. Cleaning this store must be a real pain in the ass! The only knock I have is the Sierra Nevada Porter bottles with the powder blue label. I know they changed it almost a year ago now.

Through all my browsing I never found the Short's I was looking for so I went up to the front and asked the guy working the front if there was any left. Sure enough he had some back behind the counter. I later came to find this was Mark. He seemed very knowledgeable and also seems to have a real love for beer. He let me know that he keeps all the limited releases behind the counter and offered me up the others he had at the time. I also got added to their mailing list.

Overall I had a great experience at Pineridge. Prices seem about on par with other stores in the area. Cloverleaf in Royal Oak is a little bit cheaper but considering this shop is about 15 miles closer the cost probably balances out. Needless to say I will be visiting regularly from now on. Wallet permitting that is.

Pineridge is my go to store for hard to find beers.

Located on Milford Rd right off M-59.

When it comes to quality you won't find much of a better place. The store is clean, well kept, and the beer is well rotated. You won't find stuff on the bottom shelves covered in dust. For micro brews they keep a little "specials" selection of newer items right up front.

Service is really good too. Mark is always willing to help me with whatever I need. He's always pointing out the new items he knows I would love. He also told me he would try to get whatever it is I might be looking for. He has made calls right on the spot while I'm trying to pick out a beer. In March he put my name down for a four pack of KBS and he guaranteed I would get it. Sure enough, I called a week later and it was sitting there with my name on it.

Pineridge has a huge selection of macros, micros, wine, mead, and liquor. Founders, Bell's, Stone, Jolly Pumpkin, Dark Horse, Arcadia, Arbor, Delirium, Great Lakes, Sierra Nevada, Kuhnhenn, etc. The list goes on and on. They also have mead like Viking Blod and outstanding liquors like Bookers.

Overall, an outstanding store to grab some beer. It's not exactly cheap but it's definitely not overpriced. I gave it $$$ because a lot of stuff is decently priced but some things make you scratch your head when you look at the price tag.
