Pretty good selection of alcohol in general. Wine galore.

6 one side racks (or 3 racks you can access from both sides if you like) of beer. Very expensive by Canada's standards believe it or not! Good selection though.

My buddies and I visited yesterday all the way from Vancouver, BC. You never really know what to expect based off reviews and pictures, but this place sure didn't disappoint. What a treat! The selection was great as we were able to fill about 4 different mixed 6 packs of stuff we could never find back home: Bells, Founders, Shorts, Odd Side, Great Lakes....unreal.

Once we finished with the singles, we made our way to the rest of beer and wine, and again, we were blown away with the selection and value.

The service was great as well. Lots of help when we needed it, and were even sent away with a few 'special treats' from Michael the beer guy. Unexpected, but very appreciated.

What a great store!

I have shopped at Champanes for few years, great selection of beers at the best prices around the metro Detroit area, single bottles are available in coolers towards the front of the store, the six packs are displayed in the North West corner of the store, people are friendly and try to help you find what you need, Michael 'The Beer Guy' is always helpful.
Champanes carries lots of wine and other adult drinks, Dean, Dave and the rest of the crew are very helpful in selecting a drink for a occasion or for a specific purpose, I highly recommend this store.

(Visited 08/2011): Champane’s is located on the north side of Warren on Chicago Rd. There is a large lot out front.

The interior is large and open, and the beer selection is mainly in the rear of the store but there is a cooler full of singles at the front of the store.

The main selection (several hundred) is in aisles and there is a solid array of craft brewers represented both from Michigan and from across the country. Founders, Shorts, North Peak, Arbor, Dark Horse etc along with Anchor, Great Lakes, Rogue and many more. Imports from Oud Beersel, Mikkeller and the like.

Service at Champane’s is pretty good. Everyone was friendly and I was asked if I needed help finding anything.

Overall this is a very good spot to hit in the Royal Oak/Warren area.

Went in recently on a trip to see Kuhnhenn and Dragonmead and was astonished at the prices more than anything. The selection was very solid, especially in regards to Mikkeller offerings that are seldom seen elsewhere, but I can't think of anything I saw at this store that costed less elsewhere. I was in constant amazement. The layout was nice and was sorted in regards to brewery which made browsing quite easy. The aisles were also nice and fairly spacious which made it comfortable too.

The customer service was quite nice as (Michael? I believe) was able to find some Backwoods bastard from the back, and he also mentioned the potential to hold special releases if calling in ahead. He also offered me a bottle of the DFH Pearl Jam collaboration as well which they only received a case of.

All in all it was a very positive experience, and due to the incredible pricing, I'm sure this will be my first option. The fact that the selection was solid was icing on the cake. I can't imagine many old beers accumulating here with the prices as well.

This place is highly recommended, and the gas it takes to get here from any other store in Warren is likely to be saved from the prices on beer if not more. I've only been here once, but I'll update this if any of my next experiences are less than how great my first was.
