This is one of those wonderful Michigan entities lovingly known as a party store. Tons of hard liquor, tons of wine, gourmet and non gourmet foods and, of course BEER. Got to love a state where you can go to ONE store and get everything you need for a good party.Worthy selections from Bells, Jolly Pumpkin, Stone, DFH, Chimay, Arbor brewing and plenty of others, I cant remember. Just a few minutes south of Ann Arbor. Worth a stop if in the area. This place is located under a mile from my mother in law's new place, making my visit to that sweet woman's ;-) home a little more enjoyable.

I was brought here by my cousin and told this was the spot to come for craft in his area.he was right.not only was the selection great but the overall layout was nice.i was able to find some gems and also some beers ive never seen on the western part of the state.after looking and picking out some beers i met reggie.this guy was great.not only did we discuss some common interests about beer he treated me with a gift.the only bad thing i can say was due to the storms that had rocked the area the night before the power was only partially working and the temp in the store due to the pizza ovens was overwhelming but hey that why theres cold beer.i will visit again and return a gift to reggie who really made my day!thanks again!!!great buisnesses have great people.

I grew up near this place, and have watched it change hands over many years. It always seemed to get better, especially since they got more an more into good beers as I grew closer and closer to 21! Anyway, I was back visiting my folks and thought I would stop in and just browse the selection. I picked out a few things (I think I had Dogfish Head 90 min. and Stone Arrogant Bastard) and headed toward the register. When I got there, I saw a bottle of unclaimed, for sale Samuel Adams Utopias. I cannot find that anywhere, I had never even seen a bottle of it before. Needless to say, I left the IPAs there on the counter and walked to my car with Utopias. A great place to stop and shop...you never know what you might find just hanging around!
(I have not tried the food, but the pizza looked and smelled great!)

This place earned my buisness today!!! I stopped in to grab some Backwoods Bastard and got to talking with the beer guy and said how much I love Backwoods Bastard and KBS but never was able to get KBS in a bottle only on tap, he said "I may have something in the back you might want" so when he returned he had a bottle of this years KBS and a 2011 KBS, asked if I wanted them. I could'nt beleve it, great thanks. The selection they have is not huge but it is of excellent quality. I will go back again in a heartbeat!!!

Stopped in on the way through Ann Arbor for a business trip. Very nice selection of 4/6-packs, as well as lots of bombers and 750's. Most of the usual suspects which are distributed in MI were here, from what I saw, as well as some quality off-season items they had brought out from the cellar. Lots of Jolly Pumpkin, including some harder to find stuff like Baudelaire IO.
There was a table with a variety of singles, and they also allowed us to break up 4/6 packs for our own singles without any issue whatsoever (without prices getting jacked up).
The highlight was the friendly, attentive service we received when we were there. One of their beer guys Dom saw us checking out the selection of beers and checked to see if we had any questions. He pointed out some recommended bottles, and even grabbed a couple great bottles from the cellar for us that had been out of rotation everywhere else for awhile.
Conveniently located just a few miles off of 94 in an unassuming shop amdist some farmland.
Highly recommended for anyone rolling through/past Ann Arbor.

I was in town for a conference and just missed the 10pm closing time on Thursday night.
I returned the next day for lunch and to pick up some beer for the weekend.
The selection was great. They had it sorted by areas and styles. All of the Michigan micros were well represented.
One of the employees, in charge of the beer stock, asked us if we had any questions. We got in a nice discussion and he pointed out the more unique and newer beers in stock. I was with a few friends, so he gave us some glassware to drink from. That's nice as drinking from hotel cups sucks.
We grabbed subs and sandwiches at the deli counter. It was good. The sandwich bun was actually a pizza crust. My friend said that was interesting.
I'll definitely go back next time I'm in the area. Just a short drive off the main highway.
