Went here with Kzoobrew while in Kalamazoo.

Walking in the store was bustling with people on a Friday afternoon. The quality was pretty good. Lots of shelves stacked with great beers, and lots of coolers keeping beers nice and cold. The selection was nice. Lots of Short’s beers, and plenty of other Michigan brews. No one really asked if we needed help, though at the checkout the people were incredibly friendly. The prices were on par with what I would expect. There was a huge plus here in that they allow six packs.

I would definitely come here again when I am in Kalamazoo.

This place has it all—something for the college students looking for a cheap buzz, and shelves and shelves (and shelves) of craft beer, sold in singles and sixers. Prices tend to be average or slightly above, and the good stuff goes quickly. But what a selection!

Nice shop in Kalamazoo, some great beers hang out on the shelf and some don't make it past lunch, they seem to do a great job limiting "rare" beers so more of us get a chance to try them. When in Kalamazoo it's worth a stop.

Other reviews cover this place well...

Excellent selection, including all the quality Michigan micros I was interested in....plus loads of other craft options- local,regional,national, and international

As a bonus they also carry a mess of disc golf discs.... Go - you will not be disappointed

Tied with Mega-Bev as the best bottle shop in Kalamazoo. They do Twitter and Facebook alerts of new beers and do holds which is an insanely nice thing to do and creates a lot of customer loyalty. Only complaint really is that they price their singles a bit high and I wish they kept more IPAs in the fridge. I guess also, they don't carry as many imports as Tiffany's or Mega-Bev.
