I was very impressed with this store! They have an excellent selection of local brews, many of which are not available nationally. I bought a whole bunch to take with me back to Atlanta and sample.

The salespeople were very helpful in guiding me towards the craft brews and making suggestions. I would like to have found more porters and stouts, but I went shopping the day after the 4th of July so their stocks were a tad low. Nevertheless, I found two boxes full of single bottles to cram into my trunk.

I strongly recommend this to anybody who lives in, or is visiting, the Detroit area. Actually, after learning that there are over 80 craft brewers in Michigan - versus only three or four in Georgia - I think I'll move up there. ;)

The best way for me to explain this place is to say it's the only place I could find that could get a 1/2 barrel of Spaten Premium Lager. I must have tried a dozen other retailers, or more, with no luck. The keg was for use outdoors on a hot summer day and the night before I picked it up they would put the keg in the freezer to lower the temperature as much as possible, but not to freeze it. Obviously the level of service is outstanding. By the way, this wasn't a one time thing, I probably bought 10 half barrels of Spaten like this, 1 a year over a ten year period.

If you love beer like I do, please do your self a favor and either stop by or give Annette a call. You won't be disappointed.

Stopped in shortly after crossing the border on a recent trip to see a Tigers game. (July, 2013)
This store came highly recommended, and so we made sure to budget lots of time to drive out and check out the store. The store is located on a major thoroughfare, and has a large pay parking lot (they do validations, though!).

Excellent selection of Michigan area crafts as soon as you walk in the door - loads of Founders, Bells, New Holland, Atwater, and a few others in mix packs. Large refrigerated section of single bombers, bottles and four or six packs of mostly Michigan and local brews, but with a decent selection of other major breweries as well (Dogfish, Sierra, Pyramid, New Glarus, Sam Adams). Michigan stuff is seasonally based, good variety.

Large rack of Michigan singles, and a good selection of American crafts as well in the non-refrigerated area. Two short aisles of Belgian, English and German brews.

Staff were quite helpful, checking in with us from time to time offering suggestions. I inquired about getting some Bells or Founders glasses, and she explained about Michigan's beer glass labelling laws for a bit as being why they had such a poor selection. She apologized profusely, despite having no reason whatsoever to do so!

Prices were fair - under 10 for a pack of Two Hearted, and most singles were under $2. Spent about 60 bucks and got a pretty solid haul.

Simply put, if you're in the Detroit area, this is a great place to stock up on local brews. Merchants does an excellent job in promoting its local craft beer industry, and well they should.
