I've been up to Grand Rapids twice in the past month and have made it a point to stop by the top bottle shop in GR, Siciliano's, while visiting.
Siciliano's had a broad range of Domestic and International bottles and a participatory good selection of Belgians. The shop only sells by the bottle, which makes their shelves of 4-packs and 6-packs a bit pricey.
Both times I've stopped in, I've had a hard time finding anything terrible exceptional. Like many shops, I'm sure they get some whales in from time to time, which probably vaporize within hours but even in talking to the staff, I was told they simply don't have much of that kind of stuff and I should keep an eye on their Twitter feed.
I agree that its without a doubt the best bottle shop in the area, but on par with other shops in the Midwest, I think it's a bit below the A+ its been given on BA. Perhaps their rather large Home Brew shop lifts their score... but as a bottle shop, I've seen stores more deserving of such a high score.
Nice selection, single bottles, good international variety.

what an amazing place. Pretty much perfect. I suppose if I've got one minor gripe it's that they've really crammed so much in there that it was tough in a few spots to squat down and look at the bottom shelf without feeling like my ass was going to knock over bottles on the shelf behind me. And I'm only slightly fat! The layout was a bit confusing and it could have had a higher % of cold beer, but I'm picking nits here. Go, you'll be glad you did.
kinda glad I DON'T live nearby; dropped $200 without trying and it could have been $600.
