Stumbled on Siciliano's by accident, but had read Beerfly enough to know a stop was necessary.
Very nice selection of both foreign and U.S. micro stuff, with an expected and appreciated emphasis on west and north Michigan breweries. Due to the small size of the shop, the amount they are able to stock of any beer at any particular time is a bit limited. I didn't hit them until about 11:00 p.m. on a Friday night, so some areas were well picked over.
Staff was extremely helpful, and more than willing to check for stock in the back. Staff also made enquiries as to palate preferences, and pointed out interesting things that I likely would have missed due to the somewhat jumbled nature of the store. Staff also pointed out 10% mixed case discount when I went to the counter with a bit less than 24 bottles. Very cool, and much appreciated.
Everything seemed to be available as singles for those who like to try lots of different things. Some dust apparent, but beers tasted so far have all been in fine shape.
There is a nice homebrew supply section which I did not check out in detail as I was travelling. I will definitely be making the drive next time I'm in town. The best beer store I've found in Grand Rapids for sure.

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.
