Third review. A massively increased product line and continued excellent service have separated Siciliano's from the local "pack" in recent months. All that can seemingly stop them is a lack of space!

Siciliano's continues to separate themselves from the rest of the Grand Rapids pack in terms of beer selection and brand coverage. The additions of several new beers in the past year (Victory, Dogfish Head, Breckenridge, Great Divide, etc., etc.) has necessitated additional shelf space. So far, the store has managed to fit these additions into its small beer-designated space. However, many beers, particularly Michigan microbrews, are sold as quickly as they're put on the shelves due to the store's increasing popularity and space limitations leading to small orders and stock of many limited-batch beers. Lots of slower-moving German and British beers are available, and the Belgian selection, albeit still small, has improved, and is probably limited mostly by what the local distributors carry.

Siciliano's is #1 in Grand Rapids. Visit the other stores if you're looking for small batch beers that move quickly here but more slowly elsewhere.

PREVIOUS REVIEW:
Probably still the best beer store in Grand Rapids, especially considering the availability of all beers as singles. Fairly extensive selection of Michigan micros, including most Bells (though the seasonals have as of late been hard to find there), Founders, Arcadia, and New Holland as well as a handful of Dark Horse and Michigan Brewing Company. Used to carry a fair amount of Kraftbrau but I haven't seen any in months. Has a nice selection of other domestic micros including Rogue, Dogfish Head, Great Lakes, Goose Island, and the recently arrived Southern Tier. Decent import selection of German and British beers; weaker Belgian selection although there is some improvement as of late. They also carry cigars, wine, and homebrew supplies.

It's worth visiting this store frequently, as shelf space constraints confine them to ordering very small stocks that disappear quickly.

Doesn't get much better than this place!!! HUGE selection and you are allowed to buy everything in singles. Most places have an "upcharge" when they break up a sixer and sell it by singles, but NOT this place ... single bottle price is the SAME as a 6-pack. Tons of great brews - Shorts, Founders, Bells, Dark Horse ... plus many other smaller Michigan breweries. Owners/workers were super cool - very friendly - very helpful ... I consider this a MUST VISIT if you are ever near Grand Rapids.

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.
