I almost feel bad reviewing this since I had such high expectations for this store and the reviews all shower it in praise.

I walked in with my brother-in-law and was not greeted. Two women were behind the counter just standing…a guy was stocking the beer in the coolers and just kind of looked at us. We later asked him where the “beer cave” was since we were first timers and had no idea, and he seemed somewhat annoyed. Needless to say once I did ask one of the women behind the counter if they had any “special” fun beers they did try to help out.

The selection was solid for a store in Grand Rapids, but nothing special. I really didn’t find any beers I couldn’t in a Binny’s, minus a few Short’s they had (and which every store in this area of Michigan has). I asked if they had a few beers mentioned in prior reviews and they were out of everything it would appear. As stated, it’s not like the selection is bad; however, it does not deserve the praise everyone is giving. Understandably this is a good beer store for a smaller area like Grand Rapids, but again this doesn’t mean it should get 4.5 or 5 for selection. In addition there were dusty bottles and some old “hoppy” bottles.

I did like the fact you could buy singles of everything. That is a huge plus. I walked in expecting to drop a ton of money and walked out with a mixed six pack of Short’s. Prices were okay. (1,412 characters)

Somewhat limited Belgian selection. Plenty of Rochefort/Orval, but then some other mainline Trappists and typical mainstays are simply not there (ie Popperings Hommel). Very few special editions, no magnums, etc. Lambic/gueze selection is above average for the region. Domestic selection is strong. Staff is *very* hit or miss. Some great, but more often than not a frustrating experience. Overall good for the area, but is not first class and simply cannot compare to a good Binny's in Chicago or truly great family operations like State Line on the MD/DE border back east. Bottom line- ok in a pinch. (610 characters)

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. (493 characters)
