Based on my visit there on or about 10 17 09. Review from short notes but also from memory, a vivid one indeed.

Atmosphere Well it is floor to ceiling beer folks but I found the atmosphere to be divine. There is not a lot of open space but I found the atmosphere to be just great.

Quality Everything presented very well indeed, for the most part cases with a few open on the top near the front of the store and then shelves (many, many shelves) of bottles and then coolers in the back. Everything looked fresh too. 4.5

Service Very good. Staff reminded me of their bulk buying discount which they did not need to do. 4.5

Selection Well just great. I spent $97 in about 5 minutes if that gives you any idea. I picked up DFH 120 minute, Fort, Great Divide Yeti series of stouts to name a few. If my wife was not in attendance I easily could have spent 3 or 4 hundred dollars in this place. 5.0

Value Good I think but probably just reasonable.

Notes: Thanks BA community for rating, reviewing this place before me. It made me consider it in my trip and indeed go there. I am glad that I did! (1,094 characters)

Pluses are parking, selection, ability to break up 6 paks, cleanliness, friendliness.Offsetting this is the smallness of the place, that many beers were past shelf life really.Prices not the lowest. (198 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)
