Sicilianos is by far the best "beer" store I've ever frequented.
The selection is immense and will please beer, cigar, coffee, tea, and homebrew aficionados.
As for beer, they have a reliable selection from anywhere in the globe. The store is essentially divided into sections by regions. For instance, all belgians/international beers have their own shelf. There is also sections for Michigan and domestic beers.
Outside of beer, the store has quite a bit of spirits and liquors. There is also a section dedicated to exotic teas and coffee. Sicilianos also reps a full assortment of homebrew equipment/ingredients, home-fermented wine section, and another section I like to call DIY. This is stuff like make your own almond milk or grow your own mushrooms or cheese.
As for beer, it's easily best in Grand Rapids and West Michigan. Sicilianos consistently stocks rare and mainstay beers and their availability is second to none. The staff is incredibly knowledgable in making the right recommendations to seasoned beer drinkers or beginners. One thing that separates this from average liquor stores, Sicilianos marks all their beer in singles. While you can buy four/six packs, it's more targeted toward maker your six pack.
Protip for Sicilianos: First, they stock new beers on Thursday afternoon and run a blog on Friday called "New Beer Friday." Your best chance for finding whales and rarities is on Thursday afternoon.

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.
