I was looking forward to visiting this place for some time now. After reading reviews, I figured it would compare with the other "big boy" places I have visited in the past. Yep...I was pretty much right on the money!

I stopped in early on a weekday, so I was one of the only people in the place...had lots of time to quietly browse the shelves and coolers. Speaking of which...there are a ton of places they stash beer here. Coolers along the back wall, halfway down the left side wall and a tangle of shelves in the left-center of the store. The right side of the store seemed to be dedicated to home brewing supplies (sorry, I know nothing about that stuff)...

There is also a walk in cooler that hid some beers that were not in the outside coolers or on the shelves.

You will need at least an hour to shuffle through this place...especially if you are not familiar with MI beers.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. This is a must stop for any beer person traveling through the Grand Rapids area. Warning...have lots of free time and bring lots of money! (1,067 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)
