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!

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.
