3.41/5  rDev -25.9%
vibe: 3 | quality: 3 | service: 4 | selection: 3.5

Atmosphere: The shelves are pretty close together, combine that with a few customers and there can be bit of claustrophobia in this store. The place can be a little...dirty would be the best word I can think of. The floors, shelves, and counters are just a little older, no big deal.

Quality: Siciliano's has a fair amount of cooler space, and then quite a bit of shelf space. The shelves are towards the back of the store out of sunlight, and the lights are pretty dim. A couple different walk in coolers to check out. Everything in the store is mix and match. I have seen some very old IPA's here though.

Service: Always greeted with a hello as soon I walk in the door. After wandering for several minutes I am always asked if I have any questions. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful.

Selection: For the Grand Rapids area, Sciliano's has an okay selection. Lots of locals and some harder to find stuff. That being said, I have never seen anything there that was super hard to find anywhere else, and they don't bring in a lot of new brews. I know there are some locals I can count on them to have, but most of the time their selection doesn't really appeal to me. (1,177 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)
