I no longer live in GR, but fortunately my parents still do so I can continue to shop at Sicilaino's Market.

They have an excellent selection of regional micros, European imports, and (most importantly for me) a great selection of non-regional domestic micros like Rogue. They also allow you to mix and match just about anything into a sixpack.

Service is topnotch. Whether you have a question about homebrewing, need a recomendation for a good wee heavy purchase, or just want to chat about beer, these guys are there for you.

In addition to all of the above, they also offer a great variety of homebrew products and have a large walk-in fridge in the back for ingredients/yeast.

It's a hole in the wall, but it's one I'd gladly crawl into anytime.

Best beer store in Western Michigan that I've found. All Michigan beers represented well and the individual prices really are about equivalent to a 6-pack price in most stores. Nice warm selection on the floor but also lots of coolers with many great different selections. Only weakness that I see is that the Belgian selection is a little bit weaker than I would like to see but you can't have everything. Dropped $50 and for 24 beers and got at least 14 different beers, nice to be able to try a single or double before investing $8-10 in a 6-pack.

Fantastic local store which wins major points based on it's 'everything available as singles' policy.

Carry a wide variety of locals (complete lines in most cases with stand-bys like Bell's, Founders, Unibroue and Great Lakes being joined by rarer options such as the Kraftbrau offerings) as well as many imports, and many non-local micros (ala Rogue, Dogfish) as well as many hard to find limited edition offerings. My only complaint is that vis a vis B&B or Tiffany's down in Kazoo they offer very few Belgians, generally a shelf in their warm area, and one smallish cooler up near the front.

Staff knows their stuff and is happy to help you out, and the deserved reputation and customer base ensure the product is always rotating.

Great store, one of the best.

I had to ace this store for I sought it out off the reviews and recommends of BA. The service was great, even before I arrived I e-mailed them for there week-end hours since my visit to Grand Rapids would be brief. I went in search of Michigan micro's (Bell's, Founders ext.) and found full stock of many offerings and styles. They carry regional micro's such as Goose Island and Great Lakes. A treat for me was I found the hard, for me, to find G.L. like the Christmas and Anniversary ales. Also Belgiums and bombers from Rogue and many others. Parking is one row plaza style out front. A store well worth the visit and one i'll return to as I can.

Great store for a micro lover or homebrewer. The service is excellent and the staff really know their stuff. This store also has a great wine, cigar, and liquor selection. They have homebrewing books as well. Probably the best homebrew shop in Michigan. The only suggestion is finding more new beers every once in awhile b/c I have tried basically every beer they have. Maybe get rid of all the euro pils shit that never seems to move and make room for some more American micros or Belgians, but that's just my preference.
