4.11/5  rDev -11.4%

We rolled in here just as they were closing, and they stayed open for us long enough to grab a few local beers to take home. The guy working even answered our beer questions, and was very helpful.

Singles galore, many from almost every Michigan brewery that bottles. Founders, Jolly Pumpkin, Arcadia, Arbor, Dark Horse, et cetera. They had a long aisle of imports, although I stuck mostly to the coolers full of singles. A few single Arbor and Dragonmead bottles from here were later discovered to be old, so points off for quality.

There was a good selection of homebrewing supplies and pipe tobacco as well. I'd stop here again if I was passing through Grand Rapids.

A highlight of my recent visit to the GR, Kalamazoo, Battle Creek , MI area. This place is nirvana for BAs. Tons of singles, bombers, sixes available to mix and match, warm or cold. All the locals, national micros, plenty of Imports. Well stocked, staffed and organized. The also have all your home brewing needs. The folks who work there were friendly, informative and enthusiastic. Just a great place to find all the Michigan brewers goodies you have been looking for. Located about 10 minutes from other great GR spots like Hop Cat and Founders.

I stopped in the morning of the Founder's KBS release hoping to find some Short's and other Michigan beers I can't get in Ohio.

Siciliano's has about everything you can get in Michigan. An incredibly extensive beers that you can pick apart and build your own four or six pack. I wound up building two four packs of some beers from local breweries I didn't want to buy entire six packs (Dark Horse, Mt. Pleasant, etc.).

I was later told that they had a couple of cases of KBS for sale with a limit of two 4 packs per person.

The only downside to this place is it's pretty tight quarters and if other people are beer shopping you'll be working around them.

5/5  rDev +7.8%

This place doesn't look special due to it's size but don't let it fool you. Place is packed inside, allows singles of most if not all of its beers, and the service was great as well. The people there were well versed in the releases and breweries and very helpful. There was many beers I couldn't find in other places as well including some high end beers. This is the best store I have had the pleasure of walking into in the state of Michigan and the scores need to show accordingly. The cost was ok, maybe a little higher but I bought quite a bit and in general Michigan is a little more costly for beer than Wisconsin (not to mention I lose the bottle deposit every time). I would definitely go back again, Perfect Score!

One of the many reason to visit Grand Rapids. A great bottle selection in a clean and well organized store. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and pointed out some stuff that had recently come in. The 10% discount on purchases over a case was a nice surprise too.

Picked up some great local stuff form Founders, Bells and New Holland as well as a few Epic bottles that apparently were new to Michigan.

My only complaint was that their Short's selection was very limited. Aside from that, this place was great and I will definitely return on my next trip to Grand Rapids.

Ventured out to this place during the week before my wedding. My family resides on the south side of town, so I can normally just go between B&B, International Bev, D. Schulers and Reuze's. This place definetely keeps pace with all of those. Woody interior is inviting, smelling of a humidor. Definetely an older building. Lots of good stuff spread around, albeit a bit of a cramped arrangement. Lots of good Michigan micros and a solid selection of foreign stuff. Dark Horse was the one local that seemed to be missing. But they had more Arcadia and Jolly Pumpkin than some. Service was good, not intrusive. I tend not to need much help or knowledge from the staff. If you're on the north side of GR, go no further.

A quiet small place that at first glance looks like a small Italian delicacy shop or liquor store. One enters, however, and sees a shop chock full of organized beers with a selection that is among the best in the region...period.

Katie (I think that's her name) is young and on first glance you think you're about to speak with perhaps an ill informed college girl. WRONG! This lady is the buyer and has probably forgotten more about beer than I know. Excellent knowledge, great discussion and advice and she could not be more friendly or helpful.

The selection of beer is fantastic and you can break six packs and take what you want, something very appealing for tasting when you don't want to buy a full six pack.

This is a must go if you're any where in the area.

Siciliano's Market is the go to liquor store in Grand Rapids.

Everything by the single bottle. Tons of cooler space with chilled singles. A huge selection of imports, German, Belgian, whatever you are looking for. A growing selection of Michigan Meads. Awesome, vast selection of homebrewing grains and a good stop for information on home brewing, including a knowledgeable staff, and a big selection of books to feed your head.

It's a great stop. Do it!

We stopped in here on the way to Founders during a recent run through Grand Rapids. This is quite the interesting little liquor store as they also sell coffee, tea, and tobacco as acting as a homebrew shop. But at least for me, it's all about the beer here. There is a HEAVY emphasis here on local Michigan beers, of which they had a huge selection. Founders, Bell's, Arcadia, New Holland, Arbor, Dragonmead, etc, the list goes on. Of course, they also had a really nice selection of other craft beers and other imports and I liked that they offered a good majority of their beers in both the coolers or out on the floor. The real boon here though is that almost everything in six packs is individually priced for sale. This was great, as with so many great new Michigan beers to try, I was able to conveniently cobble together a few six-packs to take home. Service here was decent and the prices seemed reasonable for the most part. This was our last beer shopping stop on our recent trip through Michigan and this was a great stop to help fill in those final few missing Michigan beers (and the last few empty spaces in the car).

Somewhat of a hole in the wall location they carry cigars, beer, homebrew supplies and more. Everything was neatly displayed and clean. Dusty botles is really a pet peeve of mine. The girls working there were busy wiping down the racks in the coolers and the display shelves as well.

Service was excellent. They even have a wireless internet for you to use to check out any beers on BA. Not a problem to use the restroom having just come from Founders!

Great selection. While the specific Founders or Bells products I was after were out of season there is plenty else to be had. Loads of MI beers as well as an admirable selection of Belgians. Really top notch for the area. Prices all seemed quite reasonable. I got 10% off for spending a certain amount but with the bottle deposit it was more like 5%. Still a help cost wise. Check it out when youre in the area-well worth it.
