3.8/5 rDev -2.6%
While the wife napped away at a fancy bed-and-breakfast hotel, I decided to drive a mile or so over to Martha's Vineyard.
This place (and the 'hood) reminds me of Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon. A cool gourmet market with cheese, charcuterie, wine, spirits and the works, plus a large selection of craft beer, mostly cooled. They have ciders, BMC, the singles (a lot of them), Belgians, Germans, bombers, six-packs... you name it.
Clown Shoes, Evil Twin, Stillwater, Goose Island, Dogfish, Southern Tier, Rogue... and a lot of Michigan beer. Seriously a lot. Local pride here.
I didn't see anything outrageous or unique, but there certainly is a ton of good beer here. Service is pretty nice, I was asked if I needed help more than once. Prices are a lil' high overall (the spirits, cheese and prepared foods struck me as pretty pricey indeed) but I guess you're paying for the convenience of having it all under one roof.

This is a gem if you want to spend just a bit more than normal. They have a great selection in the GR area. They seem to always have a few beers that have sold out like Hopslam, even out of date a bit, they still offer it. I bought a bomber of Old Guardian 09' for $3 on close out that made me smile like a MF'r. I also bought a 10' at the same price and enjoyed them.
I will always stop by when in town.
