This a very beautiful decorated store and an excellent place to go if you are in search of a gourmet goodies, weather its for beer, wine, cheese, snacks or pastries. My mouth was watering when I walked in and had a gander at all the delicious looking goodies in the front of the store. Being from out of town we were looking for some specific beers we cant get in Dayton, none of which we found, but we were able to pick up a few interesting Michigan beers we cant get. Ill have to say I was immediately turned off by the place when I walked up to the register. The clerk (or perhaps he was the owner?) was a snobby older man who literally acted like he didnt even want us in his store. Whats up with people like that? Ill never understand, but if I lived nearby I dont think Id be returning to help his snobby arse profit.

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.
