Cork N Ale is by far the best bottle shop in Saginaw. The staff is just okay (The big bald guy was outstanding but he has since left). Now they have a couple of younger guys who dont know much about Craft Beer.
*Edit- Staff is very much improved. Not super outgoing , but if you take the time to ask they are very helpful.

The biggest need for improvement is their singles selection. It would be very benificial if they would offer a lot more singles and not up-charge for them. Take the cost of the 6er divide by 6 and charge that price. I was told they round up to make it easy on cashiers but it is VERY offputting for the "regular customers". Singles sell future 6 packs.
*Edit- Much bigger selection of singles, but they still up charge on most offerings.

They get good beer and do take suggestions if you are interested in a certain beer.

They need to hire a true Beer Advocate to run their beer department. They would not only be top notch for wine but beer also.
*Edit- This is still the case, they would be much better off with a true Beer Manager.

Young guy(20-30) that I talked to "seemed" well versed in craft beer and was helpful in finding my Dogfish Head selection, but not very talkative and had no suggestions about new products that fit what I was looking for. Overall, the store is good and has a very good selection for our area.
