The store definitely has a party store feel to it. Some of the beers are refrigerated, but most of it was on shelves in the middle of the store. Some of the beer was dusty too, so I would definitely keep up with your dates and batch numbers and what not if you are going to be shopping here. The selection was alright, nothing all that impressive. Lots of Michigan beers- Bell's, Founders, Dark Horse etc. Also some Dogfish Head, Unibroue, Victory, small amounts of Rogue and Stone, etc. The prices were kind of odd. The normal Bell's sixers were $9.99, pretty high if you ask me. But the other stuff seemed to be alright, but they were definitely not making any deals. All in all, an alright stop, and maybe the best selection in Fenton, but don't go out of your way. Go to Oliver T's instead- it's only 20 minutes away.

A good selection of craft beer but more of a wine store than anything else. Only about 2-3 coolers but a good amount of stuff on the shelves. Very good selection of Shorts, Bell's and Founders. Decent amount of Stone, DFH, Dark Horse, New Holland. No Jolly Pumpkin. The highlight was finding some 2009 Stone IRS on the shelf. They do have a small amount of Belgians/imports but nothing special.

Service is decent. Prices were a little high. Not the best place to go in the area but if you had to stop there, its not a disapointment.

This shop is more dedicated to their wine then their beer. The beer selection was average, but not a whole lot of singles to pick through. It consisted mostly of six packs, some twenty two ounces, mostly Samuel Smith and Stone, nothing out of the norm. The only problem was it looked like a dust bomb was dropped off. I suggest if you buy from here check the dates on your bottle. It also had a few choices of glassware to choose from, but nothing that caught my eye. Better than your normal party store but not on my list that I'll be returning to.

Merchants is a pretty convenient store in Fenton, Mi. They have a very large selection of liquor and wine. There selection of beer is nice too. They have variety packs and lots of Michigan brews. The people there are very nice too. I know not selling to minors is a big deal but their employees are friendly and like to talk about beer instead of drawing all their attention to if you are under 21 or not. They also sell sandwiches with Boars Head meat so the quality is up there. This is great place to stop by and pick up a 6er of some good brew. Not the best by far but it gets the job done for the area it is in.
