Go here for gourmet, snack type food and sand wedges, wine and also for beer, but don't expect anything overwhelmingly interesting beer wise. Typical selection of the Mich. Brews, just a few national micros, F/E Stone, and just a few Belgians, Brit, german imports. Nearly all the beer can be found in the cooler unit to the left as you enter. Place seemed clean, guy behind the counter was friendly enough. Middle of the road Michigan "Party store" type of operation. You can find something worthy here, but don't expect any treats beer wise

Decent selection far south of downtown. Urbancaver brought me here on a hunt for a recent Shorts release, and they had some left (possibly due to high prices). About $1-2 more expensive per 6-pack than other places, at least for the things I saw. Good beers, more things I saw were in coolers, no real negative comment except price.

Beer takes up maybe 20% of the stock, just a guess, and it all seemed well cared for. The selection is nowhere near that of Tiffany's, so if you have only one place to go I definitely recommend that one.

I used to live right off of woods lake when attending WMU and this was a regular stop in walking distance.
Quality is rather good and aims to please. This specialty store has more items than you can think from cheese, liquors, wines, coffee, and beers. I always found the staff nice and able to feild questions.
However, the selection is not that fantastic for beers. They seem to specialize in liquor and wines with beer taking the back seat. Maybe I am partial to this place because I could get a decent sixer, or a few singles, and some great flipping coffee. In any event it is a nice place to get some beer, not great, but nice! Prices can poke at the wallet for the selection they have...

I swung by here with bmoney575 on our way to Bell's. The beers were mostly in coolers with some on shelves as well. I have to say, the selection was nothing to write home about. They had the standards: Bell's, Stone, Founders, Dogfish Head... nothing surprised me in the slightest. Also, the prices were definitely on the high end. I was never asked if I needed any help or anything, but I guess I really didn't need any. With Tiffany's in the same town, there really isn't a lot driving me to go here again.

As one of only two (I know, I'm spoiled) good beer stores in K-zoo, I had to try it out. The place is easy to find, and the selection is good, lots of imports, and quite a few American breweries. Not alot of really obscure stuff, but alot of beers that are good to keep around. Lots of Bell's, Sam Adams, Breckenridge, Victory, and lots of German staples. The service was quite good, the staff was knowledgeable and eager to help. Prices seemed to be very competitive, I picked up a 2005 Samichlaus for 6 bucks, which I though was a steal. Overall a good place to pick up a few, and I'm sure I'll be back in the future.

Decent sized location, with small but sufficient parking lot. More a good deli than a good beer and wine selection. Beers are the usual selection of mass brands along with some regional micros and few micros from more far flung places. Prices are probably slightly above average.
Wine selection is fairly limited but what they have is pretty good, has nice section of local Michigan wines.
Deli and cheese section si where they set themsleves apart. Numeorus specality cheeses available at not outrageous prices, all kinds of olive oils and other cooking ingredients available.
If you pass by stop for the cheese selection but do not make special trip for the beer and wine selection.
