I was down in K-Zoo today and decided to stop by this store on my way home. The beer is in the back and doesn't seem to be the top priority here but the selection is simply awesome! Lots of Belgians that I have yet to see in GR (abbaye des rocs, la trappe, etc) The English selection and German selection were both good in their own right. Michigan micro selection was alright and the US micro selection was pretty bad.

The prices were very up and down. That should be fine for anybody who knows anything about beer prices and what they should be entering this store. I found some 22 oz Rogues for $2.99 and a 4 pack of Maredsous 8 for $7. On the whole I would say the prices were very good.

I got some help from a younger guy who seemed enthustiastic but not the most knowledgeable about the Belgians, which were the ones I had questions about. Seriously, there were a lot of Belgians that I had no idea about! The guy working the front had some Bell's stuff on but didn't seem interested in the beer I was buying and offered no help. Oh well, maybe he didn't know much.

The turnover might be spotty here as I saw a decent amount of bottles with dust. But all in all this place is a must stop if you are in the K-zoo area.

Another wide selection of your tipple of choice, with plenty of wine and liquor options. But we’re here for craft and they deliver on that end as well. Prices are on par or slightly higher. Can be long lines during busy times.

As a regular here, I love Tiffany's! Not only for the beer, but also for the deli. "Cheese ends" are small and cheap for sampling. If it distributes in Michigan, they can get it if they don't have it. Long time happy customer.

Buyer beware, they try to sell both kegs and beer bottles WAY past "Best By" date and then try to say that the beer is fine even though it is too low of an ABV to be cellar'd. The staff is nice, but the owners are kinda jerks. They aren't always the most expensive, but 9 times out of 10 they are. Plus, they were offering a 4-pk pre-sale of KBS on facebook, but when they realized they would be out too quickly, they back pedaled and say limit 1. Plus, charged doubt what Founders recommended for MSRP.

Visited this place at the recommendation of a Bell's bartender on a recent roadtrip.

Tiffany's is actually a large liquor store/deli type place. Its pretty spacious but the entire area is made use of. Shelves are a bit cramped and hard to peruse but that could be a good thing. Otherwise pretty friendly and really, your run-of-the-mill liquor store.

Quality is pretty good. They have almost all of their 6-ers at room temperature and in the fridge. As well as refridgerated IPAs. Beers kept on the shelves are all to date too. These guys obviously know what they're doing.

Service overall is pretty good. I was helped and given a little tour of the place and they made a couple of nice recommendations. The service people were nice as were the cashiers who made light conversation.

Selection is really good. Rivals some of the best beers stores in NYC and I was impressed to see that almost everything they had in 6-ers were also available as singles in a pick-6 type of deal. That's always appreciated. A very solid selection of locals, imports, and other offerings around the US.

Tiffany is a bit expensive. Bottles in both 6ers and bombers and 750s were more expensive than in NYC... considering that pints around the locals bars were much cheaper than what I'm used to paying, I'm inclined to think this place is overcharging a bit.

Worth a visit to get a comprehensive idea of what is distributed to MI. And about a 5 minute drive from Bell's so its a nice, convenient pit stop for the craft beer enthusiast.

Another quick stop after eating and drinking at the Eccentric cafe..This was my second time, and again, I walked out with a case of beer! I even found KBS here!! There were was plenty of singles and sixers around.. A good selection of imports, locals and other micros... The trick was, I could tell some bottles were pushing code or at least a little out of season as there were some fall selections still around... Eitherway, I still found plenty to walk out with... There was a younger beer guy in back who was pretty nice and helpful and the girl up front was as well.. I'd go back for a third stop sometime..

Selection is awesome. Beer is not always stored in appropriate conditions. Some old stuff on the shelves( Xmas beers from 2009, summer beers from last year, etc.). Prices are higher than Drake Party Center. Hoard limited releases and gouge you (ex: Founders KBS, limit 1 bottle and charging $9, Founders Nemesis $40/4pk). Great Single malt selection, but not at state minimum so expect to pay $20-25$ more per bottle. Can find same stuff in Grand Rapids and Ann Arbor for much less. Decent cigar selection, but again Arturo Fuente Work of Art Natural for $12...please...Red Arrow is a few minutes away!

Great selection of beers from across the country and around the globe, especially for make your own 6-packs, usually even have 120 min IPA in stock. Also an extensive selection of cold beer, including almost all west Michigan area brewers and most of the big Michigan companies Better though is the wine and liquor selection which is the best that I have found in the entire area. Prices for beer are slightly high, as would be expected. For liquor the prices are not minimum but still very reasonable. I do not purchase enough wine to judge the prices, however the selection, as noted before, is superb. Never have needed help there but from my experience with purchasing the service seems pretty good.
