I was told that this is the one must stop bottle shop in Kalamazoo...and yes, this is a great place to check out!
Kind of a Swiss army store...they seem to have a little bit of everything (beer, wine, hard alcohol, food). The beer can be found along the right side...a few industrial baker shelves make up aisles that house lots of imports, locals and domestic craft bottles. The import selection is quite impressive.
They have coolers along the wall (and a few more in the rear room) that have cold singles and six packs. There was also some center island type displays of beer scattered throughout the back room.
A few of the employees stopped to ask if I needed help...without being overbearing or pushy. Prices are clearly marked and easy to see.
If you are in town to visit Bells, you have to stop by here. Well worth a visit.

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..
