Not a bad store. Been there a few times and bought some Belgians and German Imports. It's in a good location, so if you're anywhere in the Metro Detroit Area or as far east as Ypsi or Ann Arbor, it's not too far of a drive. A decent selection of Michigan brews were present, as were some good selections of Belgians and German beers. Most were not in the cooler, as that space was reserved for macros and a few dare I say "craft-micros". There were some brews that were respectable had dust on them, leading me to think that perhaps most of the beer they sell is BMC stuff, yet the couple I got were decent enough, but I'd be it's like a minefield in there (Likely spoiled beers throughout the selection). I wasn't lucky enough to experience service, as the guy behind the counter was on the phone, but this was a moot point, as I wasn't in need of any assistance. This is not a bad store, I will likely check them out again, but they don't have the appeal of Merchants or the Single Selection space like Cloverleaf. On occassion you can find some hard to find Founders on hand when no one else has any (I got 2 - 4 packs of Breakfast stout for 10.00 each) Worthy of a stop if you're around the area. But if you're gonna go this far for beer, be sure to check out others in the area for a better selection.

If they don't have what you need they will get it in stock. The owners are a great help. Try the pizza it's good stuff. They have a pretty nice walk in humidor, with an excellent selection of fine cigars. Prices are average, however the selection is great.

This place is always one of my go to places. They usually have what I'm looking for.
The selection very large, they even have some hidden treasures there I can't find other places. I am lucky to live a relative close distance. Can't ask for more....

I have known these guys since I was a kid. Cliff and Kelly are good guys. The store is very and clean and well organized. They have a huge selection of craft, domestic and import. They do a nice job of getting in bottles that I don't find other places. They do a nice job of spreading the wealth on limited releases. Their prices on shelf beer are very fair. They are usually a couple bucks higher on the limited stuff. Cliff and Kelly are always knowledgeable and friendly.

this is one place were the owner ( Cliff) will taker of you . They have a great selection not only in beer ,but in liquor too. I highly recommend this place. The prices are on target to all the other beer place around .

To get the hard to find or seasonal beers you don't have to be on a list like other places. I believe it's first come first serve , so may help to check in often to get the hard to find beers (like Backwoods Bastard ) . i also like the fact they have alot of single beers , that way you don't have to buy a six pck to find out if you like a certain beer or not .

Wine Palace is a little out of my way, but it was one of the few local places that still had Founder's Backwoods Bastard on hand. They had it on hand because they ration it out - 1 bottle per person. The price was a little steeper than I would have liked at $4.99, but supply and demand! (Another store was charging $7.99 for a single, so compared to that, Wine Palace is way more reasonable!)

Now for my impressions of the store. The isles are roomy enough for a couple people to browse comfortably, and the selection is pretty good. I'm particular to Belgian ales, and craft beers, and Wine Palace had a good selection of each. I noticed that they also had a cigar room, and a good selection of liquor (I might be hitting them up for some Scotch in the not-too-distant future!)

Cliff was the man who took care of me today, and he was extremely helpful. I'm grateful that they're limiting the Backwoods Bastard. If this wasn't happening, I wouldn't be fortunate enough to have one to cellar this year!

The Wine Palace is an exceptional Liquor/Craft Beer store! I have been shopping here for a few years now and every time I enter the doors I leave with a new gem wether it be a new craft brew, a great bottle of bourbon, lunch or even some Guernsey's Ice Cream(amazing stuff by the way).

The staff are very knowledgable and more than willing to lend a helping hand to help you find exactly what you are looking for-even if you started with no idea what it was in the first place.

Great craft beer, jumbo cocktail shrimp, ice cream and an exceptional liquor selection, what more could one ask for? I wouldn't know where to shop if i lost my precious Wine Palace! Keep up the great work Fellas!
