Located just west of Northville Rd. on 7 mile, the Good Time Party Store is a nice one stop shop for some good suds. I know two guys that work there (Gary and Gary) and both are pretty educated on what's in stock and what's on it's way.When you walk in, the west side of the store encompasses most of the beers that you aren't likely interested in - Budweiser, Coors, Miller, Molson, Labatt, etc. etc. The cooler directly opposite that, in the wine area, is nearly totally dedicated to craft and micro brewed beer. All of the craft beers are kept refridgerated, which is a bonus, and they have a "mix six" deal where you can make you're own six pack for around 9 bucks. You'll find the standard belgians (Duvel), some German and Austrian beers, some English offerings. There's a lot of Michigan brews and regional Micros, which are reasonably priced and well stocked. There's always a nice selection of Bells, New Holland, and some other craft offerings. This place is no Merchant's or Cloverleaf, but when you need a sixer of good beer and don't have a lot of time, they're a worthy stop.

Having scouted this place as I'm up doing research, I figured I'd stop by, with mixed results. I grabbed a sixer of Bell's Expedition Stout, and it soaked me for over $18. I knew it was expensive, but jeeeez! Ouch.

Worse, there is a decent variety of good brews such as Hoegaarden, a couple wares from Unibroue, plenty of Bell's (it is Michigan, after all), some imports such as Weisenstephaner, Celebrator and others, a few sixer from Avery. But it's at least as heavily skewed toward the macros and 40s, and much better for finding a variety of wine. It would be unfair to say that it isn't a beer store. But it would be equally disingenuous to say that they have a great selection of very good micros. It's only a decent place to buy good beer.

Honestly, for beer in Northville, I'm not ashamed in the slightest to say that people would be better served going to Hiller's supermarket a half-mile away. The selection is far better, and the prices are more reasonable, seriously. Oh, and Hiller's has that other thing I like and find important. What is it called? Oh

I think the main thing to remember with most party stores is that they all aren't Bello Vino, Jungle Jim's or any of the well-stocked markets. But for it's size and selection it's pretty damn good. As a previous reviewer noted they allow you to pick a six for $7.99+ tax and deposit and from that I've gotten 4 or 5 great variety packs. Voove, Bell's Expedition-Cherry-Kalamazoo-Rye Stouts, Victory Prima Pils, Coal Porter and Bar Harbor Real Ale, Anchor Porter, Christmas-New Year, Breckenridge Vanilla Porter, Bert Grant's Porter, Rogue Mocha Porter, Jolly Pumpkin 12 oz and 1L 9 oz among many others that generally cost $9+ for a six that many simple party stores won't let you pick and choose from. Not the best but a good place to stop for some excellent brews and deals.
