4/5  rDev +7%

Very nice local store with good mix of local, domestic and imported craft beers. Very good assortment of Bells, Belgians and others. Lots of the craft beers are warm and cold. Most of the beers there lately have been much more expensive than other stores in the area.

Make sure you ask for Mike. He's the owner and if there's something you want, he'll do his best to get it for you. We asked him to start carrying some Jolly Pumpkins and within a week he had 750s and 6 packs.

They're also have a good selection of wines and liquors and will be expanding their cigar selection for all you cigar lovers.

Definitely worth checking out if you are in the area. Just expect to pay a few dollars more per bottle or six pack over other places.

Top Shelf is a new downriver place to buy good beer.

It is located in the old Rhodes party store on Allen Rd. Mike (the owner) has done a lot of renovating on this place and it is immaculate. He will take care of you when you arrive and he will also go above and beyond to order whatever you like.

This is a re-review. The prices have gone up way too high here and his selection is dwindling. The owner Mike is very nice but his prices are way too high now. Better off going to merchants or discount drinks.

Stopped in a couple months ago while I was downriver, and while they have some decent stuff to choose from, it is far from deserving of anything above a C+ rating. Small selection, typical selection, and typical prices.

All the usual Bell's, Founders, etc... were on hand, and a few imports, but nothing really stood out for me. They staff was nice, but didn't respond to my enthusiasm for beer, so I let them get back to the game they were watching on TV. I would probably stop back in here in a pinch, but Merchants Wine up in Dearborn is a short jaunt up M-10 to Michigan ave.
