Busch's has a couple locations, the one I've visited most is in Livonia.
It's a grocery store, but has a great beer section. The focus is mostly on Michigan beers (Founders, Bells, Shorts, OddSides, New Holland, Arbor Brewing. Also has a great selection of Belgian ales for some reason; I wonder if the owner is really into them.
The price for singles is decent, but the price for six-packs and bombers of the local stuff gives the local bottle shops a run for the money. Also has a "craft pop" section right next to the beer, so the kids can make a mix-six of sodas and root beers.

I have been coming going to this place for quite some time. It is more of a grocery store than a beer store. But one of those fancy grocery stores if you get what I mean. I have never had to ask anyone about any of the beers, but the workers at the checkout have always been very polite and respectful. For selection, they have Stone (bombers and 6ers), Delerium, Chimay, plenty of Bell's, Jolly Pumpkin, Dark Horse, Samuel Smith, Goose Island, Great Lakes, New Holland, Arbor Brewing, Grizzly Peak, Dogfish Head, Lindemans, Anchor, Founders, Gulden Draak, Duvel... On top of that they have quite a bit of the Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, Guinness, etc. I know I am forgetting some of the micro stuff. The selection was decent, definitely not the best that I have seen, but for sure a place to go if you aren't looking for something special. Something tells me this isn’t the kind of place that is going to be getting Founders Breakfast Stout, but more of just the regular releases i.e. Red’s Rye. A perk is that everything is refrigerated and takes up one entire side of an isle. The macro stuff is near the back of the store and the more unique micro stuff is near the front with easy visibility. They seem to have quite the wine and cheese selection as well. Prices are about right for the area. There are better places in AA for beer for sure, but this place is great being in the same plaza and Blockbuster- movie and beer.
