Colasanti's Market located in Highland on Milford Rd. just south of M-59 is a unique country store. They carry top quality food products [deli, beef, fruit and vegetables], have a green house, sell wine and of course beer.

You'll notice the difference right when you pull into the parking lot. A peaceful pond filled with mute swans, and ducks - even a pen of peacocks and a small deer. They also have a sitting area to view the wildlife.

Colasanti's is known more for their wine than beer. However, their wine steward [Paul?] has been doing a good job upgrading their variety and presentation over the past months. A sampling of their offerings include Michigan Brewers from; Bells, Dragonmead, Dark Horse, Founders, Arbor, Arcadia, Michigan, Kings, etc. German offerings include Weihenstephaner, Hacker Pschorr, Paulaner, Warsteiner, and Spaten. Other US samplings include; Dog Fish, Victory, Stout's, Rouge, Flying Dog, Goose Island, Stone, Brooklyn, Sam Adams, Magic Hat, Tommy Knocker, Avery, etc. Belgian varieties include; Duvel, St. Bernardus, Trappistes Rochefort, Westmalle Trappist, Chimay, Leffe, Urthel, and more. Canadian brewer Unibroue is also represented.

Some of the harder to find ales such as Barleywines, [ Brooklyn Monster, Victory's Old Horizontal] , Old Ales [North Coast Old Stock Ale, Bells Third Coast] and Victory's Golden Monkey are not available, although I am told they are working on that.

One disappointing note, Colasanti's has dropped their 20% off all beer pricing, however their pricing is still competitive...just not as good as it once was.

Definitely worth a trip.

Nice little gourmet market. Excellent beer selection; good representation of Michigan beers. They seem to have a few beers you just don't see elsewhere (Unibroue Edition 2005), including a few vintage items.

Pricing is confusing as the beer prices seem a little high but all beer was 20% off when I was there. If that's the normal discount, they should just lower the pricing; who wants to do the math? Picked up a 22oz New Holland Dragon's Milk for $1 less (after the 20% off) than I've paid elsewhere (including at the brewery).

Food looked good too, check it out.
