The manager at Wise Guys in Merrilville IN gave me directions to the two shops here in town and I spent the rest of my day off driving to MI to get some beers...

This is the smaller of the 2 stores in town, and the older, more cluttered shop as well. The coolers did hold some Founders Imperial Stout 4 packs which had me pretty happy. Lots of MI breweries that I was looking for, and the prices were pretty reasonable.
I was really impressed by the selection of wines from the local vineyards, and I did grab a few bottles for the wife.
I couldn't find any limited release beers available, but the shelves and coolers had lots of beer that sells out pretty quickly in Chicagoland. Prices were great compared to IL pricetags.

The older gentleman working the register was very friendly and interesting to chat with. He made some recommendations regarding wine bottles, vineyards, brewpubs, and apple orchards.

All in all, I was quite pleased to stumble upon this little store, and I took a few of the free magazines and tourist brochures on my way out the door... I'm still planning a roadtrip to some of the locations I read about!

I was in the Benton Harbor area and wanted to find a shop that had some microbrews I could take home. I stumbled upon this place and was pleased. They have a cooler in the back that is about 8 doors or so, with mostly microbrews, a few macros, and a few imported beers. This cooler has 6 packs/12packs. In the back right is another cooler w/ 4 doors that has 22oz bottles, 4packs and other various sizes. A pretty good selection of different micros and some Belgian beers.

A good selection of Michigan beers like Arcadia, Founders, Bells, Great Lakes, Round Barn, etc. In addition there were beers from Avery, Rogue, Stone, DFH, Left Hand, Laguinitas, and a bunch more.

The price was reasonable for bombers, and micro 6packs. I got a bomber of Arcadia Hopmouth for 5.99 and a bomber of Avery Maharaja for 7.99. Most of the micro 6packs were 10. The macros seemed to be priced a little higher than other places I had seen.

The staff was knowledgable, and were able to answer my questions.
