Dean has always been friendly and helpful. The selection is not huge but he gets the hard to get and has a nice rotation of variety. It's a cozy store with the occasional lingering aroma of a cigar that adds to the appeal. Easy to park in back and run in to get what I want, of course I always find something new that perks my interest and brings my back again. I have found beers hear that I could not anywhere else. I almost hate to tell anyone. There are other places I can go for better prices but not the convienience or help I get hear. Thanks, Dean. I also like the e-mail news letter with update on local tastings and specials.

Just visited this place today, on the recommendation of a friend. Upon arrival, the owner asked if I needed any help, and seemed quite willing to provide it. I told him I was just browsing and he let me be while I shopped, though he remained available to answer any questions I had. I noticed he was phoning customers that their various orders were ready, so it seems the service here is definitely good.

Store layout was obvious, with all the beers along one wall of coolers and shelves, wines in the middle, and spirits on the opposite wall. Nonetheless, it was a bit twisted.

The selection was pretty good. Lots of Michigan brews (particularly Dark Horse, New Holland, Founders, Bells, and Short's), and plenty of offerings from the likes of Stone, Rogue, Dogfish Head, Flying Dog, and Great Lakes. There was a decent mix of singles and four/six-packs. A brief once-over of the imported beer stock looked pretty promising as well, with lots of Germans, Belgians, and Brits, but I was after domestics today. Was able to pick up some brews that have eluded me during my college years in the Upper Peninsula, including a single of Old Rasputin (six-packs were also available), a few Short's singles, Crooked Tree Double IPA, and a couple of Stone bombers (IRS and AB).

Prices were a bit on the high side for my taste, with my total order of six singles and two bombers coming in just over $27, though I just recently moved back to the area, and I suspect I have been spoiled by alcohol prices in the UP.

When he carded me, he checked the name on my license and said, "Thanks, Tim". I appreciated the effort to acknowledge the names of customers who might become regulars.

Overall, I would certainly recommend this place to the experienced beer consumer who knows what they are after. Perhaps the owner knows his stuff too, but I didn't need advice, so I didn't have to ask for it.
