This is definitely the best store in the area. Unfortunately always out of my way during the week, so I don't visit as often as I'd like. They always seem to get all of the highly allocated imports and locals on a regular basis, and the overall selection is insane. Jack always has great recommendations on beers I may have missed while browsing, and I usually end up grabbing a bottle. Every time I go in there I can easily fill a full case box with beers I've never seen or had before(with even more to spare). After 5000+ reviews, it's been getting difficult at this point. I've found beers and even breweries I have never seen in the area too. As far as quality; there is always nice rotation going on, and I can always expect fresh beers for all easily available locals and domestic craft in the coolers. This is pretty much a hidden gem for the area, as it looks like any other standard party store from the outside; but holds an insane beer selection within it's doors.

Every time you walk into the door Jack is going to greet you with a hello whether he knows you or not. I've seen him make folks trying to check out wait, just to help a customer find something, or recommend something.

Obviously that means his place can be a bit understaffed for the quantity of people that shop here. Under the circumstances, the service is top notch.

Less busy times are great, as you won't be surprised to see some beer sharing happening.

My biggest complaint about this place, is every single reasonably rare release is kept behind the shelf, and you will never know it's there. I'd much rather see everything go on the shelf, with a limit.

Secondly, there is as very limited single selection and a ton of old stuff on the shelf. This problem plagues every good beer store, so it's hard to knock off too much because of it.

Overall: One of the best, if not the best store, in northern metro Detroit.

This is a great place, with a good selection and great service. The manager is knowledgeable of beer and will recommend to customers upon request. The problem has been is the city has been very slow in road repairs to the point he appears out of business. If you do not know there is a path from the road into the parking lot you will drive past as I have done already a few times. The city really needs to make a concerted effort to clear the damn road so the owner does not go out of business.

Best customer service in town! Great selection, reasonably priced, if they don't have something, they will try to get it! Walk in beer cave, cigars, smokes, tons of mixers and assorted snacks. Usually has a tasting of something on Friday evenings. They know when all the local breweries are having festivals - they usually attend themselves, and are on top of all the latest craft beers. Best business in town... :)

Overall a very nice liquor/beer/wine store with nice people whom are extremely knowledgeable and up to date and current with new items, trends, beers, events, etc. Jack and Gus will definitely work closely with the customer to go above and beyond to accomplish the customers needs. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for craft beers.
