I must say I was surprised by this place when I stopped last summer. They actually had quiet a bit of Bells Batch 9000 left so I bought two sixers. The line up was decent for a liquor store, which is great considering it is in a convenience store. This is probably not a destination like some places are, but if one is in the area this place holds up pretty well in comparison to its surroundings, having moderate selection of craft brews that for the most part are standard issue... with the exception of some Bells Batch 9000.

My wife and I have been going to Thirsty's for several years now. It's close and convenient for us. The staff are wonderful. There is a good selection of craft beers, and mixed sixes are allowed. The wine selection is good, and the owner makes sure there is a wide variety of liquors, from the lower priced to high dollar.
I've bought many a craft beer there, and the owner has been extremely helpful in suggesting beers to try.

I have now stopped in here a few times since I discovered it. The place is actually pretty decent for the area. They carry a lot of Michigan regional's including Short's, Bell's, New Holland, Founder's, Michigan Brewing, Dark Horse, Arcadia, and Mt. Pleasant Brewing. National selections include Stone, Rogue, Great Lakes, Great Divide and others. This is a gas station, so the service isn't terrific, however, the guy who does the ordering seems to know his stuff and talked to me for a few minutes about the beers. Their quality seems pretty good, most things appeared fresh, although some of the bottles had a bit of dust on it. Prices are also on par for this area, not expensive yet not incredibly cheap either. Overall, I would recommend as a place to stop if you are in the area.
