It's not a place you can judge by it's looks. It's sign says "Beers, Boats, and Baits", and in summer and fall, it's very busy. I do salmon fish and have bought bait but never paid attention to the beer, expecting only a large selection of Bud and Corona. I was dead wrong. The prices are the lowest I have ever seen, even on impossible to find items. If you don't see it ask, they probably have it in the back or the basement. It's hard to leave without a box full, but that is the only problem with this store.

If you want selection, this is the best place I've found in Ludington. At the time of my visit, they notably had a half dozen varieties of each of Short's, Founder's, Bell's, and others. Three different beers from Brewery Vivant. A good supply of foreign beers, and a reasonably supply of US beers, but in particular they have quite a number of local beers.

They also carry a small but reasonably complete line of homebrewing supplies. (They also have some convenience store items, so you might find a few non-beer folks there.)

The owner arrived in the store after I'd been there a few minutes. He quickly came to ask about what I was looking for (anything) and began giving suggestions (everything). He seemed quite knowledgeable about his stock; impressive given the variety.

Prices are (for the most part) on par with other local stores for products that they have in common.

I visted on February 15, 2012.

This place offers a GREAT selection of foreign, domestic and craft beers from all over the United States and beyond. It has, by far, the best selection in the area. They boast over 400 brands. I believe it!

The sales staff are EXCELLENT. I was approached rapidly and friendly. My questions were answered knowledgeably. My statements of admiration for selection were truly appreciated. The sales person, before I left, wanted me to make sure I knew of a charity beer tasting fund raiser that was underway very close by.

I cant wait to get back!
