Another great place to pick up beer in suburban Grand Rapids on the Southwest side.

The store is set up really nicely. Beers are mostly sorted as crafts, imports, and BMC. Beers are sold as singles, bombers,sixers, or bigger, on the shelf or in a large cooler. Another bonus, they're right next to a good pizza place. Easy to pick up a tasty pie and some great brew.

Lots of quality beer. Plenty of "hard to finds" to go with regular releases from local and regional brewers. More than enough wine to keep my wife happy too.

Service is outstanding. I've always been welcomed to the store, asked if I'd like any help, and made aware of any new/special releases. The biggest thing that impresses me is the fact that the owners actually take requests/suggestions. I don't know how many places I've gone where I've requested a beer, given my contact information, and not even received a call (much less get the beer stocked). At the Copper Vine I've made a request for beer or wine and come back to find it stocked after the next delivery day. That service goes a long way in my book.

Selection is definitely good. Not as extensive as some of the top, more established, shops but they definitely have a great selection from Michigan, national, and import breweries and enough hidden gems to keep me checking in on a regular basis. Selection seems to be expanding since their recent opening.

Value is good, within a dollar either way of the other local shops.

Copper Vine is definitely becoming my "go-to" shop.

The Copper Vine is a decent shop. Michigan beer is represented well, along with quite a bit of other craft beer. Pretty much all new and trending stuff, I don't ever find more obscure beers or import stuff. Wine selection is small but there are some good options. I've never gotten more than a "Hello" when visiting, never been offered help or suggestions, hence the average service rating. Pricing is fair. I live nearby and go out of convenience sometimes. Not a bad little spot but pretty average.

I wasn't aware of this store until a friend recommended it and I am so glad he did. Located close to the mall and Cabela's it will now be my go-to beer store. Their selection of singles for build-your-own 6 pack is amazing and with a little help from the owner (he really knows his stuff) I quickly put together a really nice assortment. I went in thinking 6-pack but left with a case. My wife was also very impressed with the wine selection and and picked up a few bottles per the owner's suggestions. He tastes all of the wines before purchasing from his suppliers and can explain the subtle differences between the different labels. If you are in Grandville, make sure to check this place out.

I'm back in town for the summer and my buddy has been telling me to check out this store, knowing my interest in craft beer. Overall an ok spot, but nothing exceptional. Selection is fairly modest, focusing primarily on new release beer with an emphasis on Michigan beers. I guess that's not bad in an of itself, but I like my Belgian beers and other imports and was really disappointed with the selection as far as that goes. Also not many larger 750ml bottles to choose from. Service was average. Prices were reasonable. Overall a decent spot but not on par with some of the other places around town.

Copper Vine is a great place to purchase beer. The staff there is always very friendly and knowledgeable. The selection there is pretty good, occasionally they have had some that I was looking for but for the most part they have everything anyone could want. This place is by far the best place and most friendly place in town to buy beer.

Copper Vine is my go to beer store these days. Jim and his wife always have good suggestions and are very personable. Never been disappointed.

Very large selection of wine along with mix and match six packs. Tons of Michigan Beers with a good selection of hard to find beers from other states. Jim is always getting in tons of new releases.

The new store has given Jim and Nicole more room to add selection's of both Beer and Wine. I always buy here, the selection is incredible, the prices are comparable or less than local competitors, and Jim and Nicole make every customer feel like family ! They have most michigan beers as well as other national favorites such as Stone , lagunitas, Sixpoint, Clown shoes and many others. The coppervine is worth a visit, I'm sure it will become a favorite of yours too!!!
