2.9/5  rDev -7.9%

This is a local flower/grocery store by my house. It contains a decent amount of Belgians but nothing one wouldn't find anywhere else. There is a really good selection of English beers here including Fuller's 1845 where I can't really find anywhere else. The local selection includes Bell's and a few from Founder's and New Holland. Decent American micro selection. The reason why I had to add this though is the sales they have from time to time. I went in a couple weeks ago and got Celebrator Dopple, Sam Smith's (all varieties), and Skullsplitter all for $5 a 4 pack! Best deal I have seen in awhile. Now they have the entire Unibroue line on sale. The products have been moving rather fast so I don't know how long they'll be on sale for but it's definitely worth a try. No help, but this isn't much of a beer store. Decent wine selection across the store and great flower selection. Good place to go and pick up some flowers and a Belgian for your loved one.

This place has really made an effort in the past couple of years to be a leading presence in the Grand Rapids beer scene. They now feature a great selection of beer, complete with the ability to buy singles of anything they have. A year ago they installed a bar in the store and now have 30 rotating taps. You can fill a growler or howler (they sell empty glass or you can bring your own), or you can purchase a beer to sip on as you walk around and grocery shop. They also will let you taste up to 3 beers.

The tavern allows them to do tap takeovers and specialty releases as well. I was there once while they had a Deschutes takeover, and more recently a New Holland takeover featuring the dragon's milk reserve varieties. They also did a rare beer takeover day which included KBS on draft with the ability to fill growlers - awesome!

While their bottle selection may not be quite as good as a siciliano's or rishi's, the 30 taps make this worth being a regular stop.

Very much improved since some of the early reviews. Growler fills from 20 taps now caps it off. A quality shop all around.
