This place has a clean setup. The beer selection is nestled close to the deli so its a win win. I don't frequent this location as much as I do International Beverage a few miles away, but its a worthwhile location to stop into every now and then. They have a decent selection of beers between the shelved beer and coolers.
Greater selection and emphasis on wine if that's your thing. Definitely a place to start if you are looking into expanding or taste testing parties.
Overall a pleasant experience and would recommend it to anyone.

I also frequent this establishment. Great selection of local brews with imported selections as well. They even have singles you can buy of most stuff in coolers.
Very reasonable prices with a fun display of some brands.
I have had some bad/old beer that was on the shelf for far too long, but they were quick to refund my money, so it is forgiven.
I always find something I am looking for and one of the few places that sells Jolly Pumpkin beer in the area to my knowledge at a reasonable price.
A great place for unique Italian/Mediterranean foods and has a superb to excellent wine selection that takes up almost half the store. Overall, a fun place that tends to take up at least an hour everytime I go there.

Nice large market with lots of meats, cheeses, gourmet foods, wine, and a decent beer selection. Much larger selection at Siciliano's and International Beverages, but I scored some Nemesis and Pilgrim's Dole here when most of the other places were either sold out or rationing. Nice find, would expect some of the limited release stuff to last longer at a place like this than the bigger beer stores. Also picked up some nice meats and cheeses. Didn't talk with anyone about the beers so I can't comment on the service. Prices seemed reasonable.

This is more of an ethnic food/wine store and not so much a beer store. As I walk in I smell a great mix of spices and meats and cheeses, very good. Lots of Italian foods and a nice looking deli. The wine selection was also large. The beer was pitted back in the corner and would be easy to miss if one weren't looking for it. But they do have a solid selection English and German beers along with Michigan micros. They seem to be lacking in Belgians and non-Michigan micros so if you're looking for that you might want to go the B&B which is around the corner. As for service, nobody helped me but everything working there seemed nice enough, nicer than the workers at B&B at least. The prices were really good, I don't really think that they make much money on beer so they don't need to charge high rates for it. Definitely worth a stop, esp. if you're also looking to get some quality Italian food or ingredients.
