This is the best place to buy beer in Port Huron. It has many of the markings of a regular party store-- it's dominated by snack foods, and has several coolers dedicated to pop and cheap beer. However, there is also a selection of quality beer in the back including many Belgian ales. Rochefort 8 and 10 were available, as well as Chimay, Corsendonk, Delirium and others. There was a small selection of Unibroue, as well as tons of Bells and a good selection of German and Austrian wheat ales. In addition to this, a small but good selection of branded glassware including snifters, pilsner glasses, weizen glasses and tulip glasses were available. As a point of secondary interest, this store also sells quality cigars, wine and has a good selection of Armenian brandy.

I went to Ryan's party store on the way home from Toronto, and was pretty impressed. This place really looks like nothing at all on the outside. On the inside, they have tons of bells, rogue, the goose island stuff is actually cheaper than it is in Chicago, it's a much better selection than I expected. It's still not huge, but I wasn't really expecting to find celebrator and stuff along those lines at a place like this.
I'll definately be stopping here the next time I cross the border at Port Huron.

Ryan's is a place with a solid selection, and some beers that you can't get anywhere else. It's one of the best places in town for that reason. Sadly the prices were a bit higher than I liked.
I do Port Huron beer runs every now and then, and I find going to Wolverine's just down the road first is nice, as it has fairly similar selection at cheaper prices, and then I pick up what ever else at Ryan's.
IMO these are the best stores in town that I'm aware of, and they're both about a 3 minute drive apart. Check em both out.
Sadly I had to bump down the quality a couple notches as a few things we got there had some bad dates on them. If it was one 6pk I wouldn't have, but 4 is another issue.

I live across the river from Port Huron in Canada, and our beer selection is ABYSMAL. I decided to try this place out after reading the reviews here.
Not an enormous selection like i'd hoped, but 1000x better than what I can get at home. I was suprised to see a nice Belgian selection, but most of the micro stuff focused on Michigan and other US brewers ( which is fine with me)
I expected the prices to be much lower however, so i didnt get the haul that I hoped. I only ended up getting a bottle of St bernardus Abt12 (9.99) and a Stone Double Bastard (7.99)
I'll definitely be back to get some Michigan stuff in the future, since its the only way I can get non-canadian craft brews

This was the last stop on our way back to Canada from visiting Michigan for a beer haul. A decent selection for the beer they do have, but I found the prices be at least three dollars more on a lot of bombers then I had found at some other places in the state just down the highway. Even the 4 pk's and 6 pk's were a couple dollars more. They did have The Oracle, so I grabbed one bottle of that and a 4 pk of Founders Breakfast Stout. A good selection for Michigan beers and even some California stuff with some other states too. Not a bad place and good selection, just wasn't too impressed with the prices.

Excellent store, friendly staff, great selection in both coolers and on shelves. Tons of Michigan locals to make any Canadian happy (Shorts, Bells, Founders, Dark Horse) Grabbed a sixer of Shorts ControversiALE. Prices seem dead on to what you would expect. Unfortunately by the looks of the shelves they don't break six packs, although with the store being rather tight I can understand why.
The parking lot is a little small but when we got there there was only two or three cars so we found a spot no problem. Will return before heading back to Canada.

This seems to be the best place to get craft beer in Port Huron, and is very close to the bridge from Canada.
It's your basic American liquor store I'd say, with the entire back row stocked with craft beers. Very good selection of bombers, 4 packs, and 6 packs. Mostly american craft beer but a decent selection of Belgians as well. Some of the beers are refrigerated.
As a Canadian the prices seemed high to me, but I really am not that familiar with how much beer normally costs in the US. For 4 bombers, a 4 pack of KBS and a 6 pack of Founders IPA the bill was just over $60

Possibly the best place in Port Huron to get beer, it doesn't look like much until you get to the back aisle. Lots of singles and six packs, DFH, Stone, lots of Belgian beer, Founders, Southern Tier, Rogue, Bells...too many beers to choose from.
The service is decent, they seem to know what they're doing and they know enough about beer.
They also have some glassware, mostly Unibroue which is pretty cheap, like 2.99 for a nice glass.
Some of the beer is a little pricey, most of the bombers are around $8 on average, but still I would take a store like this over the LCBO any day!

Ryan`s Party Store is a must visit beer run stop for Ontario BAs. Just over the border in Port Huron, easy to find. Its essentially a convenience store with an amazing beer selection. At the back of the store is the coolers stocked full and across the isle is a shelf with more bombers and 6 packs. Great selection, plenty of Michigan locals like Bell`s, Founders & Shorts. Some attention is needed for dating, but if you know your beer releases you`ll be good. I find they have some different stock from the other store in town and thus are an essential stop. One of the highlights worth mentioning is the service; absolutely helpful and accommodating staff.
Downside is not being able to buy singles, they do have a very small mix a 6 fridge that doesn't have many appealing beers. Often find limit of 1 special releases here which is nice as it allows us Canadians a chance to come across limited run beers.
A great destination for American craft beer runs in Port Huron.

Stopped by this place for the first time in March, 2008. I was very surprised by the quaity and selection of beer at this store. I had a long talk with the owner of the store and he seemed very interested in the Craft Beer Scene and he carried a good selction of local Michigan beers as well as some hard to find imports.
Since Port Huron is on the Canadian border and Ryan's is close to the bridge, I believe the good selection of beer is generated by the infulx of Canadian beergeeks rather than consumption by the locals.
If you are in town, give this place a look. The owner's are friendly and are making an effort to offer good beer in a small town.
