We stopped here in between stops at Kuhnhenn and Dragonmead. From what I understand, this Wine and Liquor store (and International Marketplace) only recently started amping up carrying micros. Well if that's the case, color me impressed! They have a big selection here of the biggest and best microbrews that the Midwest has to offer, including a great selection of just Michigan beers. Bells, Founder's Arcadia, New Holland, Dragonmead, Michigan, Arbor, Dark House, etc. That's on top of the likes of Great Lakes, Stone, Victory, Dogfish, Brooklyn...well, you get the picture. They also had a very good import selection with a lot of nice offerings. As good as the selection was, the prices were what really impressed me here! I saw a lot of items that were a good $3 less per bottle than what I would have paid at the liquor stores back here in MD or VA. We chatted with the beer manager at the checkout on the way out. He was very friendly and asked us our thoughts on the selection and pricing, as they are trying hard to make the place a beer destination. Well as an out-of-town shopper, I was very impressed and urge anyone local that hasn't heard the word yet that they are much more than just a wine and liquor store here. Definitely check them out.

Champane's Wine Cellars is located on Chicago Rd [13 Mile Rd] in Warren close to the GM Tech Center. Champane's is a large store that is noted for its wine and liquor selection. However, according to its Ad, in January 2008 they added over 80 different micro/craft beers to its already above average selection.
Champane's stocks a good selection of Michigan Brews i.e., Bells, Dark Horse, Dragonmead, Founders, Arbor, Great Lakes, Michigan, New Holland, etc. Other US, Belgian, German, and English/Canadian offerings include [but not limited to] Weinhenstephaner, Hacker Pschorr, Warsteiner, Duvel, St. Bernardus, Tripel Karmeliet [Brouwerij Bosteels], Dogfish, Victory, North Coast, Brooklyn, Sam Adams, Tommy Knocker, Stoudts, Stone, Unibroue, Samuel Smith, and many more.
Champane's has some of the best prices in the metro Detroit area and accompanied with good offerings it's sure worth a trip!

Good prices, good service, good selection.
Can't really go wrong here, especially seeing as they have a few beers I haven't seen around the area. Managed to pick up some Blackout Stout, and at a very good price. The biggest bonus... EVERYTHING IS FRESH!
The selection is pretty big, offering plenty from Stone, Great Lakes, Bell's, Arcadia, Dark Horse... the usual lineups. Plenty of Belgians and imports as well.
The place is definitely dedicated to wine, but their beer selection is by no means limited by this. The service was good, and I was told of a beer tasting they're hosting. They've held on to beer for me, and pointed me in the direction of good rarities I wouldn't have spotted prior.
Prices are much lower here than anywhere else.

Ive been to Champane's Wine Cellar & International Marketplace a few times, and always kind of been underwhelmed by the selection. If you're into wine, it's the place to go, but the beer selection, as fair is it may be, is very overshadowed at this establishment. There's a fair selection of Michigan micros, and a few regional micros, with a plethora of macro brews that are highly touted via POS displays and sale signs. Some of the micros seemed neglected (dust, and even some rust on a few bottle tops) and didn't seem like they were recieving proper attention. I was asked if I needed help by a kind and friendly employee, who unfortunately didn't know much about the beer selection, but was nice enough to try to help. Prices were reasonable, if you're looking for a sale on AB, SABMiller or Coors products, otherwise it's nominal for the micros and imports. It's noted that Kuhnhenn is right up the road, yet this place offered none of their bottlings. Hmmmm. You can stop if you're in the area, but if you miss it, don't lose any sleep.

a very nicely presented store. well kept and neat. but the majority is devoted to wine, a HUGE wine section. the beer selection is small, mostly MIchigan area micros. picked up a sixer of Founders Breakfast Stout, as i was near broke, i didnt spring for the GLBC Nosferatu that i wanted, but the founders was worth it. a nice store the help in the beer section was good, but the front end help needed some work. and what is it with Michigan beer stores and not allowing you to split up sixers, what the hell! oh well, worth a visit anytime, even out of your way

I stumbled across this place on a trip to Kuhnhenn Brewing. The store is big, real big. Liquor and wine selections are great but this is a beer site. The beer selection is very good, Michigan Micros, Out of State micros, imports and stacks of BMC. Prices were very good, found some closeout deals on the Bell's wheat series for $2.99 a six. Also had some nice closeouts in the wine and spirits section. There is a deli in there which was closed on my visit and they were setting up for a wine tasting. I will stop there any time I am in the area.
