Stumbled on Siciliano's by accident, but had read Beerfly enough to know a stop was necessary.
Very nice selection of both foreign and U.S. micro stuff, with an expected and appreciated emphasis on west and north Michigan breweries. Due to the small size of the shop, the amount they are able to stock of any beer at any particular time is a bit limited. I didn't hit them until about 11:00 p.m. on a Friday night, so some areas were well picked over.
Staff was extremely helpful, and more than willing to check for stock in the back. Staff also made enquiries as to palate preferences, and pointed out interesting things that I likely would have missed due to the somewhat jumbled nature of the store. Staff also pointed out 10% mixed case discount when I went to the counter with a bit less than 24 bottles. Very cool, and much appreciated.
Everything seemed to be available as singles for those who like to try lots of different things. Some dust apparent, but beers tasted so far have all been in fine shape.
There is a nice homebrew supply section which I did not check out in detail as I was travelling. I will definitely be making the drive next time I'm in town. The best beer store I've found in Grand Rapids for sure.

The staff was very knowledgable and walked me to the beers that I needed along with recommending addition local beers that fit my interests that day.
I thought their single beer pricing strategy was an expensive way to buy, but convenient! If visiting Founders stop here to stock your cellar or fridge.

Stopped in while visiting Grand Rapids because we had heard such good things about the place, and was not disappointed.
The atmosphere is tailored to please true beer, cigar, and wine connoisseurs. It can be a bit cramped when the place is packed (which it was) but that would be my only complaint about the building.
The people working when we visited went above and beyond standards of customer service and really made our trip memorable. They informed us of several places we absolutely needed to stop into while we explored downtown Grand Rapids. Without their recommendations we never would have known Brewery Vivant was an essential stop. The service was fantastic.
The selection ranged from a variety of regional brews (our first taste from Shorts was from here, love them) to craft beers from all over the world. A very nice, wide array of choices.
This is one of those absolute must-finds when in the Grand Rapids area.

I have to tell you the staff there are very knowledgeable!! The selection they offer are pretty darn good. Every Friday is new beer Friday and if you buy a case you get 10% off of your total purchase. I could spend hours in this store pondering on what to purchase. This store gets an A+ in my books. I plan to frequent this store often!!

I've been to Grand Rapids many times, but somehow this little gem has escaped me until now. I noticed the recommendations on BA and checked this place out on a recent trip to GR. Their selection is incredible and the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. They have a great selection of local areas brews. If I hadn't already loaded up my car with FFF stuff I picked up earlier on the road trip, I probably would have grabbed more local stuff to bring back with me. I have stores around me that have selections that are nearly as good as Siciliano's, but not nearly as knowledgeable about the beers they carry. Siciliiano's also appeared to have a great selection of home brew supplies, but I didn't go through that area of the store. I appreciated the way they sell everything by the bottle, so I was able to try several different beers that I might not have tried in a full six-pack.
