Fine selection. Owner, Rishi, quickly knew the local availability of ales on my "to try" list. Promotional pricing is good, but many brews, like Arrogant Bastard Ale, were $1 more than other shops. 3/18/10 rerate: Now sells singles of every beer in the store. Lots of cases of the "hot beers" on the sales floor. Be sure to check Rishi for a discount on large purchases. 5/19/14 rerate: New, very impressive, store! Easy to find singles of almost every beer available in area. Prices are a bit higher than competitors, especially for large format bottles.

Their new location is roomy and nicely laid out with a huge walk In cooler. I stop here whenever I am in this area and have time. Usually find several beers I havenít seen elsewhere. Owner is there every time and, yes, is a friendly guy.

extremely friendly staff (particularly rishi himself) and impressive selection. almost all items are available as singles. i havenít been able to figure out the pricing though. nothing appears to be marked other than bombers. new location features an improved selection, far less clutter, and better organization. prices are the only major difference between here and sicilianos.

Large place with a massive beer selection. Whereas many liquor stores also do beer, this one looks like it does beer first and foremost, and also does liquor. Itís obvous that this collection has taken the staff quite a while to put together. Everything is available as singles, of course, and the staff is helpful and knowledgeable. A must stop while in the region.

Visited on a quiet Sunday afternoon in October 2011. Atmosphere: attractive layout, wine and spirits at the front, beer in the back. We were the only ones in the store so I had plenty of room to move around and browse. Service: at first the clerk seemed a bit indifferent; however, after we chatted for a while he dug out some fresh Centennial IPA for me and recommended a couple Michigan lagers for my girlfriendís dad (it was his birthday). Selection: comparable to Sicilianoís and larger than most stores that Iíve come across in the Great Lakes region. I grabbed bottles of Bellís Pale Ale, Oarsman, Lager Beer, and Octoberfest, Flying Dog Gonzo Imperial Porter, Founders Curmudgeon and Pale Ale, Shiner Bock, North Coast Brother Thelonious, and Ommegang Three Philosophers, among many other beers. A half-case of singles and two 6-packs came to $48, which is reasonable in my books. Overall: a great alternative to the competition with very fair prices. Picked up a few gems that I couldnít find elsewhere and left for Graydonís a happy camper. Check this place out.

solid store, clean and well lit, well organized. help was available for both bourbon and cigars (not for me but i overheard). impressive global selection and nice focus on many obscure midwest beers with concentration on MI brews. very nice place.

Easy to find location off 28th street in strip shops with a nice parking lot. The staff was freindly and had good knowledge of beers. Good beer selection with coolers on sides and six packs and singles in the middle. Found new beers. Been coming to area for 10 years, good new find and I will come back
