The layout is tight but the knowledge of one mustached manager of beer was pretty amazing. Needed an ridiculous array of beer for a tasting and he had 6 out of 10.
What he couldn’t find he said he could order. Parking in back of strip was annoying as the 2 or 3 restaurants were all filled and taking all the out front spots.
Happened to be a Friday and place was busy.
I feel like this place feels snooty. The girl at the counter saw me looking through the racks several time, made eye contact with me and NEVER even asked if I needed any help. Plus it all seems to be a little over priced....but that’s just on my budget.
Can get good help if you need it. Decent selection and they get a lot of top-tier beers, but they hide it, so ask them if you are looking for something rare. Very expensive though, and they have a hard limit. Huge selection of imports. Very crowded and annoying to walk through. Not the greatest place, but still nice.
Stopped by here after leaving Bell’s... its basically a grocery store, has some interesting ethnic things... beer selections is pretty big, but not overly unique, everything but a few Michigan beers are widely available... not a bad place, just not a place you need to visit if you’re from out of town
Located in a strip mall with plenty of parking. Nice little place... like a well-stocked grocery store in the front with wine/liquor and beer in the back. Multiple door cooler on the far side with a few shelves of beer. Not a bad selection. Had your standard breweries (Great Lakes, Sierra Nevada, Founders, Bell’s, Short’s, etc.) coupled with a rather nice Belgian selection and other random international smatterings. Decently priced and worth a look around. You’ll find something interesting.
Stopped by here after visiting the Eccentric Cafe. Typical strip mall setting, and plenty of parking. The staff was helpful and friendly. This place is huge, with a large selections of beer, wine, spirits, meats, cheeses, other foodstuffs, and who knows what else. I didn’t venture into the downstairs wine cellar and humidor. Lots of beer. Nothing terribly rare but a few interesting selections and Michigan and US Micros are well represented. I picked up a few cool bottles and would have gotten more had I not already had too much beer for my luggage. Prices were good. Nice place to stock up on bottles.
Located in a strip mall just off of the business loop of 94, this isn’t much to look at. Within, though, is a great selection of singles, including a number of beers that have a couple (or more) years of age on them. Some of the stuff I have never seen outside of the store (mainly Belgians), and their selection of MI and Ohio stuff is pretty good. Prices are a little high on some things (DFH is outrageous), but pretty average for the rest. Staff is friendly, but I do not know if they know anything about beer. Definitely worth stopping at if you are going through Kalamazoo. Oh, and one final note, there is a container of malt liquor situated above the back coolers that is the craziest container that I have ever seen. Must hold at least 1.5L, and looks to be composed of ceramic shards put together. Never have seen anything like it in my life.

I can see Tiffanys from my house and I’ve made many a dash across West Main to get there. This store has gone through a lot of changes and upgrades over the years, and is continually getting bigger and better. Extensive selection of imported and domestic beers, including large racks of single bottles. Very helpful and professional staff. Large liquor and wine selection as well. Prices are competitive and beat C-Store prices on everyday beers. From time to time, they have excellent beer specials as well. Over the years Tiffanys has been in and out of offering deli fare. Currently, they are back in the game with a nice selection of cheese, olives, breads, and even a keg of olive oil on tap. Good place.
Nice place for better selection than most in the area. Knowledgeable staff that will help you find what you want, and will order what you’re looking for if possible. Good selection of domestic US micros with some Belgians. Wine cellar with some rarities. Humidor in the wine cellar. Extensive liquor selection, with some expensive glass-case and not-for-sales. Decent cheese selection, although many are already cut from the wheel. Deli selection of Mediterranean food. Priced a bit high, but you are in Kalamazoo, not Detroit or Chicago. 10% discount on a six-pack bonus! Overall weighted for location.
