Decent selection available as singles with prices that were well above average. Managed to find a few I hadnít seen before but at the prices I wasnít looking that hard. Service was okay. Store is cramped and youíre constantly bumping into someone.

Fantastic selection, especially for us out-of-towners unable to get Michigan beers where we live. Not sure Iíll ever get back to Lansing, but if I do this is a must-stop.

pretty much a dump, but quite a decent beer selection. youíll find much better stores in Detroit or Grand Rapids, but this is about as good as it gets in Lansing. organization was iffy at best, but I donít mind looking through everything. best of all, I didnít see anything that wasnít available as a single.

A true BEER store! Unassuming outside, but inside - kid in a candy shop time. All that Michigan has to offer, they have. They even have Stone (I guess theyíre everywhere.) Even obscure brands like Dragonmead. I am touring their IPAs this week. So far I am impressed.

I frequent this store and am surprised I havenít yet rated it. Oades is the best beer store the greater Lansing area has to offer. However, there are better stores in Michiganís other large cities (Grand Rapids, Flint, Ann Arbor, and Detroit), so Oades is pretty much a local destination. Selection is good, and they typically get several of the seasonal beers and special releases other stores in the area donít receive. Stone, Victory, Dogfish Head, etc. share shelf space with an abundance of Michigan micros. The Belgian and foreign selection is relatively limited, however. Quite a few of the staff really enjoy good beer and are always up to date on whatís coming in and when. If youíre in the mid-Michigan area, Oades is the place to shop.

Like stated before, it looks like a hole in the wall from outside, but pretty interesting inside. They had a decent selection of all singles and all in a cooler. You could get some hot versions if you liked. A lot of Michigan beers. One very rare find. Wild Dog Gonzo Imperial Porter in stamped oak box with pin and glass ($43). Man I love this beer, but I canít stand that price. Oh, they had two left by the way.

I check out their nice selection a couple times a year when I am on this side of town. Coolers could be better organized, but its not too troubling because I am going to look at every bottle in the store when I am there.

Hudspart  (27) Byron Center, Michigan | September 2, 2007
Great selection of beers and singles. As to ambiance and service, it is a beer store - what you expect. However, for good hard to find singles and a great selection, a good place to go.

I frequent this store all the time. The ambiance isnít the greatest, but itís not horrible either. Most of the staff are helpful, some are very good. The selection is definitely the best in mid michigan, with over 600 beers. Also, they sell everything in singles. They have a lot of micros and a few belgians. If your in lansing, make the stop.

Easily the best selection in Lansing/East Lansing. Prices are a bit high, but you will find the beers that donít make it to Goodrichís here. Everything available in singles and kept cold. Discount on mix and match sixers. They usually get the hard to find Dark Horse brews like One, Too, Tres, Fore, Double Crooked, etc. Full line of Bells, Founders, Arcadia, New Holland, Jolly Pumpkin, Michigan Brewing Co. Last time I was there they had some Victory, Great Divide, plus the usual. Service can be hit or miss, some of the employees are beer geeks, some know absolutely nothing.
