Great place, they have a larger BYO6 area than full 6ís. They even give discounts off the listed price on BYO4 and byo6 packs. A moderate sized area of bombers too.

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.

Good selection of both six pack and singles. Sort of pricy though.

Great beer store. Has the ambiance of a beer store. Canít expect more than that. Service has always been great. Ask questions about the products and you will get great answers whether it be beer or other types of alcohol. They also have a vast selection of beer (somewhere around 600) with basically every beer brewed in Michigan.

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.

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.

Holy selection, batman! A hole in the wall with the best selection in Lansing. They claim 600 micros/imports. I donít know if thats right but WOW. If you donít see it, ask cuz they have it somewhere. Every micro I can imagine, sometimes I find things I didnít know were available in bottles, not to mention they are all cold. Ask for service and you will be taken care of, but the staff wonít hound you. Definitely some underinformed employees, but a few serious beer geeks as well. Hands down best beer store in Lansing.

Easily the best place in the area. Just a small place, but an excellent selection. All kinds of local brews, great selection of craft brews. Also a great wine selection.
There are a few guys there who donít know thier stuff, but several of them (and one in particular) are experts. If I have questions, or want recommendations, I always know who to ask.

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.

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.
