Pretty nice place, just starting going there but am happy with it. I just got Founders Backwoods Bastard from there for a reasonable price and they gave me one of the few that werenít already spoken for so that made me happy. Also they have a lot of beers that I have not seen anyone else kin the area carry.

Amazing store, huge selection. Ambiance isnt their thing though you are always around other beer and wine lovers. They are always willing to help if you have questions, and are average priced. The only real problem with this store is getting lost in the selection, they have a cooler full of beers for you to choose from with a selection of 6 packs on the shelf, but the shelves dont seem to be organized in any particular manner. If you are in the Lansing area, and love beer or wine, check out Oades.

I wouldnít exactly say íambianceí is part of Oadesí thing, this is a college town liquor store that carries little else. That said, the shelves are stocked by the bottle and it is easy to get lost in their huge selection. Full packs are also available, as well as a huge selection of 1.5 oz liquor shooters. The staff is friendly and helpful, and they also carry girl scout cookies when they are in-season.

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.
