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.

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.

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.

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.

Itís small and itís a dump, but the selection is good. Single bottles of every thing. Staff varies from good to excellent. This was the first place I found non-supermarket craft beer, itís not as amazing as it was the first time, but still worth the visit.

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.

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.

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.
