What Putnam and crew lack in quantity, they more than make up for in first-hand experience, quality, attention to detail, customer feedback, and about every other criteria you could possibly look for in a high-end beer/wine store. The beer advocate rankings are posted (as of the date the sign was posted) along with Putnamís own tasting notes which are, as anyone whoís met him can tell you, fun; unique; and generally right-on. For those interested in things other than bottles, Putnam makes most of his distributorís keg list available as well at a very reasonable mark up (e.g., 30L of Hoegaarden for like 80 bucks or so). So for parties, family occassions, etc. when you need to introduce Uncle Johnny to a beer other than Miller Lite, Cloverleafís your place. If you live in the Metro Detroit area and are a fan of beer, wine, or liquor, you owe it to yourself to swing by.

Awesome bottle shop. Oh how I wish we had something like this in Ontario. Fantastic selection of imports and regional micros. reasonable prices, actually cheaper than other stores Iíve been to in Greater Detroit. The great thing about this store is that everything is available in singles! Highly recommended.

This place is awesome. The best I have seen in the Detroit so far. In fact, Putnam opened an 84 (or 88, donít recall) JW Leeís Harvest while I was there. A class guy with a nice selection. Stop by if you are in the area. Most Bellís singels are around $1.57.

Word-of-mouth from fellow RBers brought me to this one. They sell singles -- lots and lots of singles! The help there is exceptional . . . Putnamís a real ínet savvy beer lover whoís got it going on over on RBís main beer rating competitor website. Great guy, great conversation, got to sample their bread and cheese, got some freebies that got me buying more . . . usually singles. Great prices. Iím going back there again when I get the chance! It doesnít *look* as big as Merchants, but thatís because itís cut it down to the essentials without a bunch of 6-packs taking up space. All the top accessible and Michigan-accessible beers here. I got the distinct impression that its return-costomership is HUGE, like a large and growing family.

Iíve been purchasing beer and wine at Cloverleaf for a few years now and it just keeps getting better. By no means is this your corner retail beverage establishment, the emphasis here is on quality, not volume. Putnam is not just a manager, heís an activist. From overlooked and under-rated Italian Pilseners to the best local brews to world class lambics Cloverleaf makes up for its smaller floor space by offering just about the best available in Southeast Michigan. I can make the trip to Southfield because I know I will always find my favorites, something new and even some new favorites. Always. And if you like purchasing singles, there is no match as ALL beers are sold as singles. If you have the choice of only one beer store to visit in Metro Detroit, Cloverleaf should be that one.

located in a strip mall/plaza among several restaurants/shops. very unassuming front, but itís clear that the emphasis is on wine. however, the owner is equally passionate about beer--putnam prides himself on his selection of belgians. has the bigger beers from local breweries, otherwise mostly imports. best prices i have seen in michigan! also sells glassware, and liquor--a phenomenal beer store.
