One of the best stores Iíve been to. Offers 10% off if you make a 6-pack or get 4 bombers. Huge selection of domestic/North American brews as well as International selections. Would go back in a heart beat!

who goes to a party store for ambiance? if you want a good selection of michigan brews this is the place, dude behind the counter knows his stuff, always updating new stuff on facebook, only reason I wouldnt go here would be they were closed

Lots of beer. They put the ratebeer rating on front of most of the beers which is a big time saver since I was going to look it up anyway. Cashier gave us some other store recommendations too.

Lots of selection. If you cant find something you like, then you are hard to please. Rate Beer Ratings throughout the store.

While the place was well lit, outside of that it needs some remodeling. The guy behind the counter knew his stuff but the girl, outside of simply stating she knew ciders, didnít engage in the conversation even when I engaged her...selection was nice, good layout...was hoping for more of an import section but good none the less...the price though...a little to expensive for my taste...and 10%? Thatís barely worth it....give it a try but donít expect any gems

Drakeís has a friendly staff and a pretty nice selection. I like that drakeís caters to Michigan breweries and their pricing is reasonable. They donít have a ton of foreign beers, but Iím usually after the local stuff anyway. They also feature the RateBeer rating next to each beer, which is great. They have recently posting beers they just got in and taking reservations on Facebook. For someone who canít jet over there any time of the day this helps me get my hands on the rare beers that I really want. I absolutely love it!

Definitely caters to beer, which is great. Good selection, too. Tons of Michigan beers: Arcadia, New Holland, Founders, Dark Horse, Shorts, etc. Prices are a little high, but the mixed 6-pack 10% off deal helps take the sting out. Found a Stone Old Guardian for like $7.39, which was decent and Iíve been wanting another one, so that was cool. Lots of Brewery Vivant, too, which was good to see. The guy was really helpful, too, and knows his stuff, so thatís a plus. A good place to swing into in K-Zoo.

A bottle and liquor shop right by Western Michigan University that caters to the college crowd (as is evident by itís ambiance), but has solid prices and a very good selection.

I came in here for the first time(6/8) since I recently moved to Kalamazoo, and boy am I excited to get to know this place. They have so many beers I donít know if my liver is ready to try them all but Iím definitely going to give it a try! The two guys behind the counter were great, the one that came out and helped me certainly knew his stuff about beer, I was really shocked that they were so helpful with it being almost midnight when I was in there. I made my own six pack, and it was a little higher than I was expecting but thatís what you get when you buy good beers I guess. Iíll for sure be back in here and Iíll try every beer they have.

I was really impressed with how much this store has changed. I went to Western for my undergrad and it wasnít anything like this. The staff is knowledgeable but not pedantic about it either. Very refreshing, I had been told by another store that they werenít worthwhile to go to but WOW was that store WRONG! Great 6 pack selection with constant ratings, I always enjoy comparing my opinions with others on the beer and have had several good conversations with the staff here. A must go when you are in the Kalamazoo area
