Well stocked, if small, shop. I found great beers at good prices. Even some hard to find brews. Attendant was more than helpful.

Not as big a selection as I expected, but they squeeze in quite a few in the two narrow aisles. Tight quarters donít encourage browsing. I did pick up a couple beers I had not seen elsewhere.

Huge selection fun to look through. Really have to be careful on the age of what you are buying. If it is fresh grab it canít tell better look for a Belgian or a bottle conditioned beer so it doesnít matter.

A liquor store with a strong selection and homebrew supplies. Typical liquor store feel with not particularly knowledgable staff. Selection is strong but beers tend to sit on shelves for ever! I would hit other stores in A2.

Really solid selection at good prices. No real staff interactions but nothing negative. Looked like an ok homebrew selection as well but I didnít really investigate.

Located a scant 5 minutes from the Michigan campus youíd think theyíd mention this place in their recruiting materials except for a couple of things. They have a nice range though itís confined to a wall and the fridges on the back wall..The space is entirely too cramped. Itís impossible to see whatís on the bottom 2 shelves. They had a nice mix of local and international crafts but I have doubts as to how often the stock is rotated. One of the bottle of Scottish ale had so much crap floating in the bottom you would thought it was yogurt.

The selection here is mostly along two walls. One contains a decent selection of local and regional offerings. The other are six packs. In both cases prices seemed fair with maybe a slight markup. The aisles are very narrow which could make moving around tough for more than one person. I did not get a chance to check out some of the other places in town so a direct comparison is hard but I would come back here if I was in the area despite the scarce parking.

Pretty decent store, they had few other things then beer in there, They had a few coolers that mostly had beer in them, A few six packs but a lot of singles, Good variety of imports and michigan brews, with a lot of other micros. First place I have actually seen allglash in the store but we didnt get any but very good selection. Interesting store, would stop at again

Stopped by here to get some supplies for brewing and came away pretty impressed for Ann Arbor. The beer selection was pretty big, good selection of international and locals. However, surprisingly they did not have Orval or Westmalle Triple which we were looking for as we were going to brew a clone of one of them, so as a staple surprised Orval wasnít there. A really nice selection of Michigan locals from all the major breweries, and I really liked how they broke down the six packs and allowed you to buy singles of pretty much anything. The ownere was there and said we could order from him anything that we wanted. It was hilarious though becuase Iím pretty sure he was wasted as he tried to tell me Cantillon was Italian and he couldnít understand why no one had yet to purchase the Iris that had been sitting there for 4 years. Overall, a good place to get beer supplies and decent brews.
