A great find! This store is right down the road from Lambrechtís Package Liquor (my old favorite in this town). It is a very straight forward liquor store. Hard liquor is down the left, wine in the middle, and beer on the right. Upfront are singles and a box full of 4 and 6 pack cartons. Mostly local craft beers, and a few imports.The Local scene is very well represented here, many Michigan beers were on display; some I had never heard of. Most beers have the Beer Advocate ratings for both users and the bros, ABV and a short description. Behind the singles and the cash register is a large area of bombers and 4/6 packs. Some Lambecs, ciders and Frambios are thrown in as well. Behind that is a series of cooles with most of the same 4/6 packs, and a couple of crafts/imports that are not on the floor. Mixed in the cooler, are the "fake" craft beers (ie. Shock Top, etc) There are also a few coolers full of Macro brews. (They gotta make a liviní right?)
Very clean, very friendly. we talked about cellaring beer for a few minuets, and the owner seems pretty knowledgeable! Overall this place has pretty much anything you could ask for. It rivals the beer stores in much larger towns a little further down the road.

I decided to take a half hour detour from our vacation to check out the Liqour Cabinet. I was specifically looking for a few hard to find MI brews. The overall selection was on par with most highly rated beer stops, maybe slightly below par (from what they had on the shelf). If you are looking for something specific or rare just ask. They keep some select beers in the back. Luckily, I did ask and came away pleseantly surprised.

Average looking liquor store with a decent selection. A large square display greets you as you walk in the door with a decent amount of domestic singles, plus thereís another display behind it of mostly foreign singles as well. A fair amount of six packs, a lot of Michigan stuff I hadnít heard of before my trip here, some cold, many others warm. A nice display of bombers too. Price were in-line with what Iíd expect. Overall, not a bad excursion after going to the Livery.

There are not many stores at which to buy good beer in Southwest Michigan, and this is perhaps the best place to go. There is a decent selection of Belgian and other imported beers, but the highlight is an exceptional selection of microbrews, particularly from Michigan, Illinois and Indiana. As an additional bonus, the Beer Advocate rating is displayed for most of the craft beers. The owner is friendly and helpful, and the beer section is easy to browse. The only down side is that pretty much all but the bombers and imports are sold in 4 or 6 packs only. Highly recommended store.
