Fantastic selection, especially for us out-of-towners unable to get Michigan beers where we live. Not sure I’ll ever get back to Lansing, but if I do this is a must-stop.

Decent selection available as singles with prices that were well above average. Managed to find a few I hadn’t seen before but at the prices I wasn’t looking that hard. Service was okay. Store is cramped and you’re constantly bumping into someone.

pretty much a dump, but quite a decent beer selection. you’ll 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 don’t mind looking through everything. best of all, I didn’t see anything that wasn’t available as a single.

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 they’re everywhere.) Even obscure brands like Dragonmead. I am touring their IPAs this week. So far I am impressed.

A dump. But whatever. Good selection. A bit unorganized but I like to look around. Solid build-your-own-six-pack selection, and the beer I picked up was recently bottled.

I frequent this store and am surprised I haven’t yet rated it. Oades is the best beer store the greater Lansing area has to offer. However, there are better stores in Michigan’s 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 don’t 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 what’s coming in and when. If you’re in the mid-Michigan area, Oades is the place to shop.

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.

Like stated before, it looks like a hole in the wall from outside, but pretty interesting inside. They had a decent selection of all singles and all in a cooler. You could get some hot versions if you liked. A lot of Michigan beers. One very rare find. Wild Dog Gonzo Imperial Porter in stamped oak box with pin and glass ($43). Man I love this beer, but I can’t stand that price. Oh, they had two left by the way.

Great service, got 15% off a build your own six pack on Mondays which includes bombers, and extra points for all beers being sold as singles.

Great selection of beers and singles. As to ambiance and service, it is a beer store - what you expect. However, for good hard to find singles and a great selection, a good place to go.
