Amazing store, huge selection. Ambiance isnt their thing though you are always around other beer and wine lovers. They are always willing to help if you have questions, and are average priced. The only real problem with this store is getting lost in the selection, they have a cooler full of beers for you to choose from with a selection of 6 packs on the shelf, but the shelves dont seem to be organized in any particular manner. If you are in the Lansing area, and love beer or wine, check out Oades.
Easily the best place in the area. Just a small place, but an excellent selection. All kinds of local brews, great selection of craft brews. Also a great wine selection.
There are a few guys there who don’t know thier stuff, but several of them (and one in particular) are experts. If I have questions, or want recommendations, I always know who to ask.
Holy selection, batman! A hole in the wall with the best selection in Lansing. They claim 600 micros/imports. I don’t know if thats right but WOW. If you don’t see it, ask cuz they have it somewhere. Every micro I can imagine, sometimes I find things I didn’t know were available in bottles, not to mention they are all cold. Ask for service and you will be taken care of, but the staff won’t hound you. Definitely some underinformed employees, but a few serious beer geeks as well. Hands down best beer store in Lansing.
Great selection and friendly knowledgeable staff that go out of their way to help you. They will also reserve beers for you which is a big bonus. This service however comes at a price and they are consistently more expensive than pretty much any place in the area.
Great beer store. Has the ambiance of a beer store. Can’t expect more than that. Service has always been great. Ask questions about the products and you will get great answers whether it be beer or other types of alcohol. They also have a vast selection of beer (somewhere around 600) with basically every beer brewed in Michigan.
I wouldn’t exactly say ’ambiance’ is part of Oades’ thing, this is a college town liquor store that carries little else. That said, the shelves are stocked by the bottle and it is easy to get lost in their huge selection. Full packs are also available, as well as a huge selection of 1.5 oz liquor shooters. The staff is friendly and helpful, and they also carry girl scout cookies when they are in-season.
