Pretty good sized liquor store. Lots of wine and liquor and pretty good craft beer selection. Especially for the area which is mostly blue collar. Mostly six packs and bombers. Picked up a Avery Brabrant. Prices were pretty good from what I seen for the area. They had The Oracle from Bells which was a whole dollar cheaper than what Holiday Market. Good place to stop if in the area.
First thing: split up your six packs!!! The selection was very nice but it sucks when you have to buy an entire sixer. For someone cruising through town and looking for new things, not being able to buy singles of most of the beers is a major inconvenience. Otherwise, a very fine selection of local micros, Belgians, and meads. Certainly worth a stop if you’re in the area just south of Detroit.
been in this store a couple of times. now its going to be one of my stops on the way to the north. very nice selection of michigan based beers and then alot more. they carry alot of things you can’t get in KY. for them i am greatful. the young man who answered questions for me was great but didnt take me back to the double secret location of stash for beernerds. guess i have to earn my stripes with them. but nonetheless found all i was looking for and their prices are awesome. viva le beer my friends see you in the summer.
Pretty decent store. Wide range of michigan micros, with a pretty good import selection. Staff was reasonably helpful, and if nothing else friendly. Even if I did have an Ohio State shirt on at the time.
Kind of like the Champagne’s of Downriver. Not *quite* as cheap in many cases, but close. This is the cheapest beer store Downriver, no doubt. Not only that, they have a great selection, too. Pat & Dave are good guys who will go out of their way to hook-up the locals. I have recently stopped going there as often, only because I’ve moved somewhat out of the area :( but whenever I’m back Downriver, I stop in. They always get in new stuff, too. This is pretty much THE Downriver beer store.
Outside looks like Macro beer Hell. Inside is a Mini-merchants setup. Lots of Macroswill, but a very respectible selection of belgians, Michigan micros and others. Best selection of mead I have seen anywhere. Friendly staff, willing to make orders. Best of all five minutes away from my home.
First bottle shop stop on the michigan trip. Found some good stuff but i didnt buy much because i didnt reallly want sixers of everything. Doesnt look like a god beer store on the outside. Kind of like party shop.
Decent selection, usually a go to if my regular spot doesn't have it. Not a great singles selection or international selection, but they typically have what other places don't. A good spot to stop in if you're in the area.
Quality: The second best beer store in the area besides Merchants. Good selection of beers from around the World/US/MI.
Service: This is one of the weeknesses of DD. If you ask someone about a specific beer, I’m not sure you would get a real good answer. They also have not taken back bottles I have bought there (not sure why not). I’m sure if you asked for a certain product, they would likely get it for you.
Selection: They have one of the best selections of local, domestic, and imported craft beers in the area. Like most stores, I wish they had a better selection of domestic singles.
Value: Some stuff is cheaper than other stores in the area and some is more. I’d say they are pretty competitively priced for what they have.
The best part about it is the fact that the Oak Cafe is about a half mile down the road.
I have not found a place that sells their beer for cheaper than this place. Great selection and great value. My one knock is that for most domestic beers are only sold in 6 or 4-packs. I prefer to buy individual bottles for beers that I have not tried before. They started a make your own 6-pack on Sunday with very limited options. But this is the place to go for great prices on cases, 6-packs, or kegs.
