An excellent store. Sure, it doesn’t have all the fancy trappings of some stores, but it’s easy to see that the saving are passed on to the customers in the form of great prices. They have a great selection of Michigan beers and an excellent selection of quality imported beers as well. they are also known for looking after loyal customers when it comes to allocations of limited availability brews. The staff and managment are knowlegeable and very friendly.
They also have a reasonably good wine selection (even if it is heaviliy California-biased). Most of the staff are just as keen to help with wine choices as they are with beer. Again, the pricing here is second to none. They won’t necessarily have every wine you’re looking for, but if they DO have it, chances are it will be cheaper than anywhere else.
Great selection of all beverages, including soda. Beer selection is impressive, especially the "singles" section which is so often lacking in other stores. Prices are fair and staff are friendly and knowledgeable about beer. Ambience is that of a small warehouse, but who cares?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
