When making a purchase, you generally want to buy from someone who's handled the product before (unless you're buying condoms, because... gross), so it's comforting that the dude behind Bottles & Cans has vast experience with
condoms those two things, having spent years in the beverage distribution game before venturing out with his wife to open a boutique beer and spirits shop. Craft suds make up the vast majority of the inventory, with selections subdivided into their country/state of origin, or broken down into individual bottles for 200-plus choices on the pick-your-own six-pack wall, which, given your beer consumption, is the only way you'll be choosing to have your own six-pack. They're also equipped with a turbo-fridge in case you need to drink that bottle of bourbon-aged Clown Shoes Angry Beast right away, or if you aren't feeling beer, there's a tight but well-curated selection of small-production wines, plus small-batch spirits like the Billberry Black Hearts Gin from Michigan's Journeyman (hopefully Octavio Dotel isn't mad you took his booze). They'll also be hosting free tastings every Friday and Saturday, and when super-limited releases come around (like Bourbon County Coffee and Founders Canadian Breakfast Stouts), they'll always reserve a couple of bottles to have everyone come in for a taste. Hopefully out of cups though, because... gross.
