Michigan is undoubtedly a beer state, and Ann Arborites are thirstry for new beer-centric small businesses of all varieties. The Beer Grotto, centrally located on the corner of Liberty and Ashley, caters to those in the know about fermented extract of grain, as well as to those just breaking into the beer game. A well educated staff of beer geeks and cork dorks dole out knowledge and samples of local and international beers and wines to curious patrons. Growlers, howlers, and bottles of beer are sold to-go, as well.
