At first glance, I noticed how well organized the beer selection was. Hopefully he pictures do it some justice. I was extremely impressed with the selection of craft beers they had. And the middle was dedicated to just the Michigan brews. As for the “maybe we’ll get lucky” part, that happened when asking about a few specialty beers and if they had got them in the past. The result: the Jolly Pumpkin & Maui Brewing Co. collaboration: Sobrehumano Polena’ole. Not only was the owner, Brian, very friendly and helpful, he checked the back room to see if the recent beer shipment contained anything special that might pique my interest. He did well. He did very well!
Overall, if you’re in the Cadillac area and love craft beer, Willow Mercantile is a great place to stop. They had a fantastic selection of craft beer, great service and probably many other things outside the world of beer that you might need and can find there in a one stop shop.
