Soon residents of Lansing will not have to drive all the way to Dexter to experience the “Taste It. Love It. Tote It,” attitude of The Beer Grotto. “This is such a neat concept, really a different way of selling and drinking wine and beer,” said Short. “We have what we call tasting pods, little island counters where people can wander through the store, taste samples, and engage with our staff if that’s what they want, or they can use the iPads we’ve set up to scroll through the full tasting notes for the beers and wines we have, constantly updated in real time.”
The Lansing Beer Grotto is expected to open late this year in a 4,100 square-foot building located in the Stadium District. The current space has retail below and residential apartments above.

Beer Grotto President Sam Short has said that "The Stadium District is the perfect fit for us, and we’re excited to offer a variety of Michigan's outstanding craft beer and wine, along with an amazing selection from all over the country and the world.”

Stephanie Wohlfert from Cooley Law School Stadium also feels that the Stadium District is a perfect choice for the new Beer Grotto. “We couldn’t be more excited to welcome our new neighbors to the Stadium District!   Not only is this a wonderful addition that will give Lugnuts fans more entertainment options before or after the games but it also is another nightlife option for the tenants in the new apartment complexes all within a few blocks.  It’s awesome to see the Stadium District continue to move in the right direction and attract more jobs and business to downtown.”

We are excited to see the building up of the Stadium District as well and cannot wait to experience the “Taste It. Love It. Tote It” attitude of The Beer Grotto in our own backyard.
