Our Approach

A Bespoke, Local Experience

Our wines are shelved by taste, which means that alongside your favorites, you’ll find a tailored collection of similar wines to expand your palate. In our "Floral, Crisp, Versatile" section, you’ll find everything from Chilean sauvignon blanc to Northern Michigan dry riesling to Alsatian gewürztraminer, ranging in price from $10 to over $1,000 per bottle.

Depth and Breadth of Selections to Surprise & Delight

For maximum value and diversity, our wines, craft beers, ciders and meads are curated by our knowledgable staff, drawing on our extensive network of relationships with local and international winemakers, brewers, importers and distributors.

The Most Knowledgeable and Approachable Staff Around

Our staff includes Wine Manager Catherine Cavender, a thoughtful and experienced wine connoisseur, and craft beer enthusiast, Rick Jaissle. We know how to help! And we’re friendly. The Blue Goat takes the intimidation out of wine and craft beer buying, all while helping guests broaden their horizons.

Food to Complement Your Favorite Wines and Craft Beers

We carry an array of artisanal food products, from both local and international producers, to make your daily and event shopping quick, convenient and satisfying. From Boss Mouse Cheese to Great Lakes Chips, Blue Goat is ready for your picnics, meals, and more.
