To me Cap N Cork, and Adventures are the two best in Metro Detroit. I think in terms of what they have and cleanliness of the store, freshness of ingredients, proper storage of yeast and hops, knowlegability and friendliness of the staff, they are pretty even. In terms of those stores I think it really depends on where you live and where you want to drive to. If you're an east sider C&C is the place to go...if you're west of Woodward into the western suburbs, adventures is the place.
Cap N cork is my home shop, it was also the first in Michigan, and Art the (now retired) owner is a legend in the brewing community (he helped most of the other homebrew shop owners get their start, either by advising them, or having them work at his shop) but I go to, or order from and pickup at adventures on occasion. They get some things like kegs and Oak Barrels that other places can't get as much.
So you're good either way.
