Impressive selection, similar price points to the TC metro. Some of the employees may be hit or miss on answering questions, so it helps to ask more than one or come more than once to the store. Selection of craft beer is separated by US and non-US, so that helps narrow things down if looking for something particular. Pretty good place, will definitely be coming back.

Standard that all other beer stores in Minnesota are measured against.

Has a large quantity of different beers, including a nice amount of my favorites. Had a Stone tasting here and they also had some good deals on wine.

Really unbelievable selection of beers. From the outside, this place looks like a typical strip mall liquor store but inside they have an amazing selection. I was blown away and dropped around $200 without even getting half of the stuff that I wanted to get here.

this store is awesome. It has everything Minnesota can get there hands on (beer wise). The store is huge and they use every inch of it to fill with beer. They have colors of imports and cases of american micros. I ca’t comment on service because I only talked to the guy as I was buying the beer. But I think they saw me salivating at the selection and kept there distance. This completes the twin cities trifecta or beer stores!!!

Terrific store - tons and tons of beers to select from, including lots of hard to find beers. Staff is knowledgable and helpful. The mix-and-match 6-pack section is somewhat limited. Fantastic selection of Belgians.

Free standing buliding located just off of 35W. The store is well stocked with a great selection of rare and vintage beers. The staff is quite nice, and always willing to help.

Stopped in here after hearing and reading how great it was. Really didn’t see anything that I can’t get at my more local stores. Cramped aisles. Prices seemed a bit higher than other places. Grabbed some beers anyway though. Not sure if I would really come back or not.

I finally made it to Blue Max after a number of trips to the Minneapolis area. I wish I had gotten here sooner. Putting the other stores in the area to shame it had a nice selection of beers from around not only the Midwest and the United States but internationally. Had it not been for limited space in the car (and a limited budget) I could have easily spent upwards of $300.
If it is available in Minnesota you’ll find it here. The highlights for me were verticals of Gale’s Old Prize Ale and Christmas Ale as well as vintages of other beers that I did not expect to see on a shelf - much less for under $4.00 each. Locally you will get your fill of Surly which was my main attraction but there were also beers from Grand Teton, Pretty Things, De Molen, and other breweries that I would love to explore. There were even a few I had never heard of it but did not pick up because of the $30 price tags.
If you are anywhere nearby you have no excuse not to make a visit here. In comparison to the usual spot that I have been going in Minneapolis this is by far better. From now on I am making a detour en route to the western suburbs.
