Stopped on a Wednesday night, Employees were restocking lots of beer, but no one offered any help to me, which actually is just fine. Lots of old beer and 1200+ beers may be accurate if you count the hundred different mass lagers they have. selection was okay, not overly impressed though.. sorted by country.. really the only gem I found was a 2007 Pannepeut. Other than that there is a LOT of beer here, and if youíre looking for obscure stuff they have that too but not a huge amount of new hot beers, or high quality beer.

Kinda out of the way for me, but Iíll make the trek every once in awhile for the the Belgian and German selection and also their other country selections. Otherwise pretty standard selection.

Very nice store with a great selection of both local and out of state/country brews. Large coolers as well as shelves. No particular system, so a bit of a treasure hunt. A lot of 6-packs but no singles unless you go for 22 oz or higher.

Big and roomy place with a really well organized selection. Very friendly staff, most beer is in coolers which is great. With the drive if youíre at the mall.

One of my all-time favorite stores. Too bad I didnít discover it until a few months before I moved from Burnsville. Ah, I miss it so much and visit whenever Iím back in town.

They literally carry everything that is distributed in MN. The prices are fair and the staff is knowledgeable. Excellent.

This is one of the best beer stores Iíve had a chance to visit. Its a stand alone building next to a shopping center with plenty of parking. What makes this place great Iíd that they have nearly everything refridgertated. They also have a lot of stuff and itís quite a curated selection. They have a fantastic cider selection. One of the best Iíve seen. They have a pretty solid mead selection. They have a ton of reginonal and national craft. They have a cooler thatís almost entirely filled with Rogue beers. Beer is helpfully separated by country. They also have a cooler with Various verticals of Lees Harvest ales. The only debit is that the pick six section needs work but thatís what Zippís is for. Definitely a destination place.

Visited this place last November, and thought I plopped in a rating, at that time, but, obviously, I didnít. Has a decent feel to it. Nothing spectacular, in terms of layout, ambiance, or anything, but Iím of the position - the shittier, the better. The beer selection is fairly nice. They have a lovely selection of 22 oz. bottles, but I was surprised to notice that they were lacking on singles. I canít say completely lacking, as I remember there being some, but nothing like Heritage. The cooler section was nice, and had a couple of beers that I didnít see at Heritage. The prices were a little higher than what I noticed at other places, but not by much. Overall, Blue Max has a nice selection, and believe me - I had to struggle to keep my bill below $100, but I did. I think the good thing is, is that, since they donít have singles, youíre more likely to find the beer you want, as a six-pack is a commitment vs. a single which, if you donít like it, you purchased one. Anyways, I canít speak to location, in terms of convenience. The service was fine, but I never really care too much about that, just as long as people arenít rude.

Was here last year on a trip to the Twin Cities. A huge selection, helpful staff. Hard to choose because thereís so much. The only down side is that you need to watch the expiration dates, as some beers have expired and are still on the shelves. Still, itís well organized (by country) and itís one of the largest selections Iíve seen in a beer store.

This store used to be the go-to destination beer store back in the early 2000ís and late 90s, before most people got into craft beer. I was a regular at this store back then. But, I actually had some of the staff make fun of me right to my face before for asking certain beer questions. I mean, really? You make fun of people who spend lots of money at your store. Talk about having absolutely no clue about how to run a business. The beer guy is very knowledgeable but donít ever question him or anything heís tried. Heís a typical beer snob where he is happy to share his knowledge about beer with you but he also looks down upon your knowledge and thinks he is far superior. Also, he recently was selling Founders Breakfast Stout with a 2 bottle limit. I mean, come on. This is not a rare or limited beer and usually is around for many months. I donít shop here anymore.
