The best bottle shop in the Twin Cities. There is a great scotch selection, and 1500+ beers, almost all in coolers. They always have things here that no one else does. Service is fine if you get the right person, especially their beer guy Jim. Some staff can be rather surly and unhelpful, but these seem to be new people more often than regulars. I find the best service is available during the day, and not so good in the evening.

1/4/06: Exactly 2 years later I am re-rating Blue Max. Just wanted to add that they seem to have beers I havenít seen anywhere else in the Metro Area. Picked up Dieu de Ciel Peche Mortel and Arcadia Hopmouth Double IPA. 1/4/04: Given all the hullabaloo I had heard about Blue Max, I was a little disappointed. Donít get me wrong, it has an excellent selection...just not as excellent as I had expected. Still for selection it is unparalleled in the Twin Cities. Their beer is organized in a bit of a hodge podge fashion, largely based on Country, with some on shelves and some in refrigerators. A must visit for any Ratebeerian while in town.

Without a doubt the best place to buy beer in Minnesota, and among the best in the Midwest. Jim, the lead beer buyer there, tends to work afternoons and evenings, and he is highly enthusiastic about beer. He has maintained a very diverse list--great Belgians (Dec. 2003: 6 different Fantomes, 8 different Cantillons), tons of Russian/Polish/Czech bottles, a good mix of UK beers (good selection of George Gale, e.g.), and plenty of things from elsewhere. There is a singles shelf where Iíve been able to buy lots of the Bells and Capital beers (there are also six packs) and there are plenty of other goodies. Most everything is stored in coolers. Prices may be a bit high but there arenít too many places you can get some of this stuff, so thatís the choice. Definitely the ONE place I always go when Iím in the Twin Cities.
