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.

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.

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.

One of the best selections of vintage beers I have seen, had some nice verticals of different beers. One of the better overall bottle shops I have been in, apparently their beer guy wasnít there when I stopped, hopefully next time.

If you are looking for a fancy place, this is not it. But if you are looking for a huge selection, great prices and good service, this is your place. One of the better bottle shops in town. Great if you live in the south suburbs. Tons of imports as well as domestics

A lot of stuff packed into a fairly small space.
Very good selection, including singles and some vintages.
Prices are decent on most things.

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.

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.
