Visited August 15, 2013 on the way into Minneapolis.
We stopped in mostly as a last chance to pick up the New Glarus that we all wanted. They certainly do have that. When I walked in I saw the giant pile/display on the left, across from the check out counter. Plenty of the fruit beer, some of the Berliner, sour, and all the regular beers. In the back are a couple of aisles of other beer, most of which were new to me but over all kind of uninspiring. The lady at the checkout was not overly friendly but that’s alright. I don’t really plan on stopping in again anyway.

Solid spot, and one of the 2 must-stops on my trips from the Twin Cities out to Hudson to make a beer run (the other being Casanova, obviously). Most of what they have can also be found at Casanova, but they do have a nice selection of brews, including several (e.g. Three Floyds, New Glarus) that I can’t get in MN.

Ok beer store to visit if you need to get a New Glarus fix. I would recommend Casanova’s over this place. The selection is ok but not excellent.

Chicones is making an effort to increase their selection. I very often see something I havn’t had before, and they now have a larger selection of Dogfish Head than I can find in the Twin Cities. If you have your heart set on a certain beer, call first and be sure it is in stock. The selection is much larger than an average liquor store and there are several quality beers here not found in MN. But lately service has severely declined, and seems to range from indifferent to grudgingly helping when asking for it to sometimes outright rudeness.

Not a bad liquor store, but definitely not up to Casanovas standards. There were some brews available in singles and most of the same stuff you’d find at Casanova at similar prices.

November 04: Basically echoing what others say...your best, closest place to the Twin Cities to get New Glarus and Viking, amongst the more desirable WI beers. Probably 150-200 worthwhile beers when I was last there (July). October 06: Couple more visits make me re-evaluate slightly; service is certainly careless, and I have to say the selection has varied a bit, but does not seem on the upswing. Absolutely no reason other than location for this store to be here.

Nice selection for picking up New Glarus and other Wisconsin beers while visiting the Twin Cities. They have a pretty decent selection of single bottles, but I thought Casanovas had a slightly better selection of individual bottles in Hudson

July 5, 2005: Stopped in on the way to Eau Claire. No DFH 60, 90 or 120 minute but they had the Indian Brown and Chicory Stout as well as again having the 3F’s Alpha King and Robert. Feb 27, 2005: Although this place has a good selection (I’m guessing 100+ beers not including BMC, it’s the beers you can’t get just across the border that is the attraction. I was there today and saw six packs of DFH 60 minute and Raison D’Etre 2000 as well as 3Fs Alpha King and Robert the Bruce. A shelf label also suggested they also carry DFH 90 minute but it was out. Echoing some other comments, a good selection of New Glaurus, Viking, South Shore and Log Jam (among others) is also available. A great stop for DFH and 3Fs starved Minnesotans or for those in the Twin Cities who forgot to do their Sunday football beer shopping on Saturday.

Travel cost of a forty eight mile round trip in a 92 corolla amounts to about three dollars. Not a bad price to pay for all the great micros not available in MN that others have noted. DFH and New Glarus, and Tyranena in abundance plus a couple 3F and Bear Republic. Lots WI products only available in the state. The drawbacks are that there are very few singles available and the selection outside of US products is less than stellar. But this is alright, because since I live in St. Paul it doesn’t bother me a bit to have six Alpha Kings to tide me over until my next visit rather than one.

As has been stated a few times, this is a pretty good place for those of us in Minnesota to get New Glarus and Dogfish Head products. They also had a few Lagunitas, Bear Republic, Oskar Blues and Three Floyds. Their singles selection is really lacking, and their customer service is pretty average. The foreign beer selection here is also not good.
