This place must have recently raised their game, because I was pretty impressed by my visit. There were perhaps 300-400 unique beers available, including some very tough to find stuff that usually flies off the shelves as soon as it lands in Minneapolis (think more limited releases from Alpine, TG, Surly, Founders). The European selection was generally stronger than other stores in the area too, which was nice to see. Prices were adequate. Service was laid back but friendly. Overall, this place is worth a look.

This has become a pretty solid store. The mix and match 6-pack section is still fairly small, but they have a ton of beer, and typically get the tougher to find beers / releases.

Very small craft selection, with a small build your own six pack. Ten percent off if you buy three singles so that was nice. Not really a destination store. Average prices.

Visited on a Friday afternoon. Easy to access strip mall right off Hwy 55, between 169 and 100. Layout is typical liquor store, with the beer in the back left hand corner. About 10 cooler doors of craft, a small single selection and a larger rack of warm craft in import beers. Selection was slightly above everyday beer store, good MN representation. Staff was friendly. Decent spot to hit if you are on that side of town.
64 = ★★ (Just ok)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Best part about this place is their craft beer kegs. Iíve purchased 5 gallon kegs from them twice in the last 6 months. When I broke the tub that the keg sits in, they didnít charge me extra for it. Five years ago their beer selection would have been top 5-10 in the Metro. Now it is simply another good selection that doesnít quite rank up there with the elite. Still, there really arenít a lot of other good options for liquor stores with good beer selections in the immediate area, so donít hesitate to stop if you live or are in the immediate area.

Located in a strip mall just off 55. Not a bad place to visit, was just kind of blah. There were 3 people working there chatting it up and not one of them offered to help. Selection was pretty good, nothing special though. Prices seemed good, but nothing caught my fancy outside of the Oberon on the shelf, which gets me excited for the summer. Donít really see a reason to visit this place again.

AMBIANCE - Not so much. Spacious and well organized, though. SERVICE - They "let us browse," as they saying goes. Pretty friendly at checkout. SELECTION - Not bad. 21st Amendment, Goose Island, Deschutes, Surly, lots of locals. The normal MN rotation from what i could tell. Was glad to find Nightstalker and 21st Amend IPA. VALUE - Not really a noticeable difference one way or the other. Some of the rarer items were pricey. OVERALL - Not a bad shop, certainly enough selection to make this out-of-townerís eyes pop.
