Couldnt even find the place becuase the sign on the front of the building was gone, I walked in and was immediately greeted by staff,who kept their distance and offered help timely but not annoyingly. Their selection is cramped in space but vast in quantity, lots of singles lining two big racks, with signs indicating new arrivals, and seasonals. Marked down beers which had sat for a while, offerings from Overseas including obscure beers Iíve never seen before. Surly cans kept in the cooler, picked up a BA Quad iíve never seen before and chatted a bit with the help, was willing to offer suggestions. Really cool place, but tend to prefer a different store in the twin cities, would definitely come back though.
I donít think there is a better selection of bombers in the Twin Cities. They always get in the best stuff, and since itís a pretty low traffic place, there is always opportunities to get the beers you want. Great liquor store. Also the guy with the goatee that works there knows SO much about craft beer and is incredibly helpful.
If it were not for the staff at this location, and solid selection I wouldnít come here. It suprises me how high people have rated the ambiance and value. I will say that I am extremely excited to hear that they will be moving to a better and bigger space in the same mall. Like I said, the place is dark and cramped, in a tiny little strip mall, from the out side one might just decide not to go in... But once you get in the people there are willing to do anyhting for you and help you get what you are looking for even if its something outragous. Prices are slightly above average, selection is pretty fantastc!
Located in a "shopping" center, to say this place isnít much to look at is an understatement. Itís fairly small on the inside but unlike most liquor stores beer is clearly the thing here. It must take up half the floor space. They have a number of coolers for the BMC and some craft sixers as well. They have a fairly sizable pick six as well as a nice Belgian section. The service was friendly as well. But compared to what Iíve just seen at Blue Max and Zippís this place is third best. They do have a few goodies I havenít seen at other places but I donít think this is Minnesptaís #1 place.
A fabulous liquor store - doesnít look like much, but donít let that fool you thereís a great selection here. Worth the trip into the suburbs. Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Iíll definitely be back.
Stopped in on Beer Geek Christmas 2012 and didnít get a single rare bottle (my fault, I was late for the opening) and loved it. Great staff, selection and prices. Got a free pour of Surly Five and some nice snacks while browsing. Will definitely be going back.
Small place that packs a big punch. Singles are cramped in a tiny section, but for an out-of-towner, this place really delivers. Great to see that thereís a discount, I believe 10% for mixing a six pack of beer. Seems like they get quite a gew rarities, but thatís just mere speculation. Had a mixer of Surly for me, which I didnít see anywhere else. When my girlfriend and I pulled up to the establishment, as itís pictured, I wasnít expecting much, but they did surprise me. They had some older beers on hand, too, albeit, they were all mainly from 2011. Had a nice selection of European craft, but there was so much local stuff to be purchased, I didnít bother. Great store. Not prententious, and definitely, relatively good prices. Itís good to have family in this neck of the U.S. Friendly folks working the register. Just remember that itís a small space that packs a punch.
