Ancient roadside building, set into a hillside with beer caves in the basement, with a bar and growler fills too?? Sign me up. Big thanks to Howard for braving a severe thunderstorm to get us here right after 9am when they opened (every day apparently). Even though the bar was closed, they ran over and filled a couple growlers of Toppling Goliath Golden Nugget ($9.99 refill, awesome) and were generally super helpful and willing to chat about beer so early in the morning. The vibe here is super cool if youíre into historical buildings, vintage roadside americana and the like. Lots of dark wood with eclectic cool knick-knacks, A giant moosehead, an aquarium with colorful fish and a sunken growler among the rocks, old historical framed photos, and the occasional tin beer sign in the back. Beer shelves are in the back and crammed full. Got a mixed sixer here of a few NG Thumbprint series, and new local American Sky beers from Hudson Brewing Co. They had obscure imports from Birra Del Borgo, Hannsens, Vanberg & DeWulf and others. Craft coolers seemingly go on forever, wrapping along the back wall. Great prices and selection. Overall a very cool and unique place, I hope to return and check out the Nova next time.

The location and building is very interesting and has a great history to it. Beer selection is abundant but availability of a particular beer could be a hit or miss because of the number of growing craft drinkers out there. Living in St. Croix County this is the place I look for my beers.

The Hudson liquor stores stay in business primarily because of the people like me who come across the river from MN to buy New Glarus, The Bruery, Oscar Blues and Hoppiní Frog. The Nova isnít very large and their total bottle count isnít that impressive but what makes this a great place is their selection is focused on great beer that you want to drink. There are so many liquor stores I go to regularly that have hundreds of different beers on their shelves that probably sit there for a long time because most people donít purchase them. The Nova just focuses on the stuff that sells and for that they do a good job. I donít think Iíve ever went in here and didnít find something to purchase. They carry about 7 different Bruery beers, 6 or so Hoppiní Frog, the full line of New Glarus and the full line of Oscar Blues beer. They also just started doing growler fills of Toppling Goliath which is one of the most talked about up and coming breweries.

A must visit place when in Twin Cities area to grab a few things not available in Minnesota. Now they even have Three Floyds stuff and Toppling Goliath growlers. This place canít be beat.

Stopped here right after heritage liquors, and really, it doesnít compare. Much smaller selection, more cramped. Staff is friendly and helpful, and of course they are on the right side of the river to get New Glarus, but otherwise i see no compelling reason to trek from the cities.

This is a pretty good store. Iím not as massive of a fan as some people are. The beer corner is tiny and really, they donít have that many selections of beer compared to the best places in the Twin Cities. It feels like you go into a cave whenever you go into this store. Itís dark, damp, concrete, etc. Not saying thatís bad thatís just the ambiance of this place. This is definitely the go-to destination if you are coming from MN and want to try and get some beers you canít find in MN. I give them props because they seem to have a good deal with Hoppiní Frog where this is the only place in town who gets a lot of their special releases. So, itís worth it a lot of times just for that reason. BUT, sometimes on some beers they actually get less than other places in town. Itís worth a stop for sure if you are in town but donít expect beer Nirvana.

Nice selection for picking up New Glarus and other Wisconsin beers while visiting the Twin Cities. Cool building and they have a bunch of the beer as single bottles.

I needed my Belgian Red/Raspberry Tart fix and they are right across the lake. What a great little place in a super quaint town. Tightly packed in a small area was all their beer, including some sale racks, floor displays coolers and shelves. Beer arranged by brewery. Had some good stuff, including Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast Calvados and oddities from New Glarus. Staff was friendly and offered my boxes, bags, and anything else I wanted. Prices were fair for MSP area.
