For Minneapolis dwellers, this is pretty much an indispensable resource. Excellent selection of New Glarus and Dogfish Head along with a few other tantalizing oddities I canít recall seeing in the Twin Cities. Nothing to write home about when it comes to foreign brews (Samuel Smith and Chimay was about it) or singles (few and far between), but the strong selection of four-pack, six-pack, and full-form American micros and macros is pretty much why youíd be stopping by anyway. That and being open Sundays.
Oh, and the icing on the cake for me was coming across a bottle of Russian Standard vodka sitting on the shelf for a neat twenty-five bucks. Iíve been hoping and wishing and praying for someone in Minneapolis to start importing it and never in a hundred years wouldíve thought Iíd find it in Hudson, WI.

Nice looking, sort of cozy old store, with so much "Wisconsin" feel to it that I felt immediately at home. Selection didnít really seem any smaller than Chiconesí and the service was much, much friendlier and even just a little helpful, which is probably all you can ask for in such a situation. Parking lot/traffic situation was a challenge at the busy time I visited.

Not as good a selection their prices were generally lower than Chicones. Service was much better and a very nice look to the place.

Certainly a worthwhile stop with a different - not really better, and probably just slightly smaller - selection than Chiconeís. "Different," after all, is the reason we find it necessary to cross the St. Croix for beer anyway, isnít it.

Update 5/20/07: Still a good store, but the selection has not expanded and might even be a little smaller. NG six packs are now more expensive than Chicones, and it is unclear if they are serious about more single bottles. Also, the beer list in the restaurant has none of the quality beers sold only feet away in the liquor store. -This is a great store. The service couldnít be friendlier. They definitely care about craft beer and say they are increasing their selecition. Lots of random things we canít get in the cities, and quite a few from Dogfish head. There is a nice, romantic restaurant attached, so bring the wife for dinner. The manager or owner, Iím not sure which, said they offer around 30 beers in the restaurant. Stop here when you go to Chicones. I estimate around 250-300 beers. Some sold as singles, and they seem open to the possibility of expanding the singles selection. My entree with sprimp and pasta was creative and delicious, but the bread served on the side was simple grocery-store French bread.
