This place is almost across the street from my house and I still haven’t rated it... Solid place. You won’t find too many rare, one offs, stupidly amazing beers, but they do have a tendancy to have the hot seasonals in the coolers for longer than the more ravaged and picked over destination liquor stores. They have a good variety of almost everything in the state that’s made stateside. Their European selection is pretty low. However they recently remodled and all beer is in the cooler. Outstanding! Prices can be on the high side, especially for liquor. Probably not worth driving north for if you’re closer to Cellars Roseville, but one of the best bets this far north in the cities. Updated August 21, 2014. they remodeled a year or two ago and have vastly improved selection. It was solid to begin with, but now it really is great. Likely one of the best in the north metro. If you are in the area, they also have brewer seminars frequently that are really excellent.

This store is huge! Wine up front, but 50 cooler doors across the back. There is also a decent section of warm shelving. Great selection with new beer there every time I go. They have 2 entire doors for make your own 6 packs. Prices on some stuff is higher, but the service is really good, always some beer person around to help.

Very big liqour store, with a fair sized beer section. Lots of Minnesota and Wisconsin beers, fari variety of other micros and imports. Pretty big make your own 6 pack section. Service was great, had 3 different people approach me to see if I needed help! Not sure about the prices, seemed fair at the time, but bought 2 bombers of Leech Lake for $5.99 each, then came on RB and saw other reviewers got them for $3.49 and "below $4".

Nice place when your in the north suburbs. I do find myself stopping in quite a bit. The selection is not bad at all, once in awhile they even surprise you more with a limited brew. Pricing is very fair by far the cheapest within a 10 mile radius.

Was not expecting much when I first visited but was pleasantly surprised. What I first noticed was how spacious the layout of this store is compared to others. Also was expanded summer 2012 with more fridges and an increased selection. Pretty good selection of seasonals and local beers which continues to improve and expand. Also features a create-your-own-six-pack. Definitely one of the best in the north metro.

Stopped in this store on my way up to the cabin after being told about their selection. By far the best and largest selection of craft beers and wine in the northern suburbs. I was greeted as soon as I walked in the store. I didn’t look around long before someone asked if I needed help. Ended up buying much more than I needed due to such a great selection. Definately worth the stop.

This was a good store for the location. Lots of good, if not rare beer. Some very good Belgian ales, nothing sour. Solid domestic selection. Prices are high on everything, beer and everything else. Laphroaig 10 was $10 more than I would pay at Cellars. Unibroue beers were $7.99. Most of the service was friendly, some, not so much and seemed bothered that I was there. Very good beer tasting on Superbowl Weekend. Good selection, especially on wine. Lots of less common Bloody Mary mixes. Make your own six pack section with nothing interesting, and it doesn’t appear they sell individual bottles. One of the larger liquor stores in the Twin Cities, but not really a destination for beer yet.
