This place has a branch at MSP that has about half a dozen craft beers, including Flat Earth, Leftbridge and a bunch of Belgian stuff. Well worth a visit while you are transferring flights.

A wide variety of bottles available at slightly inflated prices. There was a nice selection of European stuff plus a strong selection of locals. Surly Eight was available for $22. Staff were friendly. Overall, worth a peek if you’re in the area.

Great joint - good beer selection, and an awesome cheese shop. Yeah, they do the heck out of wine, too, but whatever :)

A huge liquor store where the focus appears to be more on wine than beer. Large somewhat warehouse feel to the place. Selection is solid but not the best the Twin Cities has to offer. A nice deli selection connected to the store. Prices were a touch high but not ridiculous. A decent store overall.

Overall this is the best liquor store in the Twin Cities, but third for beer after Cellars and Blue Max. Great selection of wine, lots of liquor, and a very respectable beer selection. They do not have the selection of Cellars or Blue Max. Their beer guy, not the buyer but the one who works on the floor, is very friendly and helpful. Surdyks is better for wine, but if you want scotch go for Blue Max. Llots of clear and green bottles under the bright lights. Also has a nice deli. Walk in humidor with a few good things including Padron Anniversario and Ashton cabinet. If you are close stop in but Blue Max or Cellars are better for beer. Best cheese selection, that I am aware of, in the Twin Cities. Lots of other things in the deli including sandwiches, bread, and desserts.

The selection here wasn’t as broad as at Cellars or BlueMax, but you can’t beat the location of this place. Nicely posited downtown, with availability of Surly Cans and a good variety of beers in general. Cheeses were the highlight!

I really didn’t find the selection here to be close to that of Blue Max, but it’s certainly an above-average store, with a strong focus on cigars and other gourmet stuff (nice cheese selection) and quite a few ciders and sakes as well. I really have to complement them on their selections of Scotch, bourbon, etc -- in short, as the tour guide comments, you should check it out.

The beer guy at Surdyks is very knowledgeable, and by virtue of my running into him at the 2003 St. Paul Winterfest, a true aficionado of beer. Their selection is not as vast as that at Blue Max in Burnsville. However, for Ratebeerians who don't have the time to drive the extra half hour from downtown, there is plenty of variety here to choose from. They were the first among an increasing number of metro area liquor stores to stock Russian beers. Not that Russian beers are a huge draw, but it gives you an idea as to their commitment to providing a good international selection.

Some of the other stores have a larger selection of American craft beer, but this place has, I think, one of the better selections of Belgian, German and other European stuff. Worth a visit for sure.

I went on a Saturday night and this place was absolutely hopping. I assume that people were loading up for the dry Sunday and a Vikings game. A solid selection. Lots of stuff in coolers, but the much of the craft stuff was on shelves. I found that some items were out even though they had tags on the shelf. If I find myself in downtown Minneapolis again I will check it out.
