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.

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

The selection here wasnít as broad as at Cellars or BlueMax, but you canít 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!

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.

I really didnít find the selection here to be close to that of Blue Max, but itís 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.

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.

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.

Went there again (after a very long time) a couple of weeks ago with a couple of friends. One friend has been a San Francisco chef for some years and was amazed at the quality and selection available at Surdykís. We primarily went for the beer, but they had a good wine and liquor selection too. However, they didnít have my two favorite bourbons. Beer selection was decent with a lot of single bottles and six pack of both local, regional, national, and international micro and macro beers on both sides of a decent sized aisle. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Iíll go again.

Great place lots of above average beers and wonderful things not otherwise existing in my area. Clean place w/ some good service (they load your beer in the trunk for you.) They had a large selection of food and such as well but I didnít look through that at all. My only complaint would be that the prices were a bit high.
