Surdyk’s is probably the best place in the Twin Cities to buy beer. They have a great selection of wine, liquors and also beer. The staff is friendly and generally pretty helpful. They have a great selection of micros and imports. It also has a section of the store dedicated to bread, cheese and a deli. This store became the only place for me to buy beer (in the Minneapolis area) beginning my junior year in college. (I am leaving food N/A because it is a specialty market and not a brewpub)

A great store, especially for the traveller from Texas. I flew back with a trunk that almost exceeded the airline's weight limit...imagine me at the ticket counter, popping the top of a goose island seasonal and rating it right there? Staff was friendly and even helped me load my large order in the trunk of my crappy Kia rental car that I abused the shit out of for two days.

Centrally located, this is easy to get to, but don't try to park in the lot right before a holiday - you might get stuck waiting in a line of cars to get a space. There is a fairly good selection, but very little of it in coolers. When I mentioned that Bell's non-pasteurized ales were not in a cooler to one of the employees, he seemed annoyed and told me that "we get them that way". I do go back, but only because Blue Max is a bit of a drive. They really need to get some more cooler space and better service.

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 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.
