Pretty sweet place, I know the staff decently well, as Iím good friends with both the their former beer guys Mark. Great selection with lots of singles. One of the best bottle shops in the Twins Cities.

Very cool old building. I walked into the beer side and a beer guy approached me and we talked beer for a long time. Great selection separated by styles. Like the four firkins but without the attitude. I will be back to this place again.

A nice store with a great selection of singles and a nice feel. Two rooms, one dedicated to wine and another to beer and cider with a nice rustic feel. Service was good with very knowledgeable employees. Great selection which is showcased by there large mix six selection. Prices are inline with other top area stores. A great store overall.

Definitely wins for ambience, but thatís not really why you go to beer store. Others are trashier but might have more beer. I liked the layout and it definitely has a solid selection of American craft beer, my impression, though was that it was weaker on Belgians.

Stopped here during RBSG. Awesome stop, one of the highlights of the trip for sure. Great selection and I would love to come back here again.

Visited August 17, 2013 as part of RBSG.
These guys opened their cellar to us which was really cool. Naturally everyone grabbed the Cantillon gueuze bottles but they also had some other neat stuff like some vintage Black Ops, four years of Bourbon County, and some three or four year old Alaskan Barleywine. There was a lot of other stuff but I wasnt really looking to buy a ton of beer since Iíd have to ship it home. Upstairs in the regular store are two rooms, one for beer and one for wine. The beer side has an interesting selection. The usual locals, the usual imports, and the usual nation wide brands but mixed in there were plenty of obscure brands that I hadnít seen on shelves before. Pretty much everything is available in singles too. Cool place, would return.

Really nice selection of single 12 oz bottles for making mix 6-pks, the best in the area that Iíve found. Also attached to a wine store. I will probably be visiting this place quite a bit over the next few months, to try all the locally available beers in the Twin Cities.

We are from out of town and visited several beer stores in Minneapolis. This place is where we gladly dropped most of our budget, and the place that any BA reader should visit. There is a great collection of growlers. They had the original half acre growler AND the new one. Any time I see that, Iím SOLD (living on the north side of Chicago). And the Russian River growler, etc, etc, etc. The man working the beer side of the store was extremely knowledgeable, and another one of the customers was a certified beer tasting judge. It is a great place. Stop here if from out of town. Shop here if you live here. These places need to survive.

Good selection of singles with fair prices, with not many past expiration that I noticed.
