Located in a strip mall off of Hwy 7. Tucked away further back in the center. Above average selection of both imports and domestic craft beers. Almost half the store was beer, though the cooler space was tiny, so almost all beer is warm. Additionally, there was not really a single selection to speak of. Otherwise, solid beer store choice for that side of town.

Great spot with great service. Was told the bottle count is up around 1200 now by an employee. Almost no 12 oz singles - mostly bombers and 6-packs.

This place had a good selection, but somehow I was looking for more. The depth of their range wasnít the best and a lot of things werenít available in singles. Service was nonexistent. Prices were fair.

Very helpful service. They will let you buy one beer from a six pack, and the build your own six pack selection is large. Almost nothing in coolers, besides Viking.

Stopped in after seeing the high marks here on ratebeer. Blown away by the selection of beers - ended up with enough to last me for a few months. The people working were extremely helpful, knowledgeable and definitely gave me a reason to go back next time I visit Minneapolis. A must visit for anyone in the Twin Cities area.

I lucked out and got to meet/get helped by manager and beer buyer Ryan/Obisbeer, but even if I hadnít Iíd have been blown away by the selection, which IMHO blows away Blue Max. Virtually every Fantome, lots of really rare Belgians, French beers, and the best selection Iíve seen recently of E Euro stuff. Top stop in Minn/StP for me from now on. December 05 update: bit weaker this year, lot of un-filled shelves, and not quite as much rare stuff; still pretty awesome for most cities, and incredible as the 2nd best store in the area (after Blue Max).

11/7/12: Re-Rate. Under at least the 3rd different management since I first started going here. And the current management seems to be struggling. Only about 1/3 of the beer on the shelves has prices displayed, and the "All Beer On Sale" sign in front of the store is only applicable if you ask for the discount when at the check out counter, because they will not remember to include the discount otherwise. Címon guys, get your act together! 2/11/08: First time in the store as US Liquor. The selection is better than itís ever been. There were many beers there Iíve never even seen. Granted itís the first liquor store Iíve been to in MN in 2 yrs, but most of the new stuff was imports, which youíd think would be available in Chicago. The place isnít as tidy as it used to be, but thatís a minor criticism. The prices are a bit steep. Very good selection of Belgians, Germans, and local brews. Full compliment of Bells brews. Still the best liquor store in the West Metro. Owner is very eager and helpful. Give these guys your business. 10/21/05: I now have had a chance to see how things have settled now that new beer mgr, Jason, has been here for awhile. Nothingís really changed since my last visit. Prices are still higher, selection of imports is still incredible, and you still canít get singles of American Micros unless you ask, and even then, theyíll say no on seasonals and special releases. 7/11/05: After the new beer mgr started, they discontinued selling singles of American micros and I could swear their prices are now less competitive. Still a good store, but they donít stand out as much anymore.

Visited a couple times on a recent business trip. One entire half of the store is craft beer. Big selection of local stuff as well as European. The owner was incredibly nice and even dipped into his cellar to let me buy some gems. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area.

Good selection of bombers and 6 packs but hardly any singles. Lots of Asian and European beers. Seemed to be about $1 more for everything but the solid.selection makes it worth it.

Would agree a bit hard to finded tuck away in a strip mall. Been here a few times service is very friendly. There arenít many coolers but beer selection is very large. Lots of imports, especially European. Price is reasonable.
