Great selection most of what you would want in singles. Great availability of others I have not seen at other places in the Twin Cities. No help really, though I really wasnít looking for any. Decent layout, a bit stinky and dusty. Right there with Blue Max in terms of selection. Blue max wins on Belgian and Eastern European, I prefer Zipps for domestics, particularly in selection in singles. Bonus points for being right by where my Grandmother lived. Brought back memories driving past the earth apartments again. UPDATED - In further visits and pick ups by family, Tyler has been incredibly helpful.

Zipps doesnít have the greatest selection, but they do try to get some good stuff. For a small place, their beer selection is slightly above average and there wine selection is pretty good. The staff doesnít have a lot of experts, but theyíre happy to help and friendly. You can count on finding something you want, and occasionally something a bit obscure (they were one of the first stores in town to carry Flying Dog for instance). Mostly theyíre just a really great for a neighborhood liquor store.

I stopped by here on my way back from my trip to Sconni. The selection is pretty good. They seem to have some Belgians and some US craft brewers I donít normally see around the TCís, but they also carry fewer beers overall. I did get help from somebody, but I had to seek him out. Not a bad place... Update 5/1/2008 - now on my regular two state tour of bottle shops as selection improves daily and service is great.

I usually stop here before or after visitng the Blue Nile, which is right down the street. Nice place for singles. Service is decent overall. The floor staff is very good, but the cashiers seem indifferent at best.

I canít believe I didnít rate this place yet. Tyler and the guys have put together nice selection, particularly singles. Not a lot of cooler space, but thatís not a big deal. I usually speak with Tyler or one of the other managers, so the service is top notch. Excellent selection of Scotch and Sake as well.

I have met two of the guys that work here and thought I would check the place out. Unfortunately neither of them were working and the guy who checked me and my wife out insisted on looking at our I.D.ís and then proceeded to look them up in a book and then tossed them back (Dick). The selection was pretty good. They have quite a few singles and a barrel of sale items that appear to not have been touched in years. They had some imports that I havenít seen anywhere else as well as 12 oz. bottles of various Jolly Pumpkin ales. Aside from the moron at the check out this place was nice.

As a follow up, after my berating of the service, I was contacted by an employee here who apologized to me about the service I received. To go out of your way to make a customer feel better is outstanding!
Tyler keeps improving this store and the tastings that he hosts are over the top.

Yeah, finally had to re-rate this place. It was solid when I first went a few years ago. Now itís just awesome. Solid single selection of locals, tons of Belgian, Scandinavian and German brews. A lot of random US micros I donít see at other shops. Staff is always helpful and knows what they are doing.

The place looks like any other small liquorstore with lots of neon signs and stuff crowding the windows and when you come in the place seems a bit crowded and small. They have a nice selection in the coolers, but its the Singles section you want to go for. Here they have a huge variety of both forign and domestic beers and quit a few from almost unknown microbreweries. Only thing I can critisise them for is not to have more of the local Minnesotian craft and microbrew, even though they have some.

I donít know how the selection used to be here but it was pretty good when I recently went to it. Large amount of singles that, as Stine said, includes things I have not seen elsewhere in the cities. Not as picked over as some of the other good stores are. Appeared to be a decent sake selection too although I donít know much about them. Worth stopping at.
Tyler has done an outstanding job of really making this into a must-stop beer destination in the Twin Cities. Make sure you stop here if in the area.

Singles selection is growing rapidly. A very good American micros crowd with several bottles Iíve never seen at the other good stores, though these (like Cellars, Blue Max, etc.) have a wider and better selection of Belgians. It has become a reliable place to find something different like a Cantillon Lou Pepe Kriek or a Flying Dog BA Gonzo. I recommend everyone to give it another look.
