Was here last year on a trip to the Twin Cities. A huge selection, helpful staff. Hard to choose because there’s so much. The only down side is that you need to watch the expiration dates, as some beers have expired and are still on the shelves. Still, it’s well organized (by country) and it’s one of the largest selections I’ve seen in a beer store.
This store used to be the go-to destination beer store back in the early 2000’s and late 90s, before most people got into craft beer. I was a regular at this store back then. But, I actually had some of the staff make fun of me right to my face before for asking certain beer questions. I mean, really? You make fun of people who spend lots of money at your store. Talk about having absolutely no clue about how to run a business. The beer guy is very knowledgeable but don’t ever question him or anything he’s tried. He’s a typical beer snob where he is happy to share his knowledge about beer with you but he also looks down upon your knowledge and thinks he is far superior. Also, he recently was selling Founders Breakfast Stout with a 2 bottle limit. I mean, come on. This is not a rare or limited beer and usually is around for many months. I don’t shop here anymore.
One of the best selections of vintage beers I have seen, had some nice verticals of different beers. One of the better overall bottle shops I have been in, apparently their beer guy wasn’t there when I stopped, hopefully next time.
If you are looking for a fancy place, this is not it. But if you are looking for a huge selection, great prices and good service, this is your place. One of the better bottle shops in town. Great if you live in the south suburbs. Tons of imports as well as domestics
Impressive selection, similar price points to the TC metro. Some of the employees may be hit or miss on answering questions, so it helps to ask more than one or come more than once to the store. Selection of craft beer is separated by US and non-US, so that helps narrow things down if looking for something particular. Pretty good place, will definitely be coming back.

Standard that all other beer stores in Minnesota are measured against.

Has a large quantity of different beers, including a nice amount of my favorites. Had a Stone tasting here and they also had some good deals on wine.
Really unbelievable selection of beers. From the outside, this place looks like a typical strip mall liquor store but inside they have an amazing selection. I was blown away and dropped around $200 without even getting half of the stuff that I wanted to get here.
this store is awesome. It has everything Minnesota can get there hands on (beer wise). The store is huge and they use every inch of it to fill with beer. They have colors of imports and cases of american micros. I ca’t comment on service because I only talked to the guy as I was buying the beer. But I think they saw me salivating at the selection and kept there distance. This completes the twin cities trifecta or beer stores!!!

Terrific store - tons and tons of beers to select from, including lots of hard to find beers. Staff is knowledgable and helpful. The mix-and-match 6-pack section is somewhat limited. Fantastic selection of Belgians.
