ABSOLUTELY HANDS DOWN OF THE BEST BEER STORES THERE ARE! WILL HELP YOU WITH ANY QUESTION AND NOT ACT LIKE THEY KNOW SO MUCH MORE THAN YOU (EVEN THOUGH THEY KNOW MORE THAN MOST OF US BEER LOVERES) Karen is extremely helpful and is great with any thing to do with the shipping. I would recommend them to anyone who is wanting to order beer online and receive it without a single problem, there charge for wrapping is minimal, compared to how much they use so that is a huge plus! Go with France44 you will not be upset or disappointed one bit.

I did a lot of checking to see where the best place to stock up on alcohol was. I really wanted a case of Great Divide Titan IPA and some other craft brews. I called and wanted to arrange Bill ordering in a fresh case. He spoke with the beer distributor rep and made sure the product was there and it was fresh. I was impressed by his service and ability to assist me. France 44 has a ton of wine and spirits as well as a great beer selection. I noticed they also had an area (small) to eat too. My son and I thought the food looked really good.
The store is actually located in St Louis Park, just west of Minneapolis. Nice area and there seems to be a lot of activities (positive ones) in the area. I parked on the street but use France 44’s parking lot on the east side of the building. Lots of traffic otherwise.
This is a great liquor store in general. Its a place I go to try new liquors, scope a decent deal on some beer I most likely wont see at other stores, let my fiancee browse the wine selection and do a tasting. Also, if you are looking for beer and cheese/ meat pairings this is by far one of 2 places in the metro I would shop.
Plus, bring your dog!
Visited on a Monday morning. Large, clean upscale store. Huge selection of quality wine, liquor and beer. There is an entire wall of beer, a few racks around that wall, and a large walk in cooler of craft beer. The mix a six was solid, wide variety of local beers that also were marked as $1.99 singles. I was impressed with the import selection, in particular the Belgian. I liked the layout of the walk in cooler, arranged A-Z by brewery. Really nice store, I could have spent a lot of time (and money) here. Almost in the same league as Zipps and Blue Max, though the single selection is more vast at Zipps and the import selection is better at Blue Max.
88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Generic Ambience score given as N/A was N/A. Ordered some Odell and Toppling Goliath to N.C. All arrived well packaged, in good shape and on time. The pseudoSue was great but the Loose Leaf was 6 months old. Disappointed, I posted a somewhat angry review. A day later I received an email that a package was being shipped to me from France44. Without calling or otherwise contacting me, they immediately sent me another 12 pack of Odell. I was very surprised and grateful that the store took this action as 1st step. This is a nice store that carries quality product and goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure customer satisfaction. Individual Shout-outs, kudos and big-ups to Corey Ryan who took care of my order personally. I highly recommend France44.com for anyone interested in mail ordering beer. I am now a loyal customer.

They have alot of regular brews but have really gone away from having a good beer selection.Nothing you can’t find anywhere else. Updated: Things have changed dramatically here as they have almost everywhere. Large walk-in cooler and a shitload of cooler space with tons of bombers and six packs.
Lots of wine,lots of booze,lots of beer.
I found a bottle of albarino wine i had
been looking for plus a bottle of Intrigue
liquor.p.s. dont foget your wallet,prices
here are 20% higher than the store down the street.
Maybe not the best beer store locally judging by some of the reviews, but they ship out of state – all the way to Arizona. I just opened a box with a 4 pack of Surly Furious, a 6 pack a Tyranena Scurvy, a 4 pack of Tyranena Doubly Down ‘ n Even Dirtier and a 4 pack of Founders Double Trouble. Shipped out the next day and friendly emails from the staff. Not cheap, but I love having access to the beers above. If you can’t get them locally, give this place a try.
