t0rin0  (1529) Do Not Resuscitate, California | August 21, 2013
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 I’d 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 hadn’t seen on shelves before. Pretty much everything is available in singles too. Cool place, would return.

Rather spacious wine/beer store with separate rooms for wines and beers. The beer selection is really good with focus on quality and MN beers. Almost all beers available as singles. Friendly and knowledgeable service. The location is a bit tricky between Mnpls and St Paul.

Good selection for the state including mixed 6 pak section. Vg service. A bit out of the way.

Tremendous store! Huge selection, and nearly all of it is available in singles. And lots of oddball / off-the-wall beers as well. Staff was extremely helpful and knowledgable. Might be my new favorite beer store in the Twin Cities.

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.

Stopped here on Memorial Day weekend ’17 to pick up a few beers for my weekend visit and to bring some beer to a lake outing. Great selection, friendly, knowledgeable staff. Nice location if you are either in St.Paul or Minneapolis. If I was staying longer, would have picked up a lot more, all of the Minnesota and Midwest breweries represented well. Plenty of singles, bombers and sixers, Pricing is decent.

JK  (399) St. Louis Park, Minnesota | July 30, 2007| Updated June 6, 2011
A small but high quality selection. I saw a few Belgian beers here that I have seen no where else. I spoke with the owner who enjoys beer very much and stated he prefers beer to wine, although wine is the focus of the store. There were also White Winter meads, and the best sake selection I have ever seen, including sake drinking vessels. The selection isn’t very big, but this is a very nice, upscale store with an owner who appreciates beer. He buys from Brad, aka "Brad the beer guy" so he is able to get his hands on some of the best beer coming into Minnesota. 6/6/11 selection, huge build your own six pack wall, and friendly service make this easily the best store in St. Paul.

Really nice selection of single 12 oz bottles for making mix 6-pks, the best in the area that I’ve 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.

Why is it that this place has been around since at least 2007 and I’m just hearing of it now? The only reason I heard about it was that I did a random search for one of my favorite beers that was retired a few years ago, Capital Eisphyre, and saw that it was no longer retired. The distribution page said that someone had gotten it at the WTAJ, and then I heard that another beer I’ve been searching for that just came out of retirement, Odell Saboteur, would be having a special tasting there last Friday. So I was able to get the two beers that have been eluding me at the same place. Really nice beer store; the beer side has a much larger selection of beer than the wine side has of wine. The beer side has everything you want in a great beer store: large selection, hard-to-find beers, singles, AND a pretty good selection of refrigerated beers in 6 and 12 packs. For all of those qualities, I’m not sure it has an equal in the Twin Cities other than Blue Max. Firkins lacks the packaged variety and is higher priced.

Definitely wins for ambience, but that’s 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.
