We finally made it to this place last night (the official excuse was the Belgian tasting and a chance to try the Christoffel Bok) but really, had been meaning to make it hear for a while. T

his is a small but exceptionally high quality shop. There is as much shelf space for beer as for wine. The selection is excellent especially for its size. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful.
I was surprised to see several brands/beers not available at Sam's.

Prices seemed to be a bit higher than Sam's on some items, but I will happily support the little guy. Especially one that is willing to take a chance on a nice high end beer selection with virtually no mass market beers!

Some nice prizes were some scandanavian brands including Nøgne Ø Imperial Stout and Ølfabrikken Porter

and a brazilian smoked lager Eisenbahn Defumada (actually a whole line of brazilian craft beer I had not seen before from Eisenbahn).

(we tried this last night and it was very nice, moderate smoke (not hit you over the head rauch). Reminded me of one of my favorite smoked marzens from Drei Kronen located just outside Bamberg)

Pretty small and not a huge number of offerings, but the stuff that they did have was high quality. Very helpful staff. Asked about 3 Floyds stuff (because I only saw some Gumballhead and Robert the Bruce on the shelves) and he hooked me up with some Zombie Dust. Made the drive back to Minneapolis a lot better, full of happy anticipation.
