I could not afford to shop here often. No the prices are not high. The beer is just high end. West Lakeview has one of the "tightest" selections of beer I have ever seen. Almost no fluff or filler and minimal BMC. High end Allagash? Yes? Rare Cantillon beers? Sure. Multiple Famtome and Mikkeller beers? Yes. Rare imports? Plenty. High quality American craft beer? Those too.

I can't complain about anything beer-wise. While they didn't have many "everyday" beers like GL Dortmuder Gold or Hop Devil they did have higher end products from Great Lakes and Victory, for example. This is not one-stop shopping but damn is it a great place for rare beers.

I can't say enough, what a wonderful selection of high end beers. Impressive.

Great service, I spent a good twenty minutes talking all things beer with the owner, Kristina. The passion, knowledge, and care were apparent.

A small, neighborhood liquor store with a world class beer selection... I see why this place gets the hype.

Loved it. Simple as that.

Highly Recommended!!

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.
