Surdyk's is effectively a wine store, as only two aisles (of the twenty or so in the store) are dedicated to beer. Fortunately, the beer selection is quite good--with all of the local suspects well represented (from MN: Summit, Surly, August Schell, Brau Bros, Lake Superior, Cold Spring; from the midwest: Tyranena, Boulevard, Bell's, New Holland, Goose Island, Two Bros) and a smattering of mountain-region beers. The import selection is especially impressive.

Overall, Surdyk's is a good, unexceptional beer store.

Not coming from the Twin Cities, I only visited Surdyk's because of the BeerFly recommendation. There wasn't anything here that I couldn't have found elsewhere in many decent MN and WI liquor stores, but it's a pleasant enough stop. They did have Henry McKenna Single Barrel bourbon, which I'd been looking for for a while and the cheese shop looks very nice... (881 characters)

I was slightly disappointed with this place. Felt like a converted Walgreens/CVS and was not very inviting. The staff was very nice and were trying to help, but I felt the selection was way too generic for Minneapolis and it felt like anything really special would pass them up. (278 characters)

Surdyk's definitely has a wine and spirits focus. 10-15 years ago their beer selection was something to behold, but the shelf space for beer is basically unchanged since then and the selection isn't actually much better either. All that means that they're only a bit above average these days. Prices are average to slightly above average. (338 characters)

High-end liquor store. Prices have become more reasonable, but you're definitely paying more for quality service. Not recommended if you're a beer geek, but a good place for beginners with lots of questions. (207 characters)

They have a good selection especially of Belgians and Germans but watch the labels, some of the imported stuff can sit on a shelf for a long time. Their cheese shop is one of the best in town. (194 characters)
