Stopped by this place on my cities tour during the Odell/Great Lakes releases. Got some cheese and sausage, no beer. The store is nice enough, beer takes up 2 or so aisles plus a few end-caps in this predominately wine store. I was only asked if I needed help finding anything by some clerks stocking stuff, no one who seemed to be any sort of beer specialist. The beer was mostly on shelves, though there was a selection of stuff in coolers. A decent selection of American Craft, Belgians and some of the smaller name imports that I would have expected to see at a store that wanted to look like it had a big beer selection 10 years ago. And the prices! Through the roof. I was at 3 or 4 liquor stores that day, plus the one I work at and I would say Surdyk's was the most expensive or second to most after a Municipal I stopped at. I will probably only stop here if I really need something that no one else has or if I'm in that much of a rush and near by. Also, not having any singles was a big no no. (1,004 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)

Obviously with as big of a liquor store as Surdyks they are going to have a wide selection of liquor, beer wine, cigars, cheese etc....They will have a large staff, an atmosphere of classiness, knowledge of what they sell and obviously try to compete to be the biggest and best liquor store in the area to get anything listed above. But this is all they are. I have had to many experiences of terrible service as well as my friends. Stories that come from the owner (who never sounds very friendly and she answers the phone basically any time you call) to people on the sales floor. I'm sorry, but in today's day of age, you better have good customer service or why should you deserve my business? Sketchiness about some of their pricing on certain beers compared to other neighboring stores concerns me about price gauging. Yeah, liquor laws may not carry the law like gas stations but it's still sketch and pretty lame. Avoid this place, they do not deserve your money. Go to someone who actually cares about you because you thought of going to their store. (1,059 characters)
