I tend to buy more than I anticipate when I go here since it's a bit of a drive, although no road trip.
If there is a beer you're searching for, literally just about everything this is the number one place I would opt to go. They ave an impressive amount of beers that are categorized by their country of origin. I must say the greatest joy comes from seeing the random cellared beers that they have in stock. I remember seeing 10 year J.W. Lee Harvest Verticals, a 2000 Bigfoot, etc. It's always a surprise and leads me to come here more often that I should.
The service has been great 80% of the time, but you generally have to talk to the right person.
The pricing is very reasonable, especially on Surly or whatever all season offering you're looking for.
Nice displays and organization. I wish they had better hours and perhaps higher quality mixable beers.

Blue Max Liquors Minneapolis MN
Visited on during a business trip on a Tuesday around noon. Well worth the time I spent before I had to jump on a plane for home. If you are out by the airport you are probably only fifteen minutes away. Easy to get to you of South 35E.
Vibe – Clean and well lit, but a typical liquor store vibe. Signs tout themselves as best beer selection in Minneapolis. Most beers in coolers. Signs indicating countries. 3.75
Quality – Most beer in coolers. Did not find out dated beer. 4
Service – I was asked twice for if I needed help. Everyone was friendly giving me the time I needed to look around. 4
Selection – Excellent selection. Local breweries well represented. A tremendous variety of foreign brews. I was particularly impressed with their selection of English beers. They had all four varieties of the J.W. Lees Harvest Ale (regular and three barrel aged varieties) in at least four different vintages. Purchased some Surly Furious and Pentagram, Fulton War & Peace and Jolly Pumpkin Bam Noire 4.5
Food – N/A
Price – $$$ - average to slightly above on the pricing.
