Ancient roadside building, set into a hillside with beer caves in the basement, with a bar and growler fills too?? Sign me up.
Big thanks to Howard for braving a severe thunderstorm to get us here right after 9am when they opened (every day apparently). Even though the bar was closed, they ran over and filled a couple growlers of Toppling Goliath Golden Nugget ($9.99 refill, awesome) and were generally super helpful and willing to chat about beer so early in the morning.
The vibe here is super cool if you're into historical buildings, vintage roadside americana and the like. Lots of dark wood with eclectic cool knick-knacks, A giant moosehead, an aquarium with colorful fish and a sunken growler among the rocks, old historical framed photos, and the occasional tin beer sign in the back. Beer shelves are in the back and crammed full. Got a mixed sixer here of a few NG Thumbprint series, and new local American Sky beers from Hudson Brewing Co. They had obscure imports from Birra Del Borgo, Hannsens, Vanberg & DeWulf and others. Craft coolers seemingly go on forever, wrapping along the back wall. Great prices and selection.
Overall a very cool and unique place, I hope to return and check out the Nova next time.

A little jaunt here on Thanksgiving day as just about all the MN stores are closed.
Loved the selections, tons of stuff CA natives could only dreamed about. I saw tons of stuff from New Glarus, Ale Asylum, Lucid, August Schell, Summit, Tyranena, Flat Earth, etc. They break 6-packs only on selected items, which was a bit inconvenient for me.
The other plus is that they do growler fills for superb beers. I brought my Bootleggers & Beachwood growlers & filled them up with Toppling Goliath Golden Nugget & CW Coffee Stout with insane reasonable prices without getting absurb interrogations. The service is straightforward & helpful. They will help you find the beers & answer questions without tapping into your life history.
Overall, I had a good experience here.

Visited on a Monday after work.
A – An old crowded liquor store. Can't beat the location – right across the state line from MN and thus an easy opportunity to pick up beers not distributed to MN (e.g. FFF and New Glarus)
Q - No reason to believe otherwise. Almost everything available cold.
S – Nice, friendly, helpful.
S – Very good selection bordering on great. Lots of singles available on imports and bombers. Less so for 12 oz bottles.

Finally made it to this nearby beer mecca. Very much enjoyed the trip. They have a great selection for growler fills as well as bombers, single bottles (mix and match 6 pack) and other packs of 12 ouncers. They will fill any growler (not just their own) and their growler prices are extremely fair. The selection of hard to find beers in MN was really astounding considering it's right across the border. The staff in the liquor store side weren't terribly friendly or knowledgeable. Not that anyone was unfriendly, just looked bored. However, the staff on the "wine bar" side were fabulous. I plan on making frequent trips here.
