4.35/5  rDev -1.6%

This is a rather newer operation that used to be by my old place of employment.

The quality and service really shine with this place. The beer is laid out in a rather boutique sort of way and merchandized in an orderly fashion. The group of guys who work here are great and they have really embraced the web and are hands down the best beer store for advertising and promoting themselves on the web.

The sheer small nature of the place means that someone is just a shout away if you have a question.

The selection is pretty good and they someone get special Flat Earth offerings and a good range of imports. I won't say that they have the best selection, but it's certainly good.

The biggest drawback to this place is the price, overpriced in my opinion, but perhaps a necessary for such a small business.

The staff is very knowledgeable about beer and they go out of their way to handle the beer well. They have a steady turnover of product. I find fewer beers past their best by date here than anywhere else in the Twin Cities. Unlike some retailers, they avoid stocking antique beer.

Nice selection. Small place. Beers are overpriced but staff is knowledgable. I don't shop here often as there are far better options in Minneapolis. Kind of a newbies bottle shop. Probably wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.
