4.35/5  rDev -2.2%
quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4 | $$$

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.

They pack a ton of great beer into a small space. I love the look of it - the woodwork is beautiful. Staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. The selection is really great here, with a great variety of midwest/MN beers along with some nice imports. I will definitely go back!

Reviewed this spot a few years ago, now that they've moved into a new location it's only gotten better! They feature really good tasting events, the staff is the most helpful that I've found anywhere. I travel to Minneapolis once or twice a year (from Pennsylvania) and I always make a point to stop in.
BTW, if you make the drive, swing on over to Steel Toe Brewing at the same time for a quick pint and/or a growler fill. It makes for a lovely beer day double banger!
