They have a LOT of things. There wasn’t anything special the day we went there. I was kind of bored. We went to many shops around the city. This was well above average but not a destination for out-of-towners. If you're staying in the area, though, you can get a lot of really good local things to stock up.

They have a bit selection, they seem to keep making it bigger every few months, and they refrigerate a lot of stuff so even if it moves slow it will stay fresher longer. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly and they will deliver locally on orders of more than $25.

I can no longer recommend this establishment due to their speaking out of turn for their customers with regards to Sunday sales. They have a wonderful shop and a very good selection, but to come out and say "our customers have never asked for Sunday sales!" Did you ask your customers?

A- Dimly lit. Beer is in a sort of hidden large alcove in the store. Unlike some other places, parking isn't an issue, which is always nice.
Q- Most beer is kept coolers with some on shelves. No freshness issues
Ser- Friendly, helpful, though frequently you have to make the effort to find someone and ask. Not usually someone roaming.
Sel- A tremendous singles selection, with a fairly strong selection of European beers. Domestic crafts are maybe just a bit behind Zipp's or Four Firkins.
Prices are pretty reasonable.

South lyndale always has a great selection, they usually have the limited releases. Generally they have all the flavors that are distributed around the cities, occasionally you can find a gem because their clientel is not solely based on beer heads.
The beer buyer is somewhat knowledgable about what is in season and the owner is around frequently and enjoys quality beer. The only thing I would like them to do which goes for most of the liquor stores in town is cellar stable beers and offer vintages when new releases come out.
