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 shop at South Lyndale Liquor a couple times a month as it is across the street from the gym that I frequent. They claim to carry 998 different beers, and I believe that claim. They have a good mix of local and regional craft beers and quality imports. They carry a lot of Belgian beers including a large selection of sours. The service has always been friendly and attentive. Someone always asks if I need help finding anything, and a number of the staff seem to know about of enjoy good beer. Prices are very good too, and there seems to always be a great deal of something good. Overall, South Lyndale is one of the better liquor stores in the Twin Cities area, and I will continue to give them my business.

south lyndale liquors is on 5300 block of lyndale ave in south minneapolis its a full service liquor store but caters to beer and wine first..its newly expanded in the last year with more room to beer..when you walk in the store you see wine first to the left and then displays of beer in the center lobby with lots more brew around to the right and in back of that..they have a whole cooler dedicated to imports a whole wall of chilled craft sixers,,then a wall of bombers/750 ml (warm) 6-paks,4-paks of many craft brews limited ,seasonal and year round both import and domestic the selection is awesome you will definably fine something to drink here ..it is a little pricey but not over the top

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.

Actually visited this place after tracking down a rare wine I was looking for. As far as the wine goes, I had excellent customer service and pricing. When picking up my wine, I stumbled upon a very nice beer selection. Lots of quality and a good selection of beers. They have a solid selection of imports and american with a pleasing local selection of Surly, Summit and others. I spotted some Darkness Tulips here for $3 after paying $7 at the brewery for mine. Overall, if in the area, I would shop here. A very nice beer store that is unknown to many in the Twin Cities.
