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?

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.

Since moving into the neighborhood, South Lyndale Liqours has become one of my go to spots. With a relatively knowledgeable staff and a diverse selection of beer, spirits, and wine, you can’t go wrong. Their recent expansion has given them the ability to dedicate a fairly large area to all things beer. This includes a large section devoted to 4-6packs, 375ml, 750ml, etc broken out by international and domestic offerings, and multiple coolers organized in a similar fashion. The only downside is how they typically handle special release / rare beers…see previous reviews. Otherwise, South Lyndale Liquors is definitely worth the visit.

South Lyndale Liquors is always a fun experience for me. They have the largest selection of beer I have seen in the Twin Cities. All the locals, as well as domestic BMC, and a huge range of national crafts but also a ton of Belgium and other overseas brews.
The service is something to be desired. I have been in on a couple occasions when their has been a rare or limited release and you have to either ask for the beer by name(it will not be on the shelf) or you have to call ahead and reserve a bottle. Outside of that the guys know their stuff and are very friendly with helping you find what you need.
What you see is what you get I have rarely seen a bottle marked up here; very fair prices. Oh and a final note they allow you to walk in with your dog(my dog has terrible taste in beer she was sniffing on some of the big three) and they give them treats as you checkout.

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.
