Cellars is definitely a contender for Woodbury's best liquor store for beer. When I walked in the first thing i went to was the fridge wall where there were cases of Milller, Bud, and all the other similar beers slowly turning into a small section of 750mL bottles. I was very disappointed until i turned around and noticed an entire row full of hundreds of beers ranging from 12oz's to growlers.
Selection is what you would expect in a higher end beer store with prices varying from cheaper to more expensive than other liquor stores in the area.
I'm yet to talk to anyone working there aside from checking out but that's alright...I am young, sometimes I enjoy browsing without interruption though. I'm sure they have a very knowledgeable staff.

This is worth checking out if in the area.

I walked into the store and noticed that this store really is more about wine than they are beer. The beer is all in the cooler towards the left of the store, so i ventured there. Good price on some of the locals: summit for cheaper than ive seen it for in a while. Not a great selection in the cooler, but a really good selection in the beer aisle seperated by country that it was brewed in. There were some vintage brews i saw one that was labled 1996 as well as some more recent like '06 and '07. Something ive bever seen before though: amystery 6-pack, interesting but i wasnt daring enough

Overall clean, with plenty of employees willing to help. Seems quite cramped in some places. Good variety of American beer, typical selection of imports. Very good prices on imports. For example, St Pauli Girl lager is $10.99 for regular or dark. This location seems to be more specialized in wine, than beer, but will try to get something you request. Has a small selection of glassware where you can pick up pint glasses for about $3.99. I get a 10% discount when I buy large quantities. This is one of the better places I've been in,

This store is pretty run of the mill for Minnesota better beer stores. The selection was more than adaquate, but nothing like Blue Max. I believe I saw every domestic craft beer brand distributed in Minnesota represented on the shelves. They also had a very nice Belgain selection that included some harder to find beers. The only draw back is that most of the craft beer is on the warm shelf. I usually don't have a problem with this, but it is nice to have somewhat of a selection if you are planning on drinking something right away and want it cold. Service was friendly. Prices were average. If I was in the area I would certainly stop by Cellars in Woodbury another time.

Stopped by while working, immediately noticed the Xmas display, lots of Xmas beers and Xmas packs, like the Corsenkonk with two bottles and two glasses, there was a good lineup of Belgians, the typical spread for Cellars of Rogue, Bell's, locals, etc, smaller English section than the other Cellars stores, and less singles selection. But they had glasses, like the Tripel Karmelit with fluer de lis, almost bought it, should've. Was asked if I needed help about six times, that was a good sign. Overall, good impression, lots of good beers, not as good as the Roseville stores, but darn good.

This is my most local decent place to buy beer. They have a nice selection of micro's as well as well as a fantastic selection of imports, especially belgians. They don't only have the normal Victory stuff for example, they will get in V12, Golden Monkey Tripel, etc when available. Decent selection of rogue, good selection of Bell's, many others well represented like Mendocino, Capital, North Coast, Unibroue, et al. Service is top notch. Always someone asking to help that really seems to know/love beer. Prices are on par for what they are most other places.

Ok so I was very pleasantly surprised with my experience at Cellars. The location is a little misleading, as it is not completely viewable from Radio Drive. But once I got inside, I found myself dropping much more money than I expected. Not because it was expensive, but because the service was excellent. The only thing missing was a few local microbrews I wish would have been there, but overall both domestic and imports are more than adequately represented. The stock all looked fresh, although I didn't take time to look too hard.

Excellent beer store for the east metro, has now rebounded from the overall lull in the MN beer scene.

Good selection of beers including many domestic favorites (e.g. Kalamazoo/Bell's, Victory, Hair of the Dog, Rogue, Yellowstone Brewing, Hennipen, etc...), a decent Belgium selection (recently you can find more Lambics and Trappist beers), and much more. Stock generally rotates rather quickly, so little worry about buying old beer.

Excellent service with generally knowledgeable staff (ask for Thad). They hold beer and wine tastings every couple months, so ask to get on their mailing list. Perhaps my only suggestion would be to dedicate additional cooler space to specialty beers.

Well, I must say this was a nice surprise, after spending a little time with a buddy of mine in Woodbury, he suggested we head over to Cellar's to fill his fridge for the Stanley Cup game 6. I was impressed with alot of the micro selections compared to being in the Roseville location some months ago. Lots of the Bell's line -up of the year round stuff. No singles though. Some Victory, Rogue, and other east & west coast regular available goodies. I seriously think the selection is quite close to Surdyk's, (not so much anymore as Surdyks' stepped it up recently) with being under the Belgium, Russian, and German bar as far as selection but good non the less. The staff there was helpful but not nearly as dedicated and actively enthusiastic about having good/better beers to sell then the 2 Roseville stores.
