OK - was shopping here for some souvenirs to take back to Texas, & I went here solely b/c of the reviews here. And I am VERY grateful they didn't disappoint! So I figured I'd say some nice stuff.
It's a liquor store, so tons of stuff I wasn't going to look at anyway, but hey, if you're in the area, they look like they'll get all your drinking needs met. Was easy to take the rail+bus to get here. Which is good b/c it was freeezing out!
Tons of regional brews (Surly, Tyranea, Bell's, plenty of others), which was what I wanted. Lots of other US craft beers & Belgians too, though I didn't pick up any - not what I was there for. They even had a special area w/ some aged beers that were recently re-put out for sale. Bombers, sixers, & singles already broken up. They were also very eager to break up any sixer that I wanted broken, which was very nice! I asked a girl working there for help, and she gave me a few more recommendations after I'd already made my initial selections.
Prices were great. Markup on singles was truly not that much considering the quality of the beer.
And service was great. The girl helping me was friendly and helpful. I told the staff I was taking it home in a checked suitcase, & they let me electrical tape & bubble wrap my beers & pack them up right in the store on a separate counter that wasn't being used.
I'll definitely hit them up again next time I'm in the area. =)

Zipp's is definitely one of the best liquor stores in the Twin Cities. They have a great selection of limited run beers, but they also have good prices on stand-by craft beers like Sierra Nevada and Summit. They have a really nice make your own 6 pack selection, and a clearance section of outgoing seasonals if you want craft beer but you're on a budget. Strong selection of liquor and wine as well, although I spend less time in those sections of the store. They do tastings pretty frequently.
