I like Zipps, if for no other reason than that it is a browser's paradise. There are few beer stores I'd rather spend time in, and I often go out of my way to stop in for a sixer of something. Not that Zipp's carries the absolutely broadest variety of beers, but what they do carry seems somehow appropiate for the store, their Cedar/Riverside/U of M customer base, and the BA crowd that comes here.

Their prices can be thrillingly cheap...sometimes. When they close out stock, they really slash prices, but I find their day-to-day prices are usually higher than most of their competitors. For example, Surdyk's (another terrific beer purveyor) actually undercuts Zipps on just about everything lately.

Still, the store is fun just to be in, and they have one of the most eclectic wine selections I've ever seen, making Zipps a one-stop shop for your tippling needs.

[Note: The emo-punk-goth-slacker staff behind the register is great, unless they overcharge you and you have the audacity to ask for a correction--whoa! Also, they sometimes don't watch the freshness dates very closely, so take a close look before you buy to avoid getting really tired stock.]

One of the best liquor stores in MSP. I was really impressed by the general selection and even more by the selection that they recently unveiled during their cellar sale.

They have a massive selection but they do not always watch their stock and some of their stuff can get old - a three year old bottle of Uerige is going to taste like wet cardboard no matter what.

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.
