Wow, I was not expecting a store like this in South Dakota. I first thought it was a gas station and convinece store, but boy do they have beer. You walk into the store with pop and candy on one side and booze on the other.

They have a ton of singles that can be purchased at various prices which was nice. They had many great imports and a lot of top 100 beers. A great selection of craft beers. This place beat any liquor store that Fargo has to offer by far.

Some beers that I remember them having:

Jolly Pumkin
Boulevard with a ton of smokestacks
Schells
Mill Stream
O'Dell
Widmer
Sierra Nevada
many Belgium Imports and sooo much more. It has been a few weeks since I was there, so I can't recap the many brands they had for such a small town location.

The service was a little subpar. I was never asked if I need assistance with anything, but that didn't bother me too much as I was finding more stuff than I could afford to buy.

The prices seemed pretty fair and if I lived in the city, I would make it my go to place.

I definitely recommend stopping here if you need some great beer. They also have cigars, wine, and liquor.

Good Spirits is becoming my go-to beer store in South Dakota. Excellent selection of singles, bombers, and six and 12-packs. They also have a half-dozen tap lines and usually have something interesting on draft. They are more than happy to provide samples before filling your growler.

The location is a bit odd, basically a convenience store at one of the busiest intersections in Sioux Falls. Nothing special about the atmosphere but it gets the job done and they cram a lot into their space.

Lots of imports as well as pretty much all the craft beer that's available in this part of the state. They also have a great selection of glassware and a full line of homebrewing equipment and supplies.

The service, in my experience, has always been top notch. Helpful and friendly.

Prices seem to be on par with all the other stores in SIoux Falls and in the area.

Always worth a stop as there is usually something new each time.

I live in a small town in South Dakota with very little craft beers - Sam Adams, Red Hook Longhammer and Shiner to be exact. When my wife drags me to shop in Sioux Falls this place is what makes my trip worthwhile. I always stock up and the selection is the best in South Dakota. Many Belgium beers for those into to them (not my favorite) and they are bringing in different beers all the time. Staff is helpful. My "destination" for a trip I don't look forward too, ie, Empire Mall.

In town for a few weeks of training, so I had to check out this gas station/liquor store. As earlier noted, SD isn't the best state for selection of craft beers, but they have plenty of great local Midwest beers, and a surprisingly great selection of imports, especially Belgians. The homebrew supplies were also excellent, at great prices as well. Staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and not overbearing in any way. Will definitely hit them up as long as I'm here.

South Dakota isn't a great state for beer, as both breweries and distribution are sorely lacking. My ratings for selection and quality take this into account. With that said: This is the best beer store in Sioux Falls and likely the entire state. The staff is knowledgeable and regularly help my dad, who is new to craft beer, find beer that fits his tastes. They recently added growler fills (32oz and 64oz) and even had some Surly on tap. Prices are competitive with the other craft beer stores in town. Taylor's/Good Spirits is my go to beer store in Sioux Falls and I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for craft beer in South Dakota.

Heard about this place on beeradvocate before I left home. From small town so pickings tend to be extremely slim. Much to my surprise this business was full of a wide variety of beers as well as wine and liquor. (Also available were a large amount home-brewing kits and tools.) Staff was extremely helpful. I am new to the craft beer world so was a huge selling point for me. Will definitely be returning. (Which is saying something because this is an hour and a half drive one way.) Glad to find a new place to get hard to find craft beers.

It's basically a gas station market. As you walk in, stay straight from the door and you'll happen upon three racks of beer. Some decent selections here but nothing that would blow your mind.

I was able to grab a Goose Christmas from 2009 and a Brau Brothers Barrel Aged Quad, which is special to me only because I don't live in the Midwest. That was it for me and this was after 15 minutes of searching.

Again, from what I gathered talking to a few people it seems South Dakota may be a little barren in terms of what stores can usually offer so knowing that this would be a better place to stop. However, compared to other states it's firmly middle of the road.

I was in town briefly and looking for local beers. Guided by Beer Advocate I went to this place and found a good selection -- not actually much from South Dakota, but smaller breweries from Wisconsin and Minnesota. A very good selection of craft beers from other areas too and what appeared to be a good variety of homebrew supplies. I appreciated the fact that I could buy singles, so I could try a variety of brands. I wish I had more room in my suitcase. One of the unappreciated detrimental effects of terrorism is the elimination of beer transportation in carry-on luggage.

Clearly the best South Dakota has to offer in beer. If it is sold in our state, they sell it. Brewers appreciate the section of the store dedicated to them, and out of towners like me are pleased that, where appropriate, they have most of their offerings both room temp and refrigerated. Reasonable pricing too. And as a large seller they must carry some pull with distributors, as I am confident that they have had something to do with the selection improvements in our state. So they think about customers in more ways than one.

Knowledgeable and friendly staff. And my bride appreciates the extensive wine offerings as well. Something for everyone. Just a great store.

Located in a gas station of all places. They have a liquor store and homebrew supplies in the building as well. Your one stop shop! The beer is all gathered toward the center of the store and a third are probably in coolers. A nice singles selection. If SD gets any particular beer, this place will certainly be able to get their hands on it. Very nice selection here. Very high quality of belgians that you likely will not find anywhere else in the city. About four different Cantillons on the shelf along with other top notch Belgians. Service is fine, but not great. A nice glassware selection too, but it will cost you. The one beef with this place, is there pricing. It is easily the most expensive place in town. It was higher than the three other stores I visited on every beer I was looking at. I was going to grab a Boulevard Goblet until I saw the $9 sticker price! Found it at another store for $1.99. Brewery labeled pints were marked for $5. Their 750's were a dollar or more than at other stores. Basically, the store is nice, they have the highest quality beers in town with a great selection, but it will cost you more than other stores. If visiting here, it's worth shopping around.

Great beer selection. Found odells friek, cantillon, boulevard rye on rye. Prices reasonable for difficult to find beers. Great selection of international beers such as mikkeler, nogne, dieu du ciel and cantillon. Justin knows his beers and has a good awareness of freshness issues. Definitely worth the stop if you are driving through on I 229.

There were many small bottles available to buy singly. Home brew supplies are available too. I bought several beers from lucky bucket, summit and other regional brewers not available in Kansas city.

I think Taylor's Pantry has a great selection of beer and it also has a great selection of home brewing supplies. the atmosphere is a very over filled convenience store that is very cramped for space. If you don't like tight spaces i would stay away form this place. The problem with a store like this in our area is that going through inventory can be difficult, so this store has a large inventory that is very much past expiration. I understand some big and maltier beers are OK with age but there are small beers that are from 2007 and 2008 and it is 2011. I think this place has a great selection but there are other places that have decent beer selections without the claustrophobia and stale snowflaked beers

Great location on the corner of 41st and Minnesota, always easy to stop by. Huge selection of craft beer, honestly, if it's distributed in South Dakota they carry it. One of the only places in Sioux Falls where I've found Cantillon and Drie Fonteinen. Most 6 packs and many larger format bottles are kept cold. Most 12 oz offerings are also available as singles. Quite a decent selection of branded glassware for those looking for the right glass for their beer. Large homebrew supply section as well.

GoodSpirits is my go to beer store in Sioux Falls. Besides their impressive selection of packages, they have the best single bottle selection in town. If a beer is available in South Dakota, they have it! And, with their homebrew supplies and convenient hours, they are the top notch one stop shop for all things beer in Sioux Falls. They are a must stop for anyone in or traveling through Sioux Falls!

If you have any questions about anything, or need help, ask for Justin - the beer man - he knows his products inside and out! Plus the rest of the staff seems to know their stuff too!

Great place. Awesome selection of beers from around the country and work. Largest selection in Sioux Falls, SD and it's surroundings. Staff goes out of there way to make the experience even better.

The selection of beer range from big breweries like bud and miller/coores to microbrews like New Belgian and Odell to imports such as St Banards Abby and Guineas.

Homebrew stuff from extract kits to grains for the all grain. Brewer. Also can get bottles, pots, cleaners, cornie kegs, and burners. If they don't have it they can get it.

The largest selection in homebrew supplies around. A+ PLACE. No need to shop anywhere for your beer or brewing needs.

There are plenty of places in sioux falls I could go to buy beer or brewing supplies. There is a reason I always return to Goodspirits. They far exceed my other options in service and quality. I think service is really their most valuable asset. It always amazes me how willing they are to help you get what you want. Justin, you rock!

The quality and quantity of thier brewing supplies also beats anyone in town. Again, if they don't have what you want, they will get it for you. The appearance on the outside doesn't look like they would have alot of selection, but it's a whole different story on the inside. They've got so much packed into that store, it's unbelievable.

I like the fact that I can ask questions about any of the beer they have and Justin has the answers for me. Awsome place!
