Stopped by after abortive vistits to Blue Nile and Town Hall and figured I better get something for my effort. This wasn't my first visit to the store. I was looking for the Chimay gift set but they didn't have it. Picked up a Ommegang 10th Anniversary set instead which I overpayed for. It seems it is always busy there no matter when you go so expect to wait at the checkouts even if there are two open or six. There are always attractive women working tasting stations but they seldom have anything worth stopping to take a taste. Today they had some girly liquor and Bud Select for tasting.

The selection does seem bigger than it actually is. But I did find some interesting beers. If you live in the downtown area this place is worth shopping at for beer but the southern suburbs have better stores for selection and convenience.

Parking is good and easy to get to if you are in the area but I wouldn't make a trip of it, especially if you live in the south Metro. It is a busy store so the stock is especially fresh. Nothing there has sat for years.

I was slightly disappointed with this place. Felt like a converted Walgreens/CVS and was not very inviting. The staff was very nice and were trying to help, but I felt the selection was way too generic for Minneapolis and it felt like anything really special would pass them up.

Surdyk's definitely has a wine and spirits focus. 10-15 years ago their beer selection was something to behold, but the shelf space for beer is basically unchanged since then and the selection isn't actually much better either. All that means that they're only a bit above average these days. Prices are average to slightly above average.

High-end liquor store. Prices have become more reasonable, but you're definitely paying more for quality service. Not recommended if you're a beer geek, but a good place for beginners with lots of questions.

They have a good selection especially of Belgians and Germans but watch the labels, some of the imported stuff can sit on a shelf for a long time. Their cheese shop is one of the best in town.
