South lyndale always has a great selection, they usually have the limited releases. Generally they have all the flavors that are distributed around the cities, occasionally you can find a gem because their clientel is not solely based on beer heads.
The beer buyer is somewhat knowledgable about what is in season and the owner is around frequently and enjoys quality beer. The only thing I would like them to do which goes for most of the liquor stores in town is cellar stable beers and offer vintages when new releases come out.

Mail order review. Typically I wouldn't review a store based on an online order, but they went out of their way to be helpful.
Placed an order for an out-of-market beer and it arrived 2 days later via Fedex ground. Fast turnaround, and they contacted me right away to optimize the order based on availability/weight/etc. Their website has an extensive selection of over 1500+ beers, including local gems from Indeed, Surly, Schells, Olvalde, Steel Toe, plus a number of obscure imports. Overall I had a great experience with them, and wouldn't hesitate to order online again or visit in person.

They have a bit selection, they seem to keep making it bigger every few months, and they refrigerate a lot of stuff so even if it moves slow it will stay fresher longer. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly and they will deliver locally on orders of more than $25.
