South Lyndale Liquors is always a fun experience for me. They have the largest selection of beer I have seen in the Twin Cities. All the locals, as well as domestic BMC, and a huge range of national crafts but also a ton of Belgium and other overseas brews.
The service is something to be desired. I have been in on a couple occasions when their has been a rare or limited release and you have to either ask for the beer by name(it will not be on the shelf) or you have to call ahead and reserve a bottle. Outside of that the guys know their stuff and are very friendly with helping you find what you need.
What you see is what you get I have rarely seen a bottle marked up here; very fair prices. Oh and a final note they allow you to walk in with your dog(my dog has terrible taste in beer she was sniffing on some of the big three) and they give them treats as you checkout.

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.
