Zipps is always an interesting experience once you park in the cramped lot and maybe have to dodge someone insisting you buy them a pint of vodka before walking in the door.

Zipps has a pretty decent layout with none of the shelving requiring you to find a ladder. The craft beer selection is pretty well isolated from the "cooler beers" and is arranged in a decent fashion.

The staff is always helpful and they are willing to break up any 4-6 pack of beer for singles for a small mark-up. This is really awesome for the beers you're hesitant on buying a whole 4-pack of. Tyler is the "beer guy" if you have any questions. They put themselves on twitter but updates are sparse and the details are not always fully revealed. Dumb.

The selection here is pretty top notch, but sometimes has a tendency to move fast just by it's location and the large number of people who traffic here.

Good selection for sure. Was glad we didn't travel as far as we had to get there and then show up to a little mom/pop shop with 15 items! This is far from it. Service was great and best thing was they had awesome music playing while you're shopping! Very good to put you in the mood to spend your beer money.

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.
