As an EP native, I've know this place for some time. Long enough to know that its a decent store, particularly for being a municapal. As with most suburban liquer stores, focus is mainly on wine, but has a pretty ok beer section, lots of micros, but the micro selections is also pretty decent. Whats there tends to shift now and then, so I won't say what I saw there this time, but usually a surprise or two is to be had here. Service is pretty much not there unless you want it, which suits me just fine, but I doubt they'll go out of their way to find something for me. Overall, should I end up in EP, could have a worse beers store, but would be happier to be closer to Blue Max.

Just of off Hwy 212 Flying Cloud Dr. from 494, go down Leona to the east, head down Den Rd and a can't miss sign of "Eden Prairie Liquor" sits in the middle of a small, dull green highlighted strip mall right across the way from Cub Foods and only a block or so from the Hops brewpub. Upon entering, the store looks very nice, carpeted, a bit flashy with some ceiling decor that goes with with the center isle of sale priced brews.

But actually the first thing is a cooler and a shelf of beers, and this is gonna be it folks for variety. It does have Rogue in good supply and @ $3.99 per bomber, so thats not bad, a mish-mash, hodge podge of imports, Aldaris, Ayinger, and some others make up most of the shelf and cooler. A small selction of Bell's in sixers on the very bottom and thats about it. The other coolers have the same Ol', same Ol', with just a few local micros and imports, but not nearly enough campared to other stores. One gem in that front cooler was Anchor Small beer, hadn't seen that in a long while. So if it weren't for the Rogue and Bell's this place would blow and suck for beer choices.

Service was actually helpful, got asked twice if I needed help finding anything. One woman stocking the isles was literally singing at the top of her voice to the music being played in the store. She saw that I saw her singing, she just smiled, and kept on, this was after she had already asked if I could find anything. That was kinda goofy. Anyways, if you're a local to the area and you want to keep your home stashed with Rogue and Bell's this place has enough for ya. And just a small supply and offering if in the mood for something else.
An average liquor store in my mind.

This place is next to the mall and cub foods, so its pretty convenient. The selection isnt too bad, they have some bells and a few other nicer-brewery offerings. The best reason to come here is if you want to try some local brews. It seemed to me that they had a pretty solid selection of the summits, james page's, and lake superiors. You wont find anything really rare around here. The extent of service is asking for an id with that, sometimes id rather get no help though, unless the clerk really knows what theyre talking about.

I don't know how this place ended up getting reviewed online. It is a pretty standard municipal liquor store in the suburbs. They did have a fairly good selection of beers, i noted many different Rogues and Flying Dog's. I ended up walking out with a Flying Dog sampler pack, for what I thought was a fair price. Wasn't addressed by an employee, except when the asked for my ID. Average is a good description of this place, although it is in a convenient location for me, but that is a subjective quality.
