    Not sure what is all coming into Mn right now but I have really taken a liking to the German style lagers these days. Plus I love the hefes particularly in the summer. The problem. I hardly can find them and a lot come in green bottles and I worry about freshness.

    Please recommend a liquor store or two that carries a majority of the following breweries beers and that you would feel likely have fresh beer on hand...or as fresh as expected for an import...Not looking for anything unique just the following (maybe Einbecker is unique):

    Hofbrau
    Paulaner
    Weihenstephaner
    Ayinger
    Hacker-Pschorr
    Einbecker
    Spaten
    Schneider
    -Any others that might be in our state

    I've always had good luck with Cellars in Roseville.

    I'm guessing you'll get a pretty typical list of area stores, but I'll be the first to throw out Blue Max and Zipp's. Usually there is someone at Zipp's who is at least a little aware of freshness.
