About Us

about us

Serving the Twin Cities since 1961.

What started out as a small neighborhood shop has become a true destination for great alcohol service, selection and expertise. We relish our vintage leanings but have come to embrace a little modernity inside. Our recent remodel has given the store quite a face lift, as well as updating our fixtures to be more environmentally-friendly (even with more cold beer than ever!)

Embracing our roots as a family-business shapes every aspect of the store. We know what it takes to differentiate ourselves from the "big box" store experience. When you set foot in our store, you'll see that craft beer is our credo, but our selection of wine and spirits will also astound. Our prices and vast array of products are tough to beat, but we challenge ourselves every year to do more! Stop in to meet our passionate and personable staff who can help you find just the thing to please your palate.
