The new store is located just off HWY 100 and Excelsior BLVD in Minnetonka, and has a nice parking lot in back. Still small and cozy, but more room to move around and display a lot more specialty beers. The custom shelving is dark wood, filled with more beers than you can count, most have decorative old empty growlers or cool glassware perched atop them. The centrally located cash register area is nearly an open gazebo made of matching dark wood, and easily accessible from either side for quick check out. Large cooler cases line one wall for those who need to drink their beer right away. An amazing array of brewerania lines the few open walls that aren't lined with shelving. There is a small but well attended bar in the corner of the space where they have tastings of beers and often have distributors and brewers there for beer unveilings. They also have a small selection of beer related books and magazines to fulfill all of your reading needs.

They remain the only all-beer store in the state, though they do have an expanding selection of hard ciders and meads. They have a tiny glass case filled with spirits that are made by breweries such as New Holland and Rogue, but are very selective about what they sell. That selectivity goes for all of their products as well. They don't carry mass market beers at all, but have an amazing selection of craft beers, arranged by style. Sections exist for Belgian, IPA, Strong ales, sours, etc. There is a large wall filled with singles so one can make a mix pack of beers for those of us with difficulty making decisions. Special and limited release beers abound here, making it the first stop when looking for something cool and unusual. My wife heads here for Christmas shopping, asking them to help her pick out something new and rare for under the tree. The staff is always busy, but helpful and I believe that all are trained as Ciccerones or BJCP judges so they really know their stuff.
