We get a few questions asked of us again and again, so we figured we'd put some of those answers up here so folks wouldn't have to use all those "words" and be forced into actual human interaction...How much Pappy Van Winkle did you get this year?
It's our policy not to talk about allocations in specific terms. We prefer simple, caveman style responses like, "ungh, we got lots!" or "urrrnfh, we got little" Talking about all those cases we get of Pappy Van Winkle we get each month or the forklifts required to move them only gets other retailers undies in a bunch and our suppliers yelled at.Will you sell me some of that Pappy?
All highly allocated items such as the Van Winkle and Buffalo Trace Antique Collection releases are governed by our Allocated Items Policy.
Save yourself a headache and check that out before calling, writing, or offering your first born to us.Will you hold on to that bottle until I stop in?
Unfortunately, bottle holds are a no no in whiskey heaven. Everything we sell is first come, first served. We need to make things fair for everyone, right? For highly allocated items, this will require a stop in and perhaps a cage fight with other whiskey fiends. For other items, if you want to be 100% sure it will be there waiting for you, simply place an online order and select, "In Store Pickup" and we will email you when your order is ready to be picked up. Why the heck is it so dang cold in your store?
Beer's sworn enemies are heat and light and we do everything in our power to keep our little buddies on the shelf happy. We've blocked all natural light from the windows, we keep the mercury low, and all but three bulbs in the shop are narrow band LED's. The LED's eliminate the ultraviolet rays found in fluorescent and incandescent bulbs that skunk beer.We are looking to buy local, what can you offer?
We're glad to hear you say that! We think shopping local businesses and buying local product is awesome! We've even reserved a couple of spots in our corner of the interwebs for the local products we sell. If you're a beer lover, you'll want to check out all of our Minnesota Made Craft Beer.
