Bottle Shop (Mpls/Stp)
The Ale Jail’s expansive pick-your-own-six-pack selection and knowledgeable staff were undoubtedly factors in this St. Paul bottle shop securing another Kind-of-a-Big-Deal Award. The St. Clair Avenue shop features an impressive volume of beers with a breadth of offerings ranging from local flagships to specialty Belgian sours and saisons, meads, and hard ciders. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming for those getting into craft beer and the shop holds numerous beer tastings where you can meet the brewer. The only difficulty you’ll have at the Ale Jail is carrying your haul of amazing craft beers out the door.
