This liquor store is ofter home to some fairly good finds. The beer at this store often comes already "aged". Last year (2012) they somehow had a bunch of 2010 La Folie. Last christmas, they had a large amount of 2009 Christmas Ale by goose island. Because they are a college town, the beer price tends to be a bit high but also whoever is doing their prices sometimes doesnt realize whst they are selling and prices things a few dollars less then larger stores in Sioux Falls, SD

Being without competition and nestled in a College Town- I suppose I should have seen this coming. Brookings Liquor Store is priced at top dollar with little to no deals on beer. No "Beer of the Month", no surprise special on that 12 pack of Blue Moon. Just generic top dollar because, "hey- we can."
That said, the selection is decent, though average. They have a nice little selection of "make your own 6 pack" priced at 8.50- after taxes you're looking at 10 dollars.
Coming from Brainerd, MN (A tourist town with lots of liquor competition) where stores will match prices and regularly take quality 12 packs down to 11 dollars, maybe I got a little too spoiled. But if you're looking for a good deal, and a surprising, if not inspiring selection? Head to Sioux Falls and bring your cooler.

Brookings SD is a small college town with not much competition. There is only one liquor store in the whole town and how original they named their facility Brookings Liquor Store. Easily found, because there arent many places to hind in a small town. Take the main drag, or 6th Street (also known as highway 14) and travel past downtown until you see the Liquor sign on the right hand side (north) of the road across from Pioneer Park.
Brookings Liquor Store has a decent variety of beers from the Midwest. Mostly from Montana including Big Sky and Lewis & Clark to Minnesota, August Schell, James Page and Summit, Wisconsin, Leinenkuguels, Goose Island (Illinois) and Boulevard (Kansas). A variety of foreign beers, mostly big names such as Guinness, Bass, Heineken and Duvel. One of the treasures I did find was Sierra Nevada and specifically Big Foot Barelywine 05. Nice to know someone else likes the good beer here too.
There are a large variety of wines and other liquor available in the only liquor store for those into to other experiments beyond beer. The local grocery stores dont really have any selection as all so youre stuck to go here. Brookings Liquor Store does have a good selection but could improve. Only 20 miles west of MN and 3+ hours from NE, it would be nice to have more of a selection coming from either location. Also no 750 or 22s here, they stick to 6 packs alone. The price however is pretty decent. That is relative to other locations. Plus you have the small town friendly atmosphere to welcome you in. Whats not to like?
