I heard about this place right here on BeerFly and I just had to check the place out.
First off, seeing the place from the outside you might think it's just like any other package liquor joint- it's in a smallish ciderblock building on a corner lot- it almost looks like it could have been a gas station back in the day.
In fact they do sell the cheap stuff- the counterman was gently chiding a regular as he brought a suitcase of Hamms up to the counter.
But this place has the most concentrated selection of different beers I have EVER seen. You just can't do any better north of the 'cities. The place is like the magic cavern of beer or something- I can't even remember everything.
Another plus was the staff- the guy at the counter was knowledgeable, friendly, and enthusiastic. Most people who work at liquor stores- it's just a job, and they couldn't care less about the "weird beers" because they don't understand them and don't want to take the time to check out their own stock. They don't sell beer, they just take your money. This guy was not that way- he knew his stock, and he took the time to know his customer, which at the time was me.
75 bucks later, I left Duluth with the last of my tiny trunk space filled with beer, and I didn't even scratch the surface.
Reading some of the other reviews here, I notice some talk about old beers. Far's I'm concerned, a good beer can handle a little aging- but the thing is, there wasn't a speck of dust anywhere on any bottle, nor did I see yellowing labels or any other visual cues warning me of such a thing. My impression was that if this was an issue, it's not anymore.
Pricing is kind of the same way- I have no problem dropping 7-10 bucks on a bomber of something I could not otherwise get- it's still waay cheaper than wine or premium vodka or whatnot.
I'm gonna have to hit the place three or four times before the snow flies- I recommend the same to you!

It's always a pleasure visiting Warehouse Liquor. They certainly have the best selection of beer that I have ever seen. The massive array of both American and Import singles are always fun to explore (and I always do for great lengths of time). Most importantly, they always have everything Surly - chilled and ready to go.
I always converse with the staff and get the latest updates on their newest products or what may be coming soon. They are friendly and also very knowledgeable of everything beer (they are not strangers to BA). I don't live nearby, at times I have called ahead, reserved certain selections, and they've been more than happy to do that.
As other reviewers have noted, check the bottle dates as some have sat a while. They're prices are okay, not the best in Duluth, but not unreasonable either.
Overall, a great beer store. I recommend Warehouse Liquor as the go-to place for all your beer needs. A+

Great place to buy beer in the north woods. Nice stop on the way to the Boundary Waters in northern Minnesota. Easy to find in Duluth, near the mall area. Just head up the hill towards the mall. You can find them at two sets of lights after mcdonalds on the corner on the left. The store offers 300 - 400 kinds of micro and import beers by the bottle or six packs or case. They do beer in store tastings, usually every week.
Great selection! Clerks are very helpful and interested in beer. They are a small, locally owned store and always have one of the full time guys to show you around.

This place has been invaluable since we moved to northern MN four years ago. Unassuming from the outside, it's crammed with a bazillion great beers, domestic and imported. I visited last week for the first time in a few months (we live 80 miles away) and found the beer selection substantially updated. Lots of new big-bottle craft beers and several new breweries have been added to the already great selection. The owner is more than happy to walk around and help and is responsive to special requests. I also really appreciate being able to make mixer sixers of everything, which allows one to try several new beers without committing to a whole six pack. Overall- a fun and interesting place to shop and a huge asset for northern Minnesota/NW Wisconsin beer enthusiasts!
