Dog-Friendly Minneapolis Liquor Stores
Surdyk’s Liquor & Cheese Shop
This isn’t so much a liquor store as much as it’s a Northeast Minneapolis destination! Surdyk’s Liquor and Cheese Shop has a srsly impressive array of wine, spirits, and beer. There’s also an award-winning, dangerously delicious cheese shop next door that you won’t wanna miss, but unfortunately pup has to due to Minneapolis regulations. Not to worry tho, there’s enough bevvies to keep your bud busy as you plan your next wine-tasting (or you know, binge-watching with pup on the couch).
South Lyndale Liquors
South Lyndale Liquors store ticks off all the boxes with their stellar selection of world-class wine, fine spirits, and specialty beers. Best of all, this pro-pup liquor store stole our hearts with the pupper in their logo. Let floof come with to browse their aisles or stay home and check out their rapid pickup and home delivery options online.
Total Wine & More
Need a little retail therapy? Sniff no further than Total Wine & More. You could pawsitively get lost in this massive liquor store. As the name implies, you’ll get your daily step count in walking through the wine aisles alone, but don’t sleep on their liquor and beer options too! We recommend grabbing a few different local and seasonal brews to make your own Friday night flight at home. Don’t forget to toss pupper a t-r-e-a-t at the checkout!
