If you’re the kind to chase distribution trucks in hopes of landing a case of the hottest new craft beer, you’ve likely pinned Elevated Beer Wine & Spirits in Minneapolis on your Google Maps app. This Hiawatha booze shop is an ark worth genuflecting before. Fresh, rare tallboys pile in the doorway, tempting you with their fast-turning allure. Out-of-state finds gleam in the light of the cold case, stocked in endless, resplendent rows. To the right are racks upon racks of cut-rate-price liquor for the evenings when you just can’t afford (or metabolize) any more DDH IPAs. Valhalla achieved.
