What You'll Get
After Capri Sun began transforming people into amorphous metallic globules, wine rose to prominence, offering a similarly complex flavor profile without the threat of spontaneous melting. Celebrate wine, or "nature's Capri Sun," and its entire family of fine fermentations and distillations with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of bombastical brews, whalloping wines, and other loquacious liquors from Merwin Liquors in Hawthorne or Maplewood. This deal is good for either in-store redemption or online orders, and delivery is free to all but the most remote corners of the Twin Cities (check Merwin’s website for specifics).
A Minneapolis fixture since the glaciers receded and left early Minnesotans with the desire for a strong, strong drink, the 8,000-square-foot Broadway Avenue Merwin houses more liquid libations than Dionysus's former home, the Alpha Sigma Sigma fraternity house. Globetrot through German, Belgian, Irish, and domestic craft beers; $10 six packs of New Grist gluten-free beer are also available. Merwin adds elegance to candlelit evenings with a wine selection more diverse than the types of mold that grow on an old set of dentures. Harder stuff such as $10 1-liter bottles of Black Velvet whiskey and Clan McGreggor scotch ($14 for 1 liter) warms any chilly evening. With Bombay Sapphire gin ($26.99 for 1 liter), Casa Noble's two-year anejo tequila ($55 for 750 ml), and Grey Goose vodka ($34.99 for 1 liter), Merwin has 10 times the selection of even the swankest bar and usually fewer fistfights, so it’s an excellent alternative to a night on the town, especially since your bed will always drive you home safely.
Merwin was listed as CityPages Best of Minneapolis Best Liquor Store:
- …Merwin Liquors, at the North Side crossroads of Lyndale and Broadway avenues, is a rough-hewn gem. The 8,000-square-foot booze emporium accommodates all tastes and incomes, from $2.99 bottles of Mad Dog 20/20 to $16.99 four-packs of Belgian ale.
