Visited August 15, 2013.

Walked over here with kbutler and CLevar after the meet and greet for RBSG. There wasnít anything overly noteworthy about the place, just a quiet bar with a fair amount of taps and some stuff on the walls. The place was fairly empty actually. We must have gotten there just before the band because others who went a half hour later said it was busy and there was a band playing loudly. All I know is that I got a beer called Lucid Silo (a saison) and tried a sip of CLevarís Surly Cynic with nectarine wood (or something like that). Over all the beer selection was pretty good. Service was friendly enough but I didnít really interact with the bartender much. Didnít eat either.

Excellent place - on Cedar Ave on the West Bank of the U of M. 28 taps / 43 bottles when we were there, and not diluted with crap beer. Wait staff was friendly, and allowed us to try samples. Didnít try the food, but I will next time back.

Visited Fall 2014. Somehow this was my first time here, for an early dinner. Build-your-own beer flights offered at reasonable prices. My fish and chips was very good. Not a lot of service; you order your food and drinks at the bar, but they were friendly enough. One of the better beer bar tap selections available, and reasonable prices Atmosphere of a dive bar..

Relocated from East Bank (1931 Nicollet Ave. S) location which is now closed. Opened for business officially on 2/16/08, although they are currently in a soft open status, meaning they are open in the evenings from 6pm-close. Soon they will expand their hours to open prior to the lunch hour. Itís a relatively small place. Pinkish-red walls, brand new wooden bar. Bar is pretty good sized. Thereís a stage at the far end of the bar for live music theyíll have Fri. and Sat. nights from 9pm-close that will require a cover charge. 26 taps with a pretty good selection including: 3 Surlyís (Furious, Bender, Two), several Rogues (Charlie, Dead Guy, etc.), 2 Flat Earths, Maredsous 8, Sierra Nevada ESB, Furthermore Knot Stock (tasty!), Rush River Bubblejack, Bellís Two Hearted, Shiner Bock, Beamish, Boddingtonís, Brau Brotherís Scotch Ale & more. Spoke with the beer mgr who, in addition to being a very friendly & knowledgeable, welcomes suggestions for their beer taps. The lines are brand spanking new & clean & they have a weekly rotating tap line schedule. There is no street parking to speak of, but thereís an uncovered lot & a parking structure behind the building, I believe both of which will accept 2 hours of validation. Located a short walking distance from Town Hall brewery (0.2mi) & also close to the Blue Nile (0.7mi). Walking distance from the Cedar-Riverside Light Rail station. Town Hall is easily the better spot despite the similar ratings.

Righty-o. Lots of great taps in one cool cafe where you can read, chat, study, or cause commotion all you want and do it comfortably. Acadia also represents the Twin Cities music scene quite nicely, too. Iíve seen some great shows there, and, to echo the last opinion, some damn awful ones as well. My grilled cheese sandwich was well over-cheesed, but with 24 taps and plenty of interesting musicians thereís no reason to stay away for long.

drpimento  (152) La Crosse, Wisconsin | March 25, 2010
Nice place. Stamped tin ceiling. Friendly, knowledgable, helpful staff. Wood bar, terrazo floor, 24 taps with one root beer. Lots of Belgians, micros, and regional beers. Food and brewerian art. Spiral ceiling ductwork. No matched glassware. Has a full service bar with whiskey, wine, licquer, other liquors. Nice windows, a little stage with occassional live music.Located on the corner near another good beer bar, the Nomad

Another good bar near the U of M West Bank. The í06 Darkness release probably could have been handled a little better, but they got things done. The staff seemed friendly after things started to calm down. Pretty good selection of both taps and bottles. I did not have any food but from what I saw it looked pretty good. Iíll have to go again some time when there is not a special release so that I can better judge the place.

Solid lineup of 28 taps with no macros... Lots of premium taps with a couple super-premium. Server allowed for a sample or two before choosing the right pour. Proper glassware and appropriate serving size. Sandwich was great, fries were amazing. If I lived in the area, this would be a constant lunchtime spot.

Cafe / beer bar between Town Hall and Blue Nile (walkable distance from the former). Lots of local beers on tap: 3 Surly, Flat Earth, Summit, etc. Seemingly more of a cafe than anything, but there are probably upwards of twenty taps and plenty of local and Belgian bottles available. They seem to have seasonals available longer than other places, if only because theyíre a coffee shop and small music venue doubling as a beer bar. Probably got the last pour of the Surly Hell anywhere nearby, which was a nice surprise.

Bar in the West Bank area. 28 taps, 37 bottled beers, two ciders. Beers range from local to regional to national to imports. 70-some seats and 10 places at the bar. 4-oz. flights available: local brews on draft are six for $8; national beers are six for $10; imports are six for $15. Sometimes good specials. We had six generous samplers of Great Lakes beers for $6. Typical pub grub on the menu. Good, friendly atmosphere. Kind of a loud college-alternative sort of place. Highly recommended.
