The place was completely packed with standing room only because of a release of Surly Darkness. It looked like it would be a nice place if it was not busy but tonight there was definitely not enough seeting. The selection of beer was nice but not overly impressive. The service was good for the circumstances. I would like to see what this place is like when it is a bit calmer.

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.

This is an interesting little cafe/bar. I guess they have music at night, but i was there for HH. Nice selection of taps that you need to go up to the counter to get. It is more like a cafe than a bar...a cafe with really good beers.

First visit was a good one. Had a Rachel sandwhich (standard, loads of kraut stood out) and an Anchor Porter. The selection was really incredible, but it was like 1PM and I could only get the Anchor. I will certainly go back.

Stopped by on a Saturday afternoon while visiting the twin cities. There is something for everyone here as my wife wanted an espresso, and so did the rest of our group until they saw all of the taps. Very good and relaxing place, especially for the late afternoon.

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.

Itís an art-school (MCAD is a few blocks away) coffee shop that happens to have a fantasic beer selection. They have live music that ranges from pretty good to damn awful (and I have very broad tastes). Most of the beer is available elsewhere, but they do have a lot of great taps in one place. We usually only go to Acadia for the Surly Furious. Though I havenít eaten there, people say the food is very good.

This is an interesting little place. It has the warehouse style going on, but itís very inviting. The beer list is great. Lots of locals (including new Surly) mixed with a good variety of others, mainly midwest (Bells, Capital, Goose Island). I didnít try any food, though it looked good and priced right. Iíll be stopping back!
