Major dive - but thatís what I like about the place. Located in the hoppiní NE neighborhood for beer lovers. This place has character but could put some off. Excellent rare beers show up here. Your beer may be served with a gruff and scowl, but thatís OK.

Iíve been to Grumpyís several times with the first time being when Stone just entered the Minnesota market and they had a release party. This is your typical neighborhood corner dive bar, with the notable exception that they have a good beer list. Service has been both good and slow, as there is no table service so you order from the bartender. Tap list isnít huge but what they have is quality. Not a place to go out of your way for, but now that thereís a myriad of beer destinations in that part of town, itís an easy stop and should be included in your Nordeast pub crawl.

Iíve found myself here alot, itís grown on me. Its a small neighborhood dive. The kind of dive you love. Its a small place that sometimes can get too crowded. Great selection and rotation of taps. Seasonals, always Surly, Firkins, crafts beer next to PBR tall boys. Only frozen pizzaís for food, but great beer and usually a great vibe.

Awesome little dive bar in NE Minneapolis. Usually have a few good craft taps on, and I was able to attend a craft beer tasting event (Alaskan Brewing) here.

They have a few good taps, a few Surly beers and others that rotate, but there are not very many of them. Expensive beers, no food. Like the downtown location, one of the worst bathrooms in the Twin Cities. Bartenders have always been cool. Far from a beer destination, but they have a few things to enjoy. Only food is frozen pizza.

Any bar that has Bells Two Hearted on tap constantly is good in my book. This has a definite neighborhood bar feel to it. Small and dark with cheap cans of pabst and hamms always on tap, but this also has some great selection of craft beer. Usually will have a bunch of great midwest beers on tap from places like founders, goose island, and of course surly. Not much in terms of food except for the frozen pizzas they have. Mainly a great place to hang out when in the neighborhood, but it is not a place one would need to make a special trip to.

Grumpyís NE is a great neighborhood bar. It has the feel of a really good dive bar, but the beer selection of a great beer bar. Iím not talking about multiple domestic tall boys, which they do have a great selection of, but that of their craft selection! They are constantly rotating taps which is what I love. Everything I go in there, there is something new on tap. Local favorites and international goodies can be found on tap including all the Surly beers, Urthel Hop-it, and Samichlaus just to name a few. And this is a neighborhood bar! How awesome. The service can be great, but it depends on the night. All in all, this is one of the best neighborhood bars. A nice, clean dive bar, with a kick ass beer selection. Not to forget the KILLER jukebox!
