Just got to the new location - absolutely beautiful. Well done, Alvey! Tons of beer signage & memorabilia, a tasting booth, very nice selection of singles for mix-and-match, LED lit coolers, and a great checkout counter. Huge overall selection. The store is done up in a dark wooden theme, and its stunning. Definitely a beer experience you donít want to miss. You will pay a little more than some other places, but the ambiance and service (all staff seem extremely knowledgable) helps close that gap.

Stopped here while in Minnesota. Very tiny shop. If you farted in there, everyone would die due to the small size of the store. The selection was varied, but average and highly priced. The make-your-own six pack section was full of beers that had me uninterested. They did have a large amount of glassware that was decently priced. I’ve heard such great things about the guy that works there, but I don’t recall him even looking in my general direction the whole time I was there. Eh, not worth the stop.

Although this is by no means the place to buy beer on the cheap, it’s a great store for the budding enthusiast, and those who are looking for rare beers. Not only is it a clean, comfy (though tiny) store, but there is a very nice selection of all sorts of beers. There are quite a few beers missing, but I feel that would be like saying there are some of the artists tracks missing from a single disc "best of" album; you can’t cram it all in there and still have it be the tops. What makes The Four Firkins truly worthwhile is the owner of the shop. He’s a friendly, knowledgable man, who is very willing to help you find just what you’re looking for. I often buy a couple make-your-own six packs for my parties and this is the first place where someone really helped me select a wide variety of quality beers that would easily suit a range of tastes, but offend none. He helped me complete my shopping very quickly, did it gracefully, and told me a little bit about why he w

A very nice store, like the way the beer is organized..... selection leaves something to be desired.... seems to be a little pricey in my opinion. Nice Guy and he definitely knows his beer.

A very nice store. Lots of beery decoration throughout. Maybe the best glassware selection in Minnesota. Very small, but good selection. You can build your own six pack for $10, which isnít a bargain considering what they have to choose from on the singles table. Prices are high, probably the highest I have seen in the Twin Cities. This make some sense considering the location, but this shopper very often buys the beer that is a bargain. Staff or owner, Iím not sure which, was very friendly and offered me fresh Furious from his growler. Good selection, a few things I havenít seen in MN, or havenít seen for a long time. I will be back.

Iíve been in a couple of times now, and have seen the stock already rotating. Heís been getting some very interesting stuff in and it often disappears very quickly (recent shipment of 1809 Berliner Weisse went in a couple of hours). It is a very small store, but well laid out, and Iíve had very good luck in my two visits to get assistance with selecting some unusual beers. The second time I visited, I had a list and the girl who helped me was very nice too bad only half of the items on my list were still in stock! His prices may be a bit on the high side, but some of the more rare stuff heís selling is difficult to get ahold of. Iím very excited by what Iíve seen so far this place has the potential to become a must-see destination for beer drinkers. And itís a lot closer than the Blue Max.**--**Update: finally got a chance to stop into the new store and itís a really nice place. Theyíve got a whole cooler devoted to IPAs! Still, with all the extra space, the selection really hasnít improved greatly. And the prices do seem pretty high (I can get all the Stone beers cheaper elsewhere). Service is good, but the clerks are just a bit haughty/snooty. Donít know that Iíll rush back.

The place is tiny, but well stocked in some things, lacking in others. In all fairness, the things I could not find, like Fantome, are on the way next week. This could easily become one of the best in the Metro as he treats the beer well with safe lighting and cool temperature. There is a fairly average build-your-own 6 pack table, but hard to see the labels as they are all bunched together on a table top. I hate to think of how crowded it will get at tomorrowís grand opening with the local brewers and samples. There is no room for it. Overall, very nice, classy, good selection, but small place.
