This place has reopened and does not seem to have the same solid beer selection. Service was slow and prices were high. Food was so-so for the price. Not really a beer stop anymore. Cool location though.
Not a bad selection but there are certainly better selections in the Twin Cities. Kind of neat atmosphere and solid food. I wouldn’t go out of my way to get here, but it’s definitely worth stopping in when you’re in the downtown area.
Overall this is a solid place. A bit pricy. But the the service and atmosphere is cool and the selection is quite good. Definitely worth coming back to.

I used to go here a lot more when I lived in the area for happy hour. Always a nice selection with interesting taps popping up all the time. Love sitting on the patio looking across the river to downtown. Friendly knowledgeable staff and good fun, love the vibe of the place.
Rating Pracna is a bit hard, as it isn’t your standard bar. The food is quite expensive ("gourmet") as are appetizers, but the beer can run from average to cheap (Happy Hour 9-11, $3 taps) to free (special events via twitter). The beer list is good, but not extensive, although the staff is great. The location is great, right on Main street overlooking the river and donwtown. I would recommend for drinking, and maybe for diner every once and a while.
One of my favorite beer bars. Extremely knowledgable and friendly staff, good beers available + happy hours and beer events. Awesome atmosphere with a view of the river and downtown Mpls. Food is fine - not really bar food.
A very small bar, with a very large patio in the summer, Pracna boasts one of the best late night happy hours. All of their American crafts are only $3 a pint! You can’t ask for anything better than to sit on the Mississippi river and sip $3 crafts. The two ladies who run the bar a super nice, and love to talk beer without being condescending. They’re just fellow beer lovers who do what they can. Well done!
The patio here makes this place a must visit during the summer. Overlooks the river and downtown minneapolis. Beer selection is great, and their happy hour deals are phenomenal. Possibly the friendliest staff I’ve ever encountered. Food is good, but more expensive than many other places. Not really bar food, though. Great place to have a couple of beers before seeing a film, or to take a lady on a date for drinks and a meal of food.

I agree with pretty much everything Tyler said. Nice, classy interior on a good spot overlooking the river, close to downtown and the U. They do have a great happy hour. I have never eaten but the food looks good.
