For me, this place has the *it* factor. They had many cool and one-off things on tap I hadn’t seen on our beer travels of Minneapolis. It feels a bit more "coasty" than other places in the city. If a helicopter picked this place up and dropped it in Portland or San Fran, they would thrive.

Made the short walk down from Town Hall to finally check this place out. A bit small, but not tiny. Cool beer decor and lots of windows to make the place feel open. Could probably use a fresh coat of paint and certainly needs some dusting of the ceiling fans and the fabric above the duct work. Looks like they haven't been cleaned in years. Cool looking bar and tap tower. Wide selection of beers covering many styles. Locals as well as american and belgian craft beers. You're certain to find something of interest on the beer menu. We settled for the Black Butte XXIV. Friendly service and the prices were on par for the area. Wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to go here again unless something of interest was on tap, but wouldn't be disappointed to visit here again either. Solid place.

Stopped by the other day before heading out of town following a brief stay in the twin cities.
Acadia cafe is a smallish cafe that looks more like a cozy coffee shop and restaurant than a beer bar. The place has a very low key and relaxed atmosphere and vibe, and seems like a great place to hang and shoot the breeze with a beer or three.
On this particular day I think they had around 24 beers on tap (and one cider), broken down into 4 different price points. There was also something like 25 or 30 bottled beers listed on the back of the draft menu. Undertandably, prices for some of the barrel aged beers and imperial stouts were on the high side, though I confess I still thought a 12 ounce glass of backwords bastard and Leine RIS for $8 a bit excessive. Otherwise, the pint of knot stock and 100 yard dash fresh hop were both in the $5 or $6 a glass range. The selection was pretty good here I thought, and it seemed to me that there was a real committment to serving predominantly local/regional beers here (something I always like to see).
Service was OK. The young folks working here were pleasant enough, though this is yet another place were you go up to the bar for a glass of beer (no table service for beer). On the other hand, they were happy to pour a sample of bender and backwoods bastard for my friend without any charge.
Didn't try the food, though from what I could tell, it appeared the emphasis was on basic pub grub.
This was a solid enough place, though for some reason I never really warmed to it. Given the other excellent options around this area (close by to the U of M), not sure how often I'd return to Acadia cafe.
