The staff is very knowledgeable about beer and they go out of their way to handle the beer well. They have a steady turnover of product. I find fewer beers past their best by date here than anywhere else in the Twin Cities. Unlike some retailers, they avoid stocking antique beer.

Nice selection. Small place. Beers are overpriced but staff is knowledgable. I don't shop here often as there are far better options in Minneapolis. Kind of a newbies bottle shop. Probably wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

They pack a ton of great beer into a small space. I love the look of it - the woodwork is beautiful. Staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. The selection is really great here, with a great variety of midwest/MN beers along with some nice imports. I will definitely go back!

Reviewed this spot a few years ago, now that they've moved into a new location it's only gotten better! They feature really good tasting events, the staff is the most helpful that I've found anywhere. I travel to Minneapolis once or twice a year (from Pennsylvania) and I always make a point to stop in.
BTW, if you make the drive, swing on over to Steel Toe Brewing at the same time for a quick pint and/or a growler fill. It makes for a lovely beer day double banger!

Man, I wish there were more stores like this in my neck of the woods. They were extremely knowledgable and most importantly, EVERY beer was available as a single! They had an incredible selection of beers across the world! Sure, it's a bit spendy, but I could live in this place :)

Outstanding service
I can't say enough about the staff at Four Firkins. I work overseas and often place my orders online & pick them up when I get back to MN. I have sent staff member, Bryan many emails and tasked him with finding/ordering several different beers. Each time Bryan gets back with me quickly letting me know he tracked down my request and has the beer standing by for pick up.

In times of automated email & phone service, it is very refreshing to receive the type of service that Four Firkins provides both online and in person. Alvey & his staff truly understand the concept of providing quality customer service!! First rate store!!

PS: Hope you tracked down the jerk that stole the decorative store front beer barrel!!!
