Tucked away in a small, and a bit rundown strip mall. I have made a couple of visits to the store. As others have stated, it is a small shop. The beer is organized by style which is nice and a different approach. A nice selection of glassware is also offered. Although there may only be a couple of choices offered here than other stores, I think everyone could find something surprising. The prices are a tad higher than other stores but I am willing to spend a few extra dollars to support a store like this.

*My review from Yelp*

Four stars from me -- five for the fact that they had a free beer tasting when I was in (no idea how often that happes), but then three for the beer prices.

Walked in here on a Saturday before a Twins/Tigers game and they were surprisingly packed. Basically, uncomfortably packed.... there was very little room to move around. The building itself looked pretty nice and there was quite a lot of beer to be bought. The workers are really helpful and all of that good stuff, but the prices of singles at Four Firkins are bumped a little too unnecessarily high for my liking. Still, if you're looking for a specific made-in-Minnesota or shipped-to-Minnesota beer, your best chance of finding it is probably here.

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!
