Overall, i love the Firkins. What they do in the community, the variety they offer, the e-mail newsletters, etc.

I've shopped here half a dozen times and have always walked out with something however the problem in the past has been variety - of which, they partially solved by moving to a new larger location off of Hwy 100 in SLP. My issue with the new location IMO carries too many belgians. I'm a big fan of the style however devoting nearly a 1/3 of the store to one particular style seems like overkill a bit. I also dont look to drink belgians in the winter time here, so that section of the store i tend to ignore for half the year. They do have a nice selection of coolers, i think 5 or 6 total and offer a great BYO6P setup. I was also very happy and pleased to see that local Minneapolis area breweries are giving the Four Firkins first choice at their beers. I found all of the Steel Toe bombers at Four Firkins last time i was in, which was great. I'm on their newsletter and really like that they inform the community about new releases and limited quantity brews that they obtain.

I'll always stop in if i'm driving by or in the area (to browse) but i'm not sure i would drive from my house to this location unless it was for something special that was in stock that they could get from a distributor that another store closer to me could not.

I think the pricing is also a tad high compared to others.

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!
