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.

Another stop on my visit to Minneapolis. Look up hispter bar in the dictionary and there should be a picture of this place. A real college hang-out if ever one existed. The beer selection was very good with a nice variety of local and regional craft with a few imports thrown in for good measure. I didn't try the food but the ordering process to acquire food looked confusing. I thought the place was on average for pricing compared to the other places I stopped in Minneapolis. They offer live music and do not allow the acts playing to perfomr and cover songs. In fact, they display that prominantly across the television screens. A unique place to say the least.

Yes, it actually a cafe, and the run of taps seem a little out of place here, but I couldn't complain. The ordering process was at a counter, no waitresses (which seemed a little odd). Selection was very good. Maredsous, two Surly's, Youngs Double Chocolate, Maredsous, Summit Oatmeal Stout, Rush River, Bell's Two Hearted, and several more. We didn't try the food, but it looked like cafe food, sandwishes etc.. We had a couple pints of Surly Furious, and they were in the $5 range, which is a little high, but not unreasonable, this place is almost designed as a "beer with your lunch" than a place to go drink for a few rounds.

This was stop 3 of the Cedar Avenue pub excursion. This was definitely the highlight. The atmosphere was actually less noteworthy than both the Triple Rock and the Nomad. The Acadia is a little more sterile or lacking in character in my opinion. What it lacks in atmosphere it certainly makes up for in service, selection and overall quality.
The quality of the beers was very good. They had quite a few craft beers to choose from.
The service was excellent as there were two servers and they were able to tell us first hand about virtually every beer on tap. One was more well versed than the other, but you could tell that both loved beer. They didn't just know the beers but were also familiar with the brewers.
Selection was the best of the three bars on Cedar Avenue. They had a much more extensive tap lineup. I was very well pleased as there were many beers I hadn't tried and I was disappointed I had to move on to the next location which was going to be a wine bar. Great place and I will be going back.

Nice place. It has a stamped tin ceiling, friendly, knowledgable, helpful staff. Wood bar, terrazo floor, 24 taps with one root beer. Lots of Belgians, micros, and regional beers. Food and brewerian art. Spiral ceiling ductwork. No matched glassware. Food is available, but we didn't try it. Only there for a Surly draft. Has a full service bar with whiskey, wine, licquer, other liquors. Nice windows, a little stage with occassional live music.Located on the corner near another good beer bar, the Nomad.

Stopped by for lunch and a couple of pints. Ordered the new Flat Earth Curly Tail and was served FE Belgian Pale Ale. I like that beer so I drank it anyway. There has to be something on tap to satisfy any beer lover. A large bottle selection is also available. The food menu is nothing spectacular but some interesting selections and the food was good but also nothing spectacular. Prices seem on par for the area if not a little cheaper.
The atmosphere is not as refined as the establishments a couple of blocks to the north but should not surprise anyone considering the neighborhood. Breakfast was recommended to me so if I find myself in the area in the morning I will be sure to stop back.

Our friends took us here on a Friday night when we visited Minneapolis. Didn't try the food, although all the sandwiches we saw looked appetizing.
Cozy little corner place with a performance space attached to it. There was a play being performed while we sat and drank. Also offers plenty of local music performances.
Terrific selection of beer: over a dozen different styles on tap, plus that many bottled. Their range of beers is commendable, too: everything from local brews (Summit, Surly) to American favorites (Bell's, Shiner, Sierra Nevada) to imports (Newcastle, Young's, Boddington's). I loved the look of all of their taps lined up behind the bar.
Wish we lived in Minneapolis so we could try the place more often!

This was an exceptional stop for me, while visiting the Minneapolis area. Some friends initially stopped down the street and I made a solo trip down to check this out, as fellow BA'ers had listed this as a must stop. I was very glad that they did and my friends caught up later and wished that they had just come with me. The staff was really laid back and incredibly friendly and knowledgable. This is the type of place where I could twist away an bitterly cold afternoon. They just need to fix the lock on the restroom ;-)

Coffee shop turned dank beer bar, Acadia gets a big thumbs up from me. Why can't there be more places like this around? Acadia is pretty small in the cafe part, but there is elbow room, it's comfortable, and easy to get a seat; a relaxing place. It's basically like a regular little cafe/coffee shop, but behind that counter lies so much beer goodness. They have about 15-20 taps of all kinds of stuff, from a couple Belgian's to some great IPAs to good pilsners, porters, stouts and what have yous. The local and regional brews are well represented and rotate quite a bit with whats new. The food wont knock your socks off but the recipes are original and pretty high quality, I eat there about every week on one of my days off of work. I recomend the GLBT (Guac, lettuce, bacon, and tomato). Service is pretty decent, sometimes you run into someone who is having a bad day, but everyone is usually pretty down to earth and friendly, and they know what you are asking from and which glass to serve it in.

Even without the twenty-four taps of craft beer, Acadia Cafe is a great place. The coffee-fanatic in my family really loves their coffee and their breakfasts and sandwiches are top-notch. Everything seems to be very fresh and quite tasty. My favorite is probably the chipotle turkey. Fear not vegetarians... there are some options for you and at least one vegan sandwich. In addition to the food, coffee and beer, the place has a music hall attached. The acts seem to cover a wide gamut, from oddball to alt country. Lest we forget... Acadia Cafe has a great selection of beer, with 24 taps and no crap. Acadia is really good about having a variety of great Minnesota craft offerings on tap as well as other beers from around the US, England, Germany, Belgium, etc.
