The out-of-the-way location looks a little intimidating for visitors to the twin cities, but itís actually only a $10 Uber fare from downtown. The place is pretty utilitarian, cramped. I visited at dinner time on a Saturday and found the place to be very busy. Loads of people were rolling through just to pick up growlers. I sat at the bar and worked my way through a reasonably-priced flight. My bartender was pretty chill, and provided free pours of everything that wasnít included in the flight, so points for service. Steel Toeís beers are pretty solid across the board. At best, theyíre touching world class. I especially enjoyed their hoppy stuff. Overall, definitely worth a detour. Iíll be back.

A smaller tap room with a bar on one side surrounded by a wall bar on the other side to offer maximum seating. A very industrial feel. Bartender was efficient despite being extremely busy and knew a lot about the beers. Prices are nice and you can grab a sampler as well if you are looking to try a few things. A solid tap room.

Thursday afternoon in August ... I donít think the location of this place is ideal, and they could do a much better job with curb appeal. But all of the beers we tried here were good to great, and that outscores the ambiance. (Brewery #645)

Steel Toe is in my opinion the classiest, most respect worthy brewery operating in the twin cities. Their taproom is a utilitarian one, offering fairly priced pours of whatever they are brewing at the time, which is most always limited to about five beers. As such it isnít a destination in its own right, but simply a place where you can enjoy a fresh tap beer that will likely be scarcely available around town, while grabbing some brewery only bottles or fresh growlers.

This was my 2nd stop (following Surly) on a 6 brewery tour of MSP a few weeks ago. Overall I enjoyed my vist here quite a lot. In fact of all the local beers I tried in my 3 day tour...Steel Toeís Size 7 IPA was my favorite year round non-seasonal offering. While there I also got to try their Provider Ale, Dissent Dark Ale, and Rainmaker Double Red Ale all of which I enjoyed. The real high point though was getting to kill the keg of their limited Size 11 Triple IPA. Now that was a special beer! I also got to share some pizza with some locals that included one of the assistant brewers from Summit Brewing. All in all I had a very good experience at Steel Toe and would highly recommend a visit here in spite of the relatively small number of selections (quality over quanity is always a good motto!). By the way...in spite of mostly good reviews it seems that most of the reviewers of MSP area craft brweries score much lower than we do back east...not a critcism by any means...just an observation.

Kind of out of the way, but these guys make some pretty cool beer. Small crowded and noisy taproom and not tonnes on tap like some brewpubs (or even compared to Surly taproom) but itís definitely worth a stop in the Twin Cities.

Nice lively place. They only have a couple of beers on tap. But they are decent. Worth a stop.

Stop during RBSG. Probably my least favorite stop on the tour. The tasting room is super small and they were already decently busy before the 20-or-so people from our bus all packed in. Service was a bit lacking. Beer was good, but I probably wouldnít stop back .

Visited August 16, 2013 as part of RBSG.

I was worried that we would have to skip this one due to time constraints and I was looking forward to visiting all breweries offered but we did get here after all. Actually we only spent about 45 minutes here but thatís OK as they were busy and we had places to go. The tasting room is small and surrounds the bar. The 20 of us took up most of the room. There was one bartender helping our line and one helping the patrons at the bar so I sat at the bar, removed my name tag, and got service much quicker. They were very nice people too, giving us a free taste when we were torn on which beer to order. There was a keg of the barrel aged Scotch ale on tap when we arrived which kicked and was replaced with the regular Scotch ale. Interesting beer, nice people, but the tasting room seemed a bit out of the way. Not sure how often Iíd return.
