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.

I expected my score to be better than a 70, but where Steel Toe gets dinged is in selection. There were only 5 beers on tap, which isnít all that bad for a local taproom, but then again, only 5. The taproom is fairly small, with limited bar stool and rail seating along the perimeter. Still itís nice, with cool lighting and a flat screen TV behind the bar. You canít beat the prices, at $4 and $4.50 per pint for some of the best beer brewed in Minnesota. Was there on a Wednesday and was surprised that it went from full to fairly sparse by 6:30. Once they expand their selection and build their reputation, this place is going to be jammed. They are in dire need of an outdoor patio.

Visited the tasting room on a Saturday evening. The small taproom was mostly full, but there were a couple of seats at the bar. I was a little letdown with the selection when I visited. There were 4 beers on tap, and all of those were available in liquor stores around the metro. I was told that they usually have 1-2 more beers available and will have some special beers. I will have to come back and try again in the future. On a positive note, they offered a sampler tray of their 4 beers and all were quite good, so I canít complain.
