An upscale restaurant that has a solid beer selection. A large indoor dining area with lots of seating, a bar area up front with a bit of additional seating. Also an adjacent beer garden that offers cheaper food is a nice spot as well. Place is usually pretty hopping but the servers do a good job and know some about the beer. Selection seems to rotate pretty well and usually some decent taps on. Prices are high end but food is very good. Cheaper options available in the beer garden. A nice upscale spot.

Nice upscale vibe. Gotta pay to park. Expensive taps. Website is hopelessly out of date on taps.

A top food destination in Minneapolis with a great beer list. Because it is somewhat a celebrity restaurant, the see-and-be-seen element of foodie culture is definitely present, and a person whose main interest is beer can feel out of place. The service can be good, and it can be surly - the kind one can experience in a place where the waitstaff can be certain theyíre going to make a lot of money regardless. Prices are high, as the place is designed for long, lavish dinners. The food is truly great. Itís worth it.

Itís cool they have a beer garden here, but there the focus is the food. Really cool meat-heavy menu items. Went to both the garden and the restaurant - you should try both as well. The selection is maybe not quite as good as Happy Gnome or Republic, but the food is excellent. Semi-knowledgable staff.

Havenít had a chance to eat here, but they do have a wide variety of tap selections and release events. Friendly staff and a really nice place. Love the beer garden, I need to get here more, and would but I hate downtown.

Sat in their beer gardens. Wow. Amazing. A go to food and beer destination. The tap list is solid and the quality of it is amazing. I will come here every time I come to minneapolis. And so should you.

This is a nice place. Really a restaurant that happens to have 30 beers on tap rather than a beer bar per se. Nice atmosphere, excellent food, big beer garden although it was too cold for any of that, good beer selection (although 20+ pale ales out of 30, could be more varied). Does cocktails and wine too which looked decent.

Nice dog friendly beer garden. I had an Old Rasputin here on a 100 degree day last summer - not a good choice. A few tap takeovers here have been ridiculously well attended with the "chase" beers getting tapped out 15 minutes after the start of the event. High prices, but that doesnít factor into the rating on RateBeer. Parking sucks.

Love the food! Huge beer list! The problem with the beer list is just the standard stuff. Nothing unique and special. Really love the beer garden and the entire ambiance.

Went last night for a late dinner. The parking does kind of suck and the 7 bucks prepares you for the cost inside. The food was amazing, the sausages and grits some of the best I have ever had. I did have 2 desserts that were also outstanding. The beer selection was good but not crazy good.This is a good restaurant that has a good beer selection but this is not a beer bar. I did have a Pappy van Winkle 15 yr that was not on the Bourbon menu.
