The only place in Central MN with Surly Syx on tap and for only $6 per glass. Good food and a cool atmosphere. Live music and the local art scene definitely promoted here. Fun little joint for some food and a great beer list (for this area at least)

I go here often when I visit my parents. One of the only places in St. Cloud guaranteed to have Surly on tap. They also have a few other good picks on tap like Deschute’s, Bell’s and Stone. They still have some crap on tap, but its St. Cloud, so my expectations are always pretty low.
The food is awesome and the service is pretty good.
The two big downsides are that A) its pretty small and B) its one of the only decent places in St. Cloud and is tough to get a table on the weekends.

This isn’t a beer bar, it’s just a good bar with Surly on tap, and doesn’t pull in the college students in a college town. A lot to be said for that. Great food, pizza. Bartenders are awesome. They’re not beer geeks, but they’ll give you a Furious and are just all-around awesome guys.
Never gets too noisy because they keep the music lower so you can actually talk. Good live shows too. I love this place for what it is.
