This is an interesting little place. It has the warehouse style going on, but itís very inviting. The beer list is great. Lots of locals (including new Surly) mixed with a good variety of others, mainly midwest (Bells, Capital, Goose Island). I didnít try any food, though it looked good and priced right. Iíll be stopping back!

Visited August 15, 2013.
Walked over here with kbutler and CLevar after the meet and greet for RBSG. There wasnít anything overly noteworthy about the place, just a quiet bar with a fair amount of taps and some stuff on the walls. The place was fairly empty actually. We must have gotten there just before the band because others who went a half hour later said it was busy and there was a band playing loudly. All I know is that I got a beer called Lucid Silo (a saison) and tried a sip of CLevarís Surly Cynic with nectarine wood (or something like that). Over all the beer selection was pretty good. Service was friendly enough but I didnít really interact with the bartender much. Didnít eat either.

For me, this place has the *it* factor. They had many cool and one-off things on tap I hadnít 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.

Finally stopped in here after years of living in MSP. Cool place with lots of draft choices. I never make it down this way because I always seem to end up at Town Hall but this is a good beer spot and shouldnít be overlooked. Didnít try any food but will be back.

Bar in the West Bank area. 28 taps, 37 bottled beers, two ciders. Beers range from local to regional to national to imports. 70-some seats and 10 places at the bar. 4-oz. flights available: local brews on draft are six for $8; national beers are six for $10; imports are six for $15. Sometimes good specials. We had six generous samplers of Great Lakes beers for $6. Typical pub grub on the menu. Good, friendly atmosphere. Kind of a loud college-alternative sort of place. Highly recommended.

Quite a small place on the weekend with a little stage for live music. They had quite a large tap list and I was able to try the Delirium, which was $10. They also had ST Creme Brulee on tap, I would like to come back to try a few other beers.

Stopped here 5/9/12 for dinner. It seemed like a slow night but sitting at the bar I had great service. The atmosphere was dark and comfortable for a pub, it probably get crowded in a good way on the weekends. The tap selection is constantly changing from week to week but Iím told they try to focus on having many local beers and minimum two Surly taps. Most of the beers were mid range drinkers, nothing too rare or extreme. The Fish and Chips were good and the fresh cut fries were delicious.

This is a smaller corner bar, live music at times. Good beer selection ranging in areas. I was impressed to walk in the other night and see Odell Bourbon Barrel Stout on tap. Nice place, Iíd gladly stop by again.

A bit dive-bar feel to this place, but nicely laid back and approachable. The draft list was really nice - several Surly options, St. Bernardus, Duvel. The burgers were pretty good, not amazing but pretty good. This place was not quite as busy, so it was a little easier to hear yourself talk compared to other busy places in the area. This place is definitely worth a stop.

Great beer selection. Friendly staff. Love their nachos. Often have live music. Love their beer and beast specialties. They frequently have beer events that are fun to go to. Have had several cask beers there. Staff is very knowledgeable about the products both food and beverage.
