The smallest brewpub Iíve visited. Met JK there and robertsreality who was bartending that night. The service from Rob was great; from the waitress so-so. She seemed like she was busy even though I went on a Monday night and there werenít that many people there. However, she was nice and got us a table to sit at. Thouroghly enjoyed the Dark Knight and DK Returns which were on tap. The only other brewpub beer they had was the bitter, which was a little disappointing. However, they did have Triple Karmeliet and some other non Barley John brews which kind of made up for it.
The only other complaint I have is that a growler of DK goes for $65!!?? That is INSANE. Is there anyone who would pay that much for a growler?

Very nice place located just north of Minneapolis; it is a little small but has a small bar area and a dining area; the food is very good, most of the beer on tap is their own but they have a few guest taps as well; beer is brewed on site; service was fast and friendly; definitely worth stopping in if you are close.

A cozy brewpub outside of Minneapolis. The interior is quite small, just a few tables. There is a tiny bar (perhaps 6 seats) that no one was sitting at. There is more outdoor seating (not sure if this is enclosed during the winter months...Iíd think so, given that the interior can probably only seat 20 people tops). Definitely a sit-down kind of place. The beers, however, were disappointing. There were 8-9 on tap (4 regulars, the rest seasonals). I tried the TarLactose, Wild Brunette, and OPP. The OPP was decent, but the others were difficult to drink. The food was tasty - I had a curry coconut squash soup and chicken skewers with peanut sauce and rice. Overall, I was disappointed with the beer. I might come back, just to see if they do other styles well, but it was my least favorite of the Minneapolis stops.

This place is as local as it gets. The food was OK, and I enjoyed my beer selection. There were other beers I would have liked to have tried, but we werenít there for a session. They have nice single malt scotch. This is a nice place to have as your local.

Visited on a Saturday night. Nice brewpub that had around 12 beers on tap and had a full food menu. Was a neat brewpub, but I wasnít thoroughly impressed with the beer.

It doesnít look like much from the outside but itís very cozy and intimate inside. They have 9 of their own on tap as well as 6 guest taps. The beers I sampled were solid but they didnít blow me away which kind of sums my experience. There wasnít anything off about the place. It just wasnít reeking of awesomeness.

Visited November, 2011.
The first thing I noticed was that there people sitting outside in the cold wind around a fire pit while the rest of the happy drunks were inside. More power to them, but I wasnít about to join. Inside was warmer and more comfortable. The table had a bunch of small holes drilled in it. I learned how to play cribbage, or at least I think I did.
Lots of beers to pick from and they do flights in 6oz glasses. Some were good, some were alright. Service was friendly and the place is enjoyable.
Looking forward to stopping in again for RBSG in a month.

Super cute little place! Very homey and local feel for sure. 10 of their own beers on tap plus 6 guest taps - the 2 of their own beers have been very good so far. Menu is some entrees, pizza which is very good and burgers, homemade hummus app was very good too. Service is good, prices are good. Definitely a place I will be back to!

Checked this place out last fall when Dark Knight Returns was around. I was tempted, but didnít go for the roughly $80 growler fill. Sampled a bunch. Good food. Tiny space - but lots of character.
