I enjoyed sitting outside with my beer being surrounded by hop-laden vines.

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.

17 beers on tap, most are their own. Food is good, reasonably priced. Small and fairly crowded for 230pm on a Saturday but overall pretty solid place.

I love this place - easily one of the best brewpubs Iíve been to. The atmosphere is an odd mix of nerdy/alternative and Minnesota lumberjack. Iíve caught the servers playing Magic the Gathering when it isnít very busy, yet the majority of customers fall into the flannel wearing, bearded demographic. Cool vibe, and very Minnesotan, in my opinion. They make great beer (Obviously Rosieís and Dark Knight, but the Brunette is amazing too) and recently expanded their tap list. Food is great and really tastes like home cooking (with an edge). Recommend the pizzas, hummus, spicy peanut chicken salad, and the waffle fries (among the best Iíve ever had). If it wasnít such a long drive from St. Paul I would be here every day.

Very simple, humble brewpub. But they serve up great beer. Lots of interesting spin offs. I got to try rosieís unaged old ale, which is very limited according to our server. Knowledgeable helpful staff. Ambitious brewer. Glad I got to visit and try some of their excellent brews.
