Tiny little place in a very non-brewpubby location. Like the hop vines growing outside. Places is very small, so go in odd times if you want to sit down. Wait staff is friendly and have had decent food on my visits there. Beer has wandered between excellent to average, would say consistency may be an issue? The Little Barley Bitter, when on, is a wonderful small beer, and Iím a big Wild Brunette fan. Certainly worth a visit if youíre on the north side of the cities.

This has got be my favorite brew pub, of all the ones Iíve been too and rated. Funky, small, and comfortable. The bartend was friendly and made a great conversationalist. The earthy approach of the bar and the use of proper glassware on the most amazing brews were most appreciated. BUT! There was no Dark Knight! I did get Alfreds Porter, but missed the coveted DK. Next time I guess...

Iíve visited here a few times, and it always surprises me that such a quality brewer is located in such a small, lackluster place. My first time here (Nov 2004) I picked up a growler of Dark Knight and sampled the Rosieís Ale. Both were quality, but I have no idea why one would charge roughly 75 bucks for one and 90 something for the other in a growler. Why the expense? FOOD UPDATE: Veggie burger was very good, and the waffle fries were solid. Other food items on the table looked good as well.

Small in size to focus the pub dwellers focus on the great beer and excelent food. Very warming and intimate; whether your focus is on your date, your burger, your shoes, and hopefully your beer. Food is available for the serious dinner consumer, or the" lets grab a beer and a (fill in the blank)" drinker. Always a good selection of guest beers and Barley John brews.

I thought this place was a great way to waste away a Saturday afternoon. John was there and allowed a special sample of an extra special beer. It wasnít finished brewing yet but was PHENOMINAL. OMFG! Rosies ale even when not "complete" kicks ass! The bartender was nice.

Great place highly recoomended. Great service and great beer. Several taps of their own and guests. The owner took the time to stop and talk to us and even give us some not quite finished rosies ale from the distiller. Great place.

They make some of the best beer in Minnesota, so as long as there is a place to serve it, why would you not go there? Good selection of tap brews and nice service. The place is small, but I went there late on a weeknight and was one of the few people there, so I had no trouble finding a table.

Very homey inside the small brewpub. Selection is very small but high quality. Besides their house beers I have also seen quality imported taps, including Tripel Karmeliet. No complaints about the service. Only drawback is the price. If you want a house beer plan on paying $8+ for a small cordial of their finer beers.

Through this website, I decided to venture up to New Brighton while visiting Minneapolis. What the place lacks in outward appearance, the beer and the knowledgeable service more than made up for. Didnít try the food. Had the sampler and was impressed immediately with the obvious quality of the work. Wow. Rosieís and Dark Knight blew me away. Young woman waited on me and knew everything there was to know about all the beers offered. If you like beer and I know you do, this is a great place to go and seek out.

Damn, I canít believe I havenít rated this before! Outstanding beer selection, even if youíre not drinking their own beer. They seem to have Rosieís and Dark Knight on tap at all times now. The food is terrific, although a bit pricey. The building looks like a wreck from the outside, but itís quite cozy inside. Must stop!
