Itís not a bowling alley. Itís a beer bar with eight lanes or so. Nice, varied selection though, nice to be able to have Hop Wallop on tap at the bowling aley. Decent food as well. Good place to go if you want to be a young urban hipster who wants to appear retro-cool by bowling a few games.

Visited with Pigfoot and MilkmanDan. A nice spot on a busy street, small and cramped dining and bar area up front with a few bowling lanes within view. Beer selection had a few Belgians, some Victory, and a couple of locals I think. Nice place, but not the typical beer bar - and not just because of the bowling alley - the vibe is more like a diner or cafe than a bar, but it works.

3/3/06: Went last night. Had Victory Hop Wallop, Rogue Imp Stout and Surly Furious on tap. Also had Bells Batch 7000 in bottle. Quality selection. Part of town not so nice, but only a couple blocks from nicer. 5/10/05: Cool joint. Was there during the 2005 Twin Cities "I love beer" pubcrawl. Red and black square tiles on the floor. Chalk board featuring their beers, which is always a good sign because they can CHANGE!!! Very nice selection that included Rogue Brutal Bitter and Juniper Ale (Yellow Snow) on tap. They had me there. Also had Mojo IPA and 3 Bells offerings: Oberon, 2 Hearted and Amber. And, of course there is a small bowling alley in back. What more can you ask? Recommended.

Had a lot of fun bowling and drinking. Above average selection with a couple that I was surprised with--Victory Hop Wollop. Never have seen it here in Chicago. Also, Victory Grand Cru was available. Food was way overpriced and vegetarian heavy. Good, clean fun worth a try.

Even though its kind of a dumpy place, it has a certian aura to it. It really is the place to go bowling if you are in the area. This place is just a lot of fun, and they have a suprising beer menu.

It looks like a run down shack from outside and kind of looks like that on the inside. The food was okay, but overpriced. Definitely come for the beer. They have a great selection of things from all over the world. This definitely is NOT the place to come to sample all the Minnesota beers, however. There were only a few on the list. But having a Cantillon while bowling was too much fun.

An old stand-by when in the Uptown area. Good hangover grub and a really good selection of taps and bottles. However, desipite the checkbox, the DO NOT have real ale. Who said that?

This is a funky combo bowling/theatre with a bar and restaurant out front. They always have interesting selections from Bells on tap. I've found both Two Hearted and Batch 6000 on tap. They have a great bottle selection of Bells, Victory and many different belgians including Cantillon. Food is alright and the ambiance non-existent but you go back for the gems on tap.
