Definitely a great place to stop if you are anywhere in the area. The staff here are some of the nicest people I have ever met in my life. Paul G is amazingly cool and extremely down to earth. Their new masterpiece Fifteen is one for the ages and definitely in the very short list of greatest bourbon barrel aged stouts in the world. Iíve always said - this brewery has the most underrated barrel program in the country. With the success of 1414 last year it seems people are finally starting to catch on.

Great brewery. Very affordable to have a couple of beers here. They usually have around 12 different beers on tap, and rotate them seasonally.

Itís local and itís awesome! We went their as a stop after a regional basketball game and we were all very happy we did the research to find the place. They have a great atmosphere in which they had local live music and most had a love of beer. Going back once a year, I think.

A neat little brewery tucked away right off the highway. Went for the 14th anniversary party, which I thought was handled pretty well and was a good experience. Staff was friendly and had a chance a good opportunity to talk to the brewers. Tap selections were largely expanded due to the event. Prices for taps and bottles were reasonable. Plenty of space to spread out. Will definitely return to see what itís like on an average day.

The pub is inside the brewery building which is kind of cool. The selection is decent - itís pretty much their regular brews on tap. A lot of locals appear to hang out during the Friday and Sat. open nights. We felt right at home though.

Nuffield  (108) Roseville, Minnesota | September 1, 2009
I was lucky enough to be driving by (from Appleton to Minnesota) on a Saturday night during their open hours, so I dragged my family in. It was quite busy with locals parked around the brewery. Lively tap room, with a decent ambiance considering itís in an industrial building. Very friendly staff. Good selection of taps though nothing special or rare, and same for the bottles--able to buy their regulars but they donít appear to save up or stockpile specials for sale to visitors. Donít expect rarities in either tap or bottle. (Indeed, their distribution to Minnesota is so good that I can get their better stuff in MN but not at the brewery.) Warning: cash only or local checks, no credit cards.

This place keeps a very short public schedule but it is, after all, a brewery first and foremost. I stop in about once a month to get my growlers filled and Iíve never seen the place less than packed. The wait staff is always attentive and the people (mostly locals) are always willing to talk about their favorite beers. this is the best place for stouts - hands down!!! Iíve tried 5 or 6 of their beers and have never been disappointed.

I stopped here with my girlfriend on a Satutday afternoon and was surprised by the large turnout. The tap room is located right in the brewery. It is a unique atmosphere with that real brewery smell. I had 6 sample beers and then had 8 oz. pour of the coffee stout. The beer is pretty good and the bar tender was knowledgable about the beer. The only dissapointing part was they didínt have any aged barley wines on tap.

June 2012 update. Prices have gone all the way up to $3.50/pint, so itís still an excellent bargain. The big news is the new building just east of the main building, which will be used primarily for expanded storage of its many bourbon-barrel varieties. Be still my beating heart! *** In Fall 2008 an expansion was completed to this very large pole shed in a small industrial park. Along with the expansion came a larger sampling area (longer bar, more bar stools, more tables with stools and, oh my, mood lighting!) and two more taps (now serving from eight taps, with one pouring a stout on nitro). Hours have changed a bit (now open from 4-9 Fridays and 3-9 Saturdays). Crowds seem to get bigger every week. Central Waters beer on tap continues to be the only thing on the menu, but at $3 a pint, how can you complain? Well worth stopping by.
