Went there in Summer 2014. Place felt like it was brand spanking new. Not many people in. Very beautiful brewpub, though. Relatively few beers (yet), so the selection was limited. Very, very friendly service. Food was great, some of the best I’ve had during my trip. Kind of expensive, though. Overall, not bad, but it felt like there was room for improvement.

After hearing less than glowing reviews about their beer, (but good things about the food)I was slow to get over there for a visit. I’m glad I decided to form my own opinion. Rumors of less than stellar beer were greatly exaggerated, or perhaps they’ve just improved their beer. I had the Amarillo Dry Hopped IIPA and the Dunkelweizen, which both were excellent. The interior is huge, really two bars in one. They will be well set up to handle large Vikings game day crowds starting in 2016. The selection currently is limited to about 6-7 offerings but based on the sheer number of different beers they already have on Ratebeer, they are frequently changing. Not sure I understand the low value ratings unless it’s referring to the food. $5 a pint (at least during HH) is lower than average for downtown Mnpls.

This is a nice, bright, airy space, with a patio in the back that overlooks a parking lot and heavily trafficked streets. The service was very pleasant, but not very well informed (the bartender didn’t know what brettanomyces is). Tried a sampling of all 6 of the beers they had on offer. Overall they were merely OK. The IPA was severely unbalanced, the bitter nearly tasteless, the red ale had a slightly metallic aftertaste. The Belgian golden was probably the best, with nice flavors of honey and herbs. My general sense is that their reach exceeds their grasp -- the styles they’re brewing are not easy styles. Hopefully they’ll improve.

Really nice clean space on Washington, bright windows. Beers are ok, maybe they’ll get better. Until then I’ll stick to Town Hall when in the area.

Dayblock seems to be aiming for the quiet excellence of a brewpub-restaurant such as Barley John’s. The food is partway there, and one could do much worse than the Caesar salad and one of the safer-side pizzas here. The beer is unremarkable. Hopefully it will serve a purpose when the new stadium is completed, but for right now, no beer enthusiast has cause to visit.

Nice place overall. Food was excellent. Agree with other reviewers that beers are a bit north of average, but really expensive. Trivia Monday night was a plus.

Visited on a Sunday. I love all the wood, very friendly and great service. Pizza was great. Beer was expensive and average. Pints are $6 ($4 on Sundays). Flights are $2/pour.

A nice place on Washington Avenue, in the former plumbing store I believe. A bright place late in the afternoon from many windows. Walking distance to Town Hall, Republic, and in a few years, the new stadium. Very good pizza, and they have the glass rinse device at the bar. Entirely unimpressive pedestrian beers, found at every brewpub in America, served at unreasonably high prices based on the quality and the proximity to other breweries including Dangerous Man, Town Hall, and even Fulton, at $6 for a pint. They also want six for a snifter of a 5.7 coffee porter, hardly a rare style. These prices, at this level of quality makes it doubtful I will be back. Service was friendly.

Stumbled upon this place while looking for somewhere to eat dinner and was glad I did. Excellent pizza and some decent house made brews.

New spot in downtown Minneapolis. Cool open room chill vibe - hipster industrial. Awesome pizza. Flights of beers - 6 for $12. Beer is just okay. Re-rate: beers are getting better.
