Decent place with seven beers on tap when I visited. Most were bitters or pale ales of some degree, and there was a hefe, stout and brown ale as well. Nothing was spectacular, but the four cheese pizza was tasty. They could really use an interior decorator as well.

Executed a planned dinner stop on a Saturday evening nice enough to sit on the patio, which sits on the corner of a pedestrian zone in downtown St Paul. The brewpub was fairly empty, but was still the busiest place in an otherwise nearly dead area, an odd impression for us. The bar and restaurant occupy a corner of an oddly retro building, with the restrooms down the well worn halls. The service was attentive enough, but came with an odd paranoia that seemed associated with our place along the wrought iron fenced patio on the oddly sleepy street. The beers we tried from the long list of English-tilted varieties were all OK although none stood out. The food was a mix of average American pub fare to the tasty but grossly mushy quesadilla I struggled through. (Brewery #654)

Visited November 16, 2011.

Cool spot, right in the courtyard between some neat buildings and with a nice patio. This could be a really nice place to hang out, if the beer was better. Really disappointing beer actually. Oh well. Service was alright and the place was comfortable. I left after I went through the sampler flight.

Visited on a recent trip to St. Paul. Big lofty space in an old building. Bar is a little disjointed with a huge column dividing it. Outside seating also available. Arrived during happy hour - $2.50 pints - can’t beat that! Good selection, including a nice IPA and several hand-pumped selections served at cellar temp. All brews I tried were well made and very tasty. Service was good and so was the food. Try the walleye!

They have a few nice beers here and during off peak hours the pints are very cheap (2.50). Not a destination brewpub but worth checking out in the area.

ryanfolty  (205) Bourbon County, Minnesota | November 6, 2011| Updated November 30, 2011
Great location, had about 10 in house beers on tap, no flights on Wild game night which was not cool, food was okay at best, service was good though for how busy it was on game day. She came by often and gave me 3 samplers to make up for the no flight deal, would have increased the service rating more if she was more knowledgeable on the beers.

Beer was surprisingly good, food was not. Basic restaurant atmosphere. Fairly busy. 4 beers on cask, around 8 beers on tap. All in-house. Waitress was friendly and somewhat knowledgeable.

Cool, old atmosphere and great service. We tried eight of their beers and were mostly disappointed. A couple of decent ones at best and the rest were worse. On the upside, it is a cool place downtown to get a beer.

Visited on a Monday afternoon for a quiet pint and some wifi to catch up on email. Located in a cool old building with a great outdoor patio on a pedestrian walkway. The interior seems a bit run down and ragged, and not terribly put together. I sat at the bar, and had a nice chat with the bartender. They had I think 4 beers on cask, which was cool. I did not get food, but what I saw leaving the kitchen looked decent. Cool place, certainly worth a stop.

Visited on 05/31/2009. Helpful, Friendly and knowledgable staff. Immediately brought out water with the sizable sampler offered. Pretzels were hot, fast and tasty. Very open bar with the brewery located behind a glass window visible behind the bar.

Fun place in the heart of St. Paul. Generally around 10 house brews available, with a few on cask. Food is decent, maybe a little pricey. Beers are solid, with usually 1 or 2 better beers in the group (usually the seasonals/specials).
