The number of taps has been steadily multiplying at this place, and the food has been getting better as well. While it used to be a place that I went for the cheapest possible drinks, I would say that it has graduated to being legit beer bar. The happy hour isnít as good as it once was, but is still a great deal. The food is solid, but I probably wouldnít seek this place out for dinner. Stick to the aptly named "beer snacks," which are greasy, cheap and delicious. Not necessarily a "first choice" bar, but a very good second tier establishment.

Local St. Paul place. The food is okay but the beer selection is pretty good. They decorate the walls with old tap heads. The service has always been pretty good. Good place to stop in for a beer or two if you are near by but not necessarily a "must see" place.

Visited November 16, 2011.
We were greeted by a guy that was coming out of the door and spit on the floor. I kind of ignored it (having played baseball for 8 years) but started laughing when the people around reacted. Seriously, who spits in the middle of the floor inside a bar? Luckily the floor was covered with plastic since they were doing some construction work.
We got a table near the entrance and ordered a flight and a pint. Some of the new (to me) beers were ones from less popular breweries but they were things that I cant find in California so I decided to give them a try.
Didnít eat. Service was fairly prompt despite it being pretty busy. Would probably stop in again if in the area.

Stopped in to meet up with an old friend while visiting another. A large bar with kind of a college bar feel to it. Service was good but nothing special. The selection was nice, especially as they had a good number of local taps. Tried a few apps and they were solid while not great. Not a bad place.

Nice local joint in St. Paul. Good tap selection. Food is decent enough. Nothing too fantastic. Prices are decent as well. Definitely not a destination, but a solid place for good beer

This is a very solid place for beer. Food is o.k. (Iíve only ever had appetizers, though.) The happy hour prices make this quite good, and Iím always able to find a) good beers, and b) local beers. The interior is a classic midwestern boozer, with a large study body clientele, but theyíre usually Macalester or St. Thomas students, so theyíre harmless. Donít go out of your way to get to this bar, but itís a good place to go if youíre staying in the area.

Had a nice large selection of beers for reasonable prices. Had a quick stay because we were there for Schadenfreude which ran out before we got there. But I would definitely head back again to grab a couple beers.

Great little neighborhood bar that I find myself at frequently. It can be crowded by the bar, but usually you can find a seat somewhere at any given time. Beer selection is really good, and there is always something good on. Food is spotty, but I wouldnít say it is any worse than okay. Service is excellent with some of the friendliest bartenders and servers Iíve met. Great place to grab a couple of lunch beers.

Great little bar/restaurant in St. Paul, across from Macalester College. Iíve never eaten here, but the beer selection is great and the prices are very reasonable. "Neighborhood bar" vibe.

Been here a few times and it is another nice bar in St. Paul. Usually around 40 taps with local favorites like Surly, Summit, Flat Earth and Lift Bridge, and also has some of the usual suspects like Stone, Bells and Founders. Food is pretty decent, though I was a little disappointed that the "extras" such as lettuce, tomato, and onions are an additional cost to the burgers. Would have been nice to be notified of that by the waitress before I ordered almost everything on mine and doubled the price, hahaha.
