The taproom space at Harriet is very informal and funky, with a biker-hipster sort of vibe. Thereís free music and food trucks on weekend nights, and outdoor seating when itís warm.
The place is so pleasant, and the staff so friendly, that I hate to complain about the beers, but that is really why I donít go very often, despite living nearby. Their brews are very inconsistent, and quite often I think they are far too sweet for the style theyíre shooting for. The brewery focuses on Belgian styles, which is great, but I have had several beers there that I was sure were underattenuated, and one oddly sour brew that the staff couldnít explain -- no brett, possibly contaminated by something but they were serving it anyway.
Iíve left many a half-full glass on the table at Harriet. I hope their consistency and quality improve to match the ambience!

There is always live music, and the atmosphere is fun with hippies and bikers and all kinds of people contributing to it. Beer selection is usually four to five drafts; whatever they are pouring at the time. Their beer can be very solid; there are both canít miss hits and total disasters in their lineup. Harriet has a fun weirdness to it that is unique amongst the taprooms, probably owing to the neighborhood itís in I suppose.

I donít come here very often, every once in awhile if a good band is playing. Beer is whatever Harriet has. The main draw is the music really, Iím not a fan of everything Harriet has to offer.

Harriet is an alright taproom. Not my favorite within the Twin Cities.
They have some decent beers, but the taproom really isnít developed.

Cool atmosphere, 4 beers on tap, good music and great service. Had incredible food delivered from across the street as well. Liked it a lot.

Visited Halloween night 2012. They had a solid band. 6 beers to choose from, 5 of them were not common at all. Cool place, at least on this evening. Beers are too expensive for a tap room at $5, but a good time anyway. There was a food truck outside. They have done well with the space they have and this is a better setup than the other 1970s warehouse breweries.

Iím reviewing the brewery tap room. I visited along with three friends on Friday evening, 4-20-12, from about 7:30 p.m. to about 8:45 p.m. The inside space is very small, but we spent most of our time in a tent just outside into which the tap room opens. The place has an accessible hippie vibe. A pop-rock-reggae band was playing that fit the mood well. The crowd was mixed and older than I would have expected; there were a lot of middle-aged people, some with kids, and there was even one dog. It seems to be more of a neighborhood hangout than a hot spot. Only one beer truly was on tap; I think another three were being poured out of pitchers. I would have liked to have seen more and more interesting offerings available, and Iíd like them all to have been truly on tap. The space is very informal, lacking a true bar. Thereís a small stage for the band, some old couches for lounging, some paintings hanging on the wall, and a bunch of tables and chairs in the adjacent tent. It doesnít feel like a bar the way Fultonís tap room does (I visited Fulton later on the same evening). Prices are $4 for a beer, which is totally reasonable, and there was no cover for the band. The ďbartendersĒ were friendly, and a server came around to our table to bring us a second round. A food truck was on site but I didnít try any of its offerings. Harriet Brewingís tap room is worth stopping by to check out, but I doubt Iíll be a regular despite living within a few miles.

Seems like a fun place. Stopped in here just as they opened - only 2 taps going but they had growler sales. Fun vibe - I understand there is usually music playing but not when I was here.
Re-visited. Awesome taproom, great live music!

These guys are just doing all the right things. Friendly staff, good music, awesome atmosphere and store construction. Delish beer with awesome tasting-room-only riffs. Rauch Fest was kickass, and frankly, I see these guys doing well. They have yet to make a misstep in my eye as of yet.

Made it out for their 1st growler sale last winter and have been back a few times since. Iím happy to say theyíve begun to hit their stride on service and beer. Although the first time by was very slow to process everyoneís growler sale/samples, the last few times Iíve been in the service has been quick and done with a smile. Quality of the beer has been great, however the brewery itself doesnít have much ambiance to speak of. Stripped down warehouse area and thatís about it (but thatís the way it should be, itís not about being the flashiest brewery, itís about making good beer.)
