Set in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis, you would expect this to cater to the upscale and trendy. Youíd be right. The appearance is more industrial than anything else. Servers are attentive, but lack knowledge of the beer they serve. Selection isnít bad; it will usually be around 6 on tap at any given time. Havenít tried the food yet. Not a bad place, but certainly not one Iíd return to for a casual pint.

A smallish brewpub with a central bar surrounded by seating and a small patio beside the building. Service was a bit slow during a Sunday afternoon and wasnít particularly beer oriented. 8 beers on with samplers available. Food was decent and prices werenít too bad. Pretty run of the mill brewpub.

Just across the street from Muddy Waters and this was stop two on Uptown tour. Probably had the worst beer selection of the night, but service was easily the best. The bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable about the beers. Different from BLB and MW, this place did not seem to be a hipster hangout. Heard this place was a Packer bar for the Cheese Heads out there.

Beer is hit or miss here but since the craft beer boom theyíve stepped up their game. I still love the sky pilot. Food is average fare but done well. Go during the day as it gets crazy at night.

Visited November 2011.
Visited late in the evening so most everything else was closed but it looked like an outdoor mall. The brewery had a sign outside advertising that they were showing Spinal Tap on 11/11/11 (missed it, damn).
I swear, every single beer I had was a lager, even the imperial stout. Really weird but kind of neat at the same time. I sat at the island in the middle of the restaurant and drank my flight but didnt talk to the service much. The guy didnt know much about the beer nor was he all that interested in talking. I think the most interesting part of our (lack of) conversation was the mention of a real sake brewer in Minneapolis somewhere.
Didnt eat much, just a pretzel.
I dont see much need to go back here besides for a quick flight for some new beers, though I gladly would have watched Spinal Tap there.

A restaurant with a brewery that had 6 of their own brews (one was out). Didn't order any food and beer was ok. Service was very laid back to be kind.

Located in the LynLake neighborhood of Minneapolis. Small selection of house brewed beer, the beer is very middle of the road. The menu is filled with bar food and the service is good.

I got brought the wrong beer here by the server who then argued with me that the pale ale in front of me was a stout... Cool seeing the fermentors with the code names for the future brews on the chalkboards.

Bigger brewpub, quiet when we were there. Had their own beer on tap, thatís it. The beer was average at best. Good service.

Not a bad little brewpub, near moto-i, which I highly recommend. This place is worth a stop, but I didnít find any beer that was very noteworthy.

The only brewpub located in what has become one of the two craft beer hotbeds in the Twin Cities. Located in the heart of the Lyn-Lake district of Uptown, the following other establishments are located within walking distance: Muddy Waters, Lyndale Taphouse, Bulldog, Bryant Lake Bowl, moto-i. I believe their beer is underrated, although will admit some of their beers on occasion will be watered down and/or otherwise lackluster. They open up a little patio in the alley next to the pub where you can play a game of bags with friends. Worth a stop on your Uptown pub crawl.
