Iíve been here a bunch of times with northropfrye. I always enjoy my experience and the beer selection is great for Grand Forks. All their burgers are fantastic, though they donít have an extensive menu but theyíve perfected the burger, which goes great with the beers.

Big things come in small packages in this case. Tiny bar, tonnes of taps, lots of good stuff too. By the looks of their website, and my experience, they are updating their brew selection on a regular basis. Really good greasy diner burgers too. Great lunch or late night beer and burger joint.

Stopped in during my latest Grand Forks beer run. Very small place, with a very respectable draft selection. Only 3 or 4 crap.pale lagers out of the 30-40 taps they had on. Nice, if eclectic, selection, with a few one offs (Teton Grand Saison Apricot), and some nice surprises. Service was prompt, friendly, and surprisingly knowledgeable. Food was a bit of a letdown. Burgers were good, but the fries were awful. Maybe next time Iíll get my burger with chips instead.

Definitely the best place for beer in Grand Forks. They have a lot of decent stuff on tap. Nothing ultra-rare, but definitely good stuff. Nice service, and decent burger-type food.

Stopped by a couple of times during a US shopping weekend. The place was packed on both Friday night and even mid afternoon on Saturday. The place had a fairly goood selection of US micros on draft (especially when you consider how isolated Grand Forks is) with only a couple of crappy macros taking up tap space. The food ok. I would have expected the burgers and fries to be better, simply because itís the ONLY thing they make here. The service was always friendly and prompt. I think the biggest issue is the lack of seating. If the building was a bit bigger and they had a few more tables, it would make for a far more comfortable experience. Overall, this is definitely the "go-to" beer spot in Grand Forks... just make sure you come during off peak hours if you want to be seated right away.
