Liking this place more every time I go. Lots of good taps at a decent price. Nice sports bar downtown. Although a Cleveland Browns bar? Haha ok whatever. I like to stop in when downtown for shows, otherwise I hate going downtown.

Had been here before, but forgot to rate it. I was able to try some leftover Surly from their Surly Bash - Five, Syx and 12 Darkness. Prices were $6.50 - 7.00 though, so not cheap. Sucks having to pay for parking across the street, but such is life downtown. Service was painfully slow and the place was not busy. Nice patio area out back, but if you canít get service inside; I canít even imagine what it would be like sitting outside.

Good place in the summer as they have a fun tucked away patio. The beer selection is always very good and varied. The prices are a little high but not out of line for most of downtown. The service on the other hand is indifferent at best and surly on occasion. The food is pedestrian.

This place is almost great. A wide tap list with some great micros on line a crowd thatís not to raucous and a fair amount of seating. The food menu is pretty big and the things I tried were OK. The real problem here was the service. The table waitresses are somewhat attentive, but I only ended up at a table because the bar with 4 patrons was apparently to much for the bartender to handle. I waited over 5 minutes and couldnít pry him away from washing a couple glasses to order a beer. I later tried to ask a question about a tap and was snubbed by his response. The prices are pretty high on top of that. Unless I was targeting something specific I wouldnít return.

Cool up stairs with additional small bar (open for special events). Good tap list, even more nice stuff in bottles. Just a nice overall place.

Pretty solid beer spot in downtown Minneapolis - can always count on these guys to have a few goodies on the tap line. And they have the occassional beer event or special tappings, usually Surly-related (Iíve been here for Darkness, Moeís Bender, etc.).

Presumably would have scored higher had the bartender/owner not kicked us out for moving his patio tables prior to going in to order at the bar due to no waitress service outside. Prior trips there have been fine wiht a good beer selection but the attitude of the owner makes this a no-go right from the start.

I used to drop by here at the end of every term when I was in college. It was nice to have a good micro and macro beer selection. As well as a good liquor selection.

Above average downtown bar with a good draft selection. We had great service when we were there, but this was definitely at an off peak time of day. The food smelled great, but was kind of a letdown in the flavor department.

Visited here a few times while on business in Minneapolis. My hotel was right around the corner so it was nice to find a close bar with good beer. I spent a lot of my time enjoying some Surly brews. They also had Ommegang, Victory, Bells, Summit and quite a few others. I did not have any food but the staff was friendly and it seems like a lot of the locals hang out here. Good time.
