Great St. Paul bar - loads of great beers available. Service can be a little slow, and I think the staff at the Happy Gnome is generally a little more knowledgable, but the Pig is definitely on my short list of great places to go in the Twin Cities.

Awesome place in St. Paul to try a wide variety of beers. A few rare ones on tap. I also had dinner (a BBQ pork sandwich) and it was excellent. Must see beer bar if youíre visiting the Twin Cities.

Very expensive, but very high quality selection. There were a few rare beers I had never heard of, and also Bellís Cherry Ale on tap for the high price of $6 for the pint. Service was rude. /////////// I wonít erase my previous comments yet but will update. Service has been fine generally. Fine selection, but still above average prices. Very small, cramped bar area. I wouldnít come here more than 4 people because there is hardly any seating at the bar and there is no room to stand at all, so you need to plan on getting a table. Good scotch selection. A very liberal crowd in a very liberal area of a very liberal city. I have met the owner several times and he has always been friendly.

Really lovely bar with comfy old-timey ambiance and very attentive service during the (admittedly slow) couple of hours we were there. Did not try food as we had just eaten at the similar-quality Happy Gnome before arriving, but the beer selection was quality -- a quite nice Victory Prima Pils was in good shape -- and the single malt selection was similarly solid. Not spectacular if youíre a well-travelled beergeek but a very nice place to just chill out and soak up the vibe.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon. Pretty nice beer selection, although nothing really stood out on my first visit. Food was average, but nothing special. Weird dance music was playing in the bar area, which didnít really seem to match the bar atmosphere. I would have liked to have come back another time after my initial visit, because I wasnít especially impressed.

What a find! I had heard from other Ratebeerians that the Muddy Pig had a nice selection of tap beer and they were right. The patio is very small (more like a side yard), but they have made the most of the space. In the photo, it is the area behind the blue fence. There are 3-4 tables with umbrellas. Since it is right next to the building with a fairly high fence surrounding it, it probably only gets sunlight when the sun is directly overhead. Among the on tap selections were Mojo IPA (Rockies IPA), a few Bells offerings like the Best Brown, Wittekerke, and others. The place has nice ambiance and is cozy. A must visit for any self-respecting beer aficianado living in the Twin Cities or visiting St. Paul.

Great St. Paul bar in a great area of town. Only downfall is the service which can be slow due to many patrons and are rushed when they come over so donít have much time to talk about the beers.

Looks like the dining room of wealthy relatives crossed with a real neighborhood sports bar. It seems like their selection is more eclectic than the Happy Gnome, while the food is not quite as good and also not quite as pricey. If I want to watch the game, this is where I usually end up.

Very great beer place! About 50 or so high quality taps - micros to good imports. Very reasonably priced. Had the Cuban sandwich which was outstanding. Great neighborhood bar kind of feel. Service is very good. Tough call between this and the Happy Gnome just down the street. Hit both if you can!
