Finally made my way down to the pig during the RBSG 07 pub crawl. This was the last bar we hit of the night. Since I was driving, I only ordered 1 beer here. Obviously, between the muddy pig and happy gnome (used to have the same owners), you have some of the best selections and highest quality beer in the state. I like the ambience here...kind of like a small town bar. It seems smaller than the Gnome, and the outdoor seating is more limited. The service was so-so, but I suppose that was partly due to the fact that it was busy. I was expecting a little more, but I think I prefer the atmosphere and service at the happy gnome over the muddy pig.

Weird vibe, with luxurious dark wood, leather booths, and pretty dirty otherwise. Bartender was helpful, but said "something to think about" too often. Good beer selection, maybe a little too heavy on past tap takeovers (2/3 of the list was New Belgium / Indeed / Summit) but I found some nice selections. Prices solid. A few rarities. Worth a stop.

Cool spot. Intimate, no-frills one roomed place with a large (60+) tap list. Plenty of interesting stuff was on tap across a range of styles. No real filler. The only problem was that it seemed relatively understaffed. The fact that the Muddy Pig doesnít advertise their beer list online also makes it a less attractive spot than the nearby Happy Gnome. Still, itís worth checking out if youíre in the Twin Cities. This is quietly one of the best bars in the area.

Visited with jackl. Huge central bar, decent atmosphere. Large beer selection included some interesting regional and national stuff. Nice bottle list. Single server was overwhelmed and forgot half our food order. Decent enough stop. It would be helpful if they updated their online beer list.

A nice old school beer bar. One room has a large central bar surrounded by seating with a second room that has additional seating. A few TVs scattered around but not in your face. 50ish taps with a good variety of local and non-local. Service was solid despite being quite busy. Food was good not great and prices were inline with the area. A very good beer bar.

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.

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!
