The Pig has nice ambiance, a litte patio, and this great sausage kraut melt appitizer that is quite good. Did I mention that they have about 25 great taps that continually rotate. this is a great place for a beer.

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.

Glad I did not rate this the first few times
that I was there as it was when smoking was still allowed. Great little place with a nice selection of brews. The owners are beer guys and keep the tap selection and bottle selection top notch.

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.

Nice little place. We were the only ones there on a Thursday afternoon, so that might have been why the service was good, but we got to sample a lot of their beers which was cool. I had the pulled pork bbq which was pretty good.

Nice selection of beers, probably a good 25 things from all over the map. They take care of their tap lines here--I had the best pints of Two-Hearted Ale Iíve ever had in my entire life. Wondrously crisp, perfectly fresh. The Cuban sandwich I had was OK, but nothing to write Havana about. Was there in the middle of the afternoon, so Iím not sure how busy it gets. Still, nice place and all.

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.

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.
