Not bad for an airport bar/ brewpub, but in absolute terms it leaves a bit to be desired. For one thing, the service/ server was a bit slow and uninterested - and it really wasnít that busy. They had five house beers available. Unfortunately they stopped doing flights (the server tells me) so I ended up trying two beers: the kolsch and the IPA. I thought the kolsch was decent but the IPA was somewhat mediocre. The prices are somewhat high given the beer quality ($6.99 per pint plus tax) but I guess pretty average for airport bars. I guess your options for beer are limited when youíre in the airport; this place is decent for a few ticks. If you have a lot of time in MSP, I would also highly recommend the bar Mimosa, which has a much better beer range than Rock Bottom.

4 Rock Bottom beers on tap, none of them dark. My waitress said I could get a flight of all 4, so I ordered one. She brought me 6 and couldnít tell me which was which. She said it was only her 2nd day. OK. She got another waitress. The 2nd waitress could tell from looking at them what they were. Except she said two were the same. I pointed that out, and she said one was something else. OK. Later, I asked the bartender where the Hazed & Infused came from, since it didnít say on the menu. He said from Rock Bottom. I looked at the tap handle, and it said Boulder Beer. He said Boulder Beer was owned by Rock Bottom. OK. I asked him if the Singletrack Copper was also from Rock Bottom. He said he hadnít given me that one, heíd given me a Mollyís. I asked him where that came from. He didnít know. He said it was only his 2nd day. Oh, and on my receipt my burger was listed as "well". I hadnít ordered it well.

This was right by my gate which makes it a bit of a no brainer. They try to get you right off the plane before you get to the food court where there are more choices. Actually, despite what anyone thinks about Rock Bottom beers itís probably the best youíll find in an airport. They have a couple of house taps and some macros. The server was friendly but busy since I was part of the wave of people just getting off a flight that stopped in for a drink. I stuck around long enough to have a drink and then head to the next terminal to catch my connecting flight.

Looking exactly as dull and uninteresting as every chain place, except this is even duller. Typical airport dumb down. Unfortunately only got to have one beer, but they had four of their own and a couple of others on tap. Slowmowing barman, but he didnít have much to do, so no problem for me. Worth a while if youíre by.

Nice ambiance, good service, and average price for an airport bar. Limited selection on tap, but another dozen bottles to choose from. Food was outstanding though... I liked it and would gladly stop in again.

Not much to add. Only 4 RB beers on tap. Food and beer is just OK.

Not too often you are in your home airport on a connecting flight, but alas this is my life. Had a chance to check this place out though and solid for an airport bar. Not a ton of selection, but decent options. Food was okay and menu not as extensive as a regular R-B.

A typical Rock Bottom though in an airport. The staff was friendly enough an the food was what you would expect from Rock Bottom. The prices were high as are all airport restaurants. The beer selection was somewhat limited.

Typical Rock Bottom location. They were out of two of their beers, but served samplers with extra portions of the beers they did have. Friendly and efficient staff. Not a terrible airport bar.

Itís cool to have a brewpub in an airport. Outside of that, its the standard Rock Bottom brews and food. Pretty decent, but not great.
