I had lunch there today. I sat at the bar and had a good chat with a very attentive bartender who was nice enough to let me try a few taps in short glasses. They have over 30 of them. Of note right now was Old Rasputin on tap. Very nice. The food was great (I had an awesome burger and fries). This is pretty good.

This is now the bar for your good domestics. Not as much of the super rare one off releases as some, but with 30+ tap lines all dedicated to domestic, and only a few of those non craft/micro beers. John the GM/Beer guy is starting tastings soon, which are sure to be great. Edit: John is now getting his hands on these previously mentioned rare one off releases, and has started awesome tastings as well. Easily one of the top 3 beer bars in the metro!

This place is under new ownership, and has quickly improved. All 31 taps are now American micros, with new selections rotating in regularly. The food is still average, but the beer selection is just fantastic. And the servers remain unbelievably hot.

Been here for lunch a few times in the last three weeks. Pretty good service, decent enough burgers. Very nice local and micro selection. On U of M east bank.

This is a U of M bar, so I have been to it a few times over the past year. The atmosphere is pretty decent, has always been a fair number of people but not too crowded (except on Beer Buffet nights when the line to get in stretches around the corner). Some of the staff seem pretty friendly, some seem like they are doing you a favor by pouring you the drink. Pretty decent taps selection, and alright prices but there are local places with better selection, and other places with cheaper prices, so it doesnít stand out in either regard. Never tried the food. **Better re-rate to come, but they have really improved.

Stub & Herbs is probably the best place to grab a beer in town. Johnís done a great job steadily improving the place and now thereís constantly 30 interesting beers on tap, some of them real rarities. Add a cask line and even Rogue whiskey on tap and thereís a pretty rockin selection for any time of day. The latest menu revision improved the burgers a lot (the new buns are tasty). Stubs also has the best happy hour in the cities (at least as beer destinations go!).

I organize a weekly travelling happy hour with people from my work, and this week we decided to try Stub and Herbís. I had never been there before and didnít know anything about the place except that itís an East Bank U of M bar (it was suggested by a coworker), so I was very pleasantly surprised to discover that they had an impressive beer selection. They have about 20 beers on tap, many of them quite interesting, and dozens more in bottles. I ordered a Flat Earth Pale Ale (my first time tasting this new St. Paul beer -- I think it could catch on) and a Hacker-Pschorr Munchner Dunkel, both on tap. As beerpunk mentioned, they supposedly had a 2 for 1 special going, but they ended up simply charging me half-price for both of my beers, which was even better. I found the staff to be friendly and knowledgable. The atmosphere was very cool and welcoming. Itís not exactly the classiest establishment, perhaps even a borderline dive bar, but itís definitely down to earth and chill. If I were a student at the U of M or lived in the area, I could see myself as a regular at this bar, and I get the impression that it does have a large and loyal regular crowd, which usually is a good sign.

This bar has seen much change over the years while retaining its nascent charm; the stained wood bar and mouldings, mock-library, and Big Ten ephemera. Sadly, such charm is marred by areas of disrepair elsewhere. Although its beer selection remains the best on campus, the benefit to business has been negligible due to increased choices in the Metro area. Current draught offerings include Victory Hop Devil, Unibroueís Maudite, and Hacker Pschorr MŁnchner Dunkel. The bottled selection has improved recently and includes a handful of offerings from smaller Belgian and Polish brewers. Best of all is the 2 for 1 deal offered on their thrice-daily happy hour, as it includes Rush River and Surly taps. Prices are good all-around, and food quality is par for a sports bar. As a longtime regular I acknowledge the previously-noted difficulties regarding service and attitude. Parking is dicey, and Game Days turn the place into a madhouse Ė itís best to visit Sunday evening, as specials and a quiet atmosphere make it ideal for a nightcap. I would recommend a well-timed visit to Stub and Herbís if only due to their longstanding effort to maintain some degree of focus on specialty and craft beer. (And yes they are now smoke-free, despite the ownerís less-than obsequious protestations; any perception of stunted revenue stream derives from this Quixotic gesture!)

Updated rating 9/13/08. Much different place than before. Staff is far more friendly and helpful, the bad attitudes are gone. Food is standard bar fare, and better than average even with a small menu. Some items are made with beer. There is always cheap beer availalbe, and every month they rotate brewers on their $3.50 pint list. Good happy hour.It is a good place now. I have been here many times, but not recently, so the increased selection must be something new. Selection or not, I never go here anymore because this place has the rudest service I have experienced in a Twin Cities bar it is has been that way all of the 10 or so times I have been there. Food is ok. Crowd is mosty university students. Decide for yourself if the selection makes this place worthwhile, but I advise strongly against it based on the service. Sallyís a block away offers the same atmosphere, much better service, and a comparable beer selection. On my last visit in April 2006, the staff was pleasant and I had no complaints. Their selection is better than average for beer. I will go back and change my rating if the staff is again pleasant. But I do have a new complaint and that is that this place is dirty and needs serious work to improve the ambiance. Ties with the local Sportmanís for worst bathroom.As of March 2008, the service, as well as the issues of disrepair, have improved considerably. Score raised.

I had heard the name of this place before, but didnít know anything about it until a friend invited me to join him before attending a Univ. of Minnesota womenís basketball game at nearby Williams Arena. They have a pretty good tap beer selection, although apparently that hasnít always been the case. Examples of what they had on when I was there: Bellís Best Brown and Two Hearted, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Celebration, Anchor Steam, Summit Extra Pale, James Page White Ox, Leinenkugelís Apple Spice, Blue Moon, Sam Adams Boston Lager and Winterís Bourbon (AB). Located in the heart of the University of Minnesota campus area. Since Town Hall is across the river from campus, this may be the closest place to campus to get a good beer.
