Itís been a while since Iíve been to Stub & Herbs. Before ratebeer, I was here a few times and the only thing that stuck out was the outdated bathrooms. This didnít bother me because I was used to this in college. Bad bathrooms, but accompanied with cheap beer/drinks. The tap list since the last time I was here has exponentially grown. Very nice list including Leinieís Big Eddy Impy Stout on tap, which surprised me since I havenít seen this beer anywhere in a while. Nice college ambiance, and good food. Price is excellent for craft beer offerings. A bacon cheeseburger meal for $7.50 with a special $3 pint price for any Surly offering with the order. Good, if not great place that I will probably be visiting in the future when my tennis matches are scheduled at the Baseline center which is within walking distance.

The place has vastly improved since the new ownership has taken over. There is a large selection of local and domestic taps, as well as an upgraded menu of relatively standard bar fare. They have the longest daily happy hours in the area from what I have seen, and most pints are $3 during that time. I havenít had the opportunity to try any of the beer tastings yet, but I definitely like to attend one.

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.
