Re-rate: Two of my original gripes have been rectified; I wonít take credit this time, no more smoking and an awesome outdoor patio. The tap selection is also expanded and dirty tap line issues that plagued them early on are a distant memory. Food menu is fit for foodies, and is unique. Bar seating is limited so during the Winter when the patio is shut down good luck finding a place to sit unless you plan to eat in the dining room. One of the top 5 tap lists in the Twin Cities, and perhaps even top 1-2. Original: This place is brand new, having opened in early December. It is owned by the same folks that own the Muddy Pig, just down the street. The decision to start another beer bar so close to another one you own is a little strange, but it makes for a very convenient 1-2 punch for good beer lovers and of course expands the variety that can be served between the two places. The one big negative is that smoking is allowed. Hopefully they have an outdoor patio planned so that those of us that want to live past our 60ís can enjoy beer safely. The draft and bottle selections are staggering and appear to be fluid. They were out of the Hair of the Dog Doggy Claws (which I later that evening had at Barley Johnís) but they did have Hair of the Dog Fred on tap, which was exquisite. Nice interior other than the smoke haze. A few of the offerings that were available, Tap: Bellís Two Hearted, Rogue Brutal Bitter, Sierra Nevada Celebration, Val Dieu Winter, Delirium Tremens, Rush River Winter Warmer, etc.; Bottle: Bellís Wheat series, Victory Hop Wallop & Prima Pils, Rogue Shakespeare Stout, Orval, Duvel, Chimay trio, Great Divide Hercules Double IPA, Yeti Imperial Stout & Fresh Hop Pale Ale, Rockies Mojo, Avery Hog Heaven, etc. 4,8,14,8,n/a,17

Big beer menu, impossible to not find something you would like/want. I was impressed with the selection. Quick service. Dry rubbed wings were excellent.

This is a fantastic beer bar in St. Paul. Not only do they have 70+ taps of diverse selection of (mostly American) craft beers, but the food is also fantastic. Try the duck burger..and poutine (only place in the US Iíve seen it).

Visited the Happy Gnome while in town for the weekend. Happy Gnome has a very nice selection of tap beers. Around 40 taps, with a mixture of Minnesota breweries and national breweries.

Great neighborhood pub. Extensive selection of craft beer. Prices a bit on the high side, but thatís not unexpected given the íhood. Didnít sample the food, but it looked well-prepared and interesting.

stopped in on a Tuesday night, sat at the bar straight away and as I perused their beer menu I was slightly disappointed, no .rar beer here, Avery Meph, Samael and Beast are the most limited beers I suppose, nothing like what the recent list would portray, Service is prompt and friendly, NO Flights unless youíll pay 18 or 19 bucks for 5. Prices are high but match the "fancy" menu of Duck Confit and oddball "delicacies" my burger was tasty and fresh ground. all in all a good place with easy parking, I wish they would have a better selection of harder to come by beers.

The food here is very good but not great, and the plates are very American-sized. Iíd prefer slightly smaller and slightly less expensive. The beer selection is always excellent. It doesnít seem to rotate fast enough for my taste and the lines are sometimes a bit suspect in their cleanliness (they get grumpy if you ask about it, however, so donít), but their tap list always includes limited edition brews from the Midwest and beyond. Great beer destination.
