I love all the beer on tap but sometimes they donít update the list so I donít always get what I want. The food is very good but pricey and so is the beer. Overall I good place to go and hang out and have a few beers.

Nice comfortable cozy place to enjoy a beer. Food menu is solid, but itís more upscale so it can be pricey at times. Service is attentive and friendly. Amazing selection of craft beers but...... Iíve been here a number of times and had problems with the beers. Beers will be flat, skunked, and off in general. If they could resolve the tap issues it would be great, until then Iíll go down the street to Muddy Pig where Iíve NEVER had a problem with any of the tap beers.

My favorite place to go for beers. Terrific selection of great beers, very knowledgable and helpful staff, great patio in the summer. A little pricey, but worth it. And flights are now available, but Fíing outrageously priced.

Amazing food, good service(sometimes), and a beer list that makes me cry. Plus a fire pit in the back. Go, eat, drink, and donít worry about the bill. Donít be put off if the service isnít great and try at least one cheese plate.

We happened to stop by during a festival weekend (beer, then whiskey etc.), so there was a tent outside in addition to the indoor bar, seating, and the pleasant patio outside. Lots of Surly, Summit, and other local beers on tap (SurlyFest, Bender, Furious, etc.) and a good, if eclectic, selection of bottles. Got to try Tyranena Scurvy and SurlyFest. Went there for brunch, and the omelette and homefries were excellent. Decent service, lots of available seating for brunch, and it seems like this is one of the must-visit spots in St. Paul.

This place is a beer lovers heaven! If you live in or plan to visit the Twin Cities, this place has to be on your agenda. They have the best beer selection around. Hands down. You can find everything from a Bourbon Barrel aged Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Porter on tap to the very beat in local fare pulled right from a firkin. The beer board is always changing, so visit often. And the staff is always pleasant plus very knowledgeable! They know their stuff. I also love the beer dinners. They are a steal @ $65 a plate, even if that seems a little spendy...well worth it! Two thumbs up!

Heh, canít believe I havenít rated this place yet. Been here about a half dozen times. Nice looking place. Service is hit or miss, the bartenders donít seem overly attentive. Great tap selection, but they seem to have probs with dirty tap lines. Might want to ask for a sample first before you order. Food is decent, but rather expensive, not worth the money. Trendy place, but there are better options in the Cities.
