I have been there twice now as I was very impressed the first time I felt driven to come back agagin just to make sure the great food wasnít a fluke. Lenghty selection of brews and the owner was more than happy to talk beer for almost 20 minutes.They have a keg of Batch 7000 waiting to be tapped.Did I mention Oak Aged Yeti in a bomber?? Or Kasteel Brune on tap???

This place has a nice bar and a great patio. If you want to enjoy the great outdoors, you will give up some service and beer knowledge as the servers are not as attentive or as knowledgeable as the bartenders. The beer list is great for taps (rotated often) and bottles. The prices are a bit high but somehow worth it as the beers are fresh and uncommon. A $13 venison burger seemed steep but was quite good and far from ordinary. Homemade fries and homemade catsup (I think) really made a difference. The great neighborhood feel keeps me coming back as well. Not far from downtown St. Paul it is worth a stop.

I quite enjoyed this place. great atomosphere on the outside patio, especially for an October night. The service I can only rate as average as they were super nice, but seemed incapabale of being quick. It was pretty quite overall and the selection of beers was stellar. The food as also great, but the menu was sparse. This is one more reason for me to like St. paul a bit more.

Good place. I went here with JK. Great beer selection compared to most places. I didnít order food but the menu looked appetizing. A little pricey, but, what do you expect to pay when ordering Rochefort, Storm King, Hog Heaven, many other quality brews. My only complaint was that they didnít have Surly Furious which I have been waiting to try. Sounds like they had it before but not now. I did get to try the Surly Cynicale, a solid saison however.

Cool looking bar upfront with a more ífamily styleí section in the back for dining. I was with family, so to the back we went. Service was friendly, but didnít seem to know a whole lot about their beer list. Selection was pretty good with a nice selection of locals on tap with some good national/global choices thrown in too. Their bottle list was nice, as well. Didnít eat, but their menu looked good and the food I saw looked nice. Overall, if I lived nearby, I would be here all the time. Great bar.

RBSG 2007 Pub Crawl. Fairly sizeable bar which was drawing a fairly large crowd, but we managed to find a spot at the bar. A very nice tap selection including several Surly brews on cask. Bottle selection seemed excellent as well.

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.

Iíve only been here twice so far but I have to say both experiences have been great. The selection they have on tap is wonderful. They even had Surly Darkness in March. I hear sometimes they have problems with the taps and Iím canít say whether that is true or not but I did have a Surly Mild it it tasted gross, hopefully not how it was supposed too. It is more expensive but the fact that they have an amazing tap selection and an even more incredibly extensive bottle selection makes it worth it. I like the food too. Thereís lots of butter in everything but it goes well with beer.
