Bar attached to a bowling alley. 2 house taps, 1 Surly, and 7 lines of macro crap. At least they have a pinball machine. House beers I tried weren’t bad.

Calling this place a brewpub is a huge stretch. It’s like an old diner with tables so sticky that nothing one can do will get them clean. They had exactly one house beer on tap and it was mostly a swill haven that obviously catered to the non craft beer drinking crowd. The service and food were both diner-like in quality and the waitress was “Minnesota nice.” The lone beer I had washed down the cheeseburger and fries and served as a suitable liquid option to get the job done. A bowling alley occupies the same building but was closed for the summer.

When I visited, it was called Backwater Brewing and happened to be in the Wellington’s bowling alley. I had three of their beers on tap and was not able to get a growler filled after a discussion of the legality and a phone call to the brewer. The beer was all decent and I had some good food. The staff I dealt with were very friendly and at least willing to find out the answer to my growler question. An enjoyable place to visit as you look out over the bowling lanes while sitting at the bar. Fun, but you aren’t going for great beer.
