My one and only visit here is memorable for the fact that of the three beers I tasted, they were all unmistakeably buttery, while there was a massive obnoxious crowd happily drinking them in great quantity. Maybe no one tasted these beers before choosing to sell them. Otherwise, itís a pretty cynical thing to determine that your customer base will willingly pay for badly made beer. Hopefully itís gotten better - this visit was about a year ago - but I wonít be going back to find out.

612 was my 4th stop on a 6 brewery craft beer tour a few weeks ago (after Surly, Steel Toe, & Fulton). It was also my least favorite of the 6 I visited. There were 6 beers available the day I visited...all were good...but none exceptional. I would say the the Rated R west coast rye IPA was my favorite although the Payback oatmeal porter was quite nice too. Of the 6 breweries I visited over 2 days this was the only one I was not able to strike up a conversation with any of the staff...they just didnít seem as outgoing or personable as at my other stops. The tasting room is nice but not that special...although I did like the graphics on the wall...those were a nice touch. My high point was probably eating one of the organic sausages a vendor was cooking in a corner of the tasting room. Although this is a nice stop if you live in the area or if you have already visited the other top places...I wouldnít recommend 612 on an initial MSP craft beer tour.

Brewery and tasting room in a renovated industrial park building (my daughter said that the space above used to be a sort of alternative theater, puppet dramas and the like -- but gentrification/beerification have taken over). Anyway, seven taps: flight of four generous (7oz.) pours for $11; pints for $5. Growlers also available. Tasting room and brewery share the same space. Light-colored brick and industrial pipes and ventilation tubes. Crowded on a Saturday afternoon, and the crowd was decidely older (40s - 60s) than at other places Iíve been to in Miineapolis -- they had The Golf Channel on one TV, if thatís an indication, and womenís college basketball on the other. Beer is okay here. Not the best that the Twin Cities have to offer but not bad at all. I was pleasantly surprised, after previously not hearing very good things about them.

Fun stop. Great beer, nice atmosphere. I recommend the trifecta with Indeed, Dangerous Man, 612... all right there.

Second stop of the night for the brewery tasting room crawl I did with family on a Friday evening. The brewery and taproom are attached, and are brand spanking new. There are a variety of places to sit and have a beer, long bar, bar tables, lower tables, outdoor patio - all quite spacious for a tasting room. There were five beers on when I visited, and the sampler I ordered included 4 of them. Food was a food truck out front. Service was solid, vibe was relaxed and friendly. Their beer was not terribly impressive (bland, under carbonated), so hopefully they can improve on that front. Would love to see this place do well.

70 = ★★Ĺ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

I like what theyíve done here. Itís the only tap room in the Twin Cities that Iíve been to (most of them) where you are almost in the brewing area of the brewery. Got here around 4:30pm on a Wed and there were a couple of guys still doing some brewing related activities just outside the seating area. Cool mural adjacent to the seating area and a nice bar with a video menu board. There was some money put into this place. Had the Rated R and the Zero Hour, both very good. Not so crazy about their logo, which is a little basic, so Iím guessing theyíre not going to make scads of money on apparel and merchandise, but who knows; if the beer wins the people over then theyíll buy the stuff. A welcome addition to the Twin Cities craft brew and tap room scene!

Packed on a Saturday night. Very cool ambiance, huge warehouse setting in one large room with the tanks in the back. There is a younger crowd that some of the other places.Service was rushed and had their hands full with the packed house. The beer needs some work, but this is a good place with potential.

Second time Iíve been here. This is a really nice space. Lots of room even when the parking lot is full. It about ends there. Best beer was a one off seasonal. Everything else is bland and boring. Not a fan of the crowd, annoying at best.

If you want to hear some random girl ruin a song by Eddie Money then you should come here. This felt like a frat bar that brewed their own beer. Beer sucked, ambience was terrible, and now I have a stamp on my hand saying I was there. I regret stopping by.

Stopped in on 3.2.2013. Very cool industrial brewpub vibe - not altogether different than some of our other new NE brewpubs. Flights of 4 available, but a little pricey at $11. Pints are $5. Lots of parking in a lot.
