Great stop near the theater, target center, target field, etc. Right in the heart of downtown, lots of taps, great bar food. Strongly recommend a stop if you’re looking for a sports bar downtown as their beer selection crushes most others. Its not big but its good.

Liking this place more every time I go. Lots of good taps at a decent price. Nice sports bar downtown. Although a Cleveland Browns bar? Haha ok whatever. I like to stop in when downtown for shows, otherwise I hate going downtown.
Had been here before, but forgot to rate it. I was able to try some leftover Surly from their Surly Bash - Five, Syx and 12 Darkness. Prices were $6.50 - 7.00 though, so not cheap. Sucks having to pay for parking across the street, but such is life downtown. Service was painfully slow and the place was not busy. Nice patio area out back, but if you can’t get service inside; I can’t even imagine what it would be like sitting outside.
Good place in the summer as they have a fun tucked away patio. The beer selection is always very good and varied. The prices are a little high but not out of line for most of downtown. The service on the other hand is indifferent at best and surly on occasion. The food is pedestrian.
This place is almost great. A wide tap list with some great micros on line a crowd that’s not to raucous and a fair amount of seating. The food menu is pretty big and the things I tried were OK. The real problem here was the service. The table waitresses are somewhat attentive, but I only ended up at a table because the bar with 4 patrons was apparently to much for the bartender to handle. I waited over 5 minutes and couldn’t pry him away from washing a couple glasses to order a beer. I later tried to ask a question about a tap and was snubbed by his response. The prices are pretty high on top of that. Unless I was targeting something specific I wouldn’t return.
Cool up stairs with additional small bar (open for special events). Good tap list, even more nice stuff in bottles. Just a nice overall place.

Pretty solid beer spot in downtown Minneapolis - can always count on these guys to have a few goodies on the tap line. And they have the occassional beer event or special tappings, usually Surly-related (I’ve been here for Darkness, Moe’s Bender, etc.).
Presumably would have scored higher had the bartender/owner not kicked us out for moving his patio tables prior to going in to order at the bar due to no waitress service outside. Prior trips there have been fine wiht a good beer selection but the attitude of the owner makes this a no-go right from the start.
Above average downtown bar with a good draft selection. We had great service when we were there, but this was definitely at an off peak time of day. The food smelled great, but was kind of a letdown in the flavor department.
