Nicely well worn place with good food and a curated beer selection. Highly recommended.

Very classic, casual american pub feel. The beer selection is great - lots of nice american micros, and a few decent belgians (on a side note, it was nice to see Paulaner Salvator on tap too), although I was a little disappointed to have missed Surly Two. The service was excellent - our server really knew his stuff and was able to make some solid recommendations. Didnít try the food, but it looked like good, standard pub fare. This really is a must visit for anyone looking for a good brew in the Cities.
Nice little place. We were the only ones there on a Thursday afternoon, so that might have been why the service was good, but we got to sample a lot of their beers which was cool. I had the pulled pork bbq which was pretty good.
I had been meaning to visit this place for awhile now. After the hunger for a Cuban Sandwich and a great beer, I decided to make it happen. This location is very easy to get to(2 minutes off the freeway) and parking is ample. The restaurant has a somewhat cozy feel to it, and very friendly staff. Great list of brews both on tap and in the bottle. The large chalkboard seems to be kept up to date as well. As far the Cuban Sand, it was awesome!! Overall this is a must stop, go for the food and stay for the beers.
Very excellent tap and bottle selection. There is also a wide variety of scotch available. The food is very excellent. Especially the Cuban sandwich and the tortellini. The staff is pretty awesome. Definitely a regular stop
It helps that itís around the corner, but easily my favorite bar in the twin cities. The beer selection is fantastic, with both seasonals coming in and out of the taps (as available and appropriate per season) and specialty bottles being offered that change seemingly by the week. The Happy Gnome is just down the street and also has a good selection of beer, but the food is better at the Pig and the atmosphere is a bit more St. Paul, a bit grittier and neighborhood. Excellent on all counts.
What a pub! So much beer and a nacho plate that looks like one of those volcanos you made in grade school. Service can be a little slow and there are usually not enough people staffed but unless you in a hurry to get drunk itís worth the wait.
I have been here a couple of times. Itís a great place to have a beer and the food is pretty good. Also, I love when they have their "fests" like Belgian Fest, Hop Fest...ect. Pretty awesome. Must stop there.
