Absolutely fantastic place if you want to try a wide selection of craft beers. Great service from the bartenders and a cool part about this place is that you can try a 7 oz serving of a beer and not have to pay too much more per ounce ($5 per pint, $2.50 per 7oz). I’ll be back often.

This is now the bar for your good domestics. Not as much of the super rare one off releases as some, but with 30+ tap lines all dedicated to domestic, and only a few of those non craft/micro beers. John the GM/Beer guy is starting tastings soon, which are sure to be great.
Edit: John is now getting his hands on these previously mentioned rare one off releases, and has started awesome tastings as well. Easily one of the top 3 beer bars in the metro!
A real must if you are anywhere near the twin cities area. AWESOME beer selection that rotates pretty frequently. The bar itself is right down by the U so it gets a little trashed from all the college students and people coming through for games, etc. The bathrooms are just awful. The food is typical bar fare. But WHO CARES?! They have an amazing beer list and host some really cool events. Very knowledgable staff.

Stub & Herbs is probably the best place to grab a beer in town. John’s done a great job steadily improving the place and now there’s constantly 30 interesting beers on tap, some of them real rarities. Add a cask line and even Rogue whiskey on tap and there’s a pretty rockin selection for any time of day. The latest menu revision improved the burgers a lot (the new buns are tasty). Stubs also has the best happy hour in the cities (at least as beer destinations go!).

I had lunch there today. I sat at the bar and had a good chat with a very attentive bartender who was nice enough to let me try a few taps in short glasses. They have over 30 of them. Of note right now was Old Rasputin on tap. Very nice. The food was great (I had an awesome burger and fries). This is pretty good.
This place is great. Great food, great beer, board games and good service. One of the few places where I can still get a bottle of Dark Horse Blueberry Stout (which I love). Monthly tap parties and other events. The patio is also wonderful.
This place is under new ownership, and has quickly improved. All 31 taps are now American micros, with new selections rotating in regularly. The food is still average, but the beer selection is just fantastic. And the servers remain unbelievably hot.
Somewhat of a college bar feel, but with a much better tap selection. Sometimes the taps could be better, but I almost certainly will be able to find something to drink. Bartenders and servers are nice, and seem to know a fair amount about beer (I’ve had discussions with servers about different years of Bourbon County Stout and would never had thought they knew anything about beer beforehand). Food is pretty solid, though mainly just your standard bar food. Good burgers. Happy hour seems to be going on all day, and the prices are fairly cheap. Not a place I would go to during any gopher games.
Stopped here the night before Darkness Day. The crowd was the strangest mix of people I had ever seen. Half the patrons were college tards, and the other half were people there to drink quality beer. The tap list was very good, with numerous local beers from Minnesota and Wisconsin. The beer prices were also very reasonable. The bartenders were also very friendly. The patio was huge, and had numerous tables. This place loses points because of the pee trough...Seriously, that was uncool...Good taps, good people, and a nice friendly atmosphere.
