Taken to this place by friends in Minneapolis during a 5 hour layover at the airport. Thanks guys! Lots of great beers on tap. I had Tyranena Pumpkin Spice and Summit Oatmeal Stout from the cask becasue I hadnít had them before.. We had dinner and the food was very good. Very cool restaurant/pub.
I made my first appearance this afternoon, a Saturday at 3:00 PM. The place was quite busy for the rather off hour. I was able to find a string of 3 empty bar stools so that I could sit without having to establish territory. The bar tender was really harried with the situation, since she was getting hit with lots of orders. She was nice enough about it. I ordered a Surly 16 Grit and one of the small plates, a rather outstanding Braised Elk Tartlet. I then followed up with a Surly Furious. The service got better as the rush died down. The atmosphere is great, pub like, and the food I tried was awesome. I will return.
Iíve only been here twice so far but I have to say both experiences have been great. The selection they have on tap is wonderful. They even had Surly Darkness in March. I hear sometimes they have problems with the taps and Iím canít say whether that is true or not but I did have a Surly Mild it it tasted gross, hopefully not how it was supposed too. It is more expensive but the fact that they have an amazing tap selection and an even more incredibly extensive bottle selection makes it worth it. I like the food too. Thereís lots of butter in everything but it goes well with beer.
I love all the beer on tap but sometimes they donít update the list so I donít always get what I want. The food is very good but pricey and so is the beer. Overall I good place to go and hang out and have a few beers.
Nice comfortable cozy place to enjoy a beer. Food menu is solid, but itís more upscale so it can be pricey at times. Service is attentive and friendly. Amazing selection of craft beers but......
Iíve been here a number of times and had problems with the beers. Beers will be flat, skunked, and off in general. If they could resolve the tap issues it would be great, until then Iíll go down the street to Muddy Pig where Iíve NEVER had a problem with any of the tap beers.

My favorite place to go for beers. Terrific selection of great beers, very knowledgable and helpful staff, great patio in the summer. A little pricey, but worth it. And flights are now available, but Fíing outrageously priced.
Amazing food, good service(sometimes), and a beer list that makes me cry. Plus a fire pit in the back. Go, eat, drink, and donít worry about the bill. Donít be put off if the service isnít great and try at least one cheese plate.
We happened to stop by during a festival weekend (beer, then whiskey etc.), so there was a tent outside in addition to the indoor bar, seating, and the pleasant patio outside. Lots of Surly, Summit, and other local beers on tap (SurlyFest, Bender, Furious, etc.) and a good, if eclectic, selection of bottles. Got to try Tyranena Scurvy and SurlyFest. Went there for brunch, and the omelette and homefries were excellent. Decent service, lots of available seating for brunch, and it seems like this is one of the must-visit spots in St. Paul.
