Whelp, my ass done got schooled by the airlines, stranding me in MinnesOOOta for 2 days (Airlines 1, Tick 0) while sending my bAAYg back to California (Airlines 2, Tick 0) while I was left in a place where it was snowy and 10 degrees, while traveling dressed for warm and sunny North Carolina or California (Airlines 3, Tick 0).
After buying some clothes at Mall of America, I made my way over to this joint. This is basically a standard bar inside more or less, average-sized with nice decor and a comfortable feel. There were 5 standard beers on tap (available as a sampler), a couple seasonal offerings, a barrel aged beer (Honey V), and 1800 IPA and Masala Mama on cask. It's almost too obvious to say, but the quality of beers here is excellent, easily in the top 10 percent of brewpubs you will visit. There are also some good guest taps on. I was tempted to finish with a bottle of Grain Belt Premium just for the tick, but I spared my dignity and passed on it in the end. There is also a nice selection of whiskey if you're into non-beer malt-based drinks or want to taste something that you've had a beer aged in a barrel of.
The food menu includes a lot of "bar food" that is fairly well-done. I was hoping for a Juicy Lucy, but sadly they don't serve those here. Prices for food and beer are about average.
I was there on a Tuesday night and we got pretty good service, but it's hard to say how it would be on a more crowded night.
So how did it all end up? I got 8 new beer ticks, 1 new place tick, and 1 glass of Masala Mama on cask. Game over! Tick 10, Airlines 3. He shoots he scores! If I ever get back to MinnesOOOta, this place will definitely be on my list of stops.
