Don’t you love it when a place has the highest rating in the area, and you go there and it actually lives up to it? We went here for brunch. It was great. There were two guys playing live music. The beer list was really amazing. The service was nice and knowledgeable but not overbearing. If you like beer and are in the Minneapolis/St Paul area, this is a MUST visit.

They have 77 rotating craft beer taps and their turn over is fast enough that the taps remain fresh. They back the taps up with 30 or 40 bottled beers. I am in a rut and have been eating their angus cheese burger every month or so for the past three years - it is that good. The crowd can get loud but not oppressively so. Their charcuterie plate makes a nice after work snack to wash down with a few craft beers. If you stay long enough, try their dinner menu - its excellent.

I like this place-urban, cozy, personal, and full of people who love craft beer. The service is way above average, the bartenders are knowledgeable and treat you like you belong there. I love the appetizers with perhaps
two draught pours, sometimes the same, sometimes different. My only complaint, if there is one, that there's nowhere to hang a coat when you have one.
