Oh wow, where to begin! This place is the place to go if you love food or beer...OR BOTH! There tap/bottle selection is almost unmatched in the Twin Cities (and I say almost because you will find the Muddy Pig not far down the road, but that's another review).
The food can be paired with a lot of their beer and the bartenders will give some great recommendations. The bartenders also know their stuff when it comes to beer. Even though they have a vast list of beers to try you can explain what kind of tastes you are in the mood for and they well give a very narrowed down list of options from their sometimes overwhelming menu.
If you are looking to have a few beers with dinner don't expect to drop anything less than $50. It's a very expensive place, but worth it.

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.

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.

plenty of parking in a nice street setting building is cool looking from the outside and kind of cool on the inside hugh selection of brews both on tap and in the bottle lots of limited bottles and taps , the service was just average as the waiter was a bit off putting like it was our pleasure just to be here , food was good and served well but way to pricey so Happy Gnome has great brews but lousy uncaring service with inflated prices on beer and food
