First stop on our tour de beer in the twin cities. Two had beer flights, two had pints. Great selection nicely laid out in the menu. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. There's obviously good turnover in beers based on the difference between the menu that I printed off their website (another bonus) from the 30th and the one they had there from the 4th. One beer was a little flat, but that isn't automatically their fault. We were there at noon on a Saturday and there wasn't much for atmostphere, but nothing to create atmosphere either.

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.
