Stopped in on my way home from Owatonna to St. Cloud on a whim, since I'd never been. It lived up to the hype. I quickly figured out I had spoken to the bartender on BA, and that helped a lot. John was really helpful picking out what to drink, was quick to sample, and definitely didn't push anything on me. Even talked about other places I should consider going. spent a good hour and a half here, had a great lunch and great beer. Being as it was lunch on a Monday, it wasn't crowded, but the people who were there seemed nice. Can't wait to get back down there whenever I can, there is a reason this is the premiere beer bar in Minnesota.
Update Dec 2009. Still amazing. Friendliest staff we had all day overall considering how crowded it was.

Stub and Herbs had the atmosphere of a aged pub in a trendy location, featuring an above average tap list and one of the best music selections I've experienced in a long time. Bartender was boring, slow and depressing, and a below average happy hour takes away from an awesome pub. The company surrounding my party was superb and makes me interested in what a busier night would look like. One to check out but until I investigate further it is not a pub I will be frequenting.

Located in Stadium Village - it's the best bar in the area. But, that isn't saying much still. Full of kids who don't know how to drink but it's stadium village so it's pretty quiet (in the summer, during the school year, ultra annoying). Cool lighting and seating - ol' fashion bar aesthetic.
The bartender gave me a free drink for not having any belgians in stock and he gave my friend a free beer since he was in the service.
Pretty good selection for the area. No one matches at least for a few miles.
But the people... Gah...

My favorite Beer Bar. Rotating taps, and lots of them. Great Grub - Fries are out of this world, pretzel buns are fantastic. Burgers and Buff Chix Sammy are mouthwatering.
Busy on Gopher Game Days.
Reagan the bartender is a boss. Waitress that use to be there looked a lot like T. Swift, which was nice.

Stub's is my favorite MN beer bar. They have a ton of rotating taps, beer savvy staff and they make a mean burger. Have had the opportunity to go there' for multiple release parties for things like Darkness and KBS among others. Their atmosphere is definitely that of a college bar but as long as you aren't expecting a fancy place, it is a lot of fun.
