This is another brewery on my bike route. There is a big garage at the back of the brewery where you can either fill a growler or stand around and drink with 50 or so of your closest friends. In decent weather things spill out into the parking lot and there is usually a food truck or two around. Their beer somehow tastes better in the brewery than anywhere else. If you are touring Minneapolis's craft breweries this is a must.

When I lived in Minneapolis, Harriet was my go to spot. It's an unassuming warehouse space on the city's south side, and the owner/head brewer is usually on had whipping up the next batch of beer. Their mainstay brews are tasty and they seem to lean towards the fruity side of Belgians. Harriet is also a big supporter of the local and regional music scene, and they usually have a band or DJ on hand to provide a soundtrack to fit the festive mood.

Comfortable and consistently solid beers. Regular with music and most often it is live. Food trucks regularly in the parking lot. Service is low not because it is bad, more there just isn't that much going on. Not a wide range of styles but all beers are solid.

Live band with four guitars, three brews left on tap when I arrived, but one of them was a very nice Belgian Strong Pale Ale. Great atmosphere, like a very cool party in a very cool brewery. Wait a minute, It IS a very cool party in a very cool brewery. When you order your brew, if you look to the left, there are the brew kettles, right out in the open.

Harriet has a fantastic assortment of beers. You should be able to find something on tap that will appeal to the beer grognard as well as more casual beer drinkers, although maybe not folk who swear by cereal beers. I was there on a Wednesday and not only had two great pints (Saisson Nourrice and Woluptuweiss) but got to hear great music. I could've had food as well, courtesy of the food truck that they'd invited in, but I'd already had a Juicy Lucy (a burger with cheese in the middle) across town.

I rate their atmosphere a notch up because of the live music at the back of the brewery. They've set space aside for a stage, lights and actual sound gear, and like the food, they draw an assortment of bands from the area. You can probably guess the general leaning of music types from the psychedelic tinge of their logo. They also have DJs--if you stop by, have a look at the assortment of LPs they have on hand. There aren't too many music genres that aren't represented in their collection.

Overall, top marks. A very friendly place, with ancient couches and stuffed animal heads and funky paintings and murals and more. Any member of this site is bound to like this place.

Love this tap room! It was one of the first in the cities, and they did it right. In the summers they have great outdoor space and excellent live music almost every night. This place is a lot of fun, and they make some pretty good beers, too. Their Hefeweizen is one of my favorites, and they do a few Belgian styles that are really good, too. This place is always a blast to hang out at on summer nights (and can be cozy on winter weeknights as well). They did it all the right way here. The only minor negative is that the place is small when the patio is closed off in the winter, so it can get tight on busy weekends.

this is a great little brewery. very artsy/hippie atmosphere. good classic folk rock music played on original records and a turn table.
great Belgian style beers, was fortunate to try this place when they had 3 of their normal style beers "soured"...this was an amazing experience, unfortunately was not able to enjoy it for as long as I would have liked because there was a cover charge for a comedy show that night and was unable to stick around for it so had to leave about a half hour earlier than would have liked,
great prices -2$ samples
great variety on tap 8+ beers
quality: only one beer outta the 8 I tried were not to my liking
will be going back here in the future
