Decent place that has some good potential. I love the atmosphere - classic long oak bar, very nice dark pub feel inside, no TVs, kind of reminds me of a North Woods hunting lodge or ski chalet. The side rooms have a muted artsy feel that I like. One of my favorite bars in terms of atmosphere and one of the few bars that I can cozy up to by myself.

The selection is good, not extremely impressive, but solid, with lots of local and regional beers from Harriet, Fulton, Bells, Founders, Surly, Tyranena, Central Waters, etc., and several from other parts of the country like Stone, Alaskan, and a few Belgians. Nothing out of ordinary, mostly standard offerings, but a nice wide variety. The beers are served fresh and in clean glassware. No complaints there.

Their main weakness is that the service ranges from average to bad. On a normal day, they serve at a medium slow pace, even if business is sparse. I just always feel like I'm waiting longer than I need for everything. I also had one of my personal worst bar service experiences of my life at the Surly Five release party. Several bartenders were behind the bar moving about as slow as you can imagine while the place was packed and hopping. Patrons were annoyed, obviously, as it took forever to get a drink, but no one was being obnoxious or anything like that. Bartenders started being rude to customers and muttering nasty comments under their breath. You never EVER do this to your customers. The rudest, most obnoxious customer needs to be treated with respect and class, even if they are being kicked out.

The food is pretty good pub fare with reasonable prices. The fish and chips was delicious and the buttermilk fried chicken wings were good as well.

Overall, the place is pretty good and has the potential to become one of the premier beer establishments in the Twin Cities.

I have always enjoyed the place. They have a large amount of taps and the I have always found the seasonal rotation to be high quality. They seem to get a lot of limited release kegs.

Great food deals during happy hour.

With this right across the street from Townhall, makes it one of the best beer locales in Minneapolis.

No idea how this place could be ranked in the T100 in the U.S. Beer selection was average at best but certainly not anything extraordinary or impressive. To top it off, the bartenders were extremely disinterested. Will not return and would not recommend.
