Housed in the former shell of Sgt. Prestons at seven corners in Minneapolis. They kept a lot of the old taxidermy from the old establishment, but removed the rest of the detritus of the former dive/party bar. 32 craft beer taps with the best prices you will find in the Twin Cities or probably anywhere. We wandered in during happy hour and were dumbfounded by finding $3 pints of Stone Arrogant Bastard offered, as well as $3 pints of the heavyweights of local, regional, and national craft breweries. Imports weren't included in this deal, but there are so many interesting tap choices that there is something for every taste. The $5 happy hour burgers looked good in that locally-sourced, free-range trend sort of way.
When happy hour ends, the prices do not go up that much and are easily the best you will find anywhere in town. $4-$6 for pretty much all taps. Service was fast and very friendly, this is definitely worth a stop back. I now have another reason to go to seven corners, besides my favorite brewpub across the street.

Huge improvement over Sgt.Preston's, which was here in the past. Good riddance to yet another vomit soaked college bar. Atmosphere is good, only knock is when there is entertainment, it can be hard to stop. With 40+ taps, the selection is awesome. The selection can be a little static, but at any point in time I can find new brews, and beers of any style. The food is simple, and doesn't break new ground, but it tastes good and the price is right. THB on the same corner makes 7 corners a competitive market, but this is a good place.

I've been here three times in the last month.
The first time was an after-show drink with friends. The waitress was very attentive and patient with our group. The beer selection was great. The atmosphere inside was good- sometimes a bit dark with the colors and light level, but good for intimate evenings with friends and family.
The second time we returned was again for a quick drink. There is not much atmosphere outside, but it was warm and sunny and comfortable. Our server Emily was outstanding (as she was at the Happy Gnome and Stanley's). Selection was good again, but had not changed over as much as I thought it would in the few weeks we had been there.
The third time we came back was for a dinner. We came on Labor Day so the restaurant was fairly empty. Our server was very friendly and helpful, and checked on us often. The Surly Five was great and came in a good size portion. Food quality was good (sometimes on slow days restaurants don't put their best effort in).
My only criticisms:
The beer list doesn't change much, and there isn't a wider bottle selection. A few more rotating taps or bottles would be great, perhaps a 'cellar' of higher alcohol beers for aging.
The atmospheres conflict: the bar is great, but the hip hop music in the dining area conflicted with what I assume the owner wanted to set for the mood. I don't mind the music, but it just seemed to be dissonant with the surroundings.
The Fish & Chips were fairly salty- at first I thought it was the fries, but it was the batter on the fish that was salty as well.
I'd definitely go back and I plan to!
