I'd probably rate this place higher if I'd tried the pizza since it looked good, but on beer and ambiance this place is a 3.5.

It's a nice space, although somewhat small for a brewery. You can ask for a taste of any beer. That's always good.

I wasn't particularly blown away by the beers here, but they weren't bad either. I tried about four and of those, the Golden Strong was the one I chose to have a pour of. It was good but unremarkable.

If you are walking from downtown Minneapolis, this is a good stop on your way to Minneapolis Town Hall Brewing, Republic and Arcadia Cafe.

After a long winter, we took advantage of a sunny Saturday afternoon to go to Town Hall pint club for the first time in a while and then walked down the street to Day Block Brewing.

Day Block is next to Grumpy's Downtown on Washington. So much beer side by side may look like a bad idea. However, Day Block is much more of an upscale, industrial chic compared to Grumpy's gritty character. My guess is that the clientele for the corner may not overlap much. Plus, with a brewpub and a beer bar, their offerings will likely compliment as much as they compete. Hopefully, the flow of traffic from the nearby apartments, Guthrie Theater, Open Book and the future Viking's stadium will provide more than enough customers for both bars.

We ordered a rack of all six samples. All of the beers were solid interpretations of the styles. Of the group, I order a draft of the Frank's Red Ale that had lots of body and a pleasant hop balance. Fruhlinhgsfest was my next favorite, in spite of it not being a favored style, followed closely by the Honey Amber IPA. The Spring Lager and Kolsch were both strong for their styles, just not styles I drink. Lot 56 was adequate but I had been expecting more from the description and Al's reviews of other hoppy Day Block beers.

Dinner was a cheese pizza, thin and slightly reminiscent of Pizza Paradiso in DC but didn't live up to that memory. Thin crust, a bit greasy, full of cheesy goodness and a slight char on the crust, it was a good size for sharing.

I like Day Block. While not in the same league as Town Hall (yet), it's likely a place we'll visit again.
