Out of all the times I have a low key in St. Paul this is the establishment I find myself frequenting the most.

Historic looking bar that really is a neighborhood bar before it is anything else and that makes for a very relaxed atmosphere. There is the bar in the center of the main room with an addition room attached to it with multiple tables. There is nice deep seated booths that encompass the bar.

I do not recall how many taps this place has but it has to be 30+ and they are always changing it up. They have a focus on some Minnesota locals which is nice and get some of the more obscure beers from Summit. The bottle list is equally impressive and I have shied away a tap offering every now and then.

The food is great, though slightly pricey for what it is. It's strength is high quality items, but with limited options. This helps with sometimes indecisive nature.

The service like most places is hit or miss, but overall I have always had some frustration with many of the bartenders, not the servers. They have been a little abrasive from time to time, especially (1,080 characters)

Visited on a Tuesday at about 5:30pm. Sat at the bar. Quiet and slow.

V - Cassic beer bar that has been ridden hard and put away wet. A open and light bar but one that would be dark at night. Clean enough. 4
Ser - A towny bar in my opinion. Jeff was nice, attentive and friendly but at shift change the bartendress ignored me. 3.5
Qual - Clean glassware and no complaints otherswise, 4
Sel - Excellent number of taps, good local selection but also good variety across U.S. as well as some good international bottles. 4.5
F - Had the chicken cordon bleu. Good but not too far above average - 3.75 (597 characters)

This is a neighborhood bar with a classic old pub vibe that specializes in American craft and Belgian Beers. They have been operating since 2002 and claim to be the Twin Cities' original craft beer bar. Their menu combines upscale bar food with bistro style entrees. They have 48 tap handles that change frequently. The offerings usually include a delightful mix of local, regional and national craft beers supplemented with some very fine imports. (448 characters)

My favorite place to grab a good craft beer. Very nice selection on tap that constantly changes. Very good food for a bar at a reasonable price. I've never had to wait for a table and all the servers are knowledgeable about whats on tap and in bottles. (252 characters)
