If you fight through the road construction and the lack of parking you will find a nice brewpub. I guess everyone parks, as I did, in the VFW parking lot and risk being towed. I visited during a weekday afternoon so the place was completely dead. There is seating in front of the pub but I wouldn't think that was very attractive considering the street traffic and heavy construction vehicles surrounding you. Inside is a quiet and clean pub. The brewing equipment sits off in one corner while tables sit along the walls surrounding the huge bar. The floor is unfinished concrete which I found slightly amusing. Service was good and friendly.
I think 6 of their beers are on tap. I had a Keller and a Kolsh. Both were delicious and priced at $4.50 a pint. The food was good but the meun seemed a bit limited. Still there should be something that you will find appetizing. I think this is an underappreciated brewpub in the Twin Cities.

Had the opportunity to visit Herkimer's last week after purchasing a $20 coupon for $10 through Google Offers. Herkimer's is, as they say on their website, a German-inspired brewpub located at Lyndale and Lake Street in the uptown area in Minneapolis. It makes a long list of German-type lagers including Kolsch, Dortmunder, Maibock, Dunkel Weiss, Alt Bier, Oktoberfest, Bock and Doppelbock. For food 17 serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and has a happy hour menu. Its menus contain standard fare items along with a fair share of unique recipes including Peurco pulled pork, Fish and Chips, Sausage and Mash
Herkimer's decor is a modern 50's style with numerous posters on the walls. It is a casual seat yourself brewpub. The atmosphere was warm, casual and relaxed.
In our group we enjoyed the variety of beers and selected for drinking the Kolsch, Dunkel and Alt Bier. We had soft pretzels as an appetitizer. For our dinner he chose the Peurco pulled pork and the fish and chips.
Our overall experience with Herkimer's was very good. The variety of beers and food make for very enjoyable experience. We recommend you try this out.

A- A fairly nice bar. A couple tvs. Extra benefit because they have shuffleboard. Fairly small.
Q- Everything is fresh. Clean. All around enjoyable.
Ser- Service wasn't the friendliest but they were quick.
Sel- They only have about 7 beers on tap, but they're all decent to good and very fresh.
F- The food is subpar. Sandwiches are decent. French fries are disappointing. Bars like this that are about sports and shuffleboard should have good french fries.
It's worth going for a beer if you're in the area, but not necessarily that good from a food point of view.

I was in the Twin Cities area for October and visited on a Monday evening, during Monday Night Football. There were certainly people there, but hardly busy. Decor was basic - it seemed to be going for a bit of a simple classic vibe to me, but I wasn't there for the vibe, but rather to enjoy a few beers, so I took a seat at the bar.
When I got someone's attention, they showed me a beer list. The good news is that the beers are different from the standard american microbrews. They were generally German styles and mostly Lagers, although Alt is an ale. The printed descriptions were a bit helpful. Unfortunately the help didn't seem that interested in beer.
The beers themselves were decent. Not spectacular, but good. They also were not styles I have that much. Because they are a change of pace, I rate them a bit above average for selection.
I'm glad I went, but never felt like going back.

This place will not be remembered for its atmosphere by me. The inside is basically a large bar with very little decor. It's really a no frills place. The outside patio is fine, but their really isn't much to look at in terms of plants or surroundings. They do have two beanbag courts which give people something to do. They had five available beers. All german styles, but the darkest beer available was an alt. Would have been nice to have one bigger beer option. Service was average. A bit slow really, but not terrible. The beers I did try seemed to be on par for the styles. Some of the styles are pretty unique and were first for me. Tried some sweet potato fries which were phenomenal. Not a bad place, but it just wasn't a fit for me and I can't see myself going back.
