Yeah, I am shocked where it opened. Not a good spot.
As the original, long-term plan was to open several "multiple locations throughout the Twin Cities", I expect that Apple Valley or Lakeville might see one as well.
The first one in downtown Fargo was the reason I got into craft beer in college. If not for that place, who knows where I'd be. Or how much more money I'd have.
Awesome burgers and fries too. Great to see it's doing so well.
They have been open for a week so any BAs been there yet?
Yelp has some reviews with complaints on the water policy, too much salt and 21 and over only.
Um, you have to pay for water? That's fucking rediculous. Also, 21+? It's a damn burger joint not a night club. Place sounds like all kinds of stupid.
The JL beers business model. 1. Find a completely over saturated neighborhood. 2. Find the worst spot in said neighborhood. 3. Immediately eliminate half your costumer base by being 21+. 4. Infuriate the remaining half by charging for water in a place where NO ONE charges for water. 5. Establish a mediocre tap list. 6. Charge too much.
Sounds like a lovely time.
Editor of the MSP magazine said she ate more of her bun than the burger.
I see no reason to spend my money there when there are so many other locally owned offerings.
Flabbergasted. I've never heard of a burger place being over 21. Charging for water takes the cake.
You forgot one part
Charge for water? Dear lord.
They'll get everything they deserve.
They will need to change this. They are catching some serious heat on social media. I bet they are closed in 8 months.
I'm glad they're getting some heat. I drink plenty of water when going out to eat (and more if drinking beer). It's enough to keep me from considering going there.
Just noticed a recent yelp review stating that they've changed their policy on charging for water. Might consider going there after all...
They still charge here in Sioux Falls. I went there for Beer Camp as they were the only place to get the full set. Reminded me of why I still hate them. Asinine prices and charging for water.
