Stub and Herbs is a great campus bar that gets away from the typical college bar theme of having only mass produced beers on their menu. Being a student at the University of Minnesota and beer lover Stub and Herbs is my favorite after class hangout when I'm looking for a tasty brew on campus. The selection is defiantly far beyond the typical college bar with a solid list of bottles and a great rotating selection of Taps from some of the best in brewing including Lift bridge, Bells, Surly, and Sierra Nevada. Food good and I enjoy their burgers all the time to soak up some of the hoppy goodness that I have just consumed.

Beautiful aged bar right on campus where you will almost never find a stereotypical college student except for gameday. For the most part, the students that frequent here are genuinely looking for good beer and not always looking to get hammered. Their prices and pours of their rare beers are generous. Their selection and rotation seems to get better every year and their food is typical bar food, but still very good. It is well priced and they have a couple takeovers each month, but do not seem to hype them up like other places do. Definitely the place for people looking for craft on campus.

This is a college bar. They do have an above average tap list. I did not try the food. Seems like a good place to grab some beers, but I assume it gets slammed with college students during the school year. Was a bit grimy, but that is how all crowded college bars get.

The bartender was attentive. I never had to look for service.

A college joint filled with college kids. When the kids are around its loud and energetic - sometimes too energetic. When they are not around, it can be dull and somewhat depressing.

Visited on a summer Monday at 6:30 pm. Place was slow. Just off UM campus. There are definitely better beer bars in the twin cities. Walk to surly less than a mile away.

V - Typical dark and dank northern latitude bar. Definitely beer is part of their focus but not particularly beer centric. Curious as to how often the taps rotate based on their rather permanent looking beer menu. 3.5
Q- All beers in shaker pints (-). All the glasses look clean. 3.5
Sel - About 35 on tap with BMC in bottles. A good selection focused on local brews - Surly, Indeed, Steel Toe, Fulton, Lift Bridge, Summit, Bent Paddle. Also a sour on tap. It was summer so only one stout on tap 4
S - Staffed by university students. Friendly but distant. 3.75
F - Ordered the bleu burger which was good. Fries were pedestrian. 3.5

Only thing I didn't like about the place was the dungeon bathroom that gave fear to possible transgressions against my person.

Awesome tap list always and often unbeatable beer prices on some terrific brews. If heading to any Gopher games this is a must stop!
