Visited for dinner and brews on Friday August 30. The outdoor streetside seating looked very appealing but I headed inside to get a better view of the taps, chalkboards, clientale, etc. They have two front garage doors that were open to the street anyway, so it still felt like being somewhat outside. The place was pretty full but no waiting list. The crowd seemed to be pretty local - groups of friends, families, young couples, etc.

I had two flights of four each - one with regular beers (all of which were great including Masala Mama, etc) and one with seasonals (a bit dissapointing with a Kolsch, an Amber, etc). But overall the beer quality was excellent and the food and service were good as well. This is a nice neighborhood bar/restaurant but if you're visiting the Twin Cities for beer purposes I'd recommend skipping this and going to the main Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery instead.

Visited on a recent work trip to Minneapolis and Saint Paul.

Tried the following:
Odell Cutthroat Porter (draft)
Toppling Goliath King Sue (draft)

The King Sue was the beer of the trip for me, while the Cutthroat Porter was just okay. Tap selection was one of the better lineups I came across in Minneapolis. Also had some Pork Naan Tacos to eat; they were fantastic. Classic pub atmosphere with some natural light coming in by the bar. Service was competent as drinks and food arrived quickly and the waitress chatted me up for a bit. My overall experience was stellar, and I would probably come back.

One of my local Taverns. I have loved the food every time I have come here. Great especially in the summer when you can sit outside, or as many have pointed out, they open the garage doors and the inside feels a bit like being outside.
I like the beer selection. Regular and seasonal selections. I was surprised how familiar their 1800 tasted to me--then I remembered I brewed the clone kit from N.B.
Parking can be a little hard to find. be prepared to walk about a block.

This is a wonderful neighborhood place that sells beer from the Town Hall microbrewery. Its a very casual, friendly vibe. They feature 8 of their beers, 4 nitro taps, 4 ciders, 3 cask beers, 8 guest casks, and 10 bottled beers. They serve a wide variety of bar foods - sandwiches and things deep fried. You go here for the beer - the food is a little better at their brewery downtown and the downtown location has more outdoor seating but this is still very nice.

Visited on a Sunday night. Slow at 9:30. Looked just like regulars in the place. Sat at the bar.

Vibe - A townie bar if it wasn't known all over the US by BAs. Dark and worn inside. The place has windows and a garage door that open up the entire bar to the street/sidewalk and a small outdoor patio. This time of year it was wide open and inviting. Patio closes early though during the week – did not get to sit outside :-( Overall a great old fashion bar in an old fashion town but with a new twist. 4.25

Service - Friendly. Bartender was appropriately distant. 4

Selection - Good house beers and a good selection of guest beers. 4

Quality - Different glasses, temperature was good, three beer engines. 4.5

Food – I ate the Heidelberg burger. It was great! Fries were crispy - 4.25

Price - 20oz house beers for $5.50 fantastic compared to DC and NY. Two big beers and a burger and fries for about $20 (excluding tip) was excellent. - $

I like this place, I come here about every other week. I like seeing the rotation of guest beers on tap, and there's plenty of standards by which to educate myself. The food is fancier than bar food: in particular I like Pete's Cabin Burger, mixed with wild rice and mushrooms, and when I ask for mayo on the side (for my fries), it's a seasoned variety that's even more delightful.

One of the bartenders in particular is exceptionally attentive and affable without being pushy. Clearly he knows his beer, as does the other bartender I've seen, but the one distinguishes himself as endeavoring to become a host. I appreciate that.

I don't like holding a venue responsible for its constituency, but I don't enjoy the constituency here. The locals are fine, the families that come in and the people settling down for conversation, but occasionally there's a hipster influx that, initially, made me question whether I was in the right place. Regardless, it's easy to block everyone else out and focus on my food and beer.

I don't think it's awesome they tack on a $2 fee for a gluten-free bun for the burgers, but my wife appreciates the option and they chose a good brand to go with, Udi's.
