this is about as no frills as it gets, and a great testament to the "if you brew good beer, they will come" sort of motto, it was absolutely packed on a saturday afternoon, no clue what they used to do before the addition of the back room! bar in the front when you walk in with a few tables, and then a new back room are with picnic table style seating, not a seat to be found! they had a great selection of beers on, including some of their special barrel aged stuff, the black barleywine in barrels was insane, as was the lunker, but everything we tasted (and in my experience everything they make) was fantastic! nice to see such a diverse selection all done so well. service was unremarkable, except that they seemed to be handling the business pretty well, we didnt wait long for full glasses at the crowded bar. no much decor in the place, cinder block walls, a small view to the brewing equipment, and mostly just places to sit, but with beer this good, the ambiance is almost irrelevant, and the enthusiasm of the folks inside was contagious, everyone was stoked! i have yet to have a beer from these guys that isnt excellent. from a beer standpoint alone, they are one of my favorites in the greater twin cities, hands down.

Neat location being close to Uptown in an industrial park. Their taproom is pretty basic and kind of dark. It always seems pretty busy. The service is usually solid and the pours are generous for the price. It kind of seems like their variety lacks if one is looking for a variety of session able beers. They often have food tucks and have outdoor seating. One issue is their quality seems to have plateaued if not slightly declined. Size 7 was my go to IPA but everyone seems to be catching up and this beer seems like it is losing its charm.

Newly renovated larger taproom just opened. Front bar is always well tended by Chelsea. New back room is pretty simple but doubles the capacity.

Taps are solid. Always the year rounders plus a couple good seasonal. You won't notice much difference week to week. But the limited seasonals typically remain on tap for several weeks.

My favorite brewery in the Twin Cities. Size 7 is consistently one of the best IPAs around. Solid West Coast IPA with floral nose. They've gotten a lot better about seasonal offerings. Tap room is no frills which fits theme of the entire brewery. Blue collar, hard-working and not substance over style. The brewmaster Jason built the bar, stools and tap set up himself if that gives you any indication as to the type of dude he is. Their barleywine Lunker is awesome!

I love everything about this place. The beer is only released when it is ready. Great food trucks, too.

I've been here a few times for parties and birthdays. I've never received great service. I like the selection of beers and the quality of the beer, but the place always seems dead and boring when we go and our service is still slow.

Best brewery in the Twin Cities, hands down. Great variety of styles. GABF awarded Best Scotch Ale and the Size 7 is the best IPA in the state of not Midwest
