Excelsior is a very appropriate brewery for its location. Much like the atmosphere during the summer on Lake Minnetonka, this place feels like one big party. The place is always packed and their taproom has a large space with a welcoming feel. There are several tvs and they have a nice patio. They regularly have high quality bands and other events. Their beer befuddles me. It does seem to be getting better, but for the most part, it really does not excite me. I have had solid beers but nothing more. They sell many of their blonde which is not surprising when seeing their clientele. Overall, it's a fun place to be and the beer is alright as well.

Visited on a hopping Friday night. No wait for the growler fill/tap beer. Solid selection, although we only tried a few (many more previously). We tried the Belgian Quad and Double Up Imperial Black IPA - both were excellent, although the quad should really be a Dubbel.

Nice vibe to this place, I ended up going here after purchasing a Groupon for a couple of growlers and pints. The selection was a bit limited on my one visit and the place is quite small for the Saturday crowd that showed up. Decent beers and I will probably return at some point to refill my growlers.
