Easily one of my favorite breweries to visit. Their Mjolnir em-brazened logo greets you from the road. The front entrance greets you with Scandinavian flags and looks like a log cabin. Once inside the vibe is great, it's like walking into an old Norse tavern. Wooden floors, and walls. Wooden stools with oak barrels as tables, lights adorned with stag horns, Black Metal music playing over the speakers. It sets the mood incredibly well. And the beer? Well the beer is absolutely top notch. Truly world class in my humble opinion. Most of their offerings tend to be smoked (which I personally love), but they brew all over the spectrum. They even brew some of the much lesser known European styles. Normally around 8-10 constantly rotating brews on tap, all of which tend to be very good to absolutely phenomenal. The prices are pretty damn good, and there are multiple serving size options. Growlers and crowlers are also available, and are very reasonably priced considering the liquid inside. Overall just a fantastic brewery to frequent, laid back, low key, and really harnesses the Minnesota/Old Norse charm. Easily the best brewery that few have heard about. If your in Minnesota this is an absolute must go-to!

Just a mile or so of 35w sits Hammerheart it looks like a Scandinavian outpost, Norwegian flags and north land cabin look with a Lord of the Rings vibe its a unique place its dark and danky when you walk in colors of black and gun metal, barrels are visible thru a window with brew aging in them. Service was oh so friendly these guys like what they are doing, had 3 brews all were very good one Ba ,2 smoked, wish i lived closer cause i really liked this place and want to see what they offer on a regular basis. Headed north? well pull off at Lino Lakes. In the TC? its just a short drive north. I recommend this place

Finally stopped in on my way out of the Cities going camping. It was about 5 pm on Thursday, so not very busy...staff was really friendly. Unlike a lot of tap rooms in the cities, it wasn't a hipster vibe at all. It is a fairly small space, kind of dark and dennish...would probably be really cozy in the winter. The outdoor patio is okay -- kind of between the road and the building, partially shielded by some conifers. The beers, though, are outstanding. 10 on tap, available in full pours or 8 oz (as I recall) and a nice variety.

this might be my favorite brewery visit of the year. nothing ive ever experienced is like this place, and i adore it. almost wished i lived in minnesota so i could be a regular here, its that cool. in a little house up front with the small brewery behind some tinted glass in the back. tons of wood features like a hobbit hole, arched doorways, ornate wood carving, but still very humble in overall feel with barrels as tables and a lot of sweat equity obviously put into getting the place together. a front or side patio there with a few seats and surrounded by maturing pine trees, its gorgeous, earthy and special, homey and rustic. they have a theme with the beers, mostly or entirely barrel aged or smoked, and in some cases both. they probably had ten or so beers on, and all of them were insanely interesting, barrel aged english browns, smoked chocolate stouts, blueberry india pales, it was just so creative and inventive. all of the beers tasted as good as they sounded, and thats real rare. apparently the guy has brewed at haand, which explains how inspired and unique these beers are. guys working were all real nice, but it was more of a self service thing, so hard to really judge that one. other patrons were super nice and happy to help direct our brewery day around the city. overall this place is elite level, one of the best i have been to in this country. a must visit, i wish it was in denver. cant say enough about it.

edit: they just keep getting better and better. i love the beer in here so much, and the vibe in the winter time is very cozy. hammerheart is one of my favorites in the whole country now! not to be missed if you are in the area!!! impossibly unique and high quality.
