    I'm not going to be the guy who does it, but somebody is going to be along real soon to tell you to call them.
    Don't shoot me, I'm just the messenger.

    Personally I would recommend carrier pigeon.

    They will have some Surly and Summit on tap, but who cares if the beer is only just good enough? Because the food is awesome.

    Wouldn't it be nice if all our bars sites would have up to date and accurate lists. For various reasons ranging from being in meetings to watching the kids or even sick of dealing with people for the day, calling isn't always an option. On top of it all, with the information age, I just want it now!

    Sorry, have never been there. Need to get there though, my wife really wants to go.

    Food is good. Lobster? Beer selection is in my opinion really lame. Go for the food, then go to Freehouse or Fulton.

    Fulton Sweet Child, Lonely Blonde, and Expat. Left Hand milkstout, Ommegang Hennepin, Lagunitas Pils, Victory Dirt Wolf, indeed Let it Ride, usually a Surly line , a Great Divide line and a Summit Line, and also usually Greenflash. The tap list has really improved since last year.

    That's good to hear. I like the place but was disappointed with their beer selection the times I've been. Especially since they have all their kegs on display in the bar.

    It's a "dive" bar. Every time I've gone they have more than just bud, miller and coors. I think people are trying to hard here.

    It's not necessarily 100% right, as it's pulled from untappd checkins, but sometimes it's a good source to see what's around.
