    Any Twin Cities BAs ever been to the Valley Tap House in Apple Valley? Going to be staying near there in a few weeks and wonder if anybody knows if they have decent taps? Didn't see a list on their website at all.

    Pretty decent. Great, if you consider it's the south metro suburbs, and you're not an Old Chicago (also nearby) guy. Not the largest list in the metro, but there are always a few "out there" selections. And the lunch/happy hour deals are good, too. Some taps are $3 during those times, some I think are $1 off, with no real rhyme or reason. I like to go have a $5.95 pizza and two Brooklyn Monster barleywines at $3 each. Pretty low-cost lunch.

    Thanks! Will probably definitely check it out then, since it's so close. Of course would love to hit up a joint like the Happy Gnome or a local taproom if we have time too, but this is just super convenient.

    Solid tap lineup, awesome happy hour deals on beer and food.

    Best in the area for sure. Visit Blue Max (I think you already said you were in another thread) and check out Apple Valley Liquors too. They have a great selection and often have some things hang around after they sell out at Blue Max. Their stores are very close to The Valley Tap House.

    And I know you didn't ask, but the food is damn good. ESPECIALLY for the south metro.

    What he said. When I lived in the south metro I frequented here quite often.

    Good to know the food is good too. May hit it up when I roll into town that Friday evening! Thanks!
