[Note: it's weird that this place doesn't have any other reviews. I could swear I've read reviews of it in BA. Might be a burp in the computer...]
Atmosphere: a big, pretty tasting room in the front of the brewery. A decent amount of seating inside, though it surely does get crowded. An outdoor patio (thankfully nonsmoking!) with a view to Target Field (the Minnesota Twins ballpark) a few blocks away provides more seating and standing. A regular food truck parks outside. An hour before a Twins Friday evening game, it was busy, but I got a couple beers with only a couple minute wait each time.
Quality: Unfortunately, not overwhelming. I had the Expat Rye Saison, and it was kind of blah. Decent, drinkable, but just not anything special. Their flagship Sweet Child Of Vine, an English IPA, has a cute name but is really pretty average beer at best.
Service: bartenders were friendly enough, and efficient: it was a high volume operation, and they were slinging beers rapidly.
Value: At $5 for a pint, it's an okay price, but I wouldn't pay $5 for the Sweet Child of Vine again, and would be hard pressed to go out of my way to buy this stuff.
Their winning formula is probably location, location, location: it's just a tiny walk to and from Target Field, so about 81 days a year, they've got a built in crowd for baseball fans and attendees who don't want to do their pre-gaming and post-gaming at the (mostly less interesting) bars in downtown Minneapolis proper.

Ample seating inside and out. Stopped in before a Twins game but it never felt overcrowded.
Fantastic aromas of brewing beer.
No foodservice, but walk up bar pumped patrons through rapidly. Great range of rotating food trucks.
4 beers on tap when we were there. Narrow range.

Great neighborhood taproom. I walk for growlers. I hang for pints - garage atmosphere, lively, active, loud, happening without pretense. Feels like a constant block party/social club. Friendly door staff. Barkeeps a bit overwhelmed by the crowds. Good prices, solid selection. New patio addition. Open limited hours. Best of Minneapolis food trucks rotate. A must visit if you are downtown for a Twins game or just downtown.
