Out of all the times I have a low key in St. Paul this is the establishment I find myself frequenting the most.
Historic looking bar that really is a neighborhood bar before it is anything else and that makes for a very relaxed atmosphere. There is the bar in the center of the main room with an addition room attached to it with multiple tables. There is nice deep seated booths that encompass the bar.
I do not recall how many taps this place has but it has to be 30+ and they are always changing it up. They have a focus on some Minnesota locals which is nice and get some of the more obscure beers from Summit. The bottle list is equally impressive and I have shied away a tap offering every now and then.
The food is great, though slightly pricey for what it is. It's strength is high quality items, but with limited options. This helps with sometimes indecisive nature.
The service like most places is hit or miss, but overall I have always had some frustration with many of the bartenders, not the servers. They have been a little abrasive from time to time, especially

My favorite place to grab a good craft beer. Very nice selection on tap that constantly changes. Very good food for a bar at a reasonable price. I've never had to wait for a table and all the servers are knowledgeable about whats on tap and in bottles.

My go-to place when the Happy Gnome was too packed, the Muddy Pig offers a similar wide selection of beers (though only 48 taps to the Gnome's 76). Also they generally had a better selection in bottles to make up for fewer taps. Food is certainly a bit more down-to-earth, more bangers & mash and chicken nachos as compared to the Gnome's duck confit and rabbit rillette, but still somehow the nachos were classy nachos. Generally I would come here if I had a group larger than 3; lots of great beers and atmosphere without the wait.

Game in on a Sunday night as the Vikings-Packers game was ending. The bar room with the TVs was pretty packed. No one was in the other room, and they allowed us to sit in there. Great looking place. The second room looks like an old pub hall. The beer/drinks were high quality. (My father-in-law got a great Martini at a great price). Good quality beer. Nice selection with a good deal of local/Minnesota brews. The staff was very friendly. I always snoop around a beer bar that I haven't been to and they kept asking me if I needed help. They were quick to answer all questions we had. We didn't have time to try any food since we had reservations at The Happy Gnome. It was fun to watch the crowd change from a sports bar crowd to a beer nerd crowd after the game ended. All in all, it was a cool place to have a drink.

Great old building in St. Paul. Wood paneled walls make you feel right at home. An ever changing selection of at least 40 beers on tap and hundreds of Whiskeys and Scotches. They also have a great menu and delicious food. The beer list on their menu is always kept up to date and they also have a little paragraph written out about each beer including IBUs and ABV. Very knowledgable staff and good service. They also sell their tumbler glasses for a swift $3 a piece if you're looking for a souvenir. Definitely a place to seek out if you are ever in St. Paul.

Have been coming here quite a bit since I've moved to the city. Laid back in the afternoon but becomes quite crowded in the evening. All ages represented. The taps are a little above average, with lots of range; surly, weyerbacher, odell, schell, great divide, avery, and seasonals.
The only problem I have with this place is the bartenders. I've always had terrible service at the bar. It doesn't matter what time, or how busy they are. They're very slow, and rarely social. They just seem out of it, and party'd out. On several occassions, my friends and I have ordered beers and the bartender get side tracked and forget to bring them to us. Just shitty service.The waiters and waitresses are great though.

The first thing you will notice is the parking, or the lack thereof.
The interior is like an old English or Irish pub, which is nice, but it could use some updating. The table and chairs we sat at have seen better days and were covered with the filth and crumbs of quite a few patrons before us. Even the menus were low rent.
The service was lacking. It took at least 10 minutes for anyone to notice we existed. The couple that walked in before us had drinks and had ordered food before our waitress ever came to our table. This was at 1:00 in the afternoon and there were maybe 10 people total in the bar.
Needless to say we did not order beyond the first round and the appetizers.
The one positive note, they have a vast selection of beer and spirits.
