I stopped in at Surly Brewing Company in Saint Paul, Minnesota for dinner and a beer. The brisket for dinner was fabulous. I paired it with Furious IPA and Hell lager. Both great pairs for the brisket. What a great restaurant and brewery.
I stopped in at BlackStack Brewing in Saint Paul, Minnesota. The clear choice on the beer list was Local 755, a New England Style IPA. Very fruit forward and not overly hoppy. The brewery and tap room are a great large space with plenty of areas to relax and enjoy a beer and a chat or a game with friends. I’m glad I stopped in.
I stopped in at Bad Weather Brewing Company in Saint Paul, Minnesota. I enjoyed the Hitched white grapefruit IPA and the Pineapple Wheat. Both had just enough fruit flavor to be interesting without being overpowering. The IPA was clearly more bitter and the wheat was more mild. Both wonderful beers and very drinkable. The environment at the brewery was hip and full of energy when I stopped by.
I stopped in at Barrel Theory Beer Company in Saint Paul, Minnesota. I wound up trying four beers. Robo Trippin is a tart cherry gose. Agua Fresca is a tropical fruit Berliner which I found to be delicious. Java Oats is a coffee stout and K3yb04rdW4rr10r is a delicious chocolate milk stout. I enjoyed all of these beers and the bartender was very kind to offer one of the stouts on the house.
