I think the Brewingtv guys and Nothern Brewer is up there. You should check out the LHBS.

Midwest Supplies is also in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. There are lots of good local beers. Be sure to pick up some beers from Surly Brewing Co. Most liquor stores carry them.

Republic in the 7 corners area is a good tap room. http://republicmn.com/
Northern Brewer has two stores in the area and Midwest is on the Minneapolis side. The St Paul NB is an older, smaller location,(grand avenue) and the Minneapolis NB is a brand new home brew haven. (Lyndale Avenue S)
The Four Firkins is a great craft brew store, pretty close to Midwest supplies.

If you're still in town, Surly does brew tours on Fridays/Saturday evenings. I recommend! You can contact Summit brewing on their webpage to see if they have a tour time as well (usually Tues or Thurs @ 1pm).

Barley John's Brew Pub is another place I've heard good things about. But I've never been there.

Midwest and NB are good places to check out for brew supplies. Pretty cool places and I frequent both.

have a beer or three at the muddy pig and the happy gnome. They are within walking distance of each other in St Paul. Awesome craft beer selections and really good food.

it's almost impossible to get a spot for a surly tour. You may want to check out the minneapolis northern brewer events schedule. they have classes and guest speakers frequently. I'm not quite sure about local bars as I don't frequent the city. I've heard good things about the Town Hall Brew pub.

I'll second the Happy Gnome and Muddy Pig for great craft beer selection.

I am going to St Paul next week as well. I have school there. Barley Johns BrewPub is great. That is where I had my first sour. I suggest it. Maybe up see ya there.
