Get there early, as it will be packed by 5:00 or 5:30. Also check out MacKenzie pub on Hennepin Ave. - good selection of craft beer and decent pub grub. Their homemade pizzas are excellent.

Town hall is a must. I just had their calypso hopped beer and it was delish. The food was a pleasant surprise. Lots of irish bars in my guess is that your talking about Kieran's. Fun place. Psycho suzies in the nordeast neighborhood is a fun place, it's a cross between an tiki and biker bar, great patio on the mississippi, lots of tiki drinks and a decent amount of local beers, great pizza's.

Yep! Brit's Pub. That's it!

I thought Barley John's was "ok" but the outside atmosphere was great. The Muddy Pig is awesome, and I loved the Happy Gnome also.

Wish I could remember the name of the bar, but they had what were basically crab rangoon (angels), but they were stuffed with reuben makings instead of crab. Absolutely fantastic.

I've been to Minneapolis a few times on business and must say it is a pretty happening city. Now that I'm more aware of the breweries in the area I wish my company would send me back there.

Did you check out Republic or Grumpys?

Brits pub is a British pub, who would have thought?

Though I appreciate the time you took to look up the clip art.

I think the pub he's referring to is The Local as that is the Irish pub across from brits. Brits is.. well.. a british pub but also very good.

The Local is actually across and a couple blocks up the street from Brit's, but yes, it's pretty decent, for food anyway. Their beer selection is rather limited--BMC, Guinness, Harp...the usual macro imports. Only a few micros, as of the last time I stopped in. They have a decent selection of Irish whiskey.

Avoid Kelly's in DT Mpls. Horrible food and a real lackluster selection of brew. Don't let the "Irish" name fool you.
