After going to the Town Hall Brewery, my cousin Dan and I went to The Herkimer, a hip place in Uptown, which is an area just south of downtown that's packed with restaurants and bars. Their website claims that the place has a 1920s atmosphere, but it felt more upscale, trendy, urban to me.
I had a Daily Pils, obviously a pilsner style concoction that wasn't bad. We also had a big, delicious plate of sweet potato fries. Some of their other beers include Handy's Lager, Red Flyer Marzen, High Point Dunkel among many others. Check out their website for details.
Address: 2922 Lyndale Ave S.
Directions: Off of Lake St. in Uptown

My cousin Dan and I decided to have a boys night out on the Friday after Thanksgiving and we ended up at the Town Hall. It's a great local microbrewery located in the cool Seven Corners (near the U of M in Minneapolis). We had a couple appetizers and ordered the beer sampler and were surprised to see that it came with 8 beers each! All this for 7 dollars! Not bad. Granted the beers are not large pints, but you have to do at least 4 or 5 arm curls to knock one back and after we finished we were feeling it. The sampler included a nice variety of brews and the food was good too.
The interior is interesting with a bar on one side and the restaurant on the other side of the kitchen. By 11pm, when we left, the bar side was packed with young people.
Address: 1430 Washington Ave. S.

First Avenue & 7th Street Entry (or just, 'Prince's club')
Yes, this is the club that Prince (or whatever his name is) made famous in the movie 'Purple Rain.' This is a legendary place that's been around for 30 years and it has the potential to draw all of the most famous names in the music business.

Okay, all you Brits who might be in town visiting, here's the place for you to go get a decent pint and watch some Premiere League football. NOT a quiet spot, but always crowded with interesting people.
