German style lagers . . . - Minneapolis
The Herkimer: German style lagers . . . Eating / Drinking Review

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.

Now that's a sampler - Minneapolis
Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery: Now that's a sampler Eating / Drinking Review

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.
