I just wish we had more than one go to Taproom/Brewery for consistently above average beer here in the west metro. The only brewery that fits that description is Back Channel
If one is into IPAs, Steel Toe matches that description. However, I’m not into that style of IPAs, nor do I like the (lack of) atmosphere of the brewery. I’ve HEARD Luce Line is really solid, but I haven’t had the pleasure to try them yet.
While Steel Toe is in a suburb, if you throw a rock moderately hard to the East it’ll land in MPLS.
