Brew Pubs

Fill with mingled cream and amber
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious visions clamber
Through the chambers of my brain.
Quaintest thoughts -- queerest fancies,
Come to life and fade away:
What care I how time advances?
I am drinking ale today.
-- Edgar Allan Poe

Brew Pubs are establishments that brew & serve on premise (usually with food). I am primarily interested in brew pubs in the Twin Cities area ... or the five state region ... or having international fame.

Also, may I also suggest the pub lists at:
Homebrew archives
Brewpubs around the World
Institute For Brewing Studies' Breweries Around The World Index
Potomac Interactive Corporation's PubCrawler
Beer Travelers Index
Beer Expedition (tm) - North American Breweries
Real Beer Page: Brew Tour

Also, may I suggest a few fine drinking holes in the Twin Cities area.

Or maybe just need a good place to buy some brew for consumption at home.

Please Note, the Ratings are my own personal preference.  Depending on your own personal preferences for malt, hops, body, boldness and balance of flavors, etc., you may be tempted to differ in your opinion.  But that is what makes America great!
