    Great Waters' lineup of cask-conditioned ales may be the most underrated gem of a brewing portfolio in the entire Twin Cities. There’s no reason to drink anywhere else before a Wild game. Read more

    Keep in mind, they are unwilling to split your tab because it's just "easier" to put it all on one tab. Easier for who?

    The cask conditioned Blackwatch Oatmeal Stout was voted the Twin Cities Metro Area's "Sexiest Beer", it's pretty sexy, and tasty! The wild rice burger pairs well with it also.
