    A gem in a crowd of craft beer breweries. If you're trying to hit all the NE breweries put this stop somewhere in the middle. The cider is great and is a welcome change from beer beer beer. -- Nate Eul via Foursquare

    This lake as tons to do. Walking, running, enjoying the scenic views plus a lot more. Just be prepared. It is a busy lake especially in the summer -- Lynn Studeny via Foursquare

    Pretty limited beer list (4 standards + limited release seasonal), but everything they have on tap is imminently quaffable. Great atmosphere with a moderately sized tap room, but a huge covered patio. -- Joe Spirk via Foursquare

    Try the single hop IPA with a pizza. If you use a twins ticket stub for the free beer remember to tip! -- Al Giraud-Isaacson via Foursquare

    The house beers at this new North Loop restaurant will set you back a reasonable $6/pint, and the all-day all-night features some tasty-sounding bites like bulgogi riblets and bison tartare. -- Eater via Foursquare

    Swing here for the "Sweet Child of Vine," Fulton's version of an IPA is "balanced, complex, and approachable," deriving its taste from Simcoe and Glacier hops. -- Thrillist via Foursquare

    A pretty hipster spot but don't let that fool you...the beer is unreal. Had the red rooibos vanilla, chocolate milk stout, and cream ale. Not usually a stout fan but this is damn good. -- Anna K via Foursquare

    Voted Best Brewpub by City Pages in 2012! Everything about this place works. The casual atmosphere is nice, the patio is great in the summer, & the menu offers wide selection of standard brewpub fare -- City Pages via Foursquare

    The lake was donated to Minneapolis in 1885. There's an "elf house" carved into the base of an ash tree. For years one could leave a letter for the elf supposedly living there & sometimes get a reply. -- HISTORY via Foursquare

    Grab a growler of your favorite beer! Growlers are available Monday - Saturday 11am - 10pm. Sorry, no growler sales on Sundays...yet. -- Allyce Mohs via Foursquare

    Voted Best Bike Trail by City Pages in 2012! A stunning trip always, the path runs under a lush canopy of trees beneath the Mississippi bluffs, entering Fort Snelling state park. Its a genuine escape. -- City Pages via Foursquare
