Organic Chicken Taco At Cafe Twenty-Eight

Posted by Beer Blogger | Food Pictures | Posted on September 22nd, 2011

I dropped in at the end of my Friday afternoon bike ride for a quick lunch at Cafe Twenty-Eight.  The Organic Chicken Taco in Salsa Verde is amazing.  If that doesn’t look good, see a doctor because something is wrong with you.  Organic chicken, La Perla corn tortilla, romaine lettuce, black olives, cilantro, sour cream, queso fresco and guacamole make for a killer combo.  Paired with an imperial pint of SurlyFest on this cool late summer day it was just the thing I needed for that last couple miles of the bike ride home.  Stop by for lunch or dinner and have one.  I’m sure I’ll be back again soon to enjoy another.

Muddy Waters Minneapolis

Posted by Beer Blogger | Food Pictures, Reviews | Posted on September 2nd, 2011

Muddy Waters recently moved and has reopened with a full food menu and great craft beer selection in addition to their great coffee house beverages and snacks of the previous spot.  It’s located directly across the street from The Herkimer just 1/2 a block north of Lake Street on Lyndale Ave in Uptown.  The front windows open up in the summer months and the inside has a nice airy feel to it.  A good sized bar with the beer taps clearly displayed for the imbibers.  Along the side of the building is a small alleyway converted for outside seating that catches the direct sun only a couple hours a day and has nice overhead strings of light for the evening.

Town Hall Brewery Mango Shredded Chicken Sandwich

Posted by Beer Blogger | Food Pictures | Posted on September 1st, 2011

Looking for something good to go with that awesome brew you’re having at Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery?  The Mango Shredded Chicken sandwich is just the thing.  Piled high with juicy shredded chicken and cheese sauce with a side of fresh mango salsa to top it off.  Town Hall has a great menu with lots of delicious options but this is the one I always come back to time after time.  Try it with a glass of Mango Mama.

Town Hall Brewery Steak Sandwich

One of the daily specials at Town Hall Brewery, this steak sandwich was piled high with juicy steak, red peppers, cheese, and sautéed onions on a hoagie bun.  Their fries are always perfectly crispy.  Delicious but too much for me to eat in one sitting.  Perfect with a hoppy brew on tap or a Mango Mama.

Mango Shredded Chicken On The Town Hall Brewery Patio

Posted by Beer Blogger | Food Pictures | Posted on August 15th, 2011

Stopped down at Town Hall Brewery on Saturday for Free Beer Hour.  Pint Club members drink free from 4-5pm every Saturday.  After enjoying a couple beers with some of the other regulars out on their great patio, I met up with friends and former coworkers for one of their birthdays.  We enjoyed some more beer and food.  Always my favorite, I ordered the Mango Shredded Chicken sandwich.  Wonderful shredded chicken with melted cheese and a side of fresh mango salsa to top it off on a toasted bun.  Paired it with a Hop Index for a killer dinner.  Get down there and have the sandwich with a couple pub brews on the patio while summer is still here.

Cafe Twenty-Eight Fireman’s Breakfast

Posted by Beer Blogger | Beer Pictures, Food Pictures | Posted on August 8th, 2011

What’s the best brunch in town?  Cafe Twenty-Eight for sure.  My favorite is the Fireman’s Breakfast which consists of two farm fresh organic eggs from Larry Schultz’s farm, home fries, sour dough toast and I go with the organic chicken sausage also from Larry Schultz’s farm.  And there’s no better drink to enjoy with it than Surly Coffee Bender (well except on the rare occasion they have Moe’s Bender available).  You can drop into Coffee & Tea Limited next-door to Cafe Twenty-Eight and buy the Guatemalan blend thats used to make Coffee Bender.

Smoked Brisket Nachos with double the meat at Stanley's Bar Room in NorthEast Minneapolis.

If you’re at Stanley’s Bar Room in northeast Minneapolis the Smoked Brisket Nachos are a must. Make sure to get them with double meat for a couple bucks more. Late night happy hour brings 1/2 off all appetizers.
