TheBrewer’s Table offers a chef-driven experience that aims to build on the movement of bringing the pint to the plate — by pairing exceptional food with exemplary beer. On a tour of Surly Brewing Co. our guides will give you the back story of how Surly became Surly while taking you through our brewhouse, fermentation cellar and packaging hall.

A giant indoor mini-golf, each hole designed and commissioned by an artist from around the world. A fantastic bar with unique cocktails. A cereal-milkshake bar for kids (pick your fav cereal and they make a shake out of it for you, Count Chocula anyone?), a really fun boardwalk with vintage pinball and other games.

a locally owned, friendly neighborhood cafe, pub, and bakery Named after St. Augustine of Hippo, a patron saint of Brewers, Augustine’s features 40 craft beers on tap with many Minnesota breweries proudly represented. The menu, as well as the decor, is inspired by St. Augustine’s Mediterranean homeland (Hippo is an ancient town in what is now Algeria). After more than a year in the making and with the contributions of many talented people, Augustine’s is appreciative and ready to be a part of St. Paul’s Union Park neighborhood. We hope you enjoy what we’ve done with the old laundromat. http://augustinesmn.com
