2911 Hennepin Av.
Uptown’s oldest bar attracts a relatively young crowd. Weeknights are fair game, especially Wednesday’s U.S. draft night when American pints are patriotically $3. But backward-capped bros reign over the upstairs billiard tables on Friday and Saturday nights and the peanut-shell-covered floor in the basement bar feels like an unkempt frat house (albeit with 70-80 taps). Buy your beers by the liter during peak hours. MICHAEL RIETMULDER
