Congrats to all of our local beer friends who are winners in City Pages’ Best of the Twin Cities 2007:
Best Take Home Brew: Surly Bender & Furious Psst. City Pages… it’s Brooklyn Center, not park…
Best Beer Selection in a Bar: Muddy Pig
Best Irish Pub: O’Gara’s – As I’ve said before, I think this category needs to go. I’m not against Irish-style bars, per se, but there are only so many combinations of the same dishes, the same 4-6 Irish and English beers and lots of dark wood… I’d much rather see brewpubs get a mention. Oddly enough, this year’s winner covers both categories.
Like ’em, hate ’em… those are the results. Enjoy, and congrats to the winners!
Irish are famous for their cooking. Put it in a pot and boil it for 12 hours til you can drink it with a straw.
Thanks Denis Leary
Seriously though, O’Gara’s over the Local or Dubliner?
I’d pick the Local over O’Gara’s.
Yup, I think I’d probably pick the Local over O’Gara’s too. At least the City Pages’ editors picked the Muddy Pig for best beer selection – the reader’s picked Old Chicago.
Next year we should have a massive campaign to somewhere thoroughly non-Irish voted in. Maybe Barley John’s or something. Seriously.
why is there an Irish Pub category at all?
and not a brewpub?
or “beer bar”?
it’s still “best beer selection in a bar” stuck under the “Sex, Drugs, & Rock & Roll” category…wine selection is “in a restaurant” in the “Restaurant” category…beer? what does that have to do with restaurants? or food?
Sick it under “Sex, Drugs, & Rock’n’Roll”…is it the sex, the drugs, or the rock’n’roll?
Eh, any campaign to change the Reader’s Choice would have to be massive!
Be glad the editors are at least semi-hip…
the “take home beer” category was entirely new….why not just “best local beer”?
glad to see nods to Surly, though…
