4. The Happy Gnome 498 Selby Ave, St. Paul, MN 55102 (Downtown St Paul)

Despite the diminutive name, you’ll want to arrive at this St. Paul bar with a giant-sized appetite, because not only is the 70-strong draft list deep on Midwest favorites and reliably on-point, but the juicy burgers are also a must-try. Better yet -- have that burger and beer on the patio when the Minnesota weather permits, because let’s be honest, there’s no better state to be in between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

5. Devil's Advocate 89 S 10th St, Minneapolis, MN 55403 (Downtown)

40 expertly curated taps, root beer-glazed pork belly, and hands down the best cheesesteak in the Twin Cities? Cha-ching.
