Thrillist Sips: Boro Brew
Hudson, Wisconsin's only gastropub and beer bar. Boasting 25 taps with more on the way, Stone Tap's also got some solid growler pours.
Named one of the 100 best places on planet Earth to have a beer by Draft Magazine, The Muddy Pig's got a ridiculous list of draft beers, many of which are local, plus a huge food menu that runs the gamut from small plates and salads to sandwiches and full-on entrees.
With more than 30 reasonably priced brews on draught, 30-foot oak bar, and gastropub-quality food, Republic will find its way into your heart quicker than its gastropub-quality food.
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.
