Among one of the newer breweries in town, Lake Monster, on Vandalia in St. Paul, brings a clever approach to the state it calls home. Inviting patrons to “Sink into the depths...if you dare,” Lake Monster was created with the essence of curiosity at the forefront. Whether you believe in the Loch Ness Monster, the Pepie Monster a bit closer to home or the monster under your bed, the environment is one for discussing these topics and more over a good pint.
On the beer list you’ll find one of the best pilsners from a craft brewery in the state in the form of the Calhoun Claw Pilsener. A full flavored beer, it incorporates Czech and American hops that goes down smooth. It’s the type of golden suds we actually like.
One you should try is their nitro milk stout known as Murmur. Nitrogenation an absolute must on this beer, it’s an absolute favorite of ours and any time we’re in the area with someone new we like to pull in for a pint of this stuff. A proper introduction to craft beer in the Twin Cities for any neophyte.
And you can do it almost any time. Lake Monster is one of the few taprooms that is open every single day of the week.
Want a beer on Monday? Lake Monster knows you do and they deliver.
It’s also tucked just off of exit 237 on 94 East which makes it greatly accessible no matter where you’re traveling to.
Stop in for one, try a dish from one of their amazing food trucks that rotate in or stick around with friends because the only thing you dare not do, is miss this place.
