Just awesome. So sad this place is closing down - we had the charred broccoli which was surprisingly Asian in flavor, the lamb and falafel (so savory but light), and the pork chop (which will forever be present in my dreams).

Really no point in leaving this review as their run has ended. But Brewers table was always outstanding. Thanks to the staff for many memorable meals. If the next incarnation is half as good, I will be delighted.

I heard that it was closing so I made a point of it to get there before it did, and man was it worth it! I've never had such good meal with a beer before, and I got 4 of them! I'm sad to see it go!

I had heard great things, so I don't know what happened. Portions were criminally small (beer and food). Food was good, but NOT great. Based on the food in the beer hall, I was expecting much better... especially for $70. I know they are closing, so I hope the quality is not based on the imminent closing. It's closing soon so you probably can't get a reservation anyways, but if you do... skip it.

John A provided excellent service. We came for dinner because we found out the Brewer's Table was closing. We were NOT disappointed with the food, beer pairings or service. All were better then I expected. I hope you'll open something up with more reasonably priced so I'll come back more often! (I will come back for the tour and to hang out downstairs.)

I LOVED the Dilly Hell and would love that to be a seasonal regular option. It was delish.

The food was fantastic and the beer paired well with everything on the tasting menu. The restaurant was a bit louder than we expected for the price point, though. I would've liked a quieter environment.

Brewer's Table was outstanding! My only regret is that I waited until 2 weeks before they are scheduled to close down for good before I finally came out to try this amazing fine dining with craft beer pairing concept at Surly. This place will be missed!

The food was amazing and the beer pairings were perfect compliments to the food. The staff was friendly and courteous. I'm glad we got the chance to experience Brewer's Table before August 5. Looking forward to trying Chef Guzman's next venture.

Why are you closing! I mean, I have only dined twice, but still. Personally I could not afford to eat at the Brewers Table very often, but it was nice knowing that they were there, serving incredible dishes. They will be missed.

The octopus was unusually tender with just the right amount of heat. The salsify was also very subtle. The venison was as good as venison goes. The only thing that was underwhelming was the tres leches--I expecting a dessert creamier and sweeter.

The food was absolutely amazing and paired well with Surly's beer - I even found myself liking a few brews and foods I wouldn't normally have liked much less attempted to eat! I am extremely disappointed that Brewer's Table is closing - this was such a unique and fun experience and I would love to do it again!!

Loud and therefore difficult to hear server and other staff members as they explained and answered food questions. Quieted down after nine. I would not want to be there on a weekend. Food was delicious and beautifully plated, but loss of hearing would weigh heavily in the decision to return. I pity there staff having to work with the constant din.

Everything about Brewer's Table was wonderful. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable in describing the food, as well as the beer. The Octopus and Venison were our favorites. The Tuna was slightly lacking in flavor, but still a good choice. The best part was the beer pairings! I just wish I could buy Dilly Hell at the liquor store! Coming back next week...

The food was fantastic. I was very happy to get to eat there before it closes. We're pretty sure the waiter messed up one of our beer pairings, which really shouldn't happen when it's this expensive. Other than that, it was a great evening. We even got a special cupcake for someone celebrating their birthday!

The food is so carefully thought out and paired so perfectly with Surly beers that it blew my mind. The dishes all had so much flavor. We got to try things that we haven't had before. We got to try bet that isn't on regular sale. Our wait staff was very attentive and accommodating to my girlfriend's food allergies as well.

The food was excellent. Started with the octopus which was so tender and beautifully plated. Followed with the mussel, venison and fois gras for dessert. Again beautiful dishes that were all full of flavor. The beer pairing was also artfully done. We are so happy we were able to eat here before they close.

This was our farewell dinner at the famous Brewer's Table, as they are closing soon.

We have enjoyed the food and beer there on a number of occasions and we will miss the fine cuisine, excellent service and truly unique atmosphere.

Get in while you can! I don't know why this is going away. It's a great idea and I there isn't another place in Minneapolis where you can find this.

Surly's concept for the Brewers Table is a partnership of their amazing beers with a curated gourmet menu. We did a 4 course tasting menu at $70 per person. Each course was paired with a Surly beer. The food was extremely well done. The kitchen and front of house seamed to have a great flow and the food came out promptly and perfectly cooked. It all flowed very well. If you're worried about walking away hungry, don't be. For a fine dining tasting menu it's subtle without being skimpy. The staff was great. Very well trained, very well organized and very knowledgeable. We felt special and were well taken care of.

I already have a second reservation.
