Northbound Smokehouse Brewpub

Map & Directions 2716 E. 38th St.
Minneapolis, MN 55406


City Pages' Description

Northbound Smokehouse and Brewpub--the Twin Cities first new brewpub in over 11 years--offers a new and delicious take on the ancient technique of smoking. Chef Bryce Strickler has created a full menu of house-smoked meat, fish, cheese, and eggs to complement the brewpub's own beers. Start with a round of brews and the Smokehouse platter, which includes smoked cheeses, trout, and salmon. The porketta sandwich, an up-north classic, and the smoked beef sandwich are must-orders. They pair terrifically with Northbound's beers, which include an IPA, smoky porter, and honey wheat, and a rotating cast of unique seasonals. Many of the dishes even incorporate Northbound's beers in the food - and that includes desserts like pumpkin porter cheesecake.

    Best happy hour in the cities in my opinion...3-6pm sun-fri (10-12pm every night) $3 house beers, including an amazing IPA and porter, no brainer. Cheap wines and rails as well i hear, but that's irrelevant to me.

    You must try the massive, deep, and golden waffle battered chicken sandwich. Served on an egg bun with a lily-gilding swipe of garlic-spiked mayo, clear your calendar for this one.

  • Heavy Table on 10/10/12

    Fantastic smoked chicken wings, and the smoked roast beef sandwich will haunt your dreams with its unearthly deliciousness.

  • Heavy Table on 10/10/12

    Their Autumn Ale is delicious, and the Smokehouse Porter is one of the best smoked beers we've tasted.

  • Jason S. on 10/05/12

    $3 pints during happy hour for their ales!

    Crazy busy, no time to wait but will be back. That many people waiting it must be as great as I heard!
