14. The Happy Gnome

City: St. Paul, Minn.
Address: 498 Selby Ave.

A good bar to take home to meet the parents, The Happy Gnome is the cleanest place you could ever imagine drinking way too much in (the patio is an especially nice place to never want to leave, weather permitting). A great advocate for more sophisticated readings of the craft (tastings, meet your brewer events, dinner pairings, and Firkin Fest every March). The food menu is not your typical bar fare; instead it's an actual fully realized restaurant, but the 70 taps and 400+ bottles will make the food taste even drunker.
