Stub & Herb's beat out the likes of the Muddy Pig and the Happy Gnome to win recognition on BeerAdvocate Magazine's list of the "Top 25 Places on Earth to Have a Pint." The Strib reports that the the U of M bar, which came in at No. 12, was the only Minnesota beer on the list. The issue did give shout-outs to Minnesota elsewhere however:
The Beer Advocate issue also included lists for the Most-Wanted Beers and the All-Time Top Beers on Planet Earth. Surly Darkness and the Town Hall Brewery's Masala Mama India Pale Ale were ranked on both of those lists.
