Best taproom of all

Great choice of beers, wines, and spirits, yummy foods, and awesome atmosphere. Been to a number of taprooms and beer bars, but 7 Minks tops them all. Be sure to check out Low Bar on the lower level, if you prefer spirits.

What a selection of awesome craft brews!! Even though not a drinker, I can appreciate a well chosen draught list and recommend a stop for beer snobs to check this place out. Great menu, phenomenal food on many levels. My burger had a great caramelized onion and complimented perfect med rare yet tasty charred edges-WOW! My wife loves the Mac-n-cheddar,... More

We go here before heading down to the low bar. The selections of beers and food are great. Its always busy and the staff is very friendly.. I would recommend coming early cause seats are limited due to big group gatherings. nothing bad to say about this place. good hangout zone

The place was packed at 2:30 in the afternoon and 2 bar staff and 2 floor staff handled the rush and did a remarkable job! Highly recommend!

A very fun place for families during the day and no kids at night! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable of beer in general. The food is pretty good, too, but on the pricey side for a tap room. The pizzas are pretty good, but the sauce is a bit salty. The pretzel bites work and so do both types... More

They're usually crowded and will probably be noisy. But the number of beers, ales, porters and stouts is almost unheard of. The food is particularly well done. Creative, well prepared and each is worth consideration. Kinda gives you an excuse to return often.

I am not one for craft beer, but was asked to check out 7 monks. I am glad I did! For me the best part was the knowledge of beer by the staff, and the willingness to let the customer try a sample before ordering - this makes a difference for a Miller Light drinker! I enjoyed a fine German... More

Stopped in for a beer and ordered the pretzel bites and bacon wrapped dates. The dates were average and pretzel were just not even that. Didn't go there to eat and doubt if I will, stick to the beer.

A great find for craft beer and good food. Try dates and meat and cheese board to start things off and go over the top with their Monk and Cheese perfectly browned with bread crumbs under the broiler. Lively bar scene and friendly service. Good spot for the after work crowd or a dinner.
