There is an air of humility about this under-the-radar St. Louis Park brewery that is refreshing in the often-bombastic craft-beer world. Founder and head brewer Jason Schoneman is not in it to be the biggest and baddest. His pride lies in running a successful business, supporting his family and employees, and making the best beer he knows how. And for the past five years he has quietly brewed some of the best beer in the state. Size 7 is arguably Minnesota’s finest IPA. From the light-bodied Provider Blond Ale to the rich, black Dissent Dark Ale or Before the Dawn black barleywine, you can’t go wrong with any of Steel Toe’s award-winning brews. 4848 W. 35th St., St. Louis Park, 952-955-9965, steeltoebrewing.com
