Perhaps thanks to Minnesotans' appreciation for simple, hearty fare done right and the local craft-beer awakening, Twin Citians are going gaga for gastropubs. St. Paul newbie Ward 6 has Minnesota pride aplenty, with only a single selection in its draft lineup lacking a lake-state connection. The East Side eatery gets happy from 4-6 p.m. Monday through Friday, serving $3 pints, rail drinks and wines. Looking to do a little suds sampling? Go the half-pint route at $2 a pop.
