The GC stands for Granite City - though not Granite City, Illinois. This chain of brewpubs, with locations in twelve states, opened its first restaurant in Minnesota. All locations share a single brewing facility; fermentation is the only step of the process to occur in the restaurant itself. GC produces four styles of beer - bock, stout, IPA and lager - as well as a rotating seasonal offering. The bock is the standout, with a clear, mildly sweet malt flavor. The menu is long, with many beer-friendly offerings: waffle fries, wings and nachos; burgers, sandwiches and flatbreads.
