Can't beat Kieran's patio on a nice day. Probably have to get there pretty early if you want a table, but plenty of room to stand too. I'm not the biggest fan of their food, but they have plenty of beer options. Also, service has always been pretty good, especially considering how busy they can get.

I usually end up at Cuzzy's. It is a total whole in the wall. Their food is ok, but the usually have $3 PBR before the games as well as other drink specials. If you like cheap dark bars, it's a pretty good one. It's only a few blocks away over on Washington, and it's a quick walk to get to gate #6 by the light rail.
You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

On nice days, I prefer Darby's deck just outside the left field gate. It is far more spacious and less crowded than any of the First Avenue options. On less favorable days, you'll find me at the Depot a lot of times (halfway between my usual parking spot and the ballpark).

I did a story on this for Maple Street Press a few years back. There are a ton of options. One new one is the Fulton Brewery Tap House. It's one block WEST of ballpark (west of the light rail line) at 414 6th ave. S. It's literally the Fulton Brewery, but the open the tap house two hours before home Twins games to two hours after Twins games. It's just beer - $5 for their microbrews. I've always been particular to the old Champps, now Alley Sports Bar. I just love drinking in that alley. Finally, Glueks has somehow become overlooked. Big beers and the best food in the area, if you like comfort food. Their mac n cheese is crazy good.

Check out the Fulton Brewery Tap Room only a block or so away from Target Field. They are open two hours before Twins home games. Note: Due to a some odd city rules they can't open until 11am if its a noon day game. They only serve Fulton Beer, but its straight from the source. They don't sell food in the Tap Room but you can bring food in, which is why there is a NateDogs cart and and gastro truck in their parking lot.
