Ever since the “Surly Bill” was passed in 2011, allowing Minnesota breweries to serve pints on location, our state’s tap room and craft brewing culture has exploded. I love beer, so I’m doing something I’ve wanted to do for a long time: I’m visiting all of the breweries in the Twin Cities* and documenting my experience as I go. I plan to visit them alphabetically off of this list I created, which is a combination of this list from The Growler and the Brewcation Destinations pamphlet from the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild. I will attempt to update the list as breweries close and open, but if you see any mistakes or corrections, please let me know. Cheers!
*I am including Bald Man Brewing, Bent Brewstillery, LTD Brewing, Steel Toe, and Wicked Wort even though they are not technically located in Minneapolis or St. Paul, because they are in very near surrounding suburbs. I am also excluding Finnegans and Pryes, which are brewed in the area but do not appear to have tap rooms. If I’m wrong on that, please let me know.
