Outside? A beautiful patio with original brick walls, green landscaping, and even more rustic warehouse touches. It’s an impressive sight sure to woo any local or out-of-towner alike.

The rotating taps here consistently have delicious options across the entire tasting spectrum. Fans of everything from chocolate milk stouts to light fruit cobbler are sure to find something they like here.

Looking to eat and drink? It’s hard to go wrong with Eastlake. That’s because when it comes to food, Eastlake has a serious advantage.

Anything from sushi, pizza, gyros, pad thai, burgers, or vegan options can be ordered to-go and brought right into the brewery.

Fair State is one of Minnesota’s member-owned breweries. And we’ve got to imagine that includes quite a few proud owners since the beer here is fantastic. In fact, if we had to choose, our staff would probably name Fair State as our consistently favorite beer in the Twin Cities. Everything we’ve tried here from the Pils (German Pilsener) to the Mirror Universe (Hazy IPA) to the legendary Roselle (Hibiscus Sour) has blown us away. The taproom is understated, and the vibe here evokes thoughts of a trendy coffee shop more so than one of the best breweries in the state. But no matter; we’d drink this stuff in an alley if that was the only place to score it. Fair State is that legit.

If a classic Irish pub were to mix with a state-of-the-art brewery taproom, you’d have Finnegan’s. Dark wood-paneled bars meet views of the hundred gallon brewing tanks. And in true Minnesota microbrewery style, there’s a huge patio that opens up when the weather’s nice. Grab yourself their micro take on an Irish Ale, and you’ll start planning your return trip for the St. Paddy’s day party.

Inbound is another brewery that sits near Target Field, although with a totally different vibe than say, the nearby Fulton Brewery. Inbound is a large industrial space, with towering ceilings, exposed duct work, and a live music stage that can really get pumping on weekends. The beer here seems to rotate quite frequently, which has it’s pros and cons. It’s always fun to try something new, but there’s some seriously fantastic drinks that inevitably get cycled like, like their season German Hefeweizen. #BringItBack!

Indeed, we love you… indeed. Indeed is a true local’s favorite. In part, that’s from their impressive collection of year-round flagships across the whole palate spectrum – like their IPAs, Lagers, and Sours – but also their seasonal releases, which have developed a cult following for every season. In the Summer, there’s the easy-drinking Shenanigans wheat beer. In the Fall, the Yamma Jamma (RIP). The Winter? Stir Crazy Porter. And by Spring, there’s always some sort of fruit sour to thaw out and welcome the warmer weather.

Although it’s still got the feel of an undiscovered secret, Insight Brewing seems to have a made a name for itself in liquor shops all over the state.

With classics like An Obstruction on the Toll Way, The Wisdom of Old One Eye, and The Return Voyage of Banshee Cutter, you might feel like you climbed out of a Tolkien novel while placing your order. It’s all part of the charm. So take a journey to this adventure-themed brewery, where delicious brews and good times await.

Minneapolis has a lot of breweries, but one brewery type the city didn’t have, until now? Una cerveceria Mexicana. That’s all been fixed with the recent opening of La Dona. And we’re happy to report La Dona includes everything we hoped to see from a Mexican microbrewery. Delicous craft takes on Mexican lagers? Check. Refreshing Micheladas? Check. Weekly salsa dancing, Spanish/English conversation clubs, and an outdoor soccer field? Can’t say that was on our list, but it’s still pretty awesome to see!

LynLake Brewery is kind of that brewery we always forget is there. Not because it isn’t popular. On the contrary, this big space can find itself absolutely packed with Uptown youngin’s and hipsters ready to party. No, we forget about it only because it doesn’t feel all that much like a craft brewery, and instead, more like a hopping bar that also happens to serve microbrews. For the uptown neighborhood, it couldn’t be a more perfect fit.

Sorry to bust any bubbles, but Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery isn’t actually in a town hall. But no worries! They still serve great beer. And who can complain about great beer? Town Hall specializes in Cask Ales, but they’ve also got a wide selection for any drinker. There’s a sizable food menu too, but you’re here for the beer, remember? Now do your civic duty, and get to sipping!

Sitting in the shadow of Target Field and neighboring Minneapolis microbrew pioneer, Fulton Brewery, Modist is the new kid on the block. Who’s coming out swinging!

What’s there to say about Surly? Minnesota’s entire taproom scene could possibly be credited to them, since the bill allowing Minnesota breweries to serve pints onsite is literally called the Surly Bill. Since then, Minnesota’s entire microbrewery scene has exploded, although Surly’s remained firmly in the lead that whole time. Today, Surly remains far and away Minneapolis’s biggest taproom. (And the state’s too, for that matter.) In fact, everything about Surly is big. A big taproom. A big fanbase. (Who’s known to camp out at liquor stores for the annual release of its Russian Imperial Stout) And most important of all, big flavor on all of their 26 taps available daily. If you want to experience Minneapolis’s most popular brewery, you owe it to yourself to find a way to Surly.

In the world of Minneapolis breweries, Venn sits in South Minneapolis, far outside the clusters of Downtown or Northeast breweries. That said, this little South Minneapolis spot has a hugely popular neighborhood following. On any given night, you’re likely to find a hefty crowd in this large, spacious taproom, all enjoying any one of Venn’s rotating taps. Speaking of which, get it while it’s good, because Venn’s experimentation-friendly brewers have shunned the “flagship beer” model, and instead brew batches of whatever they fancy.

When it comes to the explosion of breweries near downtown St. Paul, Bad Weather is, in many ways, a pioneer. The brewery’s revitalization of a humble industrial building along St. Paul’s exploding West 7th Street arguably revitalized an entire neighborhood. One delicious Amber Windvane at a time! Today, Bad Weather leads the pack as one of St. Paul’s most popular breweries. On any given day at the Brewery, you’re likely to find a packed taproom, a bustling patio, and just for a good measure… a delicious smelling food truck. That’s because strangely enough, Bad Weather is one of the best places to go anytime there’s good weather, thanks to the taproom’s massive garage doors, which they’re never shy about opening up during patio season.

Clutch Brewing lurks in the rafters of St. Paul’s Keg and Case Market. For the unfamiliar, Keg and Case is an awesome indoor market built in the legendary Schmidt Brewery’s keg house.

The whole “taproom” wraps around the upper catwalks of the market, so you can grab a pint and look down at all the happenings in the market below.

Sometimes, you just have to tip your cap to an early pioneer. In the scene of St. Paul microbreweries, it’s hard to get more O.G. than Summit Brewing. With a history dating back to 1986, Summit’s been a craft brewery since before that was even a thing. Today, Summit has grown into one of Minnesota’s largest craft breweries, shipping their legendary Sagas and Extra Pale Ales all over the country. And all those shipments still originate from their St. Paul taproom. And while that taproom no longer offers their borderline dangerous tours with far too many free samples (RIP) it still makes for an awesome spot to check out some of Minnesota’s most popular beers.

There’s a lot of breweries across the cities. There’s not a lot of “pour your own” pilot facilities. That title is claimed by The Lab. This “pilot facility” was founded to showcase up and coming recipes from independent brewers and small business owners. The goal being to get feedback from customers, who are free to pour as much as a full pint glass or as little as tiny taste. In a crowded brewery scene, it’s a cool angle!

West St. Paul’s lone brewery is holding down the fort for residents across the river. As a result, you’ll find that Wabasha has the unmistakable feel of a cozy neighborhood pub. That’s thanks to a loyal following of Wabasha fans, who collectively help create a neighborhood atmosphere that you can’t fake. It’s an authentic and welcome change of pace from the growing “micro” brewery scene at so many other mega taprooms.

Yoerg brewery is technically the oldest brewery in the Twin Cities. It’s located on somewhat of a brewery island in the unexpected East St. Paul, but no matter, this spot is worth the drive! From the cast iron spiral staircase leading to a quaint and cute upstairs sitting area, to the true-to-the-era early 1900s pre-prohibition beer recipes, all topped with a fantastic selection of rare and difficult to find German imports on tap, Yoerg is without question of the most unique breweries in the Twin Cities.

Frequent food trucks. Can Can Wonderland is in the basement. There is nothing like starting or ending a brewery visit with some tipsy mini golf in one of the craziest courses anywhere!
