Hoping to check out a number of these during RBSG in August. Do any of these have tasting rooms and weekday business hours? I know when I was there in late 2011 I was mostly limited to the bars since I was only in town during the week. Obviously places like Rock Bottom and Town Hall were open but it would have been nice to visit Surly and any number of other commercial/industrial type places on the weekend.

Indeed has the best taproom of all the breweries, imo.  There are also tap rooms for Lift Bridge, Steel Toe, 612Brew, Dangerous Man, Fulton, Harriet, and on and on and on.

Maybe they were only open on Saturdays but none of those were open during the week (or in some cases not at all) when I was there. Good to know, and I'll be there on a weekend this time.

Yeah, everything has changed.  Now, they won't all be open all week, so you'll have to check each one's hours.  A lot of them seem to be Wed-Sat.

These guys may settle in the Duluth area or possibly WI.

Ran up to Duluth for the Bent Paddle grand opening and first public tour on Friday.  Cool location with lots of room to grow in the existing space.  Looking forward to them getting the canning line in next month and pumping out cans of their 4 year-round offerings (an IPA, a black ale, a pilsner, and an ESB).  Wish them great luck as Duluth's first taproom.

Another two suppose to be opening soon.  Both in St. Paul close to the same area.

Urban Growler
http://www.urbangrowlerbrewing.com

Sounds like they may be the first taproom to actually have it's own kitchen.  They could be a step ahead of all the other taprooms as if you serve warm food, you can be open under MN law on Sundays.  None of the other taprooms currently serve their own food or warm food.  Really, heating up a pizza in a pizza oven would legally qualify so I don't see why others don't do it.

New Town Hall site!!!!

Beer and bowling are a time-honored combination, and who better to combine them than Town Hall?
Our new sister restaurant, the Town Hall Lanes, is opening at 5019 34th Ave in South Minneapolis!
Grand Opening on Friday, July 19th for award-winning beer, great food, and ten lanes of bowling!

Calendar has been marked  :thumbup:

Will definitely be checking out the Town Hall bowling alley. The other two locations are pretty cool (Town Hall Tap more so than the brewery), and I havent bowled in years.

I'm probably going to check it out this Friday.  I'm sure it will be packed, but so be it.

Planning on doing the same.  Have dinner at Butcher and Boar then girlfriend and I are going to the Twins game (she's an executive for the MN Wild and some lawyer is bringing us out).  Plan on stopping there afterwards.

They have been brewing like crazy to have beer for the opening. It's going to be tough to keep up for 3 locations!

Got to try HammerHeart and Blacklist this weekend at All Pints North.  Both made some good stuff.  Jack Pine had a few good ones too.  Looking forward to giving them all a visit.

Pour Decisions has been in a few places I've stopped in for a brew and food, so far, not impressed by the three I've tried.

Had their berliner weiss at All Pints North and it was really good.  Not impressed with anything else at this point.

Not quite Minnesota but close enough, Aug 4th is the grand opening of Pitchfork Brewing in Hudson, WI.  I hope to check it out.

New Cidery

Hoops' on the challenges of Brewpubs in MN

Saw both of those.  Cidery is opening less than a mile from my place.  Will mean I'm within a mile of 4 breweries and 1 cider now.  Should be cool.

14 distilleries popping up too.  One is going into the same building that NorthGate is moving into in NE.  They already have plans to work together on some very cool collaborations.

Checked out The Freehouse in the North Loop yesterday.  Food was pretty good but not amazing (City Pages and Heavy Table both didn't give them very high marks).  The beer was totally uninspired.  The plainest beer I've had anywhere in town.  If someone said, "I want the plainest, nondescript stout there is.", I'd go with their stout.  Same can be said about the brown ale, IPA, and Kolsch.  I suppose they may be looking to make the Budweiser of craft beer to appeal to as many macro drinkers as they can at their other restaurant locations as selling their own product instead of others means higher profits but the beer certainly isn't going to go over that great with people that enjoy craft beer.

Another one coming to NE Minneapolis this spring.  Bauhaus Brew Labs will be a block away from 612Brew on the same street.

There's this new brewery going up in Minneapolis.


Patio will be in front of the opening to the left.


Fermentation cellar. Just add 600bbl tanks.


Brewhouse will go here.

Based on my experiences, I really don't know that I'll have their beers again except maybe a sample at a fest or something.  If the sample changes my mind, then great, but I'm not paying for a pint that I don't want to drink.

Hammerheart beers are popping up all over town suddenly.

Would you recommend any of these?

Flaming Longship
Hokan's Brown
Jormungandrsblod
Thor's Porter

Probably tastes like nickel piss.     :yes:

Not that I would know from experience.   :bag:

At least that's better than a raccoon ejaculating carbonated vinegar into a log. :mellow:

The Force is what gives a brewer his power. It's an energy field created by yeast. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It converts polysaccharides to ethyl alcohol.

We have worked closely with archaeologists that have uncovered a fossilized raccoon in a log, frozen for eons in mid-stream.
Using a sample from the log, we have recreated what this ancient beverage may have tasted like.

Expect a musty and vinegary barnyard bouquet with a hint of buttery oak from the log.
Available for a limited time on draft and in 750ml bottles.

Can't believe they are distributing.  I barely see their handles around town here.  Their beers are the only ones I consistently pour on the ground at the local festivals.  I once even spit what was in my mouth back into my glass.

Same here. Had 3 beers at the Funk Factory pre-party, Twisted Zweig Berliner was great. 
They were out of beer at the beginning of the Great Taste though :thumbdown:
