After a brief delay, Blue Plate brewpub the Freehouse is officially planning on opening next Monday, December 16. The restaurant—which will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. every day—will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as beers brewed onsite. Located in the North Loop's Loose-Wiles Building, the space boasts walls of exposed brick, exposed ceiling piping, and lots and lots of wood and steel. As for beer-themed decor, there's also the gleaming brew tanks, a ceiling full of keg light fixtures, growlers aplenty, and a bottle cap portrait of former Minnesota congressman Andrew Volstead, who is usually credited with the Prohibition Act.
Eater Minneapolis sent photographer Katie Cannon to shoot the soon-to-open space. Take a tour.
