This past Saturday, Boom Island Brewing's taproom had its grand opening in North Minneapolis. According to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, the taproom seats 49 with an additional 23 seats on a back patio for warmer months. The Belgian style brewery moved locations earlier in January; the new space is more than quadruple the size of its original 750 square foot location, only about five blocks away on North 2nd Street. Husband and wife owners Kevin and Qiuxia Welch now have the ability to double their production from about 1,000 to 2,000 barrels annually in the new space. Boom Island currently has their beer selections in about 20 bars and 100 liquor stores throughout Minnesota.
The tap room's regular hours begin Wednesday, February 5th: Wednesday through Friday from 4-9 p.m. and Saturdays from 1-9 p.m.
