Growing in the heart of this area, is an impressive brewery district worth exploring. This highly walkable part of town, radiating from Central and Broadway out is home to some of the most interesting small breweries in Minneapolis.

Minneapolis, MN 55413
(612) 209-2626
Visit Website

A destination brewery, Dangerous Man beers are only available in the taproom and at the next door takeout Growler Shop.

With a tavern-style taproom in the Solar Arts Building, it’s brick and railroad that define their heart of the city aesthetic while the beers are bold, hoppy, and sometimes sour. Day Tripper is a bitter pale ale that’s surprisingly only 45 IBU and the Wooden Soul sour series continues to showcase a different side to their beers. The feel inside is fun and vibrant, with a working class bent.

2506 Central Ave NE
Minneapolis, MN 55418
(612) 293-5231
Visit Website

The state’s first brewing coop has a community feel; the kind of place where they really will know your name when you walk up to the bar. The beers are bright and varied, from an impressive line-up of sour beers and a stable of German influenced recipes. It’s well-lit and welcoming, barroom meets coffee shop meets art gallery in design.

5. 612 Brew

945 Broadway St NE
Minneapolis, MN 55413
(612) 217-0437

One of the most colorful breweries around, this fantastic space and amphitheater is a hotbed of weekend activity. The Unrated Rye IPA has an entertaining back story (it cannot be Rated R) and the beers are accessible and playful overall, focusing on familiar styles with a reasonable alcohol content.

One of the most glorious patios around, Bauhaus features an impressive flower garden to boot. German meets American craft in beer style, Wonderstuff is a wonderful pilsner and Stargrazer is a roasty and effervescent schwarzbier. The taproom is always lively whether it’s a movie screening, live music, trivia, or just a thrilling vintage video game throwdown.

Insight is a story of legends, and each story reads like the launch of a Dungeons and Dragons campaign. Each of their brews is connected to a global story that have spread and morphed over barroom pints across the world. Twists on traditional beer styles include Hell Chicken is a session summertime pale ale using yuzu juice and Sunken City features a white wine yeast that gives a deeper body to the farmhouse ale style.
