Minnesota may be known for its famous "hot dishes," but we take even more pride in our craft beer produced in local microbreweries. Take a look at these four places for excellent craft beer right around the corner from our Springs at South Broadway luxury apartment community!
LTS Brewing Company was established in 2013, but has quickly become a local favorite. Their easy ordering menu ensures that you gain a little knowledge behind the beer before ordering, and they always pay special attention to the craftsmanship of each beer. Instead of catering their own food, LTS Brewing allows you to bring your own or have your favorite local shop deliver!
Imagine sitting at a table surrounded by galleries of art, while listening to live music and sipping on your favorite local ale. That's the experience you’ll have at Forager Brewery located in downtown Rochester’s Kutzky Neighborhood. With more than 17 beers to choose from there is certainly one available to suit anyone’s taste. This restaurant not only has high quality beer, but also prides itself on its flavorful food.
This is the hot spot if you’re looking for a great place to have a beer, appetizer, and dessert. The Thirsty Belgian has a rotating menu of seven beers on tap, while the food menu has a unique flare not seen at many other breweries. From their hot pretzels to their Belgian cupcakes, this brewery has something the whole family can enjoy.
Whether you’re looking for a great night out or beer to go, Grand Rounds Brew Pub is the place to go. They offer growlers and “crowlers” filled with your choice of specialty craft beer, which you can take home. Events are common at this brewery, so you can sit back and enjoy a beer and cheese testing or take part in one of their upcoming events!
