Best Beers In The Twin Cities

I was born and raised in Minnesota. So, I may be a little biased when it comes to my thoughts on our local beer. That being said, we have outstanding breweries that produce a wide-array of great tasting beer. From light lagers to dark stouts, we Minnesotans are gifted with great tasting brews. Believe me, when I travel far from Minnesota, one of the things I miss are the solid selections of beer that we get to choose from! That might be weird, but it is true.
