Some of the best beers in the country, can be found right here in the Twin Cities. Three metro area breweries took home medals from the 2013 Great American Beer Festival.
Beer in Minnesota — it’s a popular thing. But have you ever wondered where that bottle came from? Our state has a nice selection of breweries and, luckily, many of those companies offer tours to their customers to share their history and show how the beer is made and bottled. And, yes, visitors get the opportunity to sample brewery beer!
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.
