Ryan Anderson (that's me!) is the editor & founder of MNBeer. Much has changed since the fall of 2005 and I'm proud to have been a part of it all. Sometime I'll tell you about my grand theory that links craft brewing to punk rock. Just ask.

Drink Minnesota Beer Posters

I’ve decided to do a limited run of my take on a “Keep Minnesota Brewing” poster. Let me know if you’re interested. The print will be 18″ x 24″ on a heavy matte paper. I’ll plan to have them drop-shipped from the printer and go directly to you.

This fine piece of swag featured a gigantic “Hopisota” surrounded by bottle caps featuring cities that are home to Minnesota breweries. $30 shipped.

Breweries: feel free to drop me a line with custom requests. (i.e. your logo “starred or capped” on its place in Hopisota.

 

Beer Magic with Dan from Utepils

An excellent illustration of the crisis that breweries in Minnesota are dealing with right now. Call your state representatives today and ask them to help support Minnesota breweries!

Breweries in Minnesota have been near and dear to my heart for the past 15+ years. If the Minnesota legislature doesn’t lend a hand, it’s very realistic to think that we’ll lose some great breweries. Let’s do this!

 

Covid 19 and Minnesota Breweries, Brewpubs, Bars, etc.

Fun times, eh? Whether you’re staying in and working on slowly cleaning out your beer reserves or venturing out for a crowler to go, please be sure to check brewery/brewpub/bar social media accounts before going out. There have been a lot of changes with schedules, growler/crowler sales, and whatnot.

If you’re staying in – we respect your judgement. If you’re headed out, please wash your hands, practice social distancing, and follow CDC suggestions. And if you can, please support our local breweries, brewpubs, and bars by buying growlers, crowlers, merch and gift cards as available.

ONE Fermentery Grand Opening Saturday

Days after I fully revamped the Minnesota Brewery list, the announcement came that ONE Fermentery and Taproom would be celebrating their Grand Opening this Saturday, November 16th from noon-10pm at their new brewpub in the North Loop located at 618 North 5th Street in Minneapolis. Expect a variety of house-brewed beers as well as a curated cocktail, wine, and guest-beer menu.

ONE Fermentery and Taproom is a project borne of a couple of recognizable faces in the Minnesota beer scene, Ramsay Louder (Dangerous Man, New Holland Brewing) and Joe Alton (The Growler) as well as partner Sally Schmidt. No doubt Dangerous Man fans will be excited to see what Lauder and Alton have up their sleeves! If you didn’t find your way into their soft opening Monday evening, be sure to check them out this weekend or sometime soon!
