Inbound Brewco Opens in North Loop


The North Loop is quickly becoming the new Northeast when it comes to craft breweries. Fulton has been there for years and Modist just opened in the past couple weeks. Now the folks behind Lucid are entering the market with Inbound Brewco.

Upon first glance the space is very cool. Wooden beams suspended from the ceiling make for a fun space to gather. The first beer I tried was a tasty Apricot Ale that was ridiculously refreshing on a 70 degree day in Minnesota. The Kolsch was nice but not my favorite example of the style, and the Special Bitter was my favorite—most likely because of the toasty notes from the Maris Otter malt.


The feeling of the taproom is that of a skate park. Plywood can be seen throughout the space and the colors were kept to a very simple black and white. The building was previously used to house garbage so it took them a lot of time to get it into shape which had to be frustrating. They will have an outdoor seating area and they also have a private space upstairs. One thing that will set them apart is that they will have live music on the keg stage inside the taproom. It’s definitely worth making the trip, but if your’e looking for the best beer down there, you’ll still find that a block away over at Fulton.

Today, we received word that Lucid Brewing will adopt a new name, North Loop BrewCo. The name is a nod to the company’s new taproom in Minneapolis’ North Loop, Inbound BrewCo.

“We’re excited about our new facility in the North Loop,” says North Loop co-owner Jon Messier. “Since we began our journey into beer, back in 2011, our focus has been about producing a quality product for all to enjoy. By adopting North Loop BrewCo, we can better associate our award winning Lucid beer line-up with the new taproom location.”


The North Loop BrewCo name signifies a change in branding and experience without deviating from what helped to build the brewery over the course of its four years – the people and the beer they brew.


North Loop BrewCo will kick off their new branding efforts with its anniversary ale, Halucidation, a Belgian Triple brewed with local Frontenac Gris grape must. The branding change will continue via its six pack bottles of AIR and FOTO.


Stay tuned for more information.
