And on the eighth day God said, "Yeah, OK, let the people of Northeast Mpls drink beer near my church.", and Dangerous Man microbrewery/taphosue was blessedly allowed to open directly across the street from Ss Cyril & Methodius Church. Also, the city specifically rewriting a zoning law for them didn't hurt
It's almost like God created the cavernous, columned former bank specifically for Dangerous's spare, minimalist aesthetic
Their brews' malty taste comes from proprietor Rob Miller actually swimming around in the beer tank! Just kidding! He's really more wading then swimming
They eschew clever names and just refer to their beers -- also available to-go in growlers -- by style, with six to launch including a chocolate milk stout, a cream ale, and their not-too-bitter house IPA
They don't have food, but do invite you to stare at this enormous monkey skull by local artist Peter Geyen whilst enjoying take-out from neighborhood joints like Anchor Fish & Chips and Element Pizza
Eventually, they'll have 15 taps pouring different Dangerous Man suds made with Rob's preexisting recipes from his decade-plus of homebrewing (think a 10% ABV strong Belgian golden ale)
You can also walk out with some sweet merch, like this hand-cobbled Ecuadoran hat -- wear it, and people will see that it is good.
1. Dangerous Man Brewing
1300 2nd Street NE, Minneapolis, MN 55418
As a result of the extreme popularity of its beer lineup, Dangerous Man has limited its growler sales to 20 per day, one per customer. What this means for you, the "per customer", is that you should get to the brewery as early as possible. Preferably before it opens. If you're not into the whole "mass quantities of beer" thing, you can still enjoy it by the pint, or maybe sample some of Dangerous Man's homemade soda. Feel free to bring your own food or order from one of the takeout places nearby.
