Minneapolis How many beer-related tastings, block parties, or events (including one where the beer's free!) do you think it's appropriate to attend in one weekend? One? Two? Maybe three, tops, right? Below, you'll see a certain men's lifestyle site's found five sweet ones. You can do it!

Thursday, April 17th: Through Saturday, it's barrel-aged beer week at Town Hall's newly re-opened brewery, and everyday at 5pm, they're tapping something special, like GABF silver medalist Twisted Trace, just for you. And anyone else who shows up. Continue Reading

Walnut Studiolo

Saturday, April 19th: This bi-pedal brewery tour starts with a brunch at Day Block, and then stops at Lucid, Steel Toe, and Dangerous Man. But don't worry, these places really aren't too far apart, otherwise this thing'd be... well, dangerous, man.


Saturday, April 19th: Like it when nails get hammered? How about getting that way yourself? Well, the hammerschlagen tournament at Harriet Brewing offers opportunities for both. And it's for a good cause.

Hymie's Vintage Records

Saturday, April 19th: Your local record shop needs your help, so Hymie Records and Pabst Blue Ribbon are helping make your weekend great by putting on a block party with sweet local bands in Seward.

Saturday, April 19th: The Fulton Brewery is putting on an event to show folks how to make rain barrels, which is totally cool, 'cause it helps the environment, but mostly 'cause they're giving you free beer. And a free rain barrel.

4. Dangerous Man Brewing Company 1300 2nd Street NE, Minneapolis, MN 55418

Dangerous Man is our favorite type of gathering spot: great beer and a comfortable, warm atmosphere for groups or chatting up someone new. There are 12 rotating beers on tap behind the reclaimed wood bar that endeavor to cover the four major bases … hoppy, light, dark, and strong. For strong we vote for the malty, 10.4% Belgian Golden Strong and for hoppy the citrusy House IPA is smooth and bitter. There’s no kitchen, so feel free to bring your own food or order from one of the takeout places nearby. If you’re looking to take something home, stop by the growler shop next door for your beer mongering pleasures.

5. Harriet Brewing 3036 Minnehaha Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55406 (Longfellow)

Harriet Brewing is all about traditional European-style beer in this sea of American craft. The brewers produce winning Belgian ales and German lagers and the taproom is host to many events and activities like live music … like any good beer hall, Harriet is all about atmosphere because it’s almost as important as what’s on tap. You will also find a number of popular food trucks lined up outside that you and your dog can enjoy (although we can’t say that there are any pooch trucks).

What began as a homebrewing operation in a one car garage has expanded into a full-blown enterprise. The taproom at Fulton is open every weekend, which is perfect for everyone who doesn't work on the weekend. And if you do work on the weekend, growler sales are also available. It looks like they've thought of everything, because they have!
