As beer-loving Midwesterners, it should come as no surprise that countless DIY brewers have opened their own breweries and taprooms all over the Cities. Whether you’re into light pilsners, thick coffee stouts, or Indian Pale Ales, you most definitely don’t want to be caught hanging out at the bar with a Bud Light. From major players like Surly, Schell's, and Grain Belt, to smaller craft breweries like Fulton, Dangerous Man, and 612Brew, we treat our beers like we treat our children -- with love, kindness, and a special seat at the dinner table on Christmas. Even our major league sports stadiums have begun offering local beers during games. And we don’t just love to drink beer, we also love to talk about it. Visit any taproom in the area and prepare yourself to be cornered into a conversation about flavors, brewing techniques, and where to buy the rarest brews.
