Twin Cities Brewery Tours


It’s no secret that our brewery scene has exploded. Just this year the Brewers Association ranked us as the No. 10 craft beer state (we have a whopping 50-some breweries, more than double what we had in 2011), and Travel + Leisure put us No. 6 on their list of America’s Best Beer Cities, rising up from No. 15 last year.

With this in mind, Taste Twin Cities has done a really smart, and fun, thing. They’ve taken one of their most popular tours and created a new sister company: Twin Cities Brewery Tours.

You’ll head to three different breweries on the tour, which get switched up every three months. From now through November you’ll make stops at Fulton Brewery in Minneapolis’ North Loop, Indeed Brewing in Northeast Minneapolis, and Poor Decisions Brewering Company in Roseville.

So you can enjoy your tastings without worry about driving or rides, transportation is included in the price of your tour. The bus will pick you up and drop you off at the Hilton in downtown Minneapolis, which would be incredibly convenient if you’re a visitor staying at the hotel. Also included in the price is a group tour at one of the breweries, tastings, light snacks, a t-shirt, and insights into the beer making process. Although it’s extra, at each of these breweries you can purchase a souvenir growler of your favorite blend for later enjoyment.

Tours take place every Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and must be booked in advance. Tickets are $130 per person.
