Taproom FAQs

We have Aki’s Pretzels available for sale at the bar. There are also plenty of great restaurants within just a few blocks of the taproom (including MN BBQ Co, which delivers to the taproom!), and we encourage folks to bring food in.

Yep, we’re a dog friendly taproom! That being said, we’re also a friendly dog taproom–your pup needs to be on a leash and be easygoing around humans and other dogs. If your dog is barking a lot, we may ask for you and your dog to step outside.

Yep! All flavors of our Hard Seltzer are gluten free, although they are still made in a facility that processes gluten.

We have gluten-free Hard Seltzer and non-alcoholic beverage options for those who do not drink beer. We also have a wide variety of beer styles available, including some with fruity and tart flavor profiles that may appeal to those who typically opt for cider or wine.

Our taproom is located at 2506 Central Ave NE, right between Recovery Bike Shop and Aki’s Pretzels.

There’s plenty of street parking near the taproom–just make sure to pay attention to parking signs. Metro Transit lines 32 & 10 stop within one block of the taproom and bike racks are available along Central Ave.
