This letter explains changes we have made to our taproom that you may find disruptive.
We have transitioned exclusively to CROWLER and bottle to-go service
This transition is in alignment with current Governor Walz’s executive order regarding restaurants, bars, and breweries. We are committed to following evolving Minnesota Department of Health guidelines to provide a safe taproom environment for any services we offer in the weeks to come.

We further encourage you not to visit our taproom if you are at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19 due to age or serious chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, or lung disease (see Table A).
