Breweries with Patios

There’s only one thing that can make sitting back and sipping a cold, craft brew even better: doing it on a patio! Luckily, breweries with patios aren’t hard to come by in Minneapolis. We love our beer and we love the outdoors so, why not do both?

From rooftops to decks to riverfront sidewalks, Minneapolis has every type of outdoor beverage-sipping setup you can imagine. Get some sunshine on your face and quench your thirst with a delicious local craft beer.

Bauhaus Brew Labs

Bauhaus has an expansive patio with plenty of picnic tables, a rotating food truck, and often concerts, games of bags, and events. Check their calendar to see what they’ve got going on this week.


Located a few blocks from Target Field, Fulton is the perfect spot to grab a beer before the game! Sit out on their deck and enjoy their rotating food truck with one of their signature beers.

Sociable Cider Werks

If you’re more of a cider drinker or looking for a gluten free option, head to Sociable Cider Werks and try their rotating list of hard ciders. Head to one of their picnic tables just outside the taproom to bask in the sun with your cider or flight.

612 Brew

Refreshing beer, plenty of games, and a gorgeous patio…you must be at 612! Sit at any of their tables outside or get competitive with a game of giant Jenga.


Surly is the King of outdoor patios! You’ll find an expansive lawn fit for energetic children, happy dogs and plenty of beer drinkers. Sit at their picnic tables to order food from the restaurant or grab a bench around one of their fire pits.


Overlook the Uptown neighborhood as you sip a brew on LynLake’s rooftop. Order food from their approved restaurant list and eat at one of their picnic tables, or sit around the fire and chat with friends.

The Freehouse

Both a restaurant and a brewery, the Freehouse is a great place to grab a bite and a brew while enjoying their outdoor seating. Open early in the morning and late into the night, Freehouse is a crowd pleaser any time of day.

Day Block Brewing

Located just a few blocks from U.S. Bank Stadium, Day Block Brewery is the perfect spot for before or after that game or concert. One of the few breweries downtown offering food, beer and a full-service bar, Day Block is a fun spot for even the non-beer drinkers. Grab a beverage and head outside to catch some rays! 

La Doña Cervecería

Enjoy La Doña's spacious patio and miniature soccer court! Watch league games, rent the court for yourself, or participate in our pick-up games.


Indeed’s intimate patio is the perfect spot for date night or catching up with friends over great beer. They have a rotating food truck and they also offer flights if you’re feeling indecisive.


While Inbound only has a few tables actually outside, their open concept gives you the best of both worlds. The doors all around the taproom open up, allowing you to feel the breeze and soak up the sun from inside.


With one of the best IPAs in town and a patio with a view of the riverfront, you can’t go wrong with Pryes Brewing! They even serve woodfired pizza as well as a variety of apps all made in-house by Cason Italian Eatery. 

Insight Brewing

This family-friendly brewery has the perfect outdoor patio to work on your tan and sip on some global inspired brews. With plenty of outdoor activities and games for the kids to enjoy and a welcome spot for man's best friend too, you'll want to spend the whole day out on their patio trying out one of their many seasonal beers.


At FINNEGANS, it's not taproom business as usual. You’ll find an inspiring and warm space to enjoy FINNEGANS expanding the portfolio of delicious beers. Try the go-to beers, or branch out with new and limited-edition brews! Get cozy in their giant taproom, or head out to the patio (you can even bring your pup!). Hungry? They've got popcorn and pizza to pair with your beer of choice.
