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, be amazed by our fall colors, and quench your thirst with a delicious local craft beer.
