    No brewpub in the works?

    A brewpub or taproom would be nice.
  4. It's illegal in MN for a packaging brewery (i.e. Summit) to own or operate a brewpub (i.e. a restaurant). Rumor has it that Summit will start selling pints and tasters at the brewery soon, but they still won't be able to sell growlers or packaged beer out of the brewery. If you think the law is stupid then get in touch with your legislators and try to change it! The taproom bill was a start, but MN is still in the stone age compared to states like CO, OR and CA when it comes to alcoholic beverage laws.

    Isn't the new Surly brewery going to have food?
  7. hopefully. if they have food on par with cafe 28 (R.I.P.) that would rule so hard.

  8. The Summit folks will be at Lift Bridge sometime in the coming weeks to see how LBB does business with their taproom.
