This is in the ground floor of a brand new mixed use building and it shares a parking lot with the adjacent light rail stop and the condos and apartments in and next to the building. Parking is scarce. The building is clean and new with cement, cement block, exposed ceiling, and wood topped tables. The crowd is mixed and family friendly - I have seen young couples with children, retired men hanging out for the evening, business types, neighbors, and people traveling in from the light rail. The vibe is friendly and comfortable and the beer is good.

its hard to believe that more breweries can still be opening up in the twin cities and be successful, the market is as saturated as anywhere in terms of total producers, and it just seems like we are getting close to carrying capacity. that said, this place is pretty cool and i can see them doing really well, its south of minneapolis along a major transit route and surrounded by some newish looking housing units, a built in audience. the space is clean and bright and new, although not overly unique to me, but a nice long bar with a view to a brand new looking brew house in the back, more capacity than i anticipated, they must be planning to go pretty big. they had a nice selection of beers, including some really ambitious styles, sahti and sours and such, but i found even those to be a little safe, like they werent quite willing to take any real risks with their beers. the execution though was excellent from top to bottom, well designed and professionally made beers, i had no quality issues at all. the service was excellent as well, young and energetic and friendly. this is a no frills modern brewery, doing a nice job across a big range of styles, and starting out well ahead of the curve. well worth checking out. venn means friend in swedish or other nordic language they informed me, cool name for the place!

Right on the Light rail @46th street station. Newly built within a luxury apartment complex. Clean lines inside with 2 garage doors that open to an outdoor patio, everything is clean (with the brewery visible behind the bar) and perfect except for the beer. Its all just average +. The IPA and APA were the best. This brewery will do well because of little competition in the area. We did have a good time service was good with a nice variety of styles to try with flights available. Its dog/kid friendly with food trucks, i would go back again just for fun but not for the brew so much.

Located in a newly constructed building next to light rail and Hiawatha Ave. Clean modern d├ęcor. Excellent sound system. Lots of windows for incoming light. Offers seating at tables, the bar, and counters at the windows (also outside when the weather is warm enough). Next door parking lot offers limited parking spots (requires validated parking passes from Venn). Good sight lines into the brewery. Many beer selections. Good service.
