Notes: On his 21st birthday, James Ewen received a homebrewing kit from his craft-beer loving older brother, Sean Ewen. This sparked a passion that resulted in years of research to write and brew nearly a hundred unique beer recipes.

James discovered one of his greatest joys in brewing is sharing his beer with others. So he decided to do whatever it takes to open his own brewery and taproom.

Coming full circle in the journey, he partnered with Sean, an experienced entrepreneur, to bring his dream to reality and start the first brewery in the City of Edina, MN.

Open bar with no seating, just an ordering station and a spot to pick up food orders. The taproom is not really built for people to stand around and visit. Sitting is almost required here. A small, less noisy space at the back of the brewery to sit. No real focus on the artwork hanging on the walls that I assume is by local artists that they are selling on commission. Just not a lot of atmosphere that is just a typical commercial space with a brew house.

Small food menu that includes flatbread, hot dogs, nachos, etc. that does not require any actual cooking. Loved the nachos. Beer to go is limited to crowlers. Beer menu at my visit was limited to 8 beers with 3 of them being IPAs. I enjoyed the beer I sampled. Do not like the glassware. Flights are 4 beers with an impractical serving tray. I would ditch that right away. A lot of people ordered food but I question if it is worth it. Had 3 people just prepping and serving plus a couple more busing tables. But there are not a lot of food options in this part of Edina so maybe it will work for them. After my initial visit I would plan to eat before or after visiting the taproom.

This is in a Suburban area of light manufacturing, warehousing, offices, and strip malls and the place looks like a machine shop converted to a brewery. They have food and it is appropriate for a tap room. The place is filled with people who work in nearby businesses, people who patronize local businesses and neighbors. There are also families and people from the local community. You can bring your kids here, get them a soda and a sandwich while you have a beer.

In Edina Industrial Park in a boring part of this park no train tracks no city view just a parking lot. Inside is open with the tanks visible to the right a small open kitchen to the left that serves sandwiches and pizza . About 10 brews on tap with the selection/variety being good,many different styles. The brews were good to ordinary. Food was good had the Reuben. Service was extremely slow, to the point that i was ready to leave with only 2 people in front of me. I stayed but will not return to many other brewery's and this one had a boring vibe with ordinary beer and slow service.
