    Not looking for any type of right-or-wrong commentary here, just wanted to create a list of breweries and stores that sustained damage as an awareness to anyone who may be out beer hunting:

    • Big Top Wine & Spirits (Midway) - Property Damage
    • Broadway Liquor Outlet - Looting, Property Damage
    • Chicago & Lake Liquor - Looting, Property Damage
    • East Lake Liquor- Looting, Property Damage
    • Elevated Beer Wine and Spirits (Minneapolis) - Looting, Property Damage
    • Hi Lake Liquors - Looting, Property Damage
    • Liquor Barrel (West 7th) - Looting, Property Damage
    • Minnehaha Liquor - Extensive Fire Damage, Looting, Property Damage
    • Skol Liquors - Looting, Property Damage
    • Target Wine & Spirits (Midway) - Looting, Property Damage
    • Zipp's Liquors - Looting, Property Damage


    • Eastlake Craft Brewery - Property Damage (?)
    • Urban Forage Winery and Cider House - Looting, Property Damage
    Don't be surprised to see several breweries staying closed indefinitely as well. Surly is delaying their beer garden opening and several others closed early last night like Fair State, Venn, Pryes, and Stacked Deck among others and others are donating proceeds to various causes tied to the current events.

    Du Nord Craft Spirits had significant fire damage and is temporarily closed. Not a brewery but related.

    It's boarded up, but open. I'm not sure what hours.
