One of the better breweries in MPLS is Dangerous Man. Once you walk in you will notice the place is full of life, and full of good beer. Dangerous Man offers a variety of beers, which are all reasonably priced from $3-5. The slightly modern place, with its towering columns, provides a rather aesthetically pleasing place to drink as well. The guys at DMB encourage anyone to bring in their own food, claiming to be a BYOF establishment (since they do not offer food). Most importantly, the guys at DMB will only sell their beer at their establishment – so there is literally no other way to find these brews unless you step foot into the micro-brewery. As long as it is not a Monday, make your way down to Dangerous Man Brewing Company for some tasty brews for an affordable price.

Once again this year marks another successful year at the St. Paul summer beer festival. The event featured over 100 breweries and thousands of drunk people breaking glass. After waiting out the initial 20 minute line to enter, the rest of the day went smoothly as we got away rain free with unlimited booze and live music. If you still haven’t been, make sure to mark this one down in your calendar next year (that is, if you like beer of course).
With over 100 breweries, it is always a tough choice deciding which ones to bounce between, because there is no way you are hitting them all. While their were many beers featured from Minnesota, it is a good day to expand your horizon and find out about new upcoming breweries.
New Upcoming favorites: Finch’s Beer Company and Tin Whisker’s Brewing Company. Finch’s beer company is only 3 weeks old and is located in Chicago, IL. With a variety of canned tallboys already for sale, Finch’s is already making a splash into the market; their Fascist Pig was delicious (Imperial Red IPA). Tin Whisker’s is a newly opened brewery out of St. Paul, which already features a solid lineup of brews at their taproom, all of which were on point.
St. Paul Summer Beer Fest Winner: Went out to MPLS’ Dangerous Man. The brewery is not shy of winning, since they just won the 2014 Winter Beer Dabbler.
