Minnesota is known as the land of 10,000 lakes but maybe a new slogan should mention the number of breweries and taprooms Minnesota has to offer visitors and locals. In the Minneapolis and Saint Paul metro alone there are 40+ craft breweries for you to pull up to the bar and try a locally brewed beer. Cheers!
Bent Brewstillery, located right here in Roseville, is a craft brewery and small batch distillery. It is the first micro brewery-micro distillery in the state of Minnesota.

Enjoy sporadic food from local food trucks or bring in your own food from a local restaurant.
