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!
