Minnesota Craft Brewer's GuildMinnesota has a long, diverse history in the brewing industry. At one time, it boasted over 100 small breweries that serviced their local communities. Although the numbers have dwindled, a number of craft breweries have sprung up once again serving fresh, locally produced beer. The Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild was founded in 2000 to promote Minnesota breweries, create an open line of communication between brewers, and showcase local craft beer at our events throughout the year. • In our opinion, the best beer is the freshest beer you can buy, and locally produced beer will always be freshest. • The Guild promotes Minnesota’s brewing industry by sponsoring festivals and special events that showcase the talent of our brewers. • We strive to educate the public that consuming beer is a pleasure that should be enjoyed in moderation. • Finally, it is our mission to ensure that our rich brewing tradition will be carried on for future generations to enjoy. Whether you are a native Minnesotan, a new Minnesotan, or are simply enjoying everything our beautiful state has to offer, we invite you to stop by one of our craft-breweries and enjoy a fresh pint of locally produced beer.
