Minneapolis Is Underrated. Here Are 10 Reasons Why It Shouldn’t Be.
In Minneapolis, the breweries are so good they can change the laws. Prior to 2011, these establishments weren't allowed to sell alcohol onsite, resulting in a subdued beer scene. But local favorite Surly Brewery (pictured above) helped change that, and the Surly Bill of 2011 injected new life into Minneapolis’s craft breweries. Now there are tons of them, alongside burgeoning distilleries like Tattersall. These places also usually sell locally sourced food that’s gourmet yet affordable. Minnesota's Nordic roots can be tasted at the Du Nord distillery; for global flavors, try the food trucks stationed outside 612 Brew.
