612Brew: A preview of the new Northeast taproom, opening Wednesday
A room with a view, the brewery at the new 612Brew
The local brew boom continues with another brewery opening its doors this week. Before the crowds form at this sweet spot for sipping, we were given a tour and a taste of not just the beer but the food 612Brew will soon be serving.
The building is just off Broadway Street and Central Avenue in Northeast Park, Minneapolis. It's tucked off the busy intersection and below street level. When the weather warms up, an expanded green space will be available for lounging, complete with giant bricks reclaimed from the historic Metropolitan building. It's a little slice of lost Twin Cities (find out more about that here ). The taproom's clear garage door will roll back and allow guests to enjoy the warmer months. It's nice to imagine that it won't be long before those days return.
