Food truck frenzy at Insight Brewing this Saturday

The only thing multiplying faster than breweries right now is food trucks. And while trying out all those new breweries takes time, it’s decidedly harder to track down and try each and every food truck.

So where can you get a fresh beer, a cupcake, sushi, falafel, and empanadas without having to move your car?

On Saturday from noon to 7 p.m. at Insight Brewing. With 22 trucks lined up in the parking lot, guests can eat and eat, then step into the spacious taproom for a cool refreshment and a seat while digesting.

Of course, beer will also be available outside from the brewery’s pour trailer, and there will be games, DJs, and special beers available for the food truck rally, sponsored by the MN Food Truck Association.

Insight, which regularly hosts food trucks, notes that about half of the 22 visiting trucks are first-timers to the brewery, so it’s a chance for Insight regulars to get something new. “We're personally excited to host Sushi Daruma and A Cupcake Social because we have quite a few sushi fans who work at the brewery and we also tend to have a bit of a sweet tooth,” says the brewery’s Brian Berge, “But that's just our personal preferences. All the trucks are awesome and there's going to be something for everyone.”

While the official festivities are scheduled until 7 p.m., the taproom is open until midnight on Saturdays so the party will continue into the night. The parking lot will be occupied by the rally, so check out their website closer to the event for details on nearby available parking. “You'd be surprised where you can actually park on a Saturday,” Berge adds, “but probably the best place will be right on Hennepin Avenue.”
