It seems as if new local breweries are popping up about as fast as the furry creatures in a game of Whac-a-Mole, but you won't hear us complaining. Another promising company, Dangerous Man Brewing
, has finally found suitable space for its craft beer taproom in northeast Minneapolis after a long and storied struggle with the city, reports the Downtown Journal
Brewery owner Rob Miller had to fight tooth and nail to get clearance on his proposal for a new taproom at 1300 Second St. NE, which will eventually accommodate about 80 to 100 customers. Their initial plans were rebuffed because their desired location was too close to a church.

But Miller could not be deterred and spent many months working with the City Council to change the ordinances. In November 2011, after a public hearing, the amendment passed, and Dangerous Man was finally able to sign its lease just last month.
Though the situation with the city of Minneapolis vs. food truck-brewery relationships remains tenuous, Miller says he is working with area restaurants who might do delivery (nearby Maeve's Cafe
, Northeast Social
, the Modern Cafe
, and the Anchor Fish & Chips
all spring to mind as possible partners), but that he also plans to allow customers to bring in their own food.
Like the Fulton taproom before it, Dangerous Man will brew beer and sell pints on site and will have refillable growlers to buy and take home.
Dangerous Man Brewing Company is slated to open in October. Just think of how this will enhance the Pedal Pub's route through Northeast!
