Last weekend most of Minnesota's brewers were en route to Denver for the World Beer Cup. Six medals later, they've grabbed their return flights and are back serving suds to thirsty Minnesotans.
This weekend brings a newly reopened taproom. Excelsior Brewing in, you got it, Excelsior, had a soft open on Thursday night, showing off their remodeled and expanded digs. The space is now open to the public and a grand opening celebration is in the works.
As for beer nightlife, Lift Bridge Brewery is hosting Mean Gene & the Woodticks live in their taproom on Friday from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
