Seek out a new go-to brew and learn about Saint Paul’s hoppy past. New breweries springing up around St. Paul are a powerful testament to today’s fascination with the sudsy stuff, but St. Paul’s first brewery was opened in 1849 by German immigrant Anthony Yoerg. Today, remnants of St. Paul’s historic brewing past include the imposing old Hamm’s and Schmidt breweries. This meandering three hour bus tour features samples, conversation and hidden gems along the way.

Cocktail rooms and high end mixology are trends matched only by our current thirst for microbrews. Booze and hooch have a rich history in the Twin Cities, including legacy brands like Phillips, founded in 1912; and Minnesota 13, a high quality hooch beloved throughout the Mid-west during Prohibition. Today’s microdistilleries are growing quickly, with local upstarts 11Wells and Du Nord opening cocktail rooms this year. Hop on the bus and bring your ID for a tour of the twin cities’ boozy past and future, samples included!
