With a last name like Brau (German for beer), it only seems predestined for a Southwestern Minnesota family to craft some serious beer. From the tiny town of Lucan (population 220) the brothers Brau birthed their namesake – Brau Brothers Brewing Co. – and they’ve been crafting some excellent suds. Their popularity and growth helped spur a move from Lucan to Marshall, MN, where they’ve opened an impressive taproom. In fact, in 2014, the Star Tribune named Brau Brothers Brewing the best taproom in greater Minnesota. Cheers to that.
Dustin Brau is head brewer for the company that’s dedicated to brewing an all-malt lineup of beers. On top of that, they grow their own hops. Dustin and his brothers (plus dad and family) have some impressive offerings, including the exquisite MooJoos Oatmeal Milk Stout, made with locally sourced milk. Think creamy, chocolate, malty ….yeah, it’s good. It’s really good. And, for those who prefer heavy on the hops, pick up the hop-heavy Sheephead Ale. You’ll thank us.
The Brau Brothers have good beer. Fun names. Here’s what’s brewing:
