But nothing may be more popular now than craft breweries.

Did you know that more Minnesota breweries opened in 2017 than ever before? It's true! A whopping 30 craft breweries opened in the state last year, as opposed to the 17 that opened in 2016 and 19 that opened in both 2015 and 2014. While most of them are located in the Twin Cities, many new breweries are sprouting up across the state. 

It can be a little overwhelming picking one of 130 breweries statewide, but we've put together a short list of 34 hot spots outside the metro to check out. So, grab a drinking buddy, or two, and hit the road! What are you waiting for?

Need MORE beer? No worries! Another terrific listing of Minnesota-made breweries can be found here from the great folks at MNBeer.com. And if you're unable to take to the road as much as you'd like, you can always order a number of these local brews through Haskell's online store.
