Posted by Beau Farrell on Jun 24, 2015 12:41:00 PM


Summer in Minnesota: hot sun, cool lake, cold beer. That’s the feeling you get when you pop open a beer from Lucid Brewing out of Minnetonka. Lucid joined the list of Minnesota’s craft beers after Eric Biermann and Jon Messier had a “Lucid” thought: “Let’s throw away the ties and the corporate ladders.  Let’s start a craft beer brewery!”  We’re pretty sure it wasn’t as easy as it sounds, but the beer they produce is pretty easy drinking.

And, it didn’t’ take long for the accolades to come in. The Star Tribune named Lucid Brewing Best New Brewery in 2013, and we’re glad we at Haskell’s have the opportunity to share their beer with you.
