Are There Any Twin Cities Brewery Tours?
Most Twin Cities breweries offer behind-the scenes tours on the weekends, so there is no shortage there. Some of the best tours are at Surly Brewing Co. (Tuesdays-Sundays), Summit Brewing (Thursdays-Saturdays), Indeed Brewing Co. (Saturdays), Fulton Brewery (Saturdays) and 612Brew (Sundays; cost is free with a food donation!).
If you’re looking to brewery hop and want to tour several facilities, your best bet is Twin Cities Brewery Tours. They offer public tours Thursday-Sunday and transport you to three different breweries by an “open air fun bus,” then end the evening at a restaurant. However, they have tons of different tours (both public and private), so I would take a good look at the website to see what best suits your interests. Other great options are Bitter Minnesota Brewery Tours, which operates seven days a week and also offers public and private tours, or Hoppy Trolly Craft Brewery Tours Thursday-Sunday.
As far as other culinary tours, Twin Cities Food Tours are offering the Historic Northeast Tour and you hit a bunch of different cuisines—Eastern European, Italian, Tibetan and Greek. Also check out Taste Twin Cities and Renee’s Royal Valet Tours for more options!
