Day 19: Craft Beer, Outside the Cities

Mankato Brewery brings the taproom trend outside the Metro.

Mankato Brewery
The Twin Cities taproom trend isn’t slowing down anytime soon (we’ve got a guide, in case you’re losing track of all of the addresses), but sometimes you need a break from city brews. Skip town to visit the Mankato Brewery and its taproom, and you’ll be glad you made the trip. Dip into the Organ Grinder, an amber ale with an inviting toasty scent perfect for a cool early summer evening, and grab a six-pack of Mankato Original for your fridge after a long day in the sun. 1119 Center St., North Mankato, 507-386-2337, mankatobrewery.com
