Minnesota is famous for a few things: our awesome music scene, hockey, and never winning a Super Bowl (hardee har har har.) In my opinion, something else we SHOULD be famous for is our remarkable craft beer scene.

I’ve seen a good portion of the globe in 25 years (England, France, Wales, and the majority of The United States) and I can honestly say that Minnesota’s craft beer scene is 2nd to none.

There’s no shortage of awesome breweries and local brands around. One of the more popular breweries – Bad Habit – has recently announced that it will be moving locations. The popular St. Joseph brewery is currently in the process of moving into the old St. Joseph City Hall.

The reason being that they are looking to expand and produce even more beer. Their current establishment is 8,000 square feet and their new establishment will house 40,000 square feet. Wow! That is quite an upgrade.

The currently produce roughly 600 barrels of beer a year, but with their coming upgrade they’re hoping to shell out around 1,000 barrels. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how their new establishment turns out.
