ANNOUNCING MINNEAPOLIS BREWERY 612BREW

Who isn’t happy for more news about great Twin Cities beers? And now, a new contender is edging closer to launch of the first brewery and taproom worthy of the classic area code — 612Brew Minneapolis.

On this auspicious date, 6.12.12, 612Brew announces that it has signed a lease at the corner of Central and Broadway in Northeast Minneapolis. The brewery plans to open its taproom and have growlers available by late fall; and be liquor-store-ready within a year.

612Brew will launch with two beers: “SIX,” a sessionable American pale ale; and “Rated R,” a spicy and hoppy Rye IPA. The label will also introduce a summer seasonal beer, a tribute to Gilligan’s Island: the “Mary Ann” — a German-style lager featuring (wait for it) freshly grated ginger. There will be taproom and growler-only beers, such as “Zero Hour,” an American black ale, available to patrons who visit the brewery.

612Brew will be located at 945 Broadway St., the anchor tenant in the historic building The Broadway. This landmark building — recently purchased by Peter Remes, who restored the Van Buren building in Northeast and the Icehouse building in South Minneapolis — features exposed brick and timber along with polished concrete floors, an outdoor patio and a rain garden, creating a perfect atmosphere for the brewery. The Broadway, represented by Mark Krogh of Java Properties, is currently undergoing a full restoration.
