About Minnesota Then

The Minnesota Then Beer and Brewing History Project is dedicated to documenting the Minnesota's beer and brewing history. We will tell the stories that aren't necessarily found in traditional history books.

Our mission is to help foster dialog within Minnesota communities about our state’s storied past. We aspire to teach as well as learn, and to create an intimate educational experience in an environment welcoming to all.

We are an evolving, living resource that welcomes input about any of the topics we address. If you have something to add – either anecdotal or source-driven – feel free to let us know. Your stories are a welcome addition to our work.
