56 Brewing is a microbrewery and taproom in Northeast Minneapolis. We’re a collaborative group of beer enthusiasts who value the city, the community, the people and the establishments as a place to work, live, bike, connect, play, grow and have fun.

Our motto is “we make beer we like to drink”. Our goal is quality, consistency, and the ability to rotate beer styles efficiently. We strive to use only locally sourced ingredients whenever possible, always in our seasonal variations and infusions.
Our focus is on community and beer lovers alike, highlighting NE Minneapolis and the brewery culture.


Our Space:

We have a spacious and inviting taproom, open patio facing the large community gardens, pinball, games and many events during the week including live Jazz every Sunday.  We are family friendly and yes, dog friendly (as long as they use their inside voices)!
