Let’s look to the places close to where we work and live to have the adventures we crave. To #EatGlobal and #BuyLocal. #EastSideEats

We can start in Minnesota’s Capital #StPaul #MN. 

Founded by a bootlegger in 1841, the settler city of St. Paul has a storied history of making and selling alcohol. In 1865 a German immigrant founded the Hamm’s Brewery.

This historical site remains today on St. Paul’s East Side. There are newer occupants of this establishment maintaining its history. The establishment was in use until 1997 and remained unused for several years. In 2014 Saint Paul Brewing was established and took hold in this site. Shortly after that in 2015 11 Wells Distillery was founded and shares the same campus as Saint Paul Brewing. Eleven Wells has now opened a cocktail room at this very site as well. So stop in and #buylocal and join the fun at #EastSideEats.

Looking for a get-away without being able to get away. Come check out Saint Paul Brewing’s spacious Tap room with indoor and outdoor sitting options. 

They serve that cold locally crafted tap beer and if you’re in the mood some Brick Oven Pizza as well. 

Saint Paul Brewing can send you home with a selection of beers with their Crowlers. And right now they are Buy 3, Get 1 Free! 

I recommend their Hidden Passage West IPA. I ordered a crowler to enjoy at home with some pizza. And talk about fresh they even filled my crowlers straight from the tap in front of me!
