I love this place! Don't expect anything fancy, it is a brewery not a restaurant.
I would consider myself a pretty picky beer drinker. I love all the beers but especially love their Haymaker IPA! I think they are also in the process of building a patio area.

This was a great spot to stop on our recent road trip. The servers were happy to provide tastes of the many excellent fresh brews available, and it was fun to see the beer-making equipment from the taproom area. And this shows how great the people there are: we left a bag in the taproom, and they mailed it to us at our house and wouldn't let us pay for it.

We took the tour which was short but interesting and informative. we really enjoyed the seasonal leaf raker beer - a nut brown ale. The samples were generous and enjoyable. When the brewery is open you can come right in and have a beer sitting amongst the brewing tanks. A fun place to visit!

I'm not that into beer tasting but my husband is. He very much enjoyed his beer flight and they have pop (I think they make it) for the kids in a few flavors. You can buy bags of popcorn or pretzels but it's really just a beer tasting room.

So sorry if something went wrong to get a 3-star. We strive for better. As a brewery taproom we like to keep the focus on our beer in a friendly space. Hope to see you and your husband again in the future. ~Tim

Sorry you didn't like the beer options. As a craft brewery we try to be different than the big mass market guys. Not sure if you tried Kato Lager as that's a lighter style beer more for the mass market appeal. I hate to see a one star review, but I understand if our beers are not for you. Maybe next time. As a small local company we rely on our reviews and reputation to help us grow in our community, so seeing this can be a concern for us as a company. Our goal is to grow and make more beer and hire more people in the community we both live in. Thank you for taking time to give us your feedback. If you want to send me anything directly on what we could do better please feel free to shoot me an email at tim@mankatobrewery.com

Since they have redone the inside, the service has suffered. It takes FOREVER to get a beer. They are lucky it is good or we would never go here.

This is where good beer comes to be made. There are two beers - Mankato Original, a light colored beer; and Stickum, a darker heavier malt beer. Both are excellent. Here you can get your growler's filled. It's worth taking a tour of the place. The partners are passionate about what they do and will take the time to explain it all. The plant is a little hard to find so you'll need to Google Map the location.

Stopped here with some friends, and was very impressed! Staff behind the bar were friendly and helpful in making recommendations. Loved the Reigning Purple!

We have visited probably two dozen tap rooms across Minnesota this year and this was one of our favorites for several reasons. First, the staff was polite, excited to present their beers, and knowledgeable about their craft. Second, the tap room was laid out really well with a wrap-around bar and assorted tables and areas to sit while still feeling like your in the midst of the activity. Lastly, excellent beers!

My husband and I frequent the Mankato brewery, especially in the summer when the patio is available. We have small children so inside there is mostly only high top tables that don’t work great for kids. I love how the beer selection is always changing with a few staples, it allows us to try new beers almost every time we are there. Our recent favorite is their Caked Up beer. Yum! I’m also waiting for them to roll out their Nu Teleporter beer this winter.... one of my favorites! Stop by if you’re in the area.
