Walk through beer history in Lowry Hill East, ending with a cold one at LynLake Brewery.
About this Event
Officially, there were no “brew houses” in Lowry Hill East until very recently with the advent of the Herkimer in 1999 and the LynLake Brewery in 2014. However there is a visually rich legacy of Minneapolis brewery empires – four families in particular – across the neighborhood. Join celebrated local historian Kathy Kullburg on a historic walking tour of 8 sites in the neighborhood, homes to brewery pioneers, culminating in a stop at Herkimer and LynLake Brewery for a beer.
Sites include the mansions of the Orths, Glueks, Heinrichs, and Essweins, as well as history of Herkimer and LynLake Breweries.
