Who We Are: Urban Growler is the first woman owned microbrewery in Minnesota. Our beer is handcrafted in 10-barrel batches in our 4 vessel steam brewhouse. We make traditional beers like CowBell Cream Ale® and non-traditional ones with a local twist through our Plow to Pint® Series. We sell beer in our taproom and distribute kegs; we are currently expanding our capacity from 1000 bbls per year to 4000 bbls and adding a canning line this month. We aim to make craft beer more approachable for everyone.
