Situated on the waters of Lake Minnetonka and only 20 miles west of Downtown Minneapolis, our destination taproom has it all. As you venture out, enjoy a beautiful meandering drive around the lake, a scenic bike ride along the Dakota Bike Trail, or stunning views of the ninth largest lake via boat as all three modes of transportation are welcomed. In the colder months, trade in the boats & bikes for snowmobiles, snowshoes, and fat tires. Upon arrival, choose to sit on their expansive patio or inside their inviting taproom and enjoy a curated music selection that will enhance the vibes.
Topping the experience off is the beer. The brewery focuses on Lagers, IPAs, and Imperial Stouts with a special emphasis on seasonal beers, and you’re guaranteed to find something you’ll love. You can even play a hidden game of trivia, as all of our beers are named after famous Minnesotans, or people with significant ties to our state.
Did we mention the Beer Bowl? In an ode to Minnesota’s Nordic heritage, Back Channel celebrates the release of fresh IPA’s much like their fellow Vikings…with an ale bowl, also known in the Nordic language as a SKAL. The bowl experience lasts throughout the first week of every IPA release, so there are plenty of bowl opportunities throughout the year. Take a look at their seasonal hours and consider making a visit.
