Best Craft Breweries (That Serve Food) Near Lakeville, MN

Craft breweries are a fun destination when travelling and a great way to get out of the house a little closer to home. Minnesota has a ton of craft breweries scattered all over the state.  I have been to a lot of them because I've tried to make it to all of the Minnesota breweries in the Minnesota Hop Passport .  The Hop Passport is a small book which is filled with 100 craft breweries all throughout the state.
