‘Rails & Ales’ Partner Spotlight
Leading up to our 6th Annual Rails & Ales: Light Rail Brewery Crawl, your local gurus at GetKnit will be doing a bi-weekly partner spotlight with the goal of helping you get to know our featured brewery partners that much better. Whether they are your favorite taproom in the Twin Cities or still on your “must hit” list, we hope you find this new article to be informative and entertaining! For this installment of our partner spotlight we chatted with our friends at Inbound Brew Co. Enjoy…
When did you open to the public?
How do you get inspiration for your beer names?
Inspired by the pieces of the beer itself, the adventures we see you taking that beer on, or something completely out of left field. Those names are then brought to life by our can label designer Aesthetic Apparatus.
Tell us a bit more about your beautiful new outside mural and what inspired it?!
We are thrilled to be the site of Saunders’ first ever large-scale mural work. The piece, spanning the front wall of our building, is Saunders’ bold and colorful interpretation of a brewing system. She drew inspiration from the colors in our can artwork as well as from Eduardo Kobra, the muralist behind downtown Minneapolis’ iconic Bob Dylan mural, which is visible from Inbound’s taproom.
Who at your brewery has the best “brewery beard”?
Beards are cool and all, but our brewer Rob has the best mullet known to Minneapolis.
How many years have you participated in ‘Rails & Ales’?
This will be year #4!
Make up a poem about ‘Rails & Ales’.
Beer is good, beers are better, let’s drink together, you light rail jet-setters.
What other special events do you have at your brewery throughout the week? Or anything really exciting coming up you want to share?
Nershfest is just around the corner, on August 17. Nershfest is a music festival inspired by three friends’ experience at a Bill Nershi concert, and it has grown over the last seven years from their backyard to our very own brewery. We’re closing down the road so we have more space to party, drink beer, eat food, and jam to local bands.
