Boom Island Brewing Company and tap room is located just north of downtown Minneapolis. Inspired by several trips to Belgium, Boom Island opened its doors in 2011 and has been serving up fresh, locally made, unfiltered and 100% bottle-conditioned Belgian style beer ever since. Never stop exploring.
The MN Brewery Running Series will join us Saturday July 18th as a kickstart to our second day of Boom Days 2015! That means it’s time to register and prepare for a day of adventure, fun, and of course, BEER!
After the 5K run, stick around for live music, food trucks, Cuvée de Boom, and more!
This Asian inspired dish, crafted by Boom Island’s own Qiuxia Welch is sure to please! With a mild spice and savory flavor, this delicious tofu meal will delight traditional meat-eaters and vegetarians alike! Pair with our Thoprock IPA for the full flavor experience!
