About 56 Brewing
At 56 Brewing, we take diversity, equity, and inclusion seriously. We are committed to building a team and environment with a variety of backgrounds and views. We strive to be a place where people can gather and feel included and valued, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. Our goal is to inspire awareness and encourage others to embrace each other's uniqueness. Together we have the power to make a difference and create a world that is equitable for all. 

For us, craft beer is brewed to strengthen community. It's brewed to host a new conversation. It's brewed for everyone, and it pairs best with intentional actions. 

From Minneapolis to the world:

We're 56 Brewing, and we're crafting community one beer at a time.

About Micah and Joe
Hey there!  We're Micah and Joe, two college buddies who met ages ago and bonded over our love for art, science and beer.  Fast forward to 2015, and we opened up 56 Brewing in NE Minneapolis.  After conquering outer space, we're now back on earth brewing up some seriously out-of-this-world beer.  Join us on this cosmic journey!  #UnfilteredFruityObject #56Brewing #DrinkAcre
