Day Block Brewing Company

Day Block, situated on the busy streets of Minneapolis, offers craft beer and a range of great food to wash it down. I opted for a beer and pizza, while others in my party went for items such as an Old Fashioned and a bacon sampler. Day Block’s food is especially noteworthy in that they do their best to source their food locally and responsibly, which is always respectable (and delicious).

I drank a Coffee Porter (Robust Porter, ABV: 5.5%, IBU: 39) and a Frank’s Red Ale, which pays tribute to Frank’s Plumbing, a business that occupied the Day Block building for about forty years (American Amber Ale, ABV: 5.3%, IBU: 25). Surprising myself once again, I loved the porter!

My advice came from our server, Devin, who told me, “Breweries let you be yourself. People come to brewpubs because it’s a communal environment. You can drink a beer or a cocktail, come with friends or just be at the bar alone, and you don’t have to try to be anything other than yourself.”

This attitude is the same reason I want to write these blogs and go on this adventure: to experience the communities of craft beer. Cheers to that, Devin!
