Dangerous Man Brewing Company
will be a destination brewery and tap house in Northeast Minneapolis.
It recently found a home in a warehouse-style brick building that dates back to 1927, according to owner Rob Miller. “We love the area,” he says. “This was the dream, to be in this neighborhood.”
Dangerous Man will fill the ground floor of the two-story building that Spinario Design and Gallery
previously used for storage purposes.
Right now, the place is an empty shell, which has its advantages. “It’s nice to start fresh and clean,” Miller says, adding, “We can build it the way we want it.”
Wide ceilings, open spaces, and big columns characterize the space. Inside, the mechanical and electrical systems will be updated, while plumbing needs to be installed as well.
Basement floors will be reinforced to withstand the load and the walls will get a fresh coat of paint.
The idea is to make it a comfortable hangout, with a fireplace, farm-style tables, couches and chairs, a pool table and darts, TV, and more, he says.
The brewery will have a custom-built bar that features the work of a local artist, while the concrete floor will be polished, with the brewery's logo stained into it.
Further, the brewing tanks and other equipment will be visible from the bar. “We want to make it feel like the building was meant to house a brewery,” he says.
He says the business won’t compete with others in the area. “I hope it brings more traffic to them and is a unique meeting place.”
Dangerous Man will probably be ready to open its doors in October.
All in all, “It’s an exciting time for the beer movement in Minneapolis and Northeast,” he says.
