Norah Kleven

In light of statewide closures, some of Minneapolis’ best breweries have taken steps to offer alcoholic beverages to-go and by delivery. 

Some students have happily been taking advantage of this development.  

University of Minnesota senior Sally Frandrup said she has placed multiple orders at local breweries during quarantine. 

“It’s just a fun thing to get out a little bit, still support small businesses and keep having great craft beer,” she said. “I’m glad they’re doing it.” 

Here are the takeout and delivery beer options closest to campus. 

Insight Brewing

Insight has been offering to-go orders for the five years since they opened, but in light of COVID-19, they introduced a beer delivery option in mid-March. 

The menu offers two size options: 64-ounce glass growlers and 750-milliliter crowler cans. Growlers can be returned for $3 off your next growler purchase or a pint drink ticket, valid when the brewery reopens. 

Delivery is available on orders of more than $20 placed within a 7-mile radius of the brewery. 

To ensure same-day delivery, be sure to place your order an hour before close. 

Hours: Sunday-Thursday, 12-6 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 12-8 p.m.
