Relatively new to the scene, Insight Brewing Company opened their taproom and brewery in late 2014 to outstanding reception. But Insight is about more than just the beer, it’s about the adventure of global brewing and bringing that story back to Minnesota.
Insight offers their products in keg formats, but will soon be producing 16 oz cans and 750 ml bottles for retail sale later in the summer. With the addition of four new 60 bbl fermenters, Insight will be increasing their brewing capacity to 10,000 bbls annually, with the ability to grow to 40,000 bbls in at their current location. Their award winning beers continue to gain recognition in the market, and they plan to add barrel aging and sour programs in the coming year.
