OMNI Brewing: Beer is Better Here
No visit to Minneapolis Northwest would be complete without a stop to one of the best breweries around: OMNI Brewing in Maple Grove.
Just about two years old, OMNI has become a staple of the community. When you walk in you feel like you’re hanging out at a friend’s house, all the fun, none of the pretention.
Whether you just enjoy a good beer with friends or are a beer connoisseur, there is a brew for you at OMNI. Tried and true (and available year-round) classics like Lake Day and Omnipotent are guaranteed to quench your thirst and keep you asking for more. They also happen to have amazing seasonals, so make sure to ask what they have when you stop in (because you NEED to stop in).
OMNI stands apart from other breweries in more ways than one. For starters, they run on solar power! In one year they have generated enough energy to power 255 sixty-watt bulbs for one year of use at 8 hours a day. The total CO2 offset equals 805 trees and the total energy generated equals 3,624 gallons of gas saved. That’s impressive for any business, let alone a still-new one.
OMNI also believes in giving back to their community. Within their first year of business they have started a volunteer initiative called OMNI Doing Co., a volunteer group that meets to do good in the community. You get to hang out with other volunteers and enjoy OMNI beer in the taproom when you’re done (that alone is worth it). Not many businesses make it their year one goals to help the environment and the community. You are being socially responsible when you choose OMNI.
Whether you’re in town for vacation, business, or you’re a local tourist, OMNI Brewing has to top your list of places to visit. They offer tours and are even available for corporate functions.
