A list was released by Stacker of the highest-rated breweries across Minnesota and Rochester, Minnesota breweries got totally ripped off. It lists the top 30 and none of them are in Rochester, which I find hard to believe.

Now I may be a bit biased considering I live in Rochester and these are my spots to go hang out, but come on, our breweries are pretty kick-butt if you ask me. I'm not quite sure how zero of our breweries made the top 30. Little Thistle, LTS, Forager, Thesis. I'm probably missing some but you get the picture.

There are a few breweries that I've been to in the Twin Cities that I would also think should be in the top 30 but didn't make the cut. However, there are a couple of southern Minnesota breweries that DID make the top 30, which is very exciting! Represent!

I haven't checked out Tilion in Cannon Falls yet but it seems like I should since they're the 27th highest-rated brewery in all of Minnesota!

2. Schell's - New Ulm


Just barely missing the top spot is Schell's in New Ulm. My husband and I visited Schell's a couple of summers ago and it's super cool, I would highly recommend it. New Ulm is also just a cool town to visit.
