Friendly staff. Good beer at good prices. Cool environment. Regular live music. The recent addition of food-truck stops has been good for the place. This is one of my go-to places in town and should be a go-to for travelers, too.

We love to come to the Mankato Brewery for a drink or two and also to refill our growlers to take home! Reasonably priced but this is quite a small building so can be crowded at times.

Staff was rude. Only like 1 of their beers. Ok atmosphere. Rustic and industrial. Games like checkers and big jenga. Not much room. Patrons were rude. Wont go back.
