THE ANSWERS YOU MAY BE LOOKING FOR
You’ve got questions and we’ve got answers. If you don’t see the info you need below, give us a shout: email@example.com
We DO refill other breweries’ growlers, but only if they’re already clean and 64oz. We reserve the right to refuse refilling of dirty growlers. We do NOT accept other breweries’ growlers for trade.
We also sell 750mL crowlers. They’re prefilled before we open and available till they’re gone.
The latest we can sell growlers and crowlers is 10 pm, and they all have to be off the premises by then, too. They also need to stay snugly closed until they’re off the premises. That’s all state law, friends.
We don’t lab test all of the beer we make for gluten but the ones that we have tested passed the Celiac-safe standard of 20ppm gluten with flying colors. We’ve had many guests with gluten sensitivities and intolerances drink our beer with no problems at all – However, you will have to consume at your own risk.
To stave off hunger, we do have locally sourced bar snacks from the fine folks at Von Hanson’s Meats! Six flavors of seasoned pretzels and hearty meat sticks are behind the bar.
We’re lucky to be located within delivery distance of many great neighborhood restaurants – ask your friendly beertender for our book of menus, give your restaurant of choice a shout with your order, and let bar staff know what you ordered and from where so we can help facilitate lickety-split delivery right to your table. Don’t forget to request napkins or utensils when you place your order with the restaurant.
Want to bring your own grub? We’re cool with that, too – just make sure you’ve got all the utensils and serving ware you’ll need, ’cause we don’t keep any on hand.
KOMBUCHA: Our friends of Southeast Minneapolis’ own Northstar Kombucha brew small batch seasonal kombucha tea using organic ingredients to create an effervescent probiotic drink, and we’ve got it in 16oz bottles at Venn, just for you. Perfect packaging for here or to go.
COFFEE: Java drinkers celebrate! We’ve got cold-brew coffee by the can.
SODA: We’ve got a selection of 1950’s-style soda pop from Northern Soda, hand-crafted in small batches and sweetened with real cane sugar. Our locally-made line-up includes Root Beer, Cream Soda, Ginger Pop, Pontoon Punch, and Cherry Citrus.
FANCY WATER: Lagunitas Hoppy Refresher is sparkling water that’s zero-alcohol, zero-carb, zero-calorie, and gluten-free, but chock-full of Citra, Equinox, and Centennial hops, as well as a pinch of brewer’s yeast and a dash of magic.
JUICE: Lastly, for the little ones (or the big ones), we’ve got bottled juice as well.
If you plan to come by car, we’ve got 14 reserved spaces in the parking lot just north of our building, clearly marked with Venn Brewing signs. Parking spots are reserved for guests currently in the taproom; if you leave Venn but your car doesn’t, there’s a pretty good chance it’ll get towed. We hate for things to be complicated, but sharing our space with the transit center makes things… interesting.
Let’s be real: sometimes a visit to the taproom is too much fun, and driving home afterward isn’t a safe choice. If you need to make the responsible decision of getting a ride home, please check in with bar staff and let them know the make, model, and color of your car so we can account for it at the end of the night. We do ask that you collect it before noon the next day.
On-street parking is also available in the surrounding neighborhood, but pay attention to the posted parking rules. We love our neighbors, so please be cool to them and respect their property if you’re parked on their street.
Whatever your mode of transportation, please make plans to arrive and depart in a responsible fashion.
SNOW EMERGENCIES & PARKING IN THE VENN LOT:
During a snow emergency, cars left in the lot after Venn has closed WILL get towed – from any spot, no matter what, even if you told the staff you need to leave your car. That one’s beyond our control, friends.
Please keep a close eye on your furry friends and come prepared to take care of their various needs. We want to be able to host our furry friends, but the privilege to do so is dependent upon them being adequately looked after. Be cool. Don’t be a dick.
