CBRE report: Minneapolis becoming a hot spot for microbreweries

Minneapolis has become a hub for microbreweries, according to research from CBRE. CBRE reported that since 2011, microbreweries with taprooms have occupied more than 480,500 square feet in the metropolitan Minneapolis area. Credit the 2011 "Surly Law," which gave craft brewers the right to sell their products to consumers onsite. CBRE says that this law resulted in a boom in the number of new microbreweries and an expansion of local, existing ones.
