Like most small-scale breweries, Wooden Ship started as a group of friends brewing on a 5-gallon system in garage. Since those humble days of “garage nights” and tastings with friends, we have a 7-barrel commercial brewhouse in linden hill, Southwest Minneapolis with room to grow and create some of the most interesting beers we can imagine.
Our 50-person taproom is a beautiful little space that is inviting, intimate, and well-suited for our little neighborhood. With big windows [looking both outside and into our production area] and a garage door, there is no lack of light inside. Our bar is made of local reclaimed ash and was built by our good friend andy at Rovan Handcrafted, a regular at our old garage nights. Attached to the taproom is an open-air patio with custom picnic tables and cafe lights, perfect for an evening brew after a long day.
