We are the first women owned — and brewed — microbrewery in the Twin Cities. We sell craft beer and food onsite in the brewery taproom and kegs offsite to Metro area retailers.For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Saint Paul holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Urban Growler Brewing Company and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Our brews are handcrafted in 10-barrel batches under the close supervision of Head Brewer and Founder, Deb Loch. Our "Plow to Pint™" Series emphasizes creating brews with a unique local twist. We're partnering with local growers to bring their harvest, such as Minnesota wild rice, honey, raspberries, and pumpkins (to name a few) into UGBC specialty beers.
Our mission is to make craft beer more approachable to everyone, especially women, through diverse and appealing product offerings, education, and customer service, all in a welcoming urban environment.
Urban Growler Brewing Company Reviews
They’ve got some of the BEST food and great vegetarian/vegan options. Vegan chili, quinoa bowl, beyond burgers, and tots are my favorites :) Love everything about UG! Definitely a place to visit if... more »
We have eaten here a few times, and have NEVER had a bad experience. Having been here for several fundraisers (they are extremely supportive of the community), we finally had the chance to visit with.... more »
I absolutely love their beer and their food! They have a dog friendly patio that is great in the summers. Only giving 4 instead of 5 stars because they started serving sauce on the side with their chicken wings, rather than having the wing/drummy itself coated in the sauce. It’s way more work (and less satisfying) trying to dip the wing in sauce, then ranch or blue cheese. I wish they would go back to serving them the old way, but it’s still a great place and I’d highly recommend!
Overpriced basic food. Seriously, don't order a burger here. If you tried one of these burgers and then were asked how much you would expect to pay for this kind of burger you would probably guess $6 at most, but I've had better burgers at that price. I paid $16 for a 1/3lb (6oz) bacon cheeseburger here! I'm ok with that price, but at that price I expect quality like Red Cow or an upscale restaurant and 1/2lb of meat, definitely not some low grade diner quality burger. They didn't ask how I wanted my burger cooked and served it just past well done, so even if they used good meat you wouldn't know. On top of that they charged $2 for a basic spinach side salad and served it on a 4 inch wide rectangle plate. Is this some kind of joke? I'd like to see anyone eat a salad off a narrow plate and not spill any on the table. 2 stars because of the beer.
