Roundhouse Brewery

Located in the historic Northern Pacific Center on Brainerd’s eastside, the Roundhouse Brewery takes its name from the railroad building with a circular or semicircular shape used by railroads for servicing and storing locomotives. The taproom includes the exposed brick and historic look that is part of the Clock Tower, once headquarters to the Northern Pacific Railroad.
The decor incorporates the history of the building, classic lamps, and old photos. Even the beers like the Cowcatcher Ale, and Spike Driver Oatmeal Stout, all pay homage to central Minnesota’s rich railroad culture and history. I highly recommend stopping in for a beer, on-tap Nitro coffee. Root beer or lemonade and staying for a game of cards or to hear the amazing live music.
