One of the last places I stopped during the #MNPHO2018 was Take 16 Brewing.
Housed in a former auto parts store and auto repair shop, Luverne’s first-ever brewery is named for old Highway 16 that connected Detroit to Yellowstone National Park.
The highway was established in 1926 and was the main traffic route west and ran through Luverne before the Interstate system was built.
Take 16 began as a conversation between friends in July 2012, and later was funded by 60 community investors and a volunteer board of directors.
It has since grown to include beers that pay homage to the area like Luverne Lager, and a special brew released to celebrate the MN Governer’s Pheasant Opener, the Pheasant Phestbier.
If you are in the area and are looking for modern meets small-town nostalgia, stop in to Take 16.
