Our passion is contagious
Brewing traditions were made to be broken
Back in 2011 when Boom Island rolled out our first kegs, we were Minnesota's only brewery focused exclusively on Belgian-style beers. But we love the world of beer way too much to stop there. Today we're brewing a mind-boggling, pallet-expanding array of Old and New World style beers. Take our cue from one of the world's richest beer cultures, we're always exploring new styles, flavors and techniques.
At Boom Island, we’re not only passionate about beer, we’re big supporters of everything that goes with it. That includes live music, special events, and the Twin Cities’ most popular food trucks. In the summer, we open our doors to an outdoor beer garden. If your favorite sports team is playing, chances are they’re battling it out on our big screen. And if you stop by during one of our special events, you’ll find a marquis tent full of great beer, food, music and more.
An independent brewery
Like many Belgian breweries, Boom Island began as a family business. Kevin is the brewmaster and began the business with his wife Qiuxia (pronounced Choo Sha) in 2011. Even Qiuxia’s parents played a critical role, leaving their home in Chengdu, China, to help construct the first brewery in Minneapolis and fill in as needed during the initial years. Today, we've since moved to Minnetonka, MN and our family has grown to include some of the most friendly, beer obsessed people and dogs you could imagine.
