  • My first visit to Norseman Distillery was delightful and delicious! The staff, from the owner to the bartenders were super friendly and helpful. My friends loved their cocktails and the food, cooked just feet away from our table, was incredible. I especially loved the salmon on grilled lefse!!! Our friendly waitress was happy to help us with our choices, and made excellent recommendations.
  • Mind-altering mixed drinks and brain-blowing sodas. The environment is super swanky in their spacious warehouse, and the setting is moody and hip. The creativity put into their mixed drinks was far beyond anything I've ever experienced — and had I had a designated driver the night I was there, I would have probably drank myself into a stupor they were that good. And to help sober up, I had one of their handcrafted sodas — also mind-blowing. No regrets and is a must-add to your destination list.
  • The tour is a one room delight, with samples of what each step tastes like in the distilling process. The cocktails are also on point, and all ingredients are house made (because they have to, but still). The flavored rums are really something special.
  • Drinks $9-13 and you will never have a bad drink. A lot of seating space indoors and outdoors, even on a nice day it's great to sit inside because everything is very open and airy. Ourdoor space is covered so if it was raining you would be fine.
  • "We have to produce all of the spirits and liqueurs for our cocktails." My heart sank. The tour had been so much fun, with tastings of the raw materials, some step by step details, and a great round of finished product tasting. Then I ordered a cocktail... and it was amazing! Turns out they can throw together more than a decent rum and a gin or two. Staff were across the board great, answering pesky questions and opening up about their process. A must visit. A note for out of towners: They can only sell you half bottles (as of May 2017), and it's distributed, but it's worth a trip to the source, if just for the vaporwave A E S T H E T I C of the bar menu.

Where to stay in Minneapolis

To stay in the thick of tourist action, choose a hotel in downtown Minneapolis. This area offers many independent and chain hotels, with rooms that range from budget-friendly to high-end. You can also stay close to the area by exploring mid-range hotels just a few blocks from downtown that are set in quieter neighborhoods with fewer tourists. If you have access to a car and don't mind driving to most major attractions, you can consider a good value motel or inn just outside the city.
