Beer crawl

Plenty of bars and breweries are planned around the Central Corridor light-rail line

It will soon be possible to go "brewery hopping" using the upcoming Central Corridor light-rail line in the Twin Cities. Surly Brewing Co. plans a large "destination brewery" near Highway 280 and University Avenue. Urban Growler Brewing Co. plans a 6,200-squarefoot space at 2325 Endicott St., and nearby will be another brewery, Bang Brewing Co. at 2320 Capp Road. All of these breweries  and many bars in the Twin Cities  will be within reasonable walking distance of a Central Corridor station.

There are benefits to this besides entertainment. With the light-rail line so close, drunken revelers who live or stay near another stop along the line  including business travelers  will have another option for reaching their beds safely.
