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.
