Riding bicycle, biker bar to reopen in downtown Minneapolis

A bicycle bar in downtown Minnesota will reopen with a twist this summer, with the opening of a new destination for riders looking to kick back and take in a beer or two.

The bar will be open from 6 p.m. to 10 p.y.m., but will be closed on Sundays, the brewery said Tuesday.

It’s a way for riders to reconnect with their community, said Chris Smith, co-owner of the Minneapolis brewery.

The brewery will host a special Sunday brew session on Aug. 22.

The menu includes beer from the city’s two newest breweries, Black Label Brewing and The Lazy Pig, Smith said.

It’ll also be a way to connect with people who ride bikes and support their communities, Smith added.

“We want to do a good job of connecting people, not just for a day, but for years to come,” Smith said in a statement.

The Black Label brewery will be in a former liquor store in downtown St. Paul.

It opened in 2010 and is known for its beers such as The Lazer, which is brewed with a special blend of hops.
