Venn Brewing Company, in South Minneapolis just steps from the light rail station, is a fabulous family friendly brewery. 

This is a great spot to camp out on a warmer day with your family. Parking here can be tricky. There is a lot but it is a shared lot with the light rail station and fills quickly. If it is full there is plenty of room on the residential streets nearby. The outdoor patio is huge with lots of picnic tables for seating. It is accessible from the inside area or by gates (another nice plus, it is gated).

Next to the patio is where they have food trucks set up. You can find the calendar of food trucks on the website. Beyond food trucks, they don't offer any other food on site but you can bring your own. Indoors has a huge bar area where you order, tons of tables of different sizes, bathrooms and a huge shelf of family friendly games. The beer menu here has something that everyone can enjoy. From light to dark, hoppy to sour. We opted to order a flight so we could try smaller sample sizes of different beers. I like having that option at breweries. They do have a family friendly bathroom with a changing table here, a huge plus.

Both indoors and outdoors here are kid and dog friendly, lots of families and 4 legged friends here. The menu does include some non alcoholic locally made soda that you can order for the kiddos. Overall, this is such a family friendly atmosphere and a great spot to spend a nice afternoon with your family.

After a visit here, head over to Northbound Smokehouse and grab some delicious food.
