The taproom will be closed Tuesday January 19th through Thursday January 21st. We will reopen for patio pints and beer-to-go on Friday January 22nd.

We're excited to welcome you back to our patio and taproom for sit down service! At this time (starting June 10th) we can only operate at 50% capacity on the patio and inside the taproom. We're accepting first-come, first-serve walk-in reservations for our taproom and patio.

Please be patient and kind as we continue to navigate the changing regulations we need to operate under.

Now open in Rochester, MN!

We look forward to welcoming you at Little Thistle Brewing Co. We are a family-owned, local craft brewery and taproom located in Rochester with an emphasis on high-quality craft beer from approachable, easy-drinking beer to beers that are unique and experimental. A little something for everyone.
