There are lots of good brewers in Minneapolis/St Paul! They also have an awesome homebrew club, but I can't remember the name of the club at the moment. If you google the homebrew club in the area, I'm sure you can find out when/where they have meetings. I've met some of the local brewers in the Twin City area, and they are a helpful bunch.
