might be a good place to start your research, if you haven't already.
Not sure what part of the Twin Cities you want to concentrate on. Lots of good brewpubs near downtown Minneapolis, and many in St. Paul. In "Nordeast" (across the river, NE of downtown Mpls.), there are a few good ones close to one another: Dangerous Man, 612 Brew, and Indeed Brewing. Fulton is downtown, not far from Target Field.
Surly just opened its taproom in Brooklyn Center, just a few minutes NW of Mpls.
I work in downtown Mpls., shoot me a PM a day or two in advance and maybe we can meet up for a pint after work.
