ESTABLISHED IN 1857, REESTABLISHED IN 2017,

WALDMANN BREWERY & WURSTERY IS PROOF AND TRIBUTE TO THE PIONEERING SPIRIT

First opened prior to the Civil War by Bavarian immigrant Anton Waldmann and his wife (Wilhel)Mina, Waldmann is the oldest surviving saloon building in the Twin Cities. Meticulously restored to its frontier grace and simplicity, Waldmann once again welcomes all with the warmth of its wood stoves, lamplight and traditionally-crafted house-made lagers, wursts and other honest fare. Waldmann is a humble, memorable place—full of stories and tradition that just may inspire you to make a few of your own.

IF OUR 1857 GERMAN IMMIGRANT BREWER WOKE UP TODAY, WHAT BEERS WOULD HE MAKE ON OUR MODERN SYSTEM?

We start with classic German styles, use as much traditional malts and noble hop varieties as we can source, then add some heritage-inspired malts and hops for that New World experience. The result—a modern interpretation of classic styles, informed by tradition and place.

Slow food  values and German traditions honored here!

The essential German combination of “Wurst und Bier” is celebrated at Waldmann originating in 1857 and now again in 2017. Crafted with pride and with ingredients that would not be unfamiliar to Anthony Waldmann. “Natural” because that is sensible then and now. “Local” because that was and is the most practical answer.  Our wurst is manufactured on premises by a wurstmacher dedicated to the craft. Veal and pork sourced from Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota.

Music, tours and more.
