Limited street parking is available immediately in front of Waldmann on Smith Avenue, between the alley to the north and Goodrich Street to the south. Waldmann also has a dedicated six-stall parking lot approximately 250 feet west of our building down the alley, which can be accessed from West 7th Street where it intersects with Douglas Street (it's immediately adjacent to Bad Weather's lot). Ample bike racks are available to the south of our building, or in the parking lot down the alley.
ESTABLISHED IN 1857, REESTABLISHED IN 2017, WALDMANN BREWERY & WURSTERY IN SAINT PAUL, MINNESOTA IS PROOF OF AND TRIBUTE TO THE PIONEERING SPIRIT.
Named after its original owner, Anthony Waldmann, our brewery and wurstery is housed in the oldest surviving commercial building in the Twin Cities—a limestone saloon built in the fall of 1857. Beginning this fall, Waldmann will once again welcome everyone with the warmth of wood fire and lamplight. From hand-hewn woodwork to period engravings, every detail reflects the care and craftsmanship at the soul of this restored pre-Civil War original—including, of course, the beer itself. Using old-world horizontal fermenting techniques and noble and heritage hops, the Waldmann brewing team is making traditional German-style lagers with an approach to recipes and brewing processes that stay true to the building’s 1850s heritage. Pull up an authentic steamboat chair and choose from one of several enduring styles, like pilsner, dunkel and kolsch. Our beer is the perfect complement to tasty bites from the wurstery kitchen, including freshly made sausages, heritage wheat pretzels, and limestone potatoes roasted under a slab of Platteville bedrock. We pride ourselves in carrying on German-inspired cooking traditions using locally sourced ingredients, whenever possible.
Waldmann is a humble, memorable place—full of stories and traditions that just may inspire you to make a few of your own.
