Fernweh – the feeling or sense that you have finally arrived home walking into a place you’ve never been before and could not have described before arrival.

Utepils is a Norwegian word that encapsulates “the longing and anticipation for the first beer enjoyed in the sunshine.” As Minnesotans, especially after this last winter, we know that feeling of wishing the time to hibernate was over. The time to step out with a good beer in hand to celebrate spring and renewal of life. It’s time to Utepils!


This is an idyllic spot that features the natural world, and welcomes you along with your friends and family to share both time and a beer together. There is a sense of comfort, relaxation, and conviviality among friends, and not-yet-friends. Our taproom creates a sense of activity scaled to number of patrons, and thus offering the ability to host private events such as garden weddings upon the banks of the creek, or ski parties in winter.


An onsite gift shop allows you to purchase high quality logo merchandise that incorporates our belief in tradition and enduring classics, along with wallet friendly T-shirts, etc.
