New Latino brewery in Minneapolis will have a 3-on-3 soccer field

La Doña Cervecería will open later this summer.

Beer and sports go together like Minnesotans and prolonged farewells, and there will be few better places to enjoy both than La Doña Cervecería.

The first Latino brewery in Minnesota is due to open in Minneapolis later this summer, and outside its taproom will be a 1,500-square-foot soccer field designed for 3-on-3 games.

La Doña is already taking sign-ups for co-ed teams and leagues on its website, which you can find here, with competitive league play to happen on Wednesday and Thursday nights, with casual leagues on weekends.

The outdoor, turf-covered box field will be located adjacent to its outdoor patio, providing a sporting spectacle for its taproom drinkers.

La Doña is the brainchild of former Marine Sergio Manancero, the son of Uruguayan immigrants who officially launched his brand at the Taco Tour on Lake Street in 2016.

According to his website, he intends to "leverage La Doña Cervecería’s B-corp status, Latino-influence and heritage to further inspire and empower not only the Latinx of the Twin Cities, but aspiring entrepreneurs of all ethnic backgrounds."

You can find the soon-to-open, 10,000-square foot brewery at 241 Fremont Ave. N., a few blocks west of the International Market Square.

"The large patio space for the soccer field is one of the primary reasons we settled on this location, and it’s exciting to see these aspects of our project finally become tangible," Manancero said in a news release.
