Changes brewing for historic Minn. creamery

Author:

A 100-year-old creamery building in downtown Victoria, about 25 miles southwest of Minneapolis, could be the future home of a new microbrewery in Minnesota, the Chaska Herald reports.

John Hayes and Dan Norton want to open Enki Brewing in the historic building. It would include a taproom and an outdoor beer garden overlooking Stieger Lake.

The newspaper says the Victoria Planning Commission will review the permit proposal and have a public hearing next Tuesday. If the project is approved by the City Council, the microbrewery could open for business this summer.

The Victoria Creamery dates back to 1897, however it was demolished and rebuilt 20 years later.
