Vandals tag Minneapolis taproom with 'death threats' and 'phallic symbols'

A craft brewery in Minneapolis' North Loop was targeted by vandals – and their exploits were caught on security cameras.

The video shared on Facebook by Inbound Brewco, on N. 5th St., shows three males and a female – thought to be juveniles – outside the taproom on Monday night.

Two of the boys are thought to have tagged the brewery off-camera, and then the girl can be seen scrawling graffiti at the entranceway.

Speaking to BringMeTheNews on Tuesday, Inbound said they tagged the building with "profanity, hateful death threats, and phallic symbols."

"The damage isn't overly extensive," a bar spokesperson said, "it's more the principal of vandalism and property damage. We have no clue why someone would do this. They don't support local craft beer? They were intoxicated?

"Maybe they were trying to catch Pokemon and couldn't get inside?"

Anyone in the area with information about the vandalism, which has since been scrubbed off, should contact Minneapolis police.

Inbound Brewco, a brand of the Minnetonka-based brewers Lucid, opened its North Loop taproom this past April in what is fast-becoming a craft beer haven north of downtown Minneapolis, with Fulton and Modist breweries nearby.
