Established in 2018, First Draft is locally owned and operated. Our purpose is to be the premier craft beverage hub in downtown Minneapolis. 


We set ourselves apart with our unique self pour, pay-by-the-ounce draft system. Featuring 54 taps of cocktails, beer, wine, cider, and kombucha, you’re sure to find a favorite while sampling at your own pace. Most of our taps are sourced from Minnesota and others from across the United States. We pride ourselves in being a business that exists to entertain, so check out our events page for the latest live music, trivia, or other upcoming events!
