Insight Brewing repurposed an abandoned warehouse along Hennepin Ave which borders the Como neighborhood and Mid-City Industrial area. The building sat vacant for years and the renovation uses the surrounding industrial aesthetic to create a usable commercial space that ties the industrial area back to the street. High ceilings provide ample space for brewing equipment and glass block openings bring daylight into the dining area. A covered patio creates an exterior addition to the seating area. The main entry is situated in the previous loading dock, creating a stairway transition from the sidewalk outside to the raised floor of the taproom.
