About First Draft

Minneapolis’ Premier Craft Beverage Hub

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!

How does our Pour-Your-Own System work?

Give your ID & credit or debit card to a first draft employee at the front desk when you walk in. You'll receive a first draft wrist band. Grab a glass choose your bev & pour as much as you'd like. Our technology will keep track for you. When you're done, return your wristband to the front desk. You will only be charged for the amount your poured.

Celebrate with us!
