Waldmann Brewery, St. Paul’s oldest commercial building, has a quaint and historic vibe. It was constructed in 1857, a few years before the Civil War began and months before Minnesota became a state. Located between the High Bridge and West Seventh Street, the business features a stone exterior that comes across as modest yet cultured. Inside it’s charming and warm, with original pine floors, wood stoves, oil lamps, hand-blown glass windows, and a half-dozen draft beer options. They specialize in traditional German-style lagers, making a visit the perfect opportunity to take in some St. Paul history while enjoying a sunny spring day near the Mississippi. They also offer a full menu featuring housemade wursts, shareable fish plates, and salads, and the space is filled with old maps, photos, and breweriana. If you stop by on Saturdays, you can take a free tour through the building and brewery, including its deconcotion system. Just call ahead to reserve a spot. Tours start at noon each Saturday.
