Last week we celebrated a Rochester brewery being named one of the best in the country. Today, I'm bummed to bring you this news - we bid farewell to another Minnesota favorite.

ICYMI: Rochester Brewery Named One of the Best in the Country.

Dang near every time I'm in the cities, we make a pitstop at this brewery. They have cute little shop-local markets often, an awesome ambiance, tons of games, and of course, magnificent brews.

After 8 years in business, the brewery announced that tomorrow (December 30th) will be their final day in business.

And, some good news to ease the sting a bit - You can enjoy their beer for ONLY $5 today and tomorrow! "You read that right, $5 BEERS for the rest of the week. All styles. All flavors. 5 bucks a beer." - Lakes and Legends on Facebook.

Personally, I'm super bummed to hear this news. And I definitely wasn't the only one. There were lots of people chiming in to share their support:

Worst news of the day😢 thank you for all you did in creating an amazing community
You will be so missed! Best of luck on future endeavors

Noooooooooo.. This is incredibly sad news. First brewery I fell in love with since I moved back.

Thank you for hosting so many events to support animal welfare work and providing space for rescue pets to meet their forever families!

If you haven't been to Lakes and Legends yet, it's worth the trip. You can find them on La Salle Ave in Minneapolis.

I have to say they also have one of my favorite logos of all time. I bought a crew neck sweater there and I wear it ALL the time.
