|About||Craft beers, brewed without a purpose, for a greater purpose. One need not imagine Sisyphus happy, especially when his stomach is filled with beer.|
Sisyphus Brewing aims to:
1) Offer new beers on a weekly basis
2) Offer live entertainment in the form of live podcasts, comedy, and music
3) Create an atmosphere of education and beer enjoyment
The name Sisyphus Brewing comes from an ancient Greek myth about a man who defied the gods in order to return to the world after he had died. His punishment for this act was to push a rock up a mountain for all eternity. When the rock reached the top of the mountain, it rolled back to the bottom, forcing him to start all over again. Albert Camus, a French novelist, compared the human experience to that of Sisyphus, claiming that we find ourselves in a similar situation, toiling meaninglessly on the side of a mountain. However, lucky for us, we have delicious beers along for the ride.
Sisyphus Brewing is located near downtown Minneapolis, a few blocks from the Walker Art Center/Sculpture Garden and across Lyndale Avenue from the Basilica of St. Mary. Within walking distance of Loring Park, Sisyphus Brewing will add to the already vibrant neighborhood.
Each week will feature new beers and a variety of styles. Sisyphus Brewing aims to educate beer drinkers about the variety of styles, ingredients and the brewing process.
In addition to a 100 seat tap room, we also have a 100 seat theater that will feature comedy and live music.
