Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport continues to improve the traveler experience with the addition of Republic and Stone Arch Restaurants.
Republic offers local craft beer, food and live music performances through a partnership with the McNally Smith College of Music.
In partnership with the Minnesota Craft Brewer’s Guild, Stone Arch will serve scratch food and a wide variety of Minnesota craft beers, including beers that will launch exclusively at the restaurant.
One of the unique elements of Stone Arch is the “Craft Lab,” which includes a specific area of the bar (shown below) and is made up of five rotating taps dedicated to Minnesota Craft Brewer’s Guild members who want to show off something unique, test out a new recipe, or simply showcase their beer to a broader audience than they may be able to at their taproom or through limited distribution. Breweries who have a beer on tap at the Craft Lab will sign up to have a brewer or other representative present for four hours during the week their beer is on to help showcase the beer and engage with diners.
