  • Delicious craft beer to go!


    Enjoy our beer out-and-about or in the comfort of your own home and support your local small brewery at the same time by purchasing growlers to-go! These reusable 64-ounce vessels allow you to take out four pints of fresh Sylvan beer. We'll fill your clean growler or purchase one of our amber glass growlers ($6) or a gorgeous stainless steel option ($50) that will keep your brew cold up to 24 hours or a hot beverage warm up to 12 hours. Fills range from $15-25 depending on the beer. These also make great gifts!

    How to care for your beer and growler:

    • Keep your filled growler out of heat and direct sunlight. Refrigerate it as soon as possible to maximize the beer's quality. Unopened, the beer is at its best when the growler is opened within 3 days. After opening, you'll want to consume it within hours to a day.

    • Always thoroughly rinse the growler with warm water as soon as it's empty. Toss the old cap and allow the growler to air dry.

  • About Us

    Comfy, Crafty, and a little bit Crazy - we've got beer for all tastes! Our taproom and brewery is on the north edge of historic downtown Lanesboro, a picturesque town nestled along the Root River in the heart of southeastern Minnesota's beautiful bluff country. Founded in 2020 by Karen and Andy Heimdahl, Sylvan Brewing is located in the former wood-stacked granary and is Lanesboro’s first brewery in over 100 years! We welcome you with delicious beer and friendly service in our inviting and unique setting.


    Our patio is open year-round and in the winter has heaters and a fire pit for those chilly days. Dogs are welcome on the patio.
