Forbidden Barrel Brewing Co 


Forbidden Barrel Brewing Co. offers a rotation of nine to eleven original beers made on site as well as a variety of porters, stout, IPAs, honey wheats and other high-end brews. The name and logo are derived from an 1872 story about East Coast settlers who didn’t abide by Worthington’s temperance movement. During a Fourth of July celebration, Prof. Ransom Humiston, Worthington’s founder, learned there was a keg of beer in the Worthington House Hotel, so he seized it, dragged it outside and destroyed it with an axe. We proudly serve MN spirits and wines in addition to our own beer! We source locally when the products are available. We offer pizza, wings, pretzels and seasonal or special limited time foods. We are family owned and proud to offer amazing beer and some unique varieties as well. We are family friendly and only a block off of Lake Okabena in Downtown Worthington.
