Habitat for Humanity
Pryes Brewing is proud to support Habitat for Humanity. 21+ guests will be required to buy a $4 wristband to drink. A portion of the proceeds from the wristband sales will be donated to Habitat for Humanity.

About the Block Party
The Block Party is open to all ages. Dogs are welcome outside in the expanded beer garden. There will be an ATM available, but we encourage our guests to bring cash. The City of MPLS will be here with their giant water station, bring a refillable vessel and stay hydrated. We're excited to be joined by our friends at the Minneapolis Bouldering Project, the TC River Rats and MN Nice Cream.

Expanded Bike Parking
Pryes Brewing is bringing in additional bike racks for an expand bike parking lot. We encourage our guests to bike to the party or take a Taxi/Uber/Lyft.

Minneapolis Craft Market
Pryes Brewing is excited to welcome the Minneapolis Craft Market to the Block Party on Saturday. The Minneapolis Craft Market is a community social hub and an incubator for the arts. They believe the Twin Cities has a unique culture of creativity, with a goal to provide a venue for both emerging and established makers to sell their work.

Habitat for Humanity Mission Statement
Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity is committed to building the quality of life, health, and economic prosperity of the seven-county metro region by producing, preserving, and advocating for affordable homeownership – because homes and families are the foundation of successful communities.
