Fat Pants Brewing Co.
In 1984, Don Anderson gave his dad a homebrewing kit for Father’s Day. The result was as lackluster as when Don’s daughters Linda and Elizabeth gave him his own homebrewing kit nearly three decades later. But the family still adored their creation, and soon turned their newfound hobby into Eden Prairie’s first taproom! Today the Fat Pants team are devoted to good fun, good people, and above all good beer. At their fine drinking establishment they offer uplifting concoctions including Monkey Grinder with fruity mosaic hops, OH! + made with blood orange, and The 952 – an especially restorative double IPA at 9.5 percent ABV. And as great beer demands great food, Fat Pants’ patrons can also enjoy nachos, totchos, burgers, pizza, and more in the cozy taproom.
