I am totally stoked to read of the redevelopment plans for St. Paul's two breweries (Schmidt's and Hamms.) I've been cruising the area of West Seventh near the Schmidt's brewery and have found some of the renovations on that street really exciting. Some funky restaurants, the 1000 Friends of Minnesota office, plus some of Mayor Coleman's favorite old school bars. A great eclectic mix!
There are some interesting posts at the St. Paul Real Estate blog about the existing neighborhood and the brewery.
For more info on the area, see the website of the West Seventh/Fort Road Federation/District 9 Community Council.
