Welcome To The Earl Giles Distillery

Find us in the Southeast corner of the renowned Keller Building located in the Logan Park neighborhood of northeast Minneapolis. Once housing a horse and carriage manufacturing site, we have done our best to pack this 18,000 square foot plot, with everything we needed... and maybe a few things we didn’t (see two live trees, 600+ plants, and 120 linear feet of bar top space) to make a space that lets us create and more importantly, have a good time doing it.  

So, we welcome you to join in our mission, to open a place where we can throw parties, toss a pizza (no food fights!), shake a drink, and make some memories. Settle into your seat, we are happy you are here.

- The Story of Earl Giles -

It might surprise you to learn that Earl Giles is much more than a Minneapolis Distillery.

During prohibition, Earl Giles would fly his floatplane all over the Upper Midwest to deliver liquor. He did this by cleverly dispensing alcohol into apothecary bottles. In doing so, he was able to successfully transport liquor under the guise of medicine.

Learn more about the exciting adventures of Earl Giles, and how we're continuing his legacy—minus the bootlegging.
