Coming Soon: Hackamore Brewing Company Tees Up for New Brews

This winter, Chanhassen’s newest brewery will dish up tasty bar foods and juicy craft beers, with a side of state-of-the-art attractions—namely, a new golf simulator.

With signature craft beers like their Potbelly Oatmeal Stout, Can Crusher Cream Ale, Grandma’s Kitchen Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Sour, Let’s Go Hazy IPA, and #14 American Lager, look out for Chanhassen’s newest Hackamore Brewing Company this winter. 

The brewery will include up to 16 beers on tap, mouthwatering bar food, co-branded merch, and mosty notably an immersive golf simulator “with all the bells and whistles,” says owner Zac Gleason. 

“I can feel and see people getting excited—like, genuinely excited—and I just can’t wait for that gratifying feeling of opening the doors and pouring a beer for a customer the very first time. I am excited and proud to know the kind of product that I’m going to serve.”

Besides Hackamore’s five signature craft brews—which are inspired by Gleason’s upbringing on Hackamore Circle in Corcoran, Minn., where he and his family raised pot-bellied pigs, crushed cans for extra change, and grew rhubarb in the summertime—Gleason and his team will tee up a robust bar-food menu from their fully-approved commercial kitchen, including smash burgers, fried chicken sandwiches, chicken wings, French fries, and vegetarian chomps and chews, all inspired by Gleason’s blog Sota Eats, where he tries and emulates eateries from across the country.

Gleason has significant support from longtime restaurant manager Aaron Melby, who has more than 20 years of experience in the industry. With the help of Gleason’s brother Jake and stepfather Rich Cleveland, Hackamore is hop-ping on the trend of offering non-alcoholic beers, with a robust menu of NA beers that are still in development. As new research sheds light on the negative impact that alcohol can have on health, many folks are forgoing their traditional IPAs, lagers, ales, and sours for their juicy non-alc substitutes. 

“What’s fun about it is that people who don’t drink, or just aren’t drinking right now, still like to go to breweries and hang out for the environment, and they don’t always want to just drink a Diet Coke, you know?”

Edina’s award-winning custom builders John Kraemer & Sons are thoughtfully—and luxuriously—constructing the brewery, engineering the space to account for the golf simulator, in addition to sleek bar seating. 

“I’ve heard from so many people that I’m bringing this nightlife to Chanhassen that is just going to be an absolute staple to the community, so it gets me really excited to be a part of that.”
