‘Resilience, revitalization and harmony’: South Minneapolis brewery hosts first Asian Phoenix Festival

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.

If you’re near south Minneapolis this weekend, one way to celebrate is with beer: Arbeiter Brewing is one of just 2 percent of breweries nationwide that are owned by Asian Americans.

On Sunday, May 26, Arbeiter will host a festival with food, drinks, and performances by local dance and drum groups, plus music from Minneapolis DJ Jen-E.

Brewery co-founder Juno Choi joined MPR News host Cathy Wurzer with details on the upcoming Asian Phoenix Festival.
