When Mankato Brewery co-founders Tony Feuchtenberger and Tim Tupy opened the doors a year ago, they did so with one beer on the taps, Mankato Original.

Now with a stable of five beers that includes Stickum, Mint Stout and two Center Street Series beers, the pair celebrated the brewery’s first anniversary Saturday.

The brewery welcomed visitors with samples of their beers and tours of the brewery by Tupy. The Bitterroot Band provided the entertainment and food by NaKato and the St. Peter Food Coop was available.
