A Former Pharmacist Becomes The First Black Woman In Minnesota To Own A Brewery


SAINT PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – A former pharmacist is trying to make history as the first Black woman to own a brewery in Minnesota.


Of the more than 200 breweries in Minnesota, only a handful are owned by either women or people of color. But a woman of color has yet to own a brewery in the state.


Brittney Mikell is trying to change that.



“I’m a huge dreamer,” she said.


After getting burned out in her career as a pharmacist, Mikell turned to her passion for brewing, eventually rising to the ranks of assistant brewer at La Dona Cerveceria in Minneapolis.


But now, she has even bigger aspirations to become the first Black woman to own a brewery in Minnesota.
