about us

As many of you have probably already heard, due to Covid-19, Bars, Restaurants and Taprooms in MN must cease on premise serving as of 5pm today, March 17th. So starting at 5pm today, Big Axe will only be able to provide takeout/togo/delivery orders for FOOD & BEER. Yes you can still get beer in Growlers, Howlers and Crowlers! This restriction is currently set to remain in effect until 3/27 but as with most things this is subject to change. Our hours will change temporarily to 12-7pm Mon-Sat and 12-3pm Sunday. These hours may also change so we encourage you to call ahead or message us on Facebook. Until restrictions are eased, all events listed on Facebook/website will be cancelled. We understand this is not easy for anyone, but any support you can offer is appreciated during this time! Our full menu will be available for order. Call ahead (218-961-2337) or order in person. We are currently working on online ordering and will post an update once that is in place. Our menu: Please note we also offer gift cards and other merchandise for sale online: If you cannot get into the taproom for a howler, growler or crowler, please visit one of our local partner liquor stores (Nisswa Spirits, Cashwise, West Side, Baxter Liquor Mart, Super One).
