A local brewery has made a 'cool' addition to its taproom area. Owatonna's Mineral Springs Brewery recently put up two igloos, with more coming, for patrons to enjoy a beverage or two outdoors in the comfort of a geodesic dome aka igloo.

A recent post to the Mineral Springs Brewery Facebook page shows what the domes will look like, and how you can reserve one.

Mineral Springs Brewery's post says:

"New seating at MSB ... three more coming soon! Online reservation details will be on the website once all five are setup. Until then, these two can be booked inside the taproom. Come check them out this weekend. See you at MSB!!"- Mineral Springs Brewery Facebook Page 

When reached for comment about the igloos and where they came from Mineral Springs Brewing responded that the igloos were purchased from "Garden Igloos USA." As far as how long they will be up, and if it is just a one-season effort from the Owatonna brewery they stated that "We plan to have them up through the winter, and we hope to do so each winter going forward."

In all, there will be a total of 5 igloos set up at the brewery this winter.

A quick look at their website shows that there isn't a spot to reserve the igloos, but eventually, there will be an online reservation system. If you want to enjoy an igloo and a beer, you are asked to head into the taproom.

I have to admit that it's a pretty cool idea to have the igloos available for people to enjoy.

Mineral Springs Brewing is open Wednesday and Thursday's 4-9 pm, Saturday's Noon to 10 pm, and Sundays 2-7 pm.
