    We have the Fabulous Mark from Victory in Saturday to share has amazing beer with you. Victory Brewing is celebrating their 21st birthday this year (they can finally legally drink!), so come celebrate with us. Not only do they make one of the Best Pilsners in the world, they are one of the very few breweries that uses whole flower hops in its beer. Almost all breweries used pelletized hops, whole flower hops are a purer form, and the brewers at Victory believe they impart better flavor and aroma to beer. Come try these great beers with Mark.

    We welcome the gang from Tin Whiskers back to the store this Friday afternoon. Jake Johnson, Jeff Moriarty, and George Kellerman all met at the University of MN. With Electrical Engineering Degrees in hand, they found themselves working together for a small engineering services company in downtown Minneapolis. Frequently unable to resist the allure of happy hour, they spent plenty of time discussing craft beer and how it relates to Life, the Universe and Everything. As engineers, the great interplay between the art and science of brewing beer was a topic of conversation they could never quite shake. In 2010 inspired by a couple brewery tours and the stories of the founders of Surly and Flat Earth; The three decided to start a business. In 2011 Tin Whiskers Brewing Co., LLC was born. It’s been an all-grain brewing, business planning, robot building company ever since and they’ve never looked back.

They focus on session beers, and British styles...though not exclusively! They quickly outgrew the 1st location and moved on up to a bigger location in less than a year. They make balanced, classic styles, including the 1st ever Minnesota canned Nitro Beer. Come check out this great Local brewery with us this Saturday.
