Another MN 1st: Samichlaus on Tap

I stopped in Busters on 28th last night, only to be greeted by a sign proclaiming it St. Nicholas Day, coincidentally the same day that Brewery Castle Eggenberg brews their famous Samichlaus Bier. What does this mean? Well for the first time in Minnesota, this and the Sami Helles are on tap (the Helles hadn’t been tapped as of 10pm last night).  A 12-ounce pour in a sterling silver rimmed Sami tulip is $8, and the bartender said four kegs of the delicious, 14% lager are in town, but he didn’t know who had the other two.
