Band of Brewers Print

A friend shared this with me today and it was too cool to not pass on.

From the artist’s website:

I recently completed this very large pencil drawing highlighting 8 great craft brewers in Minnesota.  Pete Rifakes of Town Hall Brewery in Minneapolis was the man behind the idea.  He allowed me to create  a drawing that might be the first of its kind in Minnesota. (maybe the free world!)

Thanks to all of the craft brewers who participated.  It was fun to travel the state and meet everyone.  In no particular order, here are the breweries that participated; Town Hall Brewery-Minneapolis, Summit Brewing-St. Paul, Fulton Brewery-Minneapolis, Surly Brewing Company-Brooklyn Center, Schell’s Brewery-New Ulm, Fitger’s Brewhouse-Duluth, Steel Toe Brewing-St. Louis Park and last but not least, Lift Bridge Brewing of Stillwater.

Rumor has it that the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild will have the original drawing displayed as part of their State Fair exhibit this year.  Look for the display in the Ag/Hort Building.

Last Night’s Schell’s Rooftop Pig Roast at Sky Bar in Pictures

Last night atop the Uptown Cafeteria on the Sky Bar some food and Schell’s beer magic happened. It was my first experience at a beer dinner and it was well worth the wait. Here’s what it looked like.
