In case you missed Sunday’s Star Tribune Arts section while you were busy with all your holiday goings-on, Chris Riemenschneider gave MNBeer a nice plug. I might not have noticed it however someone kindly inserted a picture of a beer being poured into a mug. Trust a picture of beer to catch my eye any day.

Talk about a vicious circle: As Minnesota beer aficionados/snobs have more brands to drink up and events to take in, they naturally have a harder time keeping track of it all. This site was brewed for that reason. Essentially a message board and events calendar for in-state breweries and brewpubs, it’s the place to go to find out things like: When is Schell’s Bockfest? (Feb. 2.) What new brews are on tap at Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery? (A chocolatey Belgian ale called Festivus 2007 and an English IPA called 1800.) And what’s causing the worldwide hops shortage? (Expertly explained in a long letter from Summit proprietor Mark Stutrud.)
OK, so it’s not always riveting stuff, but it helps you get to the riveting stuff.
