Muddy Pig Update: I Love Beer Pub Tour Cancelled

Here’s an update from Mark at the Muddy Pig… they’ll be celebrating Prohibition’s partial repeal tonight (yup, 74 years ago Americans could once again legally buy 3.2 beer!) I thought about going but then decided to meet random friends at Minneapolis Town Hall to celebrate Prohibition’s repeal, my new job and my 31st birthday. Cheers!

Today we celebrate the repeal of Prohibition and our right to enjoy good beer. To mark to occasion our friends at Summit Brewing Company have organized a pub crawl with The Muddy Pig and The Happy Gnome. Pints of Summit beers are just $3 all day at both pubs. Yippee!

The Happy Gnome will be serving up Easter brunch on the 16th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Reservations are not required but would probably be a good idea.

Summit’s newest beer, Scandia, is their take on a Belgian white ale with a Scandinavian twist. It makes its debut on Thursday, April 20 and will be available at both The Muddy Pig and The Happy Gnome.

On a sad note, the 9th annual “I Love Beer” pub tour will not be happening this spring. Two more pubs dropped out this year because the owners just don’t get it. But I was talking with Pete over at Town Hall (Pete and I set up the first tour in ’98) and we think we can get things back on track this fall with a new and improved list of participants. The tour must go on.
