Summit/Blue Plate “Hops Like a Kangaroo IPA” Release

To celebrate Blue Plate Restaurants‘ 20th anniversary, Summit’s Damian McConn brewed an Australian IPA.

Beer description per head brewer Damian McConn:
“New Aussie hops. Old Aussie yeast strain. Yank malt for the base. This assertive unfiltered White IPA combines the fruitiness of a classic yeast from Down Under with the spicy earthiness of next generation Tasmanian hop varieties. Clean assertive bitterness, stone fruit flavours and a solid aroma of spicy peach and mango.”

612 Mary Ann Release Next Tuesday

612 brew logoWith a name like Mary Ann, this beer needs a song. See below. Next Tuesday, Minneapolis’ 612 Brew releases Mary Ann, a ginger lager at Edina Grill starting at 6pm. Edina Grill will have menu items that feature Mary Ann and 612 Brew’s SIX and Main Stage Amber will also be available for your imbibing pleasure.

The following day, 612Brew will release Mary Ann in the taproom on draft and make it available for growler sales. The beer will be at other accounts in the coming weeks.

Mary Ann is 612Brew’s spring/summer seasonal offering. The beer is the brewery’s first lager, brewed with Pilsen and wheat malts, Noble hops and over 70 pounds of ginger. Wait. What? You read that right. Seventy pounds of fresh, hand-grated ginger is added directly into the boil. This beer isn’t infused with ginger – it’s brewed with it for an all-out flavor and aroma assault. Think ginger ale meets beer. This light lager is low alcohol at 4.1% ABV and amazingly refreshing.

Blue Plate Restaurant Group’s “Beer for Boobs”

Four locations of The Blue Plate Restaurant Group will present three days of “BEER for BOOBS,” in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, taking place at The Edina Grill, The Groveland Tap, The Longfellow Grill, and 3 Squares on Oct 26th, 27th, 28th featuring beer from Summit Brewing Company and Third Street Brewhouse.

This charitable event is designed to raise money for Pay It Forward, a local charity giving 100% of the proceeds to be used to help breast and women’s cancer patients pay essential living expenses and medical assistance while they go through treatment.

The proceeds raised during the BPRC 3 Day Beer for Boobs event will go towards Pay It Forward. Is there a better way to feel good about drinking beer? Good beer for a good cause!

Top Brewer Minnesota

Description from Top Brewer: This event is a celebration of the local craft beer scene.  Never before has the community been brought together to choose what beer will enter the local market.  This event unites local breweries, beer lovers, homebrewers, and craft beer bars in one harmonious event, by showcasing each, and the contribution they make to our community.

Groveland Tap, October 11 & 25th – 6-9:30pm
Edina Grill, October 18 – 6-9:30pm
3 Squares, November 1 – 6pm-9:30pm

The event is 100% Minnesotan.  Taking place on Thursdays in October on scenic patios.

The brewer that will own the Top Brewer MN will be determined through a series of 4 qualifying events, which will be held at a different Blue Plate Group Restaurant. Each week 6 local homebrewers bring a beer to be judged; the winner of each week will be given ingredients courtesy of Northern Brewer and Brewer Supply Group to make a beer for the finals.

The Finals will be held at Lucid Brewing Company on February 2nd and the winner will be be known around Minnesota and beyond as TOP BREWER MINNESOTA.

Top Brewer MN will give local homebrewers an opportunity to be able to brew on a production scale brewing system with the gang at Lucid Brewing Company, help name the beer, and of course be apart of the promotional team through a series of events in March.

Each of the four events will be limited to 200 attendees and will cost fifteen dollars. Ticket will includes a complimentary Lucid beer of your choice, live music featuring local artists, and special pricing for Lucid beers as well as some food items paired specifically with the Lucid beers.
