News & Updates

Thank You

Three years ago, I put out a request for more writers. We had 2-3 writers at that time and I took on the bulk of the work. I was trying to maintain a taplist for local craft beer bars (which would be an absolute nightmare today), grow the site’s readership and introduce Minnesotans to the diversity of craft beer in their state. Lofty goals. In any case, Mag and Kris were amongst the very first to volunteer.

I caught their passion for local craft beer immediately. Like myself, they love great beer, love sharing great beer and don’t take themselves too seriously. They’re fun, dynamic and totally plugged into the craft beer world. For MNBeer, they worked tirelessly to gather local beer news & events while still finding time to drink beer with unmatched fervor!

Seriously, Mag and Kris, I thank you, MNBeer thanks you and the local craft beer community heartily thanks you!

We wish you well!

A votre sante!

    Oh yeah, one last thing Mag…I’d be remiss (and you’d be disappointed) if I didn’t say…Don’t let the door his you in the a@@ on your way out!

    Seriously though, safe trip and let us know what’s happening. Go find Klickitat street, and for crying out loud, read a Beverly Cleary book!

    The effect is diminished when you misspell “hit”

  12. Ben says:

    What’ll your new blog be called?

  13. mag says:

    @ Ben Dunno yet. May play with a non-blogspot blog with our own domain name. That means I need to think hard so as to avoid having a really dumb blog name (not that this won’t happen anyway).

    @ All Thanks again. Really do appreciate the comments/wel wishing.
