News & Updates


Well hello there dear reader… you’re still out there, right? It’s 2019 and if you’ve found your way to this site, there’s a good chance that you’re amped about Minnesota craft beer. We’re right there with you! 11 years ago it was a “challenge” to drink only Minnesota-made beer for the year. Today it’s practically a reality.

In 2019, we plan to keep up our “feverish” schedule of posts. 😉 Right now I’m working on a database to organize the breweries, combining breweries and brewpubs into one listing. For those who care to understand the difference between the two, we promise to add the business model to the database. We’re also planning to bring our brewery map back. …and hopefully keep on top of every brewery opening (and sadly, closing) in Minnesota.

Finally, our hearts go out to Portage Brewing Company in Walker. If you haven’t heard, a fire caused massive damage to their building. Given the time that it takes to build a brewery, one can only guess that they have a long road ahead of them. No doubt there will be options to help support them in the future – if you’d like to get a jump on things, there’s a silent auction and benefit Sunday at Chase on the Lake in Walker.

Be good to each other beer nerds,
