Brainerd Lakes Fall Color Bonanza

Breezy Point Resort celebrates its 150th anniversary this year and you can join the fun with their all-inclusive golf package that is second to none. The four day, three night package drops to $449 until season close, getting you unlimited golf, 4-star dining at the Marina and Antlers restaurants, drinks and double-occupancy lodging. Drinks include beer, wine and 2nd-to- top-shelf cocktails (whoa caution) and I will admit I have never been able to use all my complimentary meal and appetizer...

2018 Brewer's Ball Set For Early April

The Minnesota Brewer's Ball combines several amazing things: beer, tasty food, live music, auctions, generous people and a good cause.

Robert and Erik Enjoying Beer – Burning Brothers Brewing

A Half Pint at Burning Brothers Brewing

One recent start-up that has been gaining interest (and distribution) is Burning Brothers Brewing.

We had to stop in and give it a try. ...

Robert and Erik Enjoying Beer - 'Bauhaus Brew Labs'

Bag Toss  Board @ Bauhaus Brew Labs

Beer has always been important to us (Robert and Erik). Be it home-brewing, savoring a Bavarian masterpiece or just frothing our respective mustaches on pitchers of Hamms at a local dive bar, we think about, discuss and enjoy our ales and lagers all the time. So it's with great pleasure that we introduce the first of (hopefully) many articles (and podcasts!) on Minnesotan breweries. Not enough is being said about Minnesota beer! It's time to start navigating the yeasty, hoppy renaissance that is sweeping our state. This week we take on ...
