We're bigger than beer

LET YOUR LEGISLATORS KNOW: WE DON'T WANT GROWLERS TO GO AWAY!
Posted Friday March 8, 2013
You can help, and it's easy.

As you may already know, Minnesota's breweries are only allowed to sell growlers until the brewery reaches 3,500 barrels in annual production. Fulton and other breweries around the state are set to surpass that number this year or in the very near future. We like growlers, and we know many of you do too, so if you'd like to continue to have the option to buy growlers in the future, we need your help. We are working on a bill to allow breweries over 3,500 barrels to continue selling growlers as we grow, and our state Senators and Representatives need to know that you care too. So, take a couple moments today to call or email your local representatives. It's real easy to help: click over to http://savethegrowler.org/take-action/, type in your zipcode to look up your local reps, and contact them today. Not sure what to say? Use some of the quick talking points on the website to tell them why it's important.

OUR TAPROOM IS OPEN THIS WEEKEND, BUT THE BATHROOMS ARE CURRENTLY A LITTLE RUSTIC.

Who goes there? Nobody, hopefully.

We have good news and bad news, and they're both the same: we're remodelling our bathroom at the brewery. The good part is that we'll have much larger and somewhat nicer bathrooms. No more lines! The bad part of the news is that the taproom will be a little primitive until we've finished the project in a week or two. We rented some indoor biffies that are actually not much more spartan than our former bathrooms, so don't worry, no need to go outside. Other than that, taproom operations will be as normal.

LAST WEEKEND FOR WAR & PEACE BOTTLES AT THE TAPROOM

Those who brave the conditions mentioned above will be rewarded: we have extended War & Peace bottle sales at the taproom through this weekend. Stop by anytime today or tomorrow to pick up a few bottles ($15, tax included). Also, War & Peace will remain on draft at the taproom for the next few weeks.

LIMITED BEER TAPPINGS TO CURE YOUR SPRING FEVER

It's that tortorous time of year: the weather is getting warmer, daylight savings time is here, but we're still getting random snowstorms that dump 10" of snow overnight. It's as if the weather can't make up its mind what season it is. In an effort to give winter the final boot, we've scheduled a slew of limited release beer tappings all over town in the next couple weeks. Click the image at left to be magically whisked away to our events calendar, where you'll find a delightful variety of barrel-aged Libertine, War & Peace, and firkins for your imbibing pleasure. The next few weeks will be some of the last opportunities to enjoy these beers this year, so get them while you can. And take comfort in knowing our first ever spring seasonal is fermenting rye-ght now...
