February Pint at Boom Island

Boom Island Brewing Company

February Pint at Boom Island. Travel to Belgium without leaving Minneapolis. Well, maybe not exactly, but you'll find plenty of Belgium style beer at Boom Island Brewing. Located in lovely North Minneapolis at the corner of Stabbing and Gunshot... Wait, just kidding. It's fine. It's actually kind of a cool place. and they have a nice enclosed parking lot in back. People even sit outside in the summer. Just to be sure, I stopped by the other day and didn't see any police tape. The place is small. Which is good. We'll be taking it over. It'll be pretty much all us there. I'm working on a discount / extended happy hour. I will update with the status on that. Food: Dulano's pizza delivers. Parking: Enclosed lot in back. They are letting us double park since it will be pretty much just us. There is also parking on 21st or on Washington. Their story: "It all started with one beer. When Kevin Welch, our founder and head brewer, tasted his first Belgian tripel in 2001, it was a life-changing experience. “I couldn’t believe how many unique flavors there were,” he recalls. “They were all intricately balanced and kept evolving. I’d never tasted anything like that, and ever since then I’ve been obsessed with Belgian beer.” Authentic Belgian brewery-sourced yeasts Before starting Boom Island, Kevin travelled to 13 breweries across Belgium to brew side-by-side with the leading innovators in Belgian brewing. He also brought home the ultimate souvenir: nine strains of yeast from their source breweries. Today, Kevin uses several of those strains to produce the elusive qualities only found in beer from the breweries of their origin. Naturally carbonated, living beers Following the Belgian tradition, all Boom Island beers are naturally carbonated and bottle conditioned. Live yeast is added just before the beer is bottled, resulting in a fresher tasting beer with flavors that continue to evolve over time."

March Wort at the Wicked Wort

Wicked Wort Brewing Company

The Monthly Wort has resumed. I was going to do the first Wednesday, but Holly didn't like that, so I'm doing this one on the first Thursday to make her happy. It's all about the happy. Or, in the case of a brewery, all about the hoppy. Bonus: we miss Wednesday Bingo night by moving it, and that makes me hoppy happy. Everything is as it was: $4 Hoppy Hour beers, $2 off flights $1 off all other taps. Be sure to let them know you are with the Pint for the $10 flights (normally $12) or$5 drafts (normally $6). As always, you can order from nearby restaurants like Pig Ate My Pizza, Broadway Pizza, and Nonna Rosa's, all of which will deliver your food right to your table.
