Feb Pint East at Big Wood

Big Wood Brewery

John has been bugging me to do this for two months. Dude lives east. Me, the organizer, not so east. So John came up with the argument that in the winter, we generally don't want to drive as far because of slippery roads. He eventually sold me on it. Well that and the fact that I like to drink beer more than once a month. So for February only, we will do a Monthly Pint East and West.

John will host Pint East at Big Wood Brewery in White Bear Lake [masked]th St) on Wednesday, Feb 9, starting at 5:00. He says it reminds him of Cheers, as you walk down the stairs. There is ample free parking off 3rd St, behind the brewery. John will check on food trucks and let you know if one is coming. Gary remembers food in the vicinity so we could probably order something even w/o a food truck.

Wear your name tag and you will get a buck off a pint!

Pint West will be the next Wednesday at New Bohemia in Golden Valley, and will be hosted by Gary.

Feb Pint West at New Bohemia in Golden Valley

New Bohemia - Golden Valley

John has been bugging me to do this for two months. Dude lives east. Me, the organizer, not so east. So John came up with the argument that in the winter, we generally don't want to drive as far because of slippery roads. He eventually sold me on it. Well that and the fact that I like to drink beer more than once a month. So for February only, we will do a Monthly Pint East and a Pint West.

Gary is hosting the Pint West at New Bohemia in New Hope. They don't brew beer, but they got lots of beer from people who do brew beer. There is a happy hour until 6 and then from 7 till close Summits are a buck off. Gary is talking to them about further discounts to fill in that hole between 6 and 7. More info later.

New Bohemia has lots o' beer and good food - if you like brats and pretzels and cheese and, I don't even know why I say "if" cause who doesn't like brats and pretzels and cheese? Commies maybe. But Real 'mericans like all that sh*t.

Lots of parking. Easy access. And more importantly, Gary has a short drive home because, it's all about Gary.

Pint East will be the Wednesday 2/9 at Big Wood waaaay up in White Bear Lake and will be hosted by John.
