“These honors reinforce that Minnesota brewers create exceptional craft beers,” says Dan Schwarz, President of the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild. “We are proud of our Guild members for representing the strong state of craft beer in Minnesota at this prestigious competition.”
The new St. Paul facility will allow Bad Weather Brewing to expand production capabilities to meet increasing demand. The taproom will provide an exciting place for craft beer lovers to enjoy a rotating list of unique offerings, in addition to Bad Weather flagship WINDVANE and seasonal favorites OMINOUS, FIREFLY RYE and MIGRATION. Four new beers will be available on opening day to compliment the current lineup.
I respect our new Rochester brewing businesses and don’t want to see them hurt by unnecessary regulation,” said Council Member Michael Wojcik.
Local control of liquor laws, are they really all they are supposedly cracked up to be? For years the idea of giving the option of Sunday liquor sales to Minnesota municipalities has been bounced around. The problem with municipalities and the passing of reasonable liquor laws is that they are easily influenced.
A recently released poll from Public Policy Polls shows overwhelming support for Sunday liquor sales from registered voters in Minnesota.
Minnesota voters of all political ideologies believe that Sunday liquor sales should be allowed in the state. Polls show that not only is a repeal of the Sunday liquor ban supported by a majority of voters, but that the issue is gaining momentum.
