Reviews of a couple Castle Danger brews, plus we talk flavored beer (featuring Schell’s, Borealis, Urban Growler, Bent Paddle, and Northgate) on Minnesota Public Radio’s Appetites series. The Minnesota Food Charter launched this week. The Well Fed Guide to Life gets out to Hello Pizza (our review here).  Curry Diva Heather Jansz is hosting a weekly pop-up at Our Kitchen in Uptown. Republic Uptown is devoting all 56 taps to local beer in November. A new Kickstarter campaign is raising money for Urban Forage, an urban winery and cider house on East Lake Street. Dara looks at the mentors behind Lyn65 (our review here) and The Third Bird (review here.) Rick Nelson does a pizza chain roundup (Tucci Pronto, Pizza Rev, Pieology, and Pizza Studio). And Jess Fleming delivers a Minnesota body slam (“So how was the food? Some of it was good. Some of it was, in a word, disappointing”) to the current incarnation of the Union-Workshop-Kaskaid entity.
