A meditation on store-bought potica (not enough layers!). Get ready for bold flavors (and a bit of “mucilaginous texture”) at City Afrique. Tasting notes for Indeed Haywire Double Black Ale. Details on the Frenatae Honey Sale Dec 5-7 at the University of Minnesota (above: hard-working bees from Wisconsin Natural Acres). Winners of the Growler’s Kind of a Big Deal awards, featuring tons of Surly. Bullfrog is going to become yet another Bulldog. Portraits of the artists behind the looks of local beer brands. And Minnehaha Falls as a cocktail.
