The Churn: Loonshine and More

Becca Dilley / Heavy Table

A new Northfield, MN-based company is launching a campaign to start a craft, organic white whiskey brand called Loonshine. An interview with Stephanie Dinh of Mai Ly Asian Cuisine in Stillwater. Good news for the taproom plans of Steel Toe Brewing and Pour Decisions Brewing Company. A profile of Broders’ Cucina Italiana deli (my personal source for small, delicious Italian-style butter cookies baked in New Jersey). The Well Fed Guide to Life heads to Mosaic Cafe (our review’s here; picture of Mosaic frozen custard, above). City Pages reviews The Lynn on Bryant (here’s our take on it). And six American cheeses for sharing on Thanksgiving, featuring plenty of Wisconsin dairy.
