A couple of years ago, Summit Brewing and the Minneapolis Institute of Art teamed up and made a Tudor Ale for a special event at the museum. I was lucky enough to make it to the Summit taproom while they still had some and it was delicious and fascinating! I remember thinking it was a … Continue reading Booze for History Buffs
New Orleans - July 2018 A few months ago, my husband’s company announced that they would be having a work meeting in New Orleans in July. “New Orleans in July?” I said, “that’s going to be awful!” Turns out, I was right - at least in terms of the weather.

This particular event has the added benefit of adding … Continue reading Drink for a Cause: $10 Tie Sale @DuNordCS
