The Bachelor Farmer’s Erin Rolek was named by Food & Wine Magazine as one of eight 2017 Sommeliers of the Year.

“Rolek hunts for new discoveries in a city that’s just beginning to have a thrilling wine scene,” writes F&W. “Her 100-plus-bottle list hews to cool-climate wines that fit 
chef Paul Berglund’s cool-region cooking—it’s local on 
a philosophical rather than strictly geographic level.”

Rolek penned an op-ed for the Growler in last year’s wine issue, making the case for wines from cold countries.

Food & Wine rates Town Hall’s Masala Mama as one of the “Best IPAs in America”

What do you get when you mix Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, Mount Hood, Citra, and Experimental 342 hops? Well, according to Food & Wine, it’s Minnesota’s best IPA: Town Hall Brewery’s Masala Mama.

In a recent editorial, the magazine picked the Best IPA in every state. For our neighbors to the east they chose Ale Asylum’s Bedlam!, in Iowa it was Toppling Goliath’s ZeeLander, and Illinois went to Pipeworks’ Ninja vs. Unicorn Double IPA.

For Minnesota, the magazine said, “For the rest of us, an IPA called Masala Mama might sound ridiculous, but in Minneapolis, taking down a pint of the brew is practically a rite of passage. The highly-regarded downtown brewpub Town Hall has been serving up this acclaimed IPA for well over a decade, and though many beer trends have come and gone, this lighter, 5.9 percent ABV beer has maintained its reputation by being an easy-drinking crowd favorite.”

Brewer’s Table at Surly Brewing named among Food & Wine 10 Best New Restaurants

Food & Wine Magazine has named Brewer’s Table at Surly Brewing one of the 10 best new restaurants in America for 2016.

They write:

“Across the country, people are eating better food and drinking better beer every day. I can’t imagine a more satisfying place to do both than Brewer’s Table. Upstairs from the vast Surly beer hall is this 70-seat dining room, where chef Jorge Guzman oversees a deceptively simple-sounding menu. The four-course tasting is a bargain at $70, especially since it includes beer pairings. Guzman serves sopa de lima as an ode to his Yucatán heritage, preparing the tortilla soup with avocado-leaf-infused chicken broth. His steak frites comes with bone marrow gel and a brilliant powdered béarnaise sauce, plus a glass of Surly’s barrel-aged Pentagram beer—destination-worthy on its own.”

An announcement on CBS This Morning shows the rest of the winners from around the country:
