The Mill is soaked. It’s shaping up to be one of the wettest Junes on record. But there are plenty of chances for you to drink the rain away this week. ICYMI, consult our guide to Pints On The Green Line if you’ll be riding the new corridor. And tune into WCCO Radio this morning at 11:10am to hear me talking food and beer with John Hines.


Toss back a few pints of Traitor IPA and White IPA with the MN Beer Activists and Badger Hill Brewing at the Nomad World Pub, 6pm tomorrow (Wednesday the 18th), and catch the second half of Croatia-Cameroon while you’re there. Rough start for Croatia—robbed by the refs in the opener against Brazil and then snapped in the buff by the paparazzi.

Tickets are still available for Thursday’s Blues and Brews tasting at the Van Dusen Mansion. The benefit for Canvas Health will feature beers from multiple area breweries, appetizers paired with the beers, and music from Cadillac Kolstad and Harrison Street Band.

Check out our preview of GermanFest at the Schmidt Brewery happening all this weekend.

And don’t forget about the Posters And Pints art show and beer tasting at the Uppercut Boxing Gym in Northeast on Saturday from 6–10pm.


Rochester’s Kinney Creek Brewery announced their Picks & Pints music and beer fest, taking place July 5th from noon-10pm. Expect local food trucks and ten hours of live music outdoors.

And Boom Island Brewing has announced Boom Days will be held July 18–20. Among the food, games and live music, they’ll release Cuvée de Boom—a mix of blonde ale and pinot grigio juice conditioned into a light, champagne-like ale.

New Releases:

Northgate Brewing’s Parapet ESB will be hitting stores today.

And Summit’s newest entry in their Union Series, the Southern Cape Sparkling Ale, is in stores now.
