Default Minneapolis, MN ???

Any members from there?

I'll be headed to Minneapolis on Monday, 20 April and leaving on Thursday.

Anyone want to get together for some brews?

I just got back from Minneapolis today.

I had some free time and visited Barley John's Brew Pub. Had an "interesting" IPA that wasn't quite up to snuff (IMO), but the people were nice.

While there I realized that Minneapolis was the location of MIDWESTSUPPLIES.COM (where I do the majority of my mail ordering from) so I dropped in for a look and made a few smaller purchases...

Northern brewer isn't too far away either. But whenever I go to mpls, midwest is the first place on my list of places to go (typically followed by IKEA because it's the only way I can convince SWMBO to make the 1.5 hr drive to mpls)

Whatever it takes to get there is a good reason in my book...

I just saw this post now, sorry. PM me next time. Northern Brewer is good also and there are some really good pubs in MSP to hit next time.

Sorry I missed you.

Unfortunately, that's my first time up there on business in 34+ years. With only 9 months to go until retirement it doesn't look good that there'll be another trip there for me.
