We’re now starting to scan our old family slides (so am still learning the nuance of scanning slides/negatives), but wanted to share this one taken by my mom when she went to the 1977 Super Bowl at the Rose Bowl.

Super Bowl Minnesota

Last night, we met Jason (and his wife Hannah) as they opened the doors of a brand-new brewery in St Louis Park. As with any new business venture, the story of Steel Toe Brewing is filled with trials and tribulations – some of which they told us about while we tasted (and then happily purchased a growler of) the first release of Provider Ale, and others I read on their website. Hint: The Packers winning the Super Bowl and the Minnesota state government shutdown were not very helpful. Next weekend, they release Size 7 IPA and Dissent stout…can’t wait to try them all!
