We Minnesotans are known for our ability to consume an astronomical amount of alcohol (it must be our Irish roots.) It’s kind of ingrained into our culture. Take it from someone who isn’t native to the state.

I’m from Kentucky, where half the populations regards alcoholic consumption as blasphemy. When I moved here I was thrilled when I realized that you’re basically considered a square if you don’t at least drink socially.

I’m proud to call Minnesota home now. It should come as no surprise that the land of 10,000 lakes is home to some of the best craft beer in the country.

There’s no shortage of awesome breweries and local brands around. One of the more popular breweries – Pantown Brewing – is among my favorites. They have a pretty awesome beer selection to choose from.

Needless to say I'm pretty excited to announce that they will be releasing their brand new Raspberry Sweet Dreams beer today at their establishment in St. Cloud at 4 pm! Apparently it's dessert in the form of a craft beer. That's pretty hard to beat in my book.
