8th Annual Tasty with Turkey

Another fine year with a full crowd of the young (but over 21), the old (very over 21), and both new and familiar faces.

Our 8th annual Tasty with Turkey wine sampling was as fun as always, with over 30 of our new and favorite wines paired with some fantastic Thanksgiving foods.

Big Sample Day

The way we see it, being the last stop on Broadway Ave for Minneapolis Open Streets was basically the finish line, and what better way to celebrate a long trek than with some free wine, beer, and hard seltzer (which may have been our favorite).

Had to break out several excuse me's to get through the crowds. The big hits: White Claw, Bauhaus, Colome Torrontes, Lagunitas, F-Town (and their UNREAL peanut butter porter), and loads more.

What can we say? Sometimes the best is saved for last.

First Sunday Sales Grill & DJ

After a long and boring 8,000 liquorless Sunday streak, Minnesota's ban on Sunday liquor sales has ended. We made it a true summer Sunday and reason to celebrate with a beer tasting and $1 hot dogs while DJ Chris spun some tunes.

Long story short, the beer went fast, we're out of hot dogs, and we even had rapper Lil Flip stop in for some pics.

Now where's the bill to make this a holiday?

Barley John's Beer tasting

Of course a wild rice ale would be brewed in the Midwest, and of course we LOVE IT. We even convinced everyone who came out to try Barley John's Wild Brunette Wild Rice Brown Ale. Their Mango Double Pale Ale was also (in an entirely unbiased opinion from the liquor store that poured it) fantastic.

Blue Chair Bay Rum Tasting

With winter hibernation at an end, and thirsty Minnesotans waking up from their cold, dark slumbers, our Blue Chair Bay Rum tasting had everyone swapping their wool sweaters for tanks and shades. We poured favorites like their Coconut, Banana Cream, and Key Lime Cream rums.

pamplemousse wine tasting

We admit it, we love wine more than most things in life. That's why when we tried Pamplemousse rosé, we just had to share it. Everyone who came out loved this light and fresh wine with natural grapefruit and peach flavors. This is one we'll be sampling again and again.

local craft liquor tasting

You could almost taste the loud, Midwestern, passive-aggressive accents with every sip. Our local craft liquor tasting was a hit! Young Minnesota companies like Skaalvenn and Tattersall offered their lines of liquors while neighbors like Wisconsin’s J. Henry & Sons reminded the crowd of their smooth tastes.

7th annual tasty with turkey

Disclaimer: No turkeys were pardoned in the making of
this event. The crowd gets bigger every year. Our wine and
Thanksgiving foods pairing brought in every type of (21 and over) customer, and from the smiles and empty glasses, we’d say it went over pretty well.
