So I had this idea to start a blog about all the old beer signs I seem to spot all over town during the day. I always found it amazing that these signs stay up years after the actual bar/business has long since closed. Why is it that they always stay up and don’t take them down? Im not sure really but most of these are very classic beer brands very native to Minnesota and Wisconsin.

I soon came to realize that many people on flickr have albums dedicated to that stuff and I love that they do cuz it gives me ideas and hints to go find them for myself and post them here along with the others I spot every so often. Ive always liked the old Hamm’s bear commercials of the 70’s/80’s and every knickknack they made and sold with their name on it and wanted to bring it back somehow.

I then decided to mix it up a little bit with talk about everything beer related to Minnesota and Wisconsin from the past and the present. I do enjoy beers from all over the country/world but thought that would be very time consuming covering all of that because so much is happening beer wise in my home turf of The Twin Cities. This area alone is currently blowing up with new breweries and beer sampling events going on around town all the time,so why not cover that and still enjoy the good ol days of beers long since past right?

So here I am blogging about beer and all its related things. This is something I thought I would never have done before but it has turned into a fun hobby. I have met alot of people that are involved in the local scene and into beer way more than I am haha. I like to spotlight these people,places and things that make the upper midwest a gem for any beer lover. I don’t claim to be a literary genius or even a beer expert for that matter but I do this for the fun of it and I hope you enjoy the site.

P.S. Please excuse any typos along the way because I like to sample the actual beer while writing the review of it haha.
