We started the month as we do with a Taproom Takeover at Urban Growler. Turn out was low but its still good to have people come out to support our local businesses.
Rahr and BSG invited us out to Rahr Malting facilities for a tour. We had a few beers at the Stube and then toured the campus. It was amazing to see acres of barley going through the malting processes.

We held our March meeting at Northern Brewer Minneapolis. Thanks to Northern Brewer for hosting us, and thanks to everybody that came out. We had a full house and that is really great to see.
