Minneapolis Hops To It

The Minneapolis City Council is considering an ordinance change that would allow breweries to sell growlers directly from their stock without going through a distributor. According to the Star Tribune, growler sales can add up to and extra $268 per barrel, making a start-up brewery a little easier to manage.

St. Paul's Flat Earth Brewing already sells growlers direct from the brewery. St. Paul was a step ahead of its bigger Twin, approving the growler change in 2006.

Here's hoping that Minneapolis sprouts a few new breweries.

About damned time! No wonder it's so hard to start a brewery in MN, most go to Wisconsin or elsewhere!
