Scott Carlson for "Twin Cities Beer: A Heady History"

  • SubText Books 6 West 5th Street Saint Paul, MN, 55102 United States (map)

Join SubText Books in the store on Friday, September 14th at 7:00 PM for an evening all about beer! Author Scott Carlson will read and discuss his book, "Twin Cities Beer: A Heady History," and a book signing will follow. 

The Twin Cities witnessed a recent explosion of craft beer breweries and brewpubs, but the region’s beer history reaches back generations. The Minneapolis Brewing Company introduced the iconic Grain Belt beer in 1893, and it remains a local favorite. Fur trapper and bootlegger Pierre “Pig’s Eye” Parrant established a St. Paul tavern along the banks of the Mississippi River in the early 1800s. The area has been home to some of the best-known beer brands in America, from Hamm’s and Schmidt’s to Yoerg’s and Olympia. Today, microbreweries such as Bad Weather Brewing, Summit Brewing and more than fifty others are forging new avenues. Join author Scott Carlson as he offers an intriguing history and guide to Twin Cities beer.
