The best way to start the weekend is with a round of brew. Fortunately, Grumpy's in downtown Minneapolis has an event that offers rare pints and free snacks (while they last). Typically starting at noon on Fridays, beer lovers gather each week to tap a cask, enjoy free apps, and eat and drink until everything is gone. Past brews have included Indeed Stir Crazy with extra chocolate, Fulton Worthy Adversary with cherries, Northgate Brewing's Wood Aged Old Ale, and Lift Bridge Farm Girl Thai Style (with Thai basil and blueberries). Watch the Facebook feed at www.facebook.com/grumpysdt for beers offered that day.
Editor's Note: A previous version of this blurb stated that the beer was also free. That is incorrect. The food and great ambiance are free, the beer is not.
