Best of luck to you. We're lucky to have so many small brewers popping up around the Twin Cities. I can't wait to track some of this down and give it a taste!

Beer is easy to brew. Some malt syrup, sugar, yeast, hops and water in a 5 gallon Gott container. Seven days later you got beer! Not that big of a deal.

BEER is easy, GOOD BEER, well, that's a whole different deal. I know, my Dad made beer once--couldn't even stand the smell of it.

@greatx: Yes, making beer is easy; I make it at home. Making beer that tastes great? That definitely takes practice and skill. If you're drinking yours after 7 days, then I doubt it does. Making an exceptional, unique beer like a belgian beer time after time? That is quite difficult. I've failed on nearly every batch I've tried. This beer, which I've purchased and enjoyed, deserves the press. @jcinmn: The sidebar has a link to where the beer is sold. It also has a link to the brewery's website - which will tell you exactly where it is.
