Brewery round-up: Where to drink (and eat) this weekend

Never a dull moment here in brew town

As always, there's lots to do this weekend if you are a fan of both beer and food. Top billing goes to the matchup of Butcher & the Boar and Pour Decisions Brewery in Roseville. Tonight B & the B is doing an in-house event there starting at 5:00 p.m. and going until food runs out, which might be like an hour later. The taproom opens at 4:30 p.m. with drafts and growlers are available for sale (cash or card) and lotsa meat (cash only).

Planning to stick more to Minneapolis? There's a whole lot happening there too:

It's Freewhweelin' First Friday over at Harriet Brewing in Longfellow and that means beer, music, and food will all be available from the brewery taproom. From 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Tollefson Family Pork food truck (with amazing natural pork hot dogs) will be parked outside and on Saturday, Simply Steve's rolls up.

Fulton's taproom is open tonight from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and for a good chunk of the night Vellee Deli will be outside slinging their beloved burritos.

Melch's Meat Wagon will be at 612Brew tonight and Bloomy's Roast Beef will be parked there on Saturday.

Stanley's on Wheels is at Summit's taproom in St. Paul tonight and tomorrow will be one of the breweries serving beer at Rock the Vine at St. Croix Vineyards in Stillwater. 

Dangerous Man released their Extra Special Bitter (ESB) just yesterday so read up on the style and go give it a try tonight. Taproom open from 4:00 p.m. to midnight.

The Starlight Diner truck will be open outside Indeed Brewing's taproom tonight and Gastrotruck tomorrow.

And finally, if you plan to go to Northbound Brewpub any time this weekend, be aware that not only have they added Sunday brunch, but I just got a tip that they are doing a Swiss-stuffed smoked juicy Lucy. Smoked. Juicy. Lucy. Oh, and they also have beer. Northbound Hefeweizen was just released a few weeks ago and is on tap at the brewpub. Skol, y'all!
