As the local craft beer scene continues to grow, so does our desire for the gear that goes with it. M.A. Rosko takes us to the Beer Dabbler store at 1095 7th St. West in St. Paul.
Matt Kenevan, the guy behind the Beer Dabbler tasting festivals, opened the store in early September. It features local and national beer-branded t-shirts, pint glasses, growlers, bottle openers—even an iPhone cover/opener that
M.A. snapped up immediately. In all, about 70 breweries and 15 local artists are featured in the shop.
Kenevan also started a free, bi-monthly local "beer lifestyle" magazine called the "Growler" to help you keep up with our ever-expanding beer scene. It's available at about 250 local craft-beer friendly locales.
