Craft beer favorites

We asked some of our Wines & Spirits experts to pick their favorite local brews … and here’s what they chose!

Indeed Day Tripper Pale Ale: Featuring dark hops and citrus notes with a complex, malty backbone. Pairs well with anything salty or fried, as well as Southwestern-style dishes like fajitas.

– Kevin Cunningham, Wines & Spirits Manager at our St. Louis Park store


Summit Porter: This beer’s roasted malts offer up light coffee notes leading to a slightly sweet, chocolate finish. Pairs well with soft, creamy cheeses, soups, stews, smoked foods and chocolate.

– Christi Olson, Wines & Spirits Manager at our Golden Valley store

Boom Island Hoodoo Dubbel: Lightly hoppy and full-bodied with dark malt flavors of cocoa, espresso, caramel and an ever-so-subtle hint of banana. Pairs well with a hearty meal, but equally delicious as an after-dinner sipper.

– Tabetha Carda, Wines & Spirits Manager at our Woodbury store

Surly Furious: An amber-colored ale with citrusy, hoppy aromas and flavors, balanced out by a chewy caramel malt backbone and refreshing bitter finish. Goes great with any meal!

– Jason Newell, Wines & Spirits Manager at our Chanhassen store
