    In Google, search: "Magic Hat Beer" MN 2009

    The third result was a facebook listing for a Magic Hat Beer tasting on September 18th at Dennis Brothers Liquors, 7155 Jorgenson Bros. Lane S., Cottage Grove MN.

    Call them.

      I've seen it at Zipp's Liquor store on Franklin Ave in Minneapolis, and a friend purchased it at Sharrett's Liquor Store on Raymon & University in St. Paul.

        On Tap: Mac's Industrial

        In the bottle (both 6-pack and 22oz): Sentyrz.

        Both in Nordeast.

        I like this beer as well, great fruit (apricot) and not an overpowering hopiness.

          Big Top Liquors in the MIdway has the #9 in the big bottle.... Northeast Social does too if you get hungry want to eat something with your #9

            The Happy Gnome has it on tap.

            I've always bought it at Bacchus Wine and Spirits in Shoreview Mall.

              We will be visiting Minnneapolis from Vermont next month. If it weren't for the liquid restrictions on the airlines, we would bring you a growler (especially if you are tailgating at the Vikings game!)

                It is in the refrigerated beer section at the Haskell's on Ford Parkway and Buster's on 28th has it on tap.

                    Ha, I was there today and thought of this thread when I saw it there. Glad you found it. Looks like you took a bottle or three.

                      took a 6-pack of the #9 and one of the howl, the howl reminds me of the leinie's fireside nut brown
