Suds: April 11

Well, the Minnesota Wild’s season is over, but not before they paid it forward to another great hockey team that a certain Anthony Cefali and Mike Lulich follow closely. That’s right, with the Wild win over the Dallas (should be North) Stars, the Chicago Blackhawks are going to the playoffs. Godspeed, Hawks. May you fly high to victory.

Let’s shift gears and think about spring and the beginning of the growing season in the Midwest with this great video from the Huffington Post on a few farms in tiny Lucan, MN, the home to 220 Minnesotans and Brau Brothers Brewing Co. So crack open a Brau Brothers Scotch Ale and enjoy this video.
