The original Hamm' s brewery was located in St .Paul's Swede Hollow on the corner of Payne and Minnehaha Ave . Minnesota still does not allow the sale of intoxicating beverages on Sunday (3.2 beer can be purchased on Sunday) Intoxicating beverage (off sale hard liquor ) can only be purchased in licensed liquor stores ,which are stand alone businesses..

All true, Steve. I often ride my bike behind the old brewery, which is mostly abandoned and falling down.

But there are signs of hope. 15 tap rooms opened in the Twin Cities last year, part of a micro brewery boom. This was largely due to 'the Surly Law' -- a change to allow on site sale of beer for smallbrewererys. Not sure what the definition of 'small' is since it includes Summit which has a pretty impressive operation. The law was passed to allow Surly to build a $20 million dollar tap room that opened last week

One of the best little brewerys is 'flat earth brewing' which recently moved to part of the old Hamm's brewery. Another portion has been taken over by a company that wants to do agraponics and fish farming.

Jim, the picture for the 'Land of sky blue waters' was taken from the dining room at the 'End of the Trail' lodge at the end of the Gunflint Trail in Northern Minnesota. Lindy worked there when she was in college.

I grew up in the Highland Park area of St. Paul and lived in the Macalester Groveland area until I retired .I still own my home in St.Paul and retain my Minesota citizenship.
I wired parts of the original Summit Brewery ,when it was on University Ave and also did work at the Schmidt's Brewery on W 7 th St. I have also camped and fished on Gunflint Lake ,the scenery was great ,not so the fishing . Maybe ,I will run into you over on the East Side. We go to St. Paul often and stop at Morelli' s . We really like their little butcher shop ..My wife and 4 daughters took the tour at the new Summit Brewery and highly recommend taking the tour . As my father used to tell me "Behave yourself and stay out of Minneapolis"
