Minnesota Craft Beer Central

You may remember that Woolley's won Best Beer Bar in Bloomington by local Sun Current Readers at the beginning of the year. Well, we've continued on that tide, going deeper with our love of craft brews, adding a few new tap lines and giving Ben the noble charge of sourcing the best brews he can find for The Corner Bar.


This week, we just got in two kegs of Schell's Stag Series #5, their Czech Dark Lager, and it is a GREAT beer. Don't judge on the basis of color, you simply must try this specialty brew before it's gone. You just might be pleasantly surprised!

For our full tap list as of today, Monday, May 14, 2012, please see below:

You'll note that there's something for everyone! Stop in and try a few with friends over a half-priced appetizer at Happy Hour this week.

And make sure to stay tuned on Twitter and Facebook, as we keep you posted on new taps. Cheers!

Oink Outings Resuming

This past August, our very own Chef Peter Christenson was named the chef for the Minnesota Pork Board's last Oink Outings tour of the 2011 season.

Oink Outings tours are a wonderfully educational experience during which food producers are paired with food preparers and joined by moms to allow open communication along the food chain (so to speak). 

After a winter hiatus, Oink Outings are resuming on Tuesday, May 15 for the 2012 season. We're so happy to be part of such a great program again this year. Kicking things off, attendees will head to Goodhue, MN to the Schafer Family Farm.

Along with touring the farm, where the farm family showcases modern life as a pig farmer, the group will also  again visit Chef Peter and Woolley's for a cooking demonstration. Last year Chef Peter highlighted several pork recipes, including Blue Cheese & Prosciutto Wrapped Peaches, Bacon Wrapped Scallions, and Pork Diablo Bites!

We can't wait to welcome everyone back this year!
