Roseville ‘brewstillery’ pushing for state law change


Mike Munzenrider • Bartley Blume, who owns Roseville’s Bent Brewstillery, is pushing for a change in state law that would allow for businesses such as his, which makes beer and spirits, to sell both at the site of production. Blume is seen in the Bent taproom with the brewstillery’s second whiskey offering, One-Twenty, which went on sale Dec. 2.

Minnesota state law is clear: If a company both brews beer and distills spirits, it can have a taproom or a cocktail room where its production takes place, but it can’t have both.
