“It was a wonderful night for Don,” Loren Swanson, a Rotary Club member from Falcon Heights, said of the 79-year-old former Ramsey County Commissioner and Roseville resident.

Roseville will growl on Sundays

Bent Brewstillery owner Bartley Blume explained how to fill a growler: Rinse it first, then give it a blast of compressed carbon dioxide in order to dry the inside. Then fill it, using a tap-extender so the 64-ounce bottle is filled from the bottom, to minimize foam. (Mike Munzenrider/Review)

City council updates code to allow for Sunday sales of growlers of beer
Ever since Minnesota tweaked its liquor laws back in May to allow for the Sunday sale of beer growlers, Roseville brewer and distiller Bartley Blume said he’s seen the same scene play out over successive Sundays in his taproom.
Sunday growler customers who show up eagerly at Blume’s business, Bent Brewstillery, at 1744 Terrace Drive, leave with nothing to take home because Roseville has yet to catch up to state liquor laws.
“We have had a lot of people coming in on Sundays for growlers,” Blume said, adding that he had to lay out the top-to-bottom way liquor laws work to those potential customers.

At its June 2 meeting, the Mendota Heights City Council approved a plan to seasonally transform the Marie Park hockey rink into four adjacent pickleball courts and one basketball court.
