Gabe Meerts stopped by my corner office at GBM yesterday morning to let me know that A) Northfield has a new homebrew club called the Milltown Mashers ("Turning grains into grins around Northfield, MN"); and B) the club is hosting a "learn to homebrew" event on the patio of the Contented Cow this Saturday, November 3rd from 3-7pm, part of National Learn to Homebrew Day.
Somebody please tell George Kinney!
I first got to know Gabe when he and his wife Sarah were about to move to Northfield from Michigan in the spring of 2011. He emailed me questions two important things: cell phone coverage and neighborhoods. They and their two young kids ultimately settled in the Heywood Park neighborhood. Sarah teaches in the psychology department at Carleton; Gabe is a full-time substitute teacher in the Northfield schools.
