@t54r4n1 Insider tips would be welcome, I'm sure!
@lawremipsum will check it out with her, thanks!
I’ve been planning on “restarting” local Homebrew Website Club meetings this summer. https://indieweb.org/Homebrew_Website_Club
Interest checks have been low but there is one other good fellow interested. I’m planning on having it at Wicked Wort brewery in Robbinsdale because I’m selfish and live near there, but if anyone who might be interested knows of a better venue, let me know!
@t54r4n1 that’s a good point—it’s probably more important that it “work” phonetically than …whatever the “written form” term is…graphologically (?)
@stelepami @densetsu it’s a super slow burn. Like interminably long. But there are so many other good things about it (the prose, the well-drawn characters, the blend of history and fiction, the successful and subtle knitting of healthy gender politics into various parts of the story, the atmosphere, the footnotes, the gradual construction of a magic mythos without ever making it the story’s focus, and the payoff) that it’s one of my favorite novels ever.
@densetsu They somehow incorporated everything I enjoyed about the novel. It’s semi-cooperative too, which I like.
Root has been another favorite lately.
@densetsu my brother brought over his copy of the Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrel game yesterday and now I’m considering buying one for myself.
Breweries in MN can’t sell growlers once their production hits 20k barrels/yr. https://bringmethenews.com/minnesota-lifestyle/castle-danger-can-no-longer-sell-growlers-but-wants-to-change-the-law
Thing is, we should actually keep this rule since it gives smaller breweries an advantage over large ones.
The correct winning solution for Castle Danger and everyone else: keep production < 20k barrels and **raise prices**! The demand is clearly there.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library.
