Saturday Party Culminates Grand Opening Week
Navigating a long road filled with some surprising obstacles, two local entrepreneurs are prepared to share their vision with South Minneapolis. Longtime friends Ryan Widuch and Tom Boland were determined to bring a craft beer specialty store that also provided a full selection of wine and spirits to their neighborhood. After over a year of hard work they will celebrate with a grand opening December 3rd through the 8th. The whole week will include many special guests, raffles, giveaways and special discounts
Saturday’s party will feature a full lineup reflecting the decisions made throughout the store: selection without pretense, emphasis on a comfortable atmosphere for all, and ongoing commitment to education.
The Tasting Room schedule will start the education in earnest, building to Saturday’s bill of Lucid Brewing, Leslee Miller of Amusée Wine and Kevin Welch of Boom Island Brewing. Free beer and wine pairings presented by SCRATCH Food Truck and live music DJ’s and performers round out the celebration.
Elevated Beer Wine & Spirits is South Minneapolis’ new craft beer and wine destination. Offering a full service liquor store with a focus on atmosphere, selection and expertise, Elevated Beer Wine & Spirits is taking the modern liquor store to the next level.
On Saturday, December 8th @ 4pm – Come join Leslee Miller of Amusée for a fun BUBBLE BATH! Taste a number of sparkling wines from around the globe, including a brief tutorial regarding bubblies and the regions they come from. Taste, explore and stock your cellar with a selection of interesting sparkly goodies from around the globe!
Tasting is FREE, why would you pass it up?
