    Attn Twin Cities Folks: New Bourbon Bar!

    I have been working with the owners & staff of a new restaurant that's soon to open in Minneapolis. It's called The Butcher and the Boar, and the main focus behind the bar will be - you guessed it - Bourbon and Rye Whiskies!

    They plan to open their doors on March 7th, and the initial program will roll out with 60 offerings...with more to follow. 1oz & 2oz pours, themed flights and special bottlings. The 'mind behind' the beverage program is Jerald Hansen, a fixture in the food & beverage scene here for decades.

    This should be a great place to get SBers together!

    Hmmm..... sounds like a nice place to have a MN gathering soon!

    I'm certainly interested in seeing what he has.

    Re: Attn Twin Cities Folks: New Bourbon Bar!

    To start out with it'll be a number of the usual suspects, but includes some E.H. Taylors (first two offerings), PVWs, Antique Collections, etc. He's working on single barrel selections from BT, HH, Beam, etc., too.

    I suspect that if the response is strong, he'll continue to add older/esoteric offerings. One things for sure...he'll have the largest selection of any establishment in MN.

    Well, besides my home bar.

    I love this place! They should have named it heaven. Where PVW, Antique collection, EH taylor are "the usual suspects"

    I just checked out the menu of this place. It looks like a good time.

    Re: Attn Twin Cities Folks: New Bourbon Bar!

    Is it just me or does it seem like all the trendy cocktail/whiskey/microbrew/gastronomy bars have names that are in this format?

    "The XXX and the YYY"

    Not complaining about their existence, but I'm starting to wonder if there is a conspiracy. Maybe the Van Winkles are involved...

    And how come all the Rush-themed strip clubs in Canada are named "The XXX and the YYZ"?
