Harriet Brewing.
Minnesota breweries were well represented at yesterday’s Autumn Brew Review. I had the pleasure of chatting with Paul, one of the brewers at Harriet Brewing, located in the Longfellow neighborhood at 3036 Minnehaha Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN. He was enthusiastic about being part of the Longfellow neighborhood and said he hopes to give back to the community in more ways than just brewing great beer. One of the great things about Harriet Brewing is their support of local artists. At Autumn Brew Review an artist painted the skyline of Minneapolis.  
Here are a few more of the photos I took at Autumn Brew Review in-between tastings.

Probably the coolest truck I’ve seen in a long time. Spotted in the Kingfield neighborhood of Minneapolis.

I’m writing my recap of the Loring Park neighborhood led by Ren (wr3n) and Julie and discovered interesting information about one of the properties Ren showed me:
 The Ladd House: 131 Oak Grove StreetCurrently under review to receive historic preservation status, “131 Oak Grove Street is one of a few remaining opulent, late 1800s residences in Loring Park.The Ladd House was constructed by W.D. Lewis for Henry E. Ladd in 1889 for an estimated $18,000. Harry Wild Jones designed the building in the Richardsonian Romanesque style.”  (Source: City of Minneapolis Historic Preservation Study)

Waiting for the bus with Scooter, the US Postal Service Mail Carrier on the intersection of Lyndale and Lake Street. He delivers mail in Whittier - Route 803 on Blaisdell between 26th and Lake Street. If you see Scooter, say hello- he’s super friendly!
