Chinese New Year at Boom Island Brewing

Inspired by the experiences of co-owner Qiuxia Welch from her native city of Chengdu, China, and to honor the Chinese roots of the brewery, Boom Island Brewing will celebrate the Chinese New Year on Saturday, February 6 at the taproom from 1-9pm.  Boom Island Brewing was built with the help of Qiuxia’s own parents from China. Despite knowing no English, they came to Minneapolis from China to help Qiuxia and her husband and brewer Kevin get Boom Island Brewing into operation.

Pints & Play @ Tin Whiskers

Water, malted barley, yeast and hops — 4 simple ingredients that in combination can be ordinary or absolutely sublime. Every brewer (professional and home) experiments with these components to brew their perfect IPA, best brown or oatmeal stout. Selecting the perfect sweetening agent — honey, beet sugar, molasses, maple syrup, the ideal combination of malted grains and which hops to add when require both a playful mindset and a the willingness to try, fail and try again.
