Edina Family Launches Dampfwerk Distillery

Stop by the new Dampfwerk Distillery in St. Louis Park and your tour will involve quite a few introductions. First, there’s Ralf Loeffelholz, who left a decades-long career in product management to follow a passion project years in the making. He officially launched Dampfwerk in 2016, combining his chemistry and engineering expertise with a hankering for the old-fashioned spirits and the culture he grew up around in Bremen, Germany.

Pumpkin Spice Pastries Arrive at Patisserie Margo

Patisserie Margo has all things pumpkin spice. Pumpkin tarts, pumpkin macarons, pumpkin craisin muffins, pumpkin and vanilla swirl cheesecake and pumpkin cookies with maple icing. “A lot of times it’s just the spices and not the pumpkin,” says owner Margo Bredeson, “but we have both.”

Pumpkin spice generally refers to a combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and clove. At Patisserie Margo, they add real pumpkin to the list.
