Urban Growler2325 Endicott StreetSaint Paul, MN 55114http://www.urbangrowlerbrewing.com/In March, we will be meeting at Urban Growler, a relatively new tap room owned by Jill Pavlak and Deb Loch (the first women-owned and -brewed in St. Paul, according to their website).  Deb will be there to give us a tour of their brewery, and I suspect, give us some good brewing info.  She is a former member of SPHBC and has been a prominent figure in the local homebrewing community (more info about each of them can be found here: http://www.urbangrowlerbrewing.com/about-urban-growler/).  PLEASE NOTE:  They have asked us not to carry-in anything, so unfortunately we may not bring any homebrew to this meeting.  However, they do have a good selection on tap — I think it was close to ten beers when I was there.  They also have a kitchen and serve food.
