Here are some of the top business stories in St. Louis Park:
Steel Toe Taproom
Steel Toe Brewing's taproom is now open.
Since August when Steel Toe received the St. Louis Park City Council's blessing, owner Jason Schoneman has been working on the perfect taproom to compliment the brewery located at 4848 West 35th Street.
Last weekend was opening weekend for the taproom.
From Steel Toe's Facebook page: "We had a great time pouring pints for everyone! Thank you for such a great STB Tap room opening weekend. We highly encourage you to come back again and again!"
And Steel Toe customers seemed to enjoy themselves as well, with comments such as these:
It was nice to meet you last night, Jason, and the place looks great! The beer is good, too.
My wife and I stopped in and had a pint of Dissent. Great looking room which I am sure will get even better. Big crowd. We could barely get in. Congratulations Jason and all at Steel Toe!
Was there last night...was pretty busy...When are you going to take over next door and double the space?
