The St. Louis Park craft beer store sponsors the Minnesota Freeze, a club team.
When Jason Alvey moved to the United States in 2001, he had to get used to plenty of new things, including a different way of playing football. Alvey, the owner and founder of St. Louis Park craft beer store The Four Firkins, is a native Australian, so naturally, he grew up a fan of Australian rules football. “It’s an absolute religion," he said of "footy's" popularity back home. "You cannot understate how popular this sport is. “I have a lot of fond memories of it.” But here in the United States, "gridiron"—what Australians call American football—is king. So when Alvey found a group of dedicated Aussie football players right here in the Twin Cities, a sponsorship—and kinship—came quickly. For the past three years, The Four Firkins has …

The crew at the St. Louis Park beer store sing German stein song "Zum Zum Zum."
The good folks at the Four Firkins in St. Louis Park really love beer. So much so that they sing about it. Staff at the local craft beer store recently put together a music video to "Zum Zum Zum," a German stein song produced in 1914 for the Minneapolis Brewing Company (which later became Grain Belt). Singing is store owner and founder Jason Alvey, along with Bryan Buser, Ian Finch, Doug Hawkins, Josh Rosengren and Michael Wagner. Well done, fellas. Cheers to all of you!

The St. Louis Park bar and restaurant was able to raise food sales to city standards.
It's been a long year and a half for Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill, but the St. Louis Park establishment has finally hit the city's 50-50 food-to-liquor ratio and will go off probation. The bar and grill has had a probationary liquor license from the city since February of 2011, when Toby Keith's sales were at 31 percent food and 67 percent liquor. The city has required local establishments sell at least 50 percent food since 2000 in an effort to keep standalone bars out of St. Louis Park. As punishment, City Council can put non-complying locales on probation, impose fines, or even revoke liquor licenses. At a Monday night City Council meeting, Toby Keith's reported food sales of 51 percent and liquor sales of 49 percent since …

The St. Louis Park location and others are taking one house brand off the shelves and offering refunds.
Trader Joe’s corporate officials say they are acting “out of an abundance of caution” and ordering the recall of one type of its house brand peanut butter over salmonella concerns. “Trader Joe’s Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter” should not be eaten, the Monrovia, Calif.-based specialty grocery chain reported. “We have no confirmed information that suggests this peanut butter is unsafe to eat,” the company stated. But the food should not be eaten “pending health-related inquiries.” Trader Joe’s has one St. Louis Park location, on Excelsior Boulevard in the Excelsior and Grand complex. The Food and Drug Administration posted the company’s voluntary recall on its web site, but did not comment on the company’s statement. The potential …
