Roseville will growl on Sundays

Bent Brewstillery owner Bartley Blume explained how to fill a growler: Rinse it first, then give it a blast of compressed carbon dioxide in order to dry the inside. Then fill it, using a tap-extender so the 64-ounce bottle is filled from the bottom, to minimize foam. (Mike Munzenrider/Review)

City council updates code to allow for Sunday sales of growlers of beer
Ever since Minnesota tweaked its liquor laws back in May to allow for the Sunday sale of beer growlers, Roseville brewer and distiller Bartley Blume said he’s seen the same scene play out over successive Sundays in his taproom.
Sunday growler customers who show up eagerly at Blume’s business, Bent Brewstillery, at 1744 Terrace Drive, leave with nothing to take home because Roseville has yet to catch up to state liquor laws.
“We have had a lot of people coming in on Sundays for growlers,” Blume said, adding that he had to lay out the top-to-bottom way liquor laws work to those potential customers.

On Friday, June 5, Ramsey County Attorney John Choi announced his office would file criminal charges, as well as a civil petition, against the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis over its handling of former Roman Catholic priest Curtis Wehmeyer.
“The facts that we have gathered cannot be ignored, they cannot be dismissed, and are frankly appalling, especially when viewed in their totality,” Choi said during a media briefing on Friday, June 5. “The story of Curtis Wehmeyer and how he came to sexually abuse three young boys cannot be told without including the organization and its hierarchy that ordained him and at all relevant times had the power to remove him.”
