A. Same place, in a tent.
B. In the new brewery.
C. In a tent by the brewery.
Progress on our new brewery continues to move forward. Photos here show the view of the tanks from what will be the taproom bar, a look into Valkyrie's Pizza, the seating area in the taproom and the stairs to the loft.

Grape Stomp Fans! Join the TRIVIA game!
What is going on with our guys in this photo?
Best answer gets a bottle of our new Crimson Rose!
#carloscreekwinery #mnwine #crimsonrose
This is most certainly true.
I think I'll start this weekend!
Very limited supply of this wine - it is doubtful the supply will hold out until Grape Stomp - but you can buy it on-line or, of course, at the winery!
Charles Dickens gives us a lovely description for the month that can't decide whether to be Winter or Spring. The month when we can't decide do we wear down or flip flops? One thing is certain, we should drink Rose' - lots of Rose'. I highly recommend our new Crimson Pearl Rose', which is on its way to Paris for the annual 'Mondial du Rose' wine competition.
It's been a long winter. Buy some right now. You deserve it.
It is beautiful out there.. Enjoy some Rose' in the glorious sunshine!
