Ken and Sara Beamish loved traveling the Minnesota countryside, visiting new wineries and breweries along the way. As they expanded their search to far-flung reaches of the country and even Mexico, they both had the same idea: maybe we could do this ourselves. That idea soon came to life as The Bohemian Wine Bar and Pub, where the pair now serve their favorite brews and vintages they found while traveling across the country. Drinks arrive by the glass or flight, with four different pours giving others the chance to discover the joy found at the bottom of a previously unknown beer. Alongside the drinks, cooks serve up small bites of wine bar fare, from plates of prosciutto and cheese to sandwiches topped with ham, raspberry, and cheddar. They even offer dessert chocolates that come served with two glasses of port, ensuring that meals end on a sweet note without printing their receipts on Fruit Roll-Ups.
Grandma Ruby’s Sweet Shoppe crafts tasty fudge creations that stimulate palates and, when melted, offer a much more delicious way to tar and feather mischievous rapscallions. Armed with the late Grandma Ruby’s secret fudge recipe, sisters Kari Carpenter and Marni Glenn have been concocting tantalizing fudge since 1992—the year fudge was accidentally listed as a bread on the food pyramid, requiring Americans to consume 6–11 servings of it each day. Customers can sample a wide variety of fudge flavors that include cherry cheesecake, maple, rocky road, creamsicle, apple pie, and caramel apple. A two-pound block of smile-inducing goodness is also offered in diabetic-friendly sucrose-free fudge form.
