Interview with Joe Alton from The Growler Magazine

The Beer Dabbler is giving the Twin Cities a new reason to growl.

The Growler — named after the half-gallon jug used to bring tasty suds home from breweries — is a free bi-monthly magazine focusing on craft beer and the community and culture surrounding it. Published by the Beer Dabbler, who are known for hosting craft-beer sampling events around the Twin Cities, the magazine can be found wherever beer is guzzled.

Managing editor Joe Alton joined Steve Seel and Jill Riley on The Morning Show to talk about the origins of the magazine, Minnesota's craft brew culture, the new Beer Dabbler storefront in St. Paul and bike-and-beer pairings. (Alton jokes "if you're on a fixed-gear, you're sucking on a PBR.")
