It may seem hard to imagine now, but there was a time when drinking in Minnesota was a simple thing, when pondering beer lists and bitterness units wasn’t just uncommon—it was preposterous. But that was then. These days—as the crack writers and editors at Mpls.St.Paul detail in the October issue (on newsstands now!)—the Twin Cities has become a boomtown of brews, a place where you can’t swing a multi-volume beer list without hitting a bona fide beer geek.
Which brings up an important question about the once-rare species: How many are out there? More importantly, have you—or someone you love—become one of them? To answer the latter, we’ve devised this scrupulously unscientific quiz. Just answer each true/false question honestly, and we'll do the rest. Good luck.
