Central Minnesota has a rich and long tradition with beer and brewers.  Author Jacob Laxen joined me on WJON this week to talk about his book "Central Minnesota Beer; A History".  Jacob worked with the Stearns History Museum to uncover some of the information for the book.  The book includes information about Cold Spring Brewing, O'Hara's Brew Pub, Pantown Brewing, Beaver Island and more.  Listen below.
