Where will you be this weekend?

I know where we’ll be - enjoying some fine suds in Michigan. If you don’t have any grand plans or if part of you plans include heading outside the metro in the general southwest direction and you find yourself in need of some grub and a beer, check out Patrick’s on Third in St. Peter.

Yep, the same St. Peter that it seems more than their fair share of tornados have torn through. They’ve apparently spared Patrick’s, which quietly sits a block off the main drag. Not much to look at from the outside, but listed on Summit’s website as the only place in St. Peter where you can grab a Horizon Red Ale.

Besides Horizon, they’ve got a couple Bell’s, Schell’s and Leinie’s on tap in addition to a few imports and macros. Find yourself there on a Sunday and you might be tempted by some tasty looking breakfast/brunch items. But you really should try one of their burgers. My suggestion…the D. Stark. It’s pretty simple: burger topped with BBQ sauce and peanut butter, but man is it good! I can also vouch for the Hinden burger: sauerkraut, bacon, southwest sauce and pepper jack cheese. Their fries are pretty darn good, too, as are the tator tots but wouldn’t bother with the ranch fries. Instead, if you want some spice to your potatoes, ask for a side of the southwest sauce.

Whatever your long weekend consists of, ENJOY! And although I won’t be able to bring any beer back, you can be I’m gonna enjoy it and just might get around to writing about it. See you in a few days!


  1. Hey, you guys have a great trip. Thanks for the write up on Patrick's, never would have guessed! I will be heading out of town as well, Denver to be exact. Should be a fun beer filled long weekend! Cheers.

    Glad you guys enjoyed Patricks. I spend entirely too much time at that place!
