Last week we ran from World of Beer in Lowertown, St. Paul. It was a quick jaunt down to Shepard road, then along the river for a fantastic out and back run. Even before we made it to Shepard it was obvious that something wierd was happening as all traffic was being diverted away from the road. We were still able to make it down on to the running paths along the river though. When we got to the train bridge over Shepard we quickly saw the problem. Apparently a large truck had a major accident that resulted in the entire road being closed in both directions. Even with that, we were able to make it passed and enjoy a fantastic evening along the river.
At the turn-around point we encountered some strange characters, as you can see from the photo below. Luckily they kept to themselves and let us enjoy our run! Temps for the run were balmy, sticking in the mid-50’s. This will probably go down as the warmest run we will have for quite some time.
World of beer was definitely impressive. They have a great tap list and a very impressive bottle selection. The food was pretty fantastic as well, with the giant pretzel taking top marks!
Come join us next week back at Wild Mind Artisan Ales! We are heading back next week to join the Minnesota Home Brewers Association for a tour of the facility. Join us for our run at 6:30 with a tour shortly after we finish.
