GrillFest is Made Possible By
The growth of the Frattallone’s Ace Hardware & Garden stores since Larry Frattallone opened the first one in 1975 has a lot to do with philosophy. While most others in the marketplace insisted on getting bigger and bigger – creating SuperStores – Larry and his sons, Tom and Mike, held firm to the idea that customers would rather talk with knowledgeable people in a welcoming, friendly environment. They were right, and they keep proving it every day. There now are 22 Frattallone’s Ace Hardware & Garden Centers in the Twin Cities metro area.
The MAGIC is in the STASH. For our stash series, our brewers reached into their secret stash of Cryo Hops® to deliver uniquely flavorful, less bitter, & beyond approachable beers! Cryo Hops® from Yakima Chief Hops are a hop product in which Lupulin, the yellow, pollen like material within the hop cone (which carries the essential oils & acids used for brewing), is cryogenically separated from the hop with a Nitrogen bath at sub-zero temps. Brewing with Cryo Hops® helps us create easier-drinking, less bitter IPAs vs. traditional hops, without sacrificing the juicy flavors and tropical aromas that drinkers love.
Family-owned since 1974. For two generations, the Lohr family and their winegrowing team have been leaders on California’s Central Coast. J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines farms approximately 2,300 acres of estate vineyards in Paso Robles dedicated to Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah and other red varietals, and 35 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Sauvignon Blanc in the St. Helena appellation of Napa Valley. Additionally, J. Lohr also farms over 1,300 acres of cool-climate vineyards in Monterey county. From this expansive palette of fruit, Jerry and his team have created four tiers of wines to emphasize the rich, flavorful diversity of J. Lohr's estate vineyards – J. Lohr Estates, J. Lohr Vineyard Series, J. Lohr Gesture and J. Lohr Cuvee Series. Crafted to highlight bold, concentrated flavors, while also reflecting a vibrant sense of place, each of these tiers offers a unique expression of J. Lohr winemaking.
