From Dinkytown to Edina. From Uptown to Downtown. The Metro Transit #6 bus gets you to school, to work, and at the end of the day, it gets you home. That’s what it means to 612 Brew co-founder Robert Kasak.
You see, before he was a brewer, Robert rode the #6 bus to work every day. More importantly, he rode that bus home every night. “To this day, when I see the #6 I think about home,” says Robert over beers at the 612 Taproom in Northeast Minneapolis. “That’s what it has always meant to me, and I always knew wherever I ended up, however far I’d wandered, or however much I’d over-celebrated, when I saw that #6 come by I knew it would get me home.”

It’s finally starting to feel like spring here in Minnesota. To go with it, I’ve whipped up a few Easter treats that will be perfect for you to make with the family or serve as a party favor!
This one is a favorite! Chocolate dipped strawberry ‘carrots.’ I originally saw these in a Harry & David magazine and knew I had to create my own version. They’re very simple to make and will have your friends and family “oohing and awing” over them!

The summer months bring out the best in fresh fruit. With our stores overflowing with sweet, irresistible flavors, it’s hard to ignore these healthy treats. One of my favorite things about summer is taking fresh fruit home every week to savor those distinct juices, which more often than not wind up dripping down my chin.

Just a couple of years ago we opened the first full-service grocery store in downtown Minneapolis and now we’re headed across the river to do the same in downtown St. Paul.
Opening May 15, Lunds Penfield will be downtown St. Paul’s first full-service grocery store!

For those of you shopping our stores on Fridays, you know about the best deli deal of the week: 5 Buck Cluck! We offer our hot, fresh and oh-so-delicious rotisserie chickens for just $4.99. Let me just say it’s extremely popular and an incredible value!
Our rotisserie chicken normally provides 4 servings. Where else can you find a hot, ready-to-eat, center-of-the-plate entrée for $1.25 per person?
When we first created the delicious flavor profiles for our rotisserie chickens, we wanted to make a statement. We wanted our chickens to be the best in town. I’m proud to say this became a reality.
