    If this proposal pans out I will be downright giddy!

    "The craft beer bandwagon could be pulling into Shakopee.
    Three residents recently made a pitch to the city to convert a former fire station in the heart of Shakopee's historic downtown into a micro-brewery with a taproom. The group said their goal would be to open in June 2013, initially producing about 2,000 barrels a year.
    In addition to a taproom, they would like to offer brewery tours and on-site sales of their beer in refillable glass growlers. Other customers would include area restaurants, pubs and liquor stores."

    I live right on the border of Shakopee and had no idea they had a historic downtown.

    Would be great if they can make a good product. Not a lot of beer destinations in that area.

    This would be cool if the product is good. Seems like every neighborhood will sooner or later have their own beer offerings which is a glorious thing.
