    Will be heading that way after my wedding in May, anything worthy of stopping by, or should I load up before leaving Minnesota?

    You might want to check out Family in Galena, but there's no Surly down that way, so you'll probably want to stock up, anyway. ;)

    Assuming your in the twin cities, Decorah is on the way to Dubuque so I would stop by TG and load up.

    There is also a restaurant in Elkader, Schera's that always has an interesting tap and bottle list.

    Family Liquors is in East Dubuque, not Galena, but it's worth a stop. You can buy singles of any beer which is nice if you just want to try things. Van's is just a bit north of Family, and decent.

    Van's or Family. Also, if you go a mile or two up into Wisconsin, there's a couple of gas stations that carry New Glarus. I usually stock up when I'm in Dubuque.

    Hit up the National Brewery Museum in Potosi, WI. Not too far away and their on site product at the brewery is pretty good.
