• The Tapline’s Social Distance-Friendly Guide To Drinking Craft Beer
    By Tapline Staff. As we find ourselves nearing the conclusion of the dog days of what can only be described as one-giant-kidney-stone-of-a-summer, us craft connoisseurs have had to be craftier than ever when it comes to seeking solace with the sudsy elixir we commonly refer to as ‘beer’. Distant seem the times where we’d gather by the dozen and rejoice our affection toward the divine creation of this yeast-fermented malty concoction, replaced by the mandated […]
  • This Super Cool Brewery Paid Us To Promote This Deliciously Refreshing Hazy IPA… What, You Got A Problem With That??
    By Conway Diddle.  Ahh, beer. Nothing quite like it, aye? You love beer, we love beer, that’s why we devote countless time and energy into writing about it, and you allocate precious money and effort into consuming and researching it. So who fucking gives a shit if some random brewery starts paying us to promote some of their under-selling beers on our influential media platform? Hmm? I mean, win-win, right? We get a little cold […]
  • Passing For Progressive: How to Protect Your Brand From Leftist Scrutiny
    By Linda Bloomie. It’s no secret that 2020 has been one of the most, if not the most, devastating, taxing, and traumatizing years in American history. The term ‘unprecedented’ fails to even capture how trying it’s been for us citizens to navigate our ways through a global pandemic, civil uprising, and the postponement of James Taylor and Jackson Browne’s world tour. But while Americans of all walks of life have been impacted by the instabilities […]
  • The Tapline’s Step-by-Step Guide to Successful Drunk Driving
    By Tapline Staff. We here at The Tapline go to great lengths to label ourselves as the craft connoisseurs you’ve come to know and trust.

  • 7 Beer Belly Shapes To Complement Your Personality
    By Brooks Harper. To the untrained eye, beer bellies are all the same. One look at your enclosed flesh pouch generally informs the passerby that they’re in the presence of a worldly nosher; one who eternally dons their accumulating doughy mass of palatable mementos. But the fact of the matter is that these portable, jiggly receptacles of edible antiquity are more than merely physical manifestations of one’s fondness for routinely indulging in lavish libations and […]
  • Twin Cities Dining Guide For People Who Don’t Give Any Fucks Right Now
    By Rachel Glass. Look, are more people dying right now than usual? I guess so. Is there scientific evidence suggesting that people-crowded areas such as restaurants and bars are hotspots for transmitting a virus that has caused people from all around the world to temporarily sacrifice their general routines and interests in an effort to curb and reduce mortality rates? Probably. Are there ongoing civil rights protests that could make one feel guilty or ashamed […]
  • 6 Beers That Will Make You Question Your Masculinity
    By Fred Manhoof. Look, I’m a man, okay? That means I pound brews, I sniff snatch, and I routinely pleasure myself by pouring scalding hot nacho cheese on my nipples while I blare Breaking Benjamin and penetrate my Vikings-colored fleshlight; it’s what we do. Now that my masculinity has been established, I gotta make a confession… Straight up, I’ve been drinking some pretty out there shit lately.  I know what you’re thinking; ‘Oh Manhoof, don’t […]
  • 6 Local Breweries That Are Totally Not Racist
    By Randy Garwick. The innocence, purity, and nonpartisanship of craft beer is simple to explicate. It’s a malty elixir that’s incapable of judging any pair of lips that bestow upon its polished cylinder orifice. In fact, the very nature of its candid existence may very well serve as an inverse ideology to today’s assessment-obsessive culture, as its suddy confines beg for appraisal from any palette willing to absorb its hoppy fluidity, rather than be quick […]
  • Emiction Distillery: Promoting Trickle-down Economics
    When you walk through the doors at Emiction Distilling you get the feeling the world can be a  better place. These are the words spoken by owner David Frothingham. You’ll usually find him with one thumb firmly hooked in his trademark rainbow suspenders, a snifter of his newest concoction in the other hand. With so many distilleries opening up and selling sub-par alcohol in highly stylized bottles, what makes Emiction so great? Why are they […]
  • 8 Local Bands & Artists You Need to Know Right Now
    By a twenty-two year old desperate and unpaid intern named Gabe. Hi! I’m Gabe! I’m twenty-two, desperate, broke, in serious debt (mostly student loans, but there was a brief phase of underground cockfighting I dabbled in during college that I’m not proud of and still paying off what I owe) but boy do I love music! I love music so much that I don’t even care that I don’t get paid to take time out […]
