Advocating for all things beer and booze requires a little coin. Accordingly, consumer-driven nonprofit Minnesota Beer Activists, which has made Sunday liquor sales one of its core issues, is throwing a fundraising bash Saturday at Dangerous Man Brewing Co. Proceeds from a silent auction with tons of beer-geek-geared items will help cover the group’s operating costs. The northeast Minneapolis brewery will also be tapping a one-off beer for the event.

Noon-6 p.m. Sat. • 21-plus • 1300 NE. 2nd St., Mpls. •

Spirit of the Norse

This week Norseman Distillery became the first in a wave of upcoming Twin Cities’ small-batch spiritmakers to get product on the market. Founded by former homebrewer Scott Ervin, Norseman debuted with a vodka (available at select metro retailers) made with local grains. It plans to release a gin, a rum and eventually a whiskey. Ervin has set up his newly minted distillery in the northeast Minneapolis building that also houses gallery space CO Exhibitions.
