This Brewery took one man’s “bad habit” and turned it into a very good brewery.  Bad Habit is out of St. Joseph, MN just outside of St. cloud. We tried the Hang Up Blonde, the churn it Up cream Ale, the Good Guy American Pale Ale, and the Dark Addiction Stout.  Definitely worth the trip to Central, MN as this is the first of our episodes you can’t find in stores . . . yet!
