The Meadow Wildflower honey used in our Honey IPA comes from the Minnesota Honey Company in South Minneapolis. It is a late-summer harvest honey and reflects the variety of local flora found in this region. Minnesota Honey Company proudly sources a variety of pure local raw honeys for the everyday honey lover and specialty food and beverage producers, like the Urban Growler.

Come on in for brews, food and live music 7:00 pm to close on Wednesdays.
Sister Theda is a folk force and an Americana alliance. We come from traditional Irish ballads, creamy classic rock, the Muppets, and boom bap hip hop, but none of that really matters. We believe everything is better as a waltz, and our voices sound best among the stainless steel mash tuns of a brewery, or on a porch in Saint Paul.
Come hear us harmonize every fourth Wednesday at Urban Growler!
Sister Theda is: Julia Brown, Adam Jones, Lauren Piper, Andrew Rich.
Spring/summer dates are:
- Wednesday, April 29
- Wednesday, May 27
- Wednesday, June 24
