This morning we took a tour of northern MN in celebration of National Travel and Tourism Week.  Tourism is a $15 billion dollar industry in MN and generates more than 265,000 jobs - making up for 11% of private sector employment.  Today we visited with the fine folks that work in the tourism industry in northern MN.

We spoke with Mark Lelwica from the Roundhouse Brewery in Brainerd recently.  He told us how he got into being a brewmaster, what life is like at the Roundhouse Brewery and what's brewing right now.   Tonight, all Brainerd listeners are welcome to stop by the Northern Community Radio Community Advisory meeting which will happen at the Roundhouse Brewery from 5:30 - 7pm.  We'd love to meet you and hear your thoughts about our programming.  Stop by the Roundhouse Brewery tonight!
