Award-Winning Minneapolis Barbecue Sauce at Midwest Pantry
Local Food & Gift Show

Midwest Pantry’s Spring Event Features Northeast’s Triple Crown BBQ Sauce
Among Top Locally Crafted Products.

Triple Crown BBQ Sauce


(March 13, 2014) MINNEAPOLIS—Triple Crown BBQ Sauce will be at the spring Midwest Pantry Local Food & Gift Show on Sunday, March 16. Triple Crown is brewed in the heart of Northeast Minneapolis and is a three-time Blue Premium award winner at the Minnesota State Fair. Owner Andy Wright aims to make this product readily available across the region.

“The number of local products that are introduced into the food industry continue to increase,” Wright said. “We’re finding that more and more consumers enjoy having a small-batch, homemade product, resulting in an increased demand for local goods.” Smaller batches result in sellouts, which in turn seem to drive more demand. Midwest Pantry’s aim is to sustain these local food movements. This upcoming event will showcase the best products Minnesota has to offer. With more than 30 producers at the show, goods—the majority of which are organic—range from sweet cupcake mixes to spicy spreadable cheese, natural perfumes to soy-based candles. “It’s fun to discover exceptional products that are home to the city you live and work in.”

The Midwest Pantry Local Food & Gift Show is a private event that enables wholesale buyers to purchase locally made, hard-to-find products. The show is on Sunday, March 16, 2014 and takes place at the Grain Belt Brewery Bottle House in Minneapolis. Doors open at 11:00 a.m. and close at 6:00 p.m. The event is free of charge.
