MN Equivalent to 60 Minute IPA

I'm recently transplanted to southern Minnesota, land of ten thousand lakes but no Dogfish Head. It's 90 degrees and humid. What locally available brew will best substitute for my good old 60 Minute IPA? The successful candidate will be plenty bitter but will not have a ridiculous ABV and will not taste like a *!@# grapefruit.

Looking for a 10+ year old book about a stuffed bear in a classroom cave

Years ago I picked up a book at random that I thought had "Creative Education" or "Classroom" in the title, but every search I've done comes up empty. It's written by a teacher that used a stuffed bear that lived in a cave in the corner of an elementary classroom. I also recall a chapter on a 'Mr. Pen'. I'd like to find it again. [more inside]

Identify this children's book

Asking for a friend: "I read a book when I was very young, a fantasy story for kids, that featured a character called Airy Bear, who would inflate himself and thus leap and bounce about. I cannot remember the name of this book and I really, *REALLY* want to know what it is. Help? The internet (or at least my search-term-crafting-fu) is failing me."

Mouse Girl in Paris

[Bookfilter]: A friend asks "HELP! About 20 years ago I found a picture book at the library. It was about a little mouse girl who was being raised by a bear in Paris. The mouse had a name like Angelina -- but NOT Angelina Ballerina. Got any idea what it was?" Does this description ring any bells? Thanks!

Looking for picture of chain-saw carved bear for tattoo reference - hard to find

Looking for a picture/drawing of a bear statue from behind (possibly facing forward) - from what I recall, it looked like a chainsaw-cut carving of a brown or black bear out of a tree. Could be B&W lineart of one and I recall the grooves of the "fur flaps" being very deep but symmetrical - not rough-cut and not rounded. Thinking of using it along with a drawn "cub" of similar look & feel for a tattoo. [more inside]

Bear Ambition

I would like to wear a bear costume for Halloween, but the only storebought options I have found on eBay and elsewhere online haven't quite matched what I'm looking for. This is basically what I'm after, as a reference. Or possibly even this one or this one. If anyone out there knows where to find something similar that would fit a 5'9" 130 lb person, I would be thankful (bonus points if I can buy it in the Vancouver, BC area) Full disclosure: I plan on drinking beer from a growler with 'Honey' written on it.
