COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Alexander P. Anderson, the son of Swedish immigrants, was born in 1862 and raised on a farm on the outskirts of Red Wing. He became interested in botany as a young man, and ultimately discovered that shooting heated grains from a gun would cause them to explode into “puffs.” Anderson sold his idea to the Quaker Oats Company in Chicago and forever revolutionized breakfast cereals with his invention of puffed wheat, rice and corn. After a successful career as a scientist and educator, he moved back to Red Wing with his wife, Lydia, and their family. Anderson continued his research at their Tower View Farm estate, which exists today as a center for the arts. We dedicate this refreshing wheat beer to the life-long work of Professor Anderson – “the man who shot wheat from cannons.”
