With the Super Bowl fast approaching, we are excited to announce our “official” response to the clever Cease and Desist we received from Bud Light back in December. As you might have heard, in addition to the ceasing and desisting, it also landed us two tickets to the big game. As much as we would love to let our employees joust for the right to go, our employees have instead decided to raffle the tickets off in an attempt to raise $50,000 for their favorite charities. We would also like to invite the Bud Light team and the rest of the citadel of Minneapolis to enjoy our new beer (Dungeon Juice), and come play with us this weekend at Minnesota’s Premier Pop-Up Inflatable Adult Human Football Playground! Full details below. 



Starting on Tuesday, January 30th at 7 pm, any interested party will be able to come to Modist to purchase a chance to win TWO SUPER BOWL TICKETS for only $25 (cash only, limit 2 per customer) Some notes:

  • We will be only raffling off 2,000 tickets, limit 2 per customer, with a goal of raising $50,000!
  • These are badass seats: Section 120, Row 18, seats 15 and 16
  • In addition to raising money for our causes, our goal is to also give Minnesotans a really good chance at winning. If you buy 2 tickets, your chances are 1/1,000 (assuming we sell them all). If you and whoever you’d bring get to tickets, your chances are 1/500 – for a prize with a current market value of close to $10,000. It’s kinda cool.
  • The winners of this raffle will be selected and announced on Saturday, February 3rd at 9pm at Modist’s taproom in the North Loop.
  • The winners need not be present to win, but must be able to – you know – go to the game (if you win, we’re going to force you to wear free Modist clothing and take some pictures for us inside of the stadium)
  • The drawing will be broadcast live from Modist’s Facebook and Instagram accounts for all to see. Can someone borrow us one of those bingo ball roller things?
  • Since we are not legally allowed to run a raffle, the raffle will be handled by our friends/defenders/heroes at the Minnesota Craft Brewer’s Guild.
  • All proceeds from this raffle – every single dollar – will be donated to employee-chosen charities.
  • This is us, these are our charities, and why we love them:


Just before the raffle begins, we will also be releasing a brand new excessively hopped nectar of the juice gods IPA we’re calling DUNGEON JUICE!!!! Dungeon Juice is brewed from oats, wheat, and Golden Promise barley and then dry hopped with an exorbitant amount of Simcoe, Azacca, and Citra hops. It’s like, the official beer of dungeon dwellers or something.  It will be on tap, and we’ll have 300 crowlers for purchase beginning at 5 PM on Tuesday. Limt 3/person. Here’s a pic:



We’re gonna, like, rent some huge inflatable football things and let you play with them. It’ll be hilarious.
