It was on March 14, 1988 that a San Francisco physicist organized the first ever pi-day. now 30-years later we still celebrate the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. But let’s not celebrate with more math equations, but with actual pie of course. Twin Cities Live reporter Kelli Hanson went to Sara’s Tipsy Pies in Stillwater.
Tipsy Pies began in 2012 when Sara’s triplets went off to school and she was looking for a way to re-enter the workforce while raising five children. Sara’s Tipsy Pies was born and soon she was catering ‘Pie Bars’ at weddings and selling pies at events like the Irish Fair in St. Paul. In 2015, Tipsy Pies debuted at the Minnesota State Fair and launched frozen products in grocery stores. Today, on the heels of a record-setting third year at the State Fair, the company is growing rapidly with new products at retail locations; numerous inclusions on the dessert menus of Twin Cities restaurants; and participation in several Minnesota festivals and events. Additionally, local beer, wine and spirits companies, including Lift Bridge Brewery, Fulton Brewery, Finnegan’s, Two Gingers Irish Whiskey and Chateau St. Croix Winery partner with Tipsy Pies to add a punch to Sara’s handmade desserts.
