About The Pourhouse

Our Prohibition-themed bar is a jack of all trades. Stop by for a delicious American style lunch during the week, hang out at our happy hour 3-7pm Monday through Saturday, or party with us on Friday and Saturday nights. And with our massive 25 foot HD projection screen and 50 TVs, we’re the absolute best place to watch sports in the Twin Cities!

Drinks and food sponsored by Chank Diesel of Chank Fonts and Matt Krieger of Spectrum Studios!

chankAlphabetician. Builder of Fonts. Chank Diesel. That’s me. And I create everything from custom fonts for corporations and ready-to-buy fonts for professional designers to the occasional free font for the masses. My fonts are seen everywhere, instantly setting the intended tone for packaging, advertising, video games, publications, you name it. It may only be 26 letters (well, uppercase and lowercase, plus a fistful of symbols) but what they say is more than what they spell. You’ve got a project. A vision. The letters A-Z. Now, what do you want to say? [email protected]


For much of the past few decades, the most advanced equipment Spectrum had was a drawing table. And our idea of cutting-edge technology was an X-ACTO knife. Today we operate a “virtual” studio built on megabytes and pixels and other modern wonders. Still, we remain committed to the low-tech notion that you deserve nothing less than world-class service.

Spectrum Studio is a Minneapolis based artists’ representative for commercial illustrators and animators. Our clients include graphic design firms, advertising agencies, and corporations.
