Limited-release beers, world-class breweries, unlimited pours, and live music (Erik Berry from Trampled by Turtles) in Minneapolis-St. Paul on April 23, 2016

With more than 220 beers from 80+ breweries from Minnesota and beyond, we’re committed to providing a taproom experience for attendees. Each brewery has been asked to bring a taproom-only beer and/or a rare limited-release option.
