Limited-release beers, world-class breweries, unlimited pours, and live music in Minneapolis-St. Paul on April 1, 2017

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. The event will be held at the Minneapolis Convention Center Hall E.

All proceeds will be donated to Twin Cities Habitat For Humanity.
