Minnesotans pride themselves on being a hardy bunch, and on February 4, 2017, The Beer Dabbler is giving them another chance to prove it.
The 8th Annual Beer Dabbler Winter Carnival returns to the Mighty Midway and Warner Coliseum on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds for an afternoon of sampling 150+
local, regional, and national craft breweries, live music, a meat & cheese showcase, and lots more.
Last year’s Beer Dabbler Winter Carnival sold out, drawing almost 10,000 people out of hibernation for a great celebration of craft beer and Minnesotan hardiness. Participating breweries included local favorites like Fulton, Surly, Bent Paddle, and Dangerous Man, regional darlings like Iowa’s Toppling Goliath and Wisconsin’s Central Waters, and national heavy-hitters like Ballast Point, Deschutes, and Lagunitas.
One of the defining characteristics of all of The Beer Dabbler’s festivals is a focus on fun. While the entertainment lineup for the 8th Annual Beer Dabbler Winter Carnival has yet to be announced, previous festival headliners have included the likes of Lizzo, Heiruspecs, and Sonny Knight and the Lakers. This year’s lineup promises to continue in the tradition of high-quality live entertainment.
General admission and VID (Very Important Dabbler) tickets will go on sale at a pre-sale party November 3rd at Stout's Pub. Tickets will be available online and at select retailers at 12:00PM CST on November 4. More details, including the brewery list and other attractions, will be announced on The Beer Dabbler’s website and social media channels in the coming weeks.
