STOP! RIGHT NOW.
Drop everything. Tickets for All Pints North are still available as I write this (Wednesday night, to be published Thursday) [Edit: still available at 11am Thursday]. So drop what you’re doing, grab a ticket and head to Duluth for the weekend. (Click here to buy tickets.)
Now in its 4th year, All Pints North returns to Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth with a huge array of craft beer, samples, education, live music and other fun.
Quite frankly, this is one of my very favorite festivals. Many years ago the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild created beer festivals that set the bar high for all other local festivals and All Pints North is no exception. You really can’t go wrong – the self-professed “Beer Capital of Minnesota” is indeed a great place to sip a beer sample or thirty while gazing at Lake Superior and watching as freighters pass.
I suggest you make a weekend of it. Duluth is beautiful… and ready for you. Hotels aren’t exactly cheap this time of the year, but I promise you’ll have a good time. Sadly I can’t make it this year.
Tickets are $40 in advanced and $50 day-of assuming they’re still available.
