Have a Beer with the Fair State Brewing Coop Tonight

Fair StateTonight from 6-9pm at Republic Calhoun Square in Uptown, the guys from the new Fair State Brewing Cooperative are having a meet and greet event. Go, grab a beer, bring a friend and learn about how you can become a member. If you’re already a member, you can earn a referral bonus worth $10 at the taproom for each friend who signs up. Whoever has the most referrals by the time the brewery opens gets to work with head brewer Niko Tonks to design a special release beer. Check it out!

More info on their Facebook page.


Lyndale Tap House Brooklyn Beer Dinner Tonight

The Lyndale Tap House in Lyn-Lake is having a Brooklyn Beer dinner tonight (March 12, 2013) at 6pm. It’s four courses and $40 – pretty reasonable, if you ask me.

Check out their Facebook page for more information and the tasty details. Call to make reservations: 612-825-6150.

And have you seen their new t-shirt design by Chuck U? It’s almost as great as the stuff he did for Indeed.


Hopped Up Caribou Beer Festival

Looking for a fun excuse to get out of the Twin Cities and head north for the weekend on an adventure that doesn’t involve the cabin, going fishing with your family, or barbecuing in the heat? Check out Lutsen, Minnesota’s second annual Hopped Up Caribou Beer Festival July 13-15, 2012 for beer and fun all day(s) long.

Prices are $35 per person for the Saturday (July 14) beer garden or $130 per person for the weekend lodging package (prices vary depending on the number of people and the lodge). The 2- Night Stay & Dine package is sold out unfortunately, but you can still experience the rest of the beer fest!

Top 5 reasons to check it out:

  1. There will be homegrown brewing heroes there; you get to rub elbows with the Minnesota brewing glitterati. Check it out for yourself: The brewery list
  2. All the brewing heroes have all been hand-picked, so not only do they complement each other and their unique styles to create a larger more wonderful well-rounded experience, but you’re guaranteed to like (or at least respect) all of them
  3. You get to enjoy the sights of beautiful Lake Superior; it is the superior lake after all
  4. It’s the SECOND annual Hopped Up Caribou Beer Festival, so you know it’s a good time
  5. It’s less hot up there. Cool even. Go get yourself some of that!
