Beer Dabbler Highland Fest

The next Beer Dabbler festival, Summer Beer Dabbler at Highland Fest is right around the corner – Saturday, July 21st from 1-5pm (doors open at 12:30) at Hillcresst Park in St. Paul as part of St. Paul’s Highland Fast.

Tickets are  $30 in advance or $40 at the door (unless it sells out, and I think it will).  As per usual, you can sample beers from more than 50 local, regional, and national breweries as well as some special new and limited releases, including The Beer Dabbler’s Oak Barrel brew, made exclusively for the event by Big Wood Brewery.

Food? Yes. Details? Sure. Along with typical Highland Fest fare, Beer Dabbler will have some great food trucks on the premises, including Hola Arepa, Fork in the Road, Chef Shack, and Stanley’s on Wheels.

Other fun stuff: Live music by The Japhies, Little Man and Apollo Cobra; Fourth annual Highland Fest Home Brew Competition;
Stanley’s Northeast Bar Room Minnow Races; (beer) educational games and activities put on by the Science Museum of Minnesota’s Social Science and more!

Get your tickets online at or at The Ale Jail, Four Firkins, or Thomas Liquors.
