Twin Cities Beer Fest August 11th

Another new beer festival? Not exactly. This year’s Twin Cities Beer Fest was on the scene last year under the moniker, Minneapolis Beer Fest, but thanks to a venue change, it returns as Twin Cities Beer Fest.This event promises to be a “grand sampling event” with hundreds of beers in unlimited pours. Food trucks? Check. Live music? Check. Games? Yessirree. Competitive eating? Holy shit, yes.

The event takes place on August 11th from 3-7pm in the old Met Stadium parking lot at the Mall of America in Bloomington. Free parking, of course, will be plentiful, but the wiser choice, of course is to hop on the light rail and use that as your sober cab.

Proceeds benefit the Finnegans Community Fund. I didn’t make it out for this one last year, but with any luck, I’ll check it out this year.

    You know it’s a good beer fest when they’re offering Groupon 50% off tickets from day 1.

  2. Jason says:

    WTF. I’d rather they offer the deal early vs. the week before when I paid full price already!

  3. Ben says:

    Sounded like a drunken mess last year with the only craft beer being available to those in the VIP area and even then, there wasn’t much. Similar to the City Pages Drunkfest.

    Did they offer a Groupon for this one? I must have overlooked that.

    JJ Taylor is involved. Surely Mr. Falkowski would be on hand… he’d make it fun, wouldn’t he?

  5. Crafty says:

    but they had two separate Four Loko booths last year… oh wait…

  6. JungleButt says:

    Groupon haters pay full price. That’s their punishment. On the other hand, TCBF had better have craft beer available to all us peasants in G.A. I didn’t pay $17 to drink Leinenkugals or Summit.
