One of the best signs of summer is when Minnesotans begin enjoying their beer outside. And at this yearly tasting folks will be able to sample quite a few enjoyable brews in the great, urban outdoors. Pick up your sample glass and hit the asphalt to try something new, or revisit your old favorites. Breweries sharing their best stuff include Cold Spring, Crispin, Deschutes, Guinness, Green Mountain, Herkimer, Summit, and Tallgrass. The evening will also include live music. A portion of proceeds will benefit the St. Paul Jaycees. Visit www.citypages.com/beerfest for tickets. 21+.
