Now in its ninth year, the Beer Dabbler brings thousands of revelers to the Minnesota State Fairgrounds to sample a plethora of brews. At the event, the biggest outdoor fest of its kind in Minnesota, there will be over 160 breweries and more than 500 different beers to try. They will include exciting beers from local companies like Bent Paddle, Surly, and Barrel Theory, as well as efforts from out-of-state makers such as WarPigs, Pipeworks, and the Brewing Projekt. Live music will be provided by St. Paul rapper Dem Atlas, and there’s also a silent disco and a meat-and-cheese tasting planned. Expect a smorgasbord of food, drink, and entertainment amid snow, sleet, and maybe even a little sunshine. Tickets and more info can be found at beerdabbler.com. 21+.
