Keeping up with the beer scene in the Twin Cities is hard. How do you try all the latest varieties — not to mention offerings from out-of-town brands? With over 150 businesses and almost 600 beers to sample, the biannual Beer Dabbler festivals present the best and newest Minnesota beer while showcasing national talent as well. Enjoy local selections from Angry Inch, Cosmos Brewing, and Dona Chela Cerveceria; out-of-state makers like Lexington Brewing and Distilling, Milwaukee Brewing Co., and Prairie Artisan Ales; and old standbys like Guinness, Stone Brewing Co., and August Schell Brewing Co. The event is mostly outdoors, so dress for winter. A row of food trucks will keep bellies full, and live sets from the 4onthefloor, ZULUZULUU, and DJ Shannon Blowtorch will keep spirits high. Meat and cheese offerings inside the coliseum will provide a heated escape and help your palate stay fresh. For tickets and more info, visit beerdabbler.com. 21+.
