While new breweries can be found all around Minneapolis, St. Paul has quietly caught up both in number and quality. The city has one of the state’s oldest brewpubs (Great Waters), one of the largest and most award-winning breweries (Summit), and beer businesses located in some of the coolest historic buildings (Flat Earth, Lake Monster). This weekend, GetKnit invites beer lovers to get on a bus and ride to breweries to sample the many hops and barley flavors of our capital city. A sister event to the summertime Rails and Ales, this tour of 11 St. Paul beer makers is more than a pub crawl. It includes two free pints, live entertainment, access to one-off beers, random prizes, and more. Early drink tickets are sold out, but later check-in times are still available. Tickets also score you a Metro Transit pass to and from the Union Depot. For more info, visit getknitevents.com/brews-buses. 21+.
