When it comes to craft beer festivals, there are two approaches to the menu: either the more the merrier or a heavily curated selection. Mixed Culture is in the latter category. Sure, Fair State and roughly 20 additional breweries will pour several of their own beers in the cozy Northeast beer garden. But even with those numbers, this is a carefully put-together event that showcases what a mixed-culture beer can be. It’s an opportunity to highlight some of Fair State’s interesting techniques, and a chance to try beers not typically found in Minnesota from the likes of Half Acre, Threes, and Burial. Many of these beers spent half a year or more in barrels to get their funky, fruity, and tart notes. After three hours, they will be gone. 21+. Session one is from noon to 4 p.m.; session two is from 5 to 9 p.m. Find more info at www.eventbrite.com/e/mixed-culture-2019-tickets-58821424464.
