The 8th annual Red Stag Block Party comes with a twist. The event has been rebranded with a new partner in local beer mag The Growler, and is now called In Cahoots!
What remains is another excuse to ignore the day-to-day responsibilities and drink on a Sunday afternoon in August while enjoying Minneapolis's summer weather and a ton of local bands, including Alpha Consumer, Sonny Knight & the Lakers, Frankie Lee, and more.
The In Cahoots music lineup includes: 2:00-2:40 p.m. Romantica 3:00-3:40 p.m. Frankie Lee STREET 3:40-4:00 p.m. - Epitome No Question 4:00-4:40 p.m. Alpha Consumer STREET 4:40-5:00 p.m. - Epitome No Question 5:00-5:40 p.m. Shiro Dame STREET 5:40-6:00 p.m. Epitome No Question 6:00-6:45 p.m. ELnO 7:05-8:00 p.m. Sonny Knight & the Lakers
New this year is a collaborative effort by eight Minnesota breweries. Four teams of two will collaborate to create four new beers. August Schell Brewing Company is paired with A Sociable Cider Werks, Fulton Beer is working with Dangerous Man Brewing Co., Bang-Brewing comes together with Summit Brewing Company, and Bent Paddle Brewing Co. joins Fitger Brewing Company.
The new flavors will be debuted at the block party and then voted on by attendees. Each team will pick a charity and a portion of the night's proceeds will be donated to the winning team's charity.
In Cahoots! Free, 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., rain or shine, Sunday, August 3 at the Red Stag Supperclub. RSVP.
