Beer, cider, spirits, and food trucks: NE Brewer's Block Party is this weekend

If there are two things Minneapolis can't get enough of, it's block parties in the summer and breweries, well, really anytime. It only makes sense to pair the two, and that's just what Sociable Cider Werks is doing with the NE Brewer's Block Party this Sunday, July 27.

From 2 p.m. to 9 p.m., Social Cider Werks will host an event with live music, food trucks, and cider and beer from eight different local brewers. In addition to Sociable's own Freewheeler Dry Apple and Hop-A-Wheelie Hopped Apple ciders, there will be beers on tap from 612, Indeed, Northgate, newcomer Fair State, and many others. Each participating brewery will bring two different beers, which will be tapped in a mobile outdoor bar, and there will also be mixed drinks crafted from Norseman Distillery spirits.

Inside, the entire Sociable Cider Werks lineup will be on tap.

The Anchor Fish and Chips, Gastrotruck, and Simply Steve's will all be serving hot food, while guests get down to live performances by Enemy Planes, Whiskey Jeff and the Beer Back Band, Ft. Wilson Riot, Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures, Black Diet, RP Hooks, and Bomba de Luz. The block party is working with Eureka Recycling to make it a zero-waste event.
