It's beer drinking season!

What do we like? Beer! How do we like it? With pizza and tacos! Where do we like it? In the park!

You want it, you got it.

The 25th annual City Pages Beer Festival takes place on Saturday, May 20, at West End, St. Louis Park, with live music from The White Keys and accordionist Bill Koncar and the ever-popular Brian Boru Irish Pipe Band.

There will be food by R Taco, Big 10 Restaurant, and WildEarth WoodFired Pizza.

A portion of proceeds from the tasting will benefit Finnegans, a non-profit brewer that gives 100% of profits to Minnesota charities to help the working poor.

Buy a VIP ticket and avoid lines with early admission, while enjoying complimentary eats from the Yard House, Cherry on Top Confections, and Valley Pastries, plus full beers from Enki Brewing including Tailfeather IPA, Cacao Porter, Litmus Pilsner, and Hootenanny Hefeweizen. Also avail yourself of private bathrooms (you’re gonna want ‘em), and more.

VIP tickets are limited and available here for $60.
