Weekend brewery round-up: St. Paul Summer Beer Fest and more
St. Paul Summer Beer Fest is this weekend
Hopefully this week's cover story got you all inspired to go check out some of our local brewery taprooms, but this weekend's top billing goes to the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Craft beer fans will gather tomorrow, June 15 starting at 2:00 p.m. in the International Bazaar at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. More than 100 brewers will be in attendance giving out samples of their beers and food vendors will be scattered throughout the grounds.
Lift Bridge Brewery in Stillwater has a busy Father's Day weekend planned. It kicks off tonight with a Brews Cruise on the St.Croix River where you'll be able to sample the newest beers from the brewery, eat cheese, and enjoy live music. Tickets are $30 and are available from Stillwater River Boats or at Lift Bridge Brewery. Then on Saturday, Lift Bridge will be the official beer vendor at the Rockin' Ribs on the River event in Bayport, Minnesota -- a town that's become synonymous with BBQ. Tickets are just $10 on the day of the event in Lakeside Park.
