Fair State Brewing Cooperative has put a stake in the ground on the funkier side of beer. The Northeast Minneapolis brewery will dig into the recesses of their cellar to celebrate all things sour at their Mixed Culture (Festival of the Funky & Sour) on June 25 from 2–8pm.

The event is free to attend and Fair State will be offering 4 oz. and full pours of the below beers while supplies last (some of these are extremely limited). The guys from Oakhold Farmhouse Brewery, who have been working on Fair State’s sour program as they build their own brewery outside of Duluth (follow their progress in our “Building a Brewery” series), will also be on hand pouring some of their test batches.
