Celebrate St. Patty’s Day AND get politically involved in the craft beer scene on March 17th at 7pm. We’re not saying you should ditch the green beer or kissing everyone 1% Irish or more, we’re saying you should bring that to First Avenue and join the consumer rights advocacy group MN Beer Activists Rally for Sunday liquor sales.
The rally will take place in the First Ave Mainroom, where local bands Romantica, White Iron Band, Silverback Colony, and Mark Andrew (who was a contestant on NBC’s The Voice) will be preforming. Ian Rans of Drinking With Ian, a liquor and humor filled talk show, will host the event.
Money raised will go towards the Minnesota Beer Activist’ efforts to legalize Sunday sales of alcoholic beverages in Minnesota. There will be opportunities to purchase MN Beer Activist merchandise and sign the MN Beer Activists’ Sunday Sales petition at SundaySalesMN.org
“The mission of the MN Beer Activists is to raise awareness of alcohol-related issues that are outdated or harmful to consumers,” said MN Beer Activists director Andrew Schmitt. “The biggest of these is the prohibition on Sunday Sales, which literally sends money over our borders every single week. This concert is the highest-profile event we’ve ever done, and it should also be the most fun!”
Tickets for the MN Beer Activists St. Patrick’s Day Rally for Sunday Sales are available now for $10 and will be $15 at the door.
