Historic Grain Belt Brewery Complex // 19 13th Avenue Northeast, Minneapolis // 1-5pm // $45
ABR is sort of the standard bearer of Minnesota craft beer festivals – not necessarily the oldest, but certainly an event by which other local festivals are judged – and rightfully so. Over the course of 13 years folks like Dave Berg, Paul Norton and Laura Mullen helped to shape this fest into a barrel of awesomeness. Beer, music, food, and education – all in the shadow of the old Grain Belt Brewery.
